Following a spring US tour, the band – comprising Avey Tare, Panda Bear, Geologist and Deakin – will hit the road on this side of the pond beginning November 2 at Dolan’s in Limerick, Ireland.
They will then make stops in Dublin, Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow before heading across to mainland Europe for a run of dates that will wrap up on November 27 in Cologne.
On the heels of recent singles “Prester John” and Scott Walker tribute “Walker”, the band have now shared a third track from their upcoming LP, “Strung With Everything”, an experimental, psychedelia-inspired record that clocks in at almost seven minutes.
The track comes alongside a colourful animated video directed by Abby Portner. Discussing her work with the band and the video, she said: “Recently for Animal Collective’s live shows I have been designing and animating all of the video content out of cut paper. I have been editing together symbols and coloured static silhouettes that match the music’s feeling and rhythm. The videos are like pictographs that tell a story organically and simply.
“For the ‘Strung With Everything’ video we wanted to continue with this process to match the style of the band’s live shows in a music video.”
