Animal Collective will be celebrating the January release of their newest album, Merriweather Post Pavilion, with a trio of US shows. The first on January 20th – the day of the album’s release – in New York City, followed by shows in Chicago and Los Angeles. All tour dates listed below.
Merriweather Post Pavilion is the ninth studio album from Animal Collective, recorded with Ben Allen in Oxford, Mississippi. After listening to this record, however, it’s clear that Animal Collective have transcended the everyday realities of numbers, locations and people and arrived at a spectacular, unique place. Animal Collective have made a universal record that makes the same beautiful sense on headphones by day, or soundtracking the small hours of the morning/night, or, you suspect, stretched out in a field on your back. Whether a state of mind, or a rest stop somewhere along the way, Merriweather Post Pavilion magnificently redefines your sense of direction.
