Animal Collective announce The Painters EP, a new companion release to last year’s album Painting With. The EP will be available digitally this Friday, February 17 via Domino, almost a year to the date of their 10th studio album’s release. The 12” vinyl and CD version of the EP, with artwork by Brian DeGraw. Animal Collective, play their next show on May 17th in Charleston, SC.
The EP contains three new and original tracks recorded during the Painting With era, and also includes a studio recording of “Jimmy Mack” (made famous by Martha & The Vandellas), a cover performed on their recent tours. Watch a lyric video for the opening track “Kinda Bonkers” below.
The band return to the US & Canada in May 2017 for headlining live dates including a show at the new venue Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, NY. This follows on a recent winter tour of Florida and an Animal Collective-curated three day camping festival in Big Sur, CA this past autumn. Find all the dates below.
