Animal Collective announce Sung Tongs world tour, want to know if you happen to have a leaf house where they can crash between dates?

Animal Collective announce Sung Tongs world tour, want to know if you happen to have a leaf house where they can crash between dates?

They’ve been to the past.

They’ve been to the future.

They’ve even been all around the afterlife (probably).

And, you know? The best place to be…is here.

No, not HERE-here. I mean ca. 2004. Sung Tongs, baby; SUNG TONGS — a.k.a. “the fourth studio album from American band Animal Collective,” which was “released on May 3, 2004 by FatCat Records” and which, nigh on 14 years later, Animal Collective’s Avey Tare and Panda Bear are back “to perform live in its entirety with tour dates throughout Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States.”

As you no doubt recall, the duo has only performed the illustrious album in full one other time, at Pitchfork’s 21st birthday party in Queens, NY last December. And at the time, you and me and about a zillion other COOL ASS PEOPLE who “don’t really like Animal Collective except for the stuff from Here Come The Indian through Feels” were bummed to have missed our chance to witness it.

Well, yeah. Turns out we pissed and moaned and ate our feelings for NO REASON AT ALL. Because tickets for Tickets for seventeen additional full-on Sung Tongs concerts will go on sale THIS FRIDAY (March 23) “at 10 am local time” (and yo: word has it from Noah himself that the super-secret password “sungtongs18” will unlock the super-sweet pre-sale on Tuesday, March 20 at 12pm local time, too). All show information is at My Animal Home Dot Net.

Incidentally, Sung Tongs was recently re-released on vinyl through My Animal Home and is available here. But since you already have like six copies of that shit and know the cover art and tracklist up-and-down, I’ll just skip all that crap and embed this extremely relevant video clip from Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey down below instead. Who’s excited!?
