Animal Collective is heading back out on the road for their first North American tour of 2013. Joined by fellow labelmate Dan Deacon, the band kicks off the tour in Boston on March 7th and finds the band traveling through Montreal, Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, and more.

The band also making a very special appearance at the Treefort Music Festival in Boise, ID on March 24th to cap off the tour. The band will once again bring their impressive stage show on tour, which was aptly described by Pitchfork as “giant, gap-toothed Nickelodeon dentures on either side, a curved inflatable structure that resembled scorpion tails dipped in PAAS dye, a centralized TV running constant, blaring images. Basically, the cover of Centipede Hz gone widescreen.” 

A pre-sale for non-festival dates will begin on Wednesday, January 16th at 10 a.m. local venue time. For early access to tickets and all the latest Animal Collective news, head here.
