Animal Collective, the finest experimental psychedelic rock outfit to ever come out of Baltimore Maryland, are gearing up to release a proper followup to their breakthrough record, 2009's Merriweather Post Pavilion.

Centipede Hz will see release on September 4th.

“We’re really excited about this record and it’s been really fun jamming with those guys again," said de-facto leader Avey Tare (David Portner).

One the those aforementioned guys, Panda Bear (Noah Lennox), relocated to Lisbon, Portugal a few years ago, though he is confirmed to be participating in Animal Collective's upcoming tour.

Below, you'll find all of the announced dates for the North American leg of the tour. For the international dates, you'll have to head over to their official website and watch a fascinating, though headache-inducing video. You've been warned.
