Animal Collective have announced plans for a short UK and Ireland tour this November.

The Baltimore electro-psychedelic band will play four shows in London, Dublin, Glasgow and Manchester, following the release of their new album, Centipede Hz, which is set to come out on September 3. The dates make up part of a larger world tour.

Centipede Hz is the band’s tenth full-length studio album and their first since their 2009 effort, Merriweather Post Pavillion. It also follows the release in 2010 of the band’s “visual album”, ODDSAC.

Last month, Animal Collective revealed that they wrote their new record “as a rock band in a room”. Speaking on BBC Radio 1, Brian Weitz said that the band had “gone back to their roots” on the new record and moved away from the sample-heavy direction of ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’.

Animal Collective will precede the release of their new album with a two-track single later this month. The tracks, which are titled ‘Gotham’ and ‘Honeycomb’, will be released on June 26 via digital download and on 7” vinyl.

Animal Collective will play:

London Roundhouse (November 4)
Dublin Vicar Street (6)
Glasgow ABC1 (7)
Manchester Warehouse Project (8)
