New single and tour announced

Animal Collective continue their quest to be the band of 2009 with the news of a new single and some seriously big UK tour dates. Hark at the indie boys bemoaning their new success, and flogging their copies of Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished on eBay! Oh wait, they don't buy records, do they, the thieving wee swine. But we digress...

Animal Collective will release 'My Girls' on March 23rd, just in time to set off on a jaunt around the UK. 'My Girls' is of course taken from the new album Merriweather Post Pavilion, read our glowing track-by-track review, or Taylor Parkes' more cautionary appraisal.

March 22nd - Bristol The Trinity

March 23rd - Nottingham Rescue Rooms

March Mar 24th - London The Forum

March 25th - Leeds TJs
