“[Centipede Hz] captures the sound of studio wizards who are once again ready to unleash some sweaty savagery on the live stage.”
– NPR

Animal Collective have unveiled three new live videos preceding their North American tour, which starts later this week. The videos, a collaboration with The Creators Project, feature live performances from the band’s December 2012 Terminal 5 shows complete with psychedelic visual effects and overlays by Abby Portner.

The videos provide an in-depth look at Animal Collective’s live performance as the band prepares to head back out on the road this spring with labelmate Dan Deacon. In addition to previously announced dates, Animal Collective will also be playing an intimate, hometown show at the 930 Club in Washington, DC on June 10th. Pre-sale D.C. tickets can be found here. The band will also be playing a series of festival dates this summer, including stops at Bonnaroo, Govenors Ball, Camp Bisco, and more! Full dates above. For access to tickets and all the latest Animal Collective news, head to http://bit.ly/animaltix. For a chance to win tickets and more visit The Creators Projects blog.

The band and The Creators Project have also relaunched Animal Collective Radio, which last fall counted down to the release of Centipede Hz. The weekly radio shows featured different band members and guests playing mixes, while exploring the creative influences of Centipede Hz. The final live installment premiered the entire album with custom visuals for each track created by Abby. These videos are now available again in full for the first time since the launch at radio.myanimalhome.net.

Abby, who dubs herself the “visual person” for Animal Collective, designed the Animal Collective Radio site and visuals with band’s stage production and live performances in mind. Both the site and stage production feature a giant mouth and Centipede Hz album visuals. You can experience the fully realized prismatic audiovisual experience come full circle for yourself with the release of the three live videos and the relaunch of the Centipede Hz Radio albums visuals. In addition, The Creators Project is giving away two tickets to select shows on Animal Collective’s Cetipede Hz Tour. A limited number of entrants will also receive the 10″ single for Applesauce and a complimentary tour poster. For a chance to win, head over to http://contests.vice.com/animal-collective/.

Earlier in 2012, Animal Collective released their 10th and latest album Centipede Hz. The band’s first record since 2007’s Strawberry Jam to feature all four original band members, Avey Tare, Panda Bear, Geologist and Deakin, Centipede Hz was hailed by critics as a return to the band’s experimental roots.
