Animal Collective Are Taking Their Experimental Classic ‘Sung Tongs’ On A Summer Tour

Deputy Music Editor

Animal Collective is a rare band with a handful of full albums that they could take on tour and please their core fans. Basically any of their releases from 2003 through 2009 — Here Comes The Indian, Sung Tongs, Feels, Strawberry Jam, or Merriweather Post Pavilion — hold up as full works and have the reverence needed to pull this sort of thing off. But after performing Sung Tongs in full last year at Pitchfork’s 21st birthday party, it’s that 14-year-old modern classic that has been anointed with a full tour.

For the run, the band will take the form of a two-piece to mimic how the album was recorded. That means that all the Geologist or Deakin fans out there will have to wait until the next time that AnCo comes to their town, as just Panda Bear and Avey Tare will be on this jaunt. The tour will hit both Europe and the US this summer, including stops in London, New York, and Los Angeles. Check out the list of dates below from the incredible live band.
