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

Today marks the release of Animal Collective’s Monkey Been To Burn Town remix EP on Domino Records. Drawing from the band’s latest record Centipede Hz, the EP features remixes of “Monkey Riches” by Gang Gang Dance’s Brian Degraw, Chicago Juke producer Traxman and New York underground dance producers Teengirl Fantasy, as well as a remix of “New Town Burnout” by Seattle based hip-hop collective Shabazz Palaces. In honor of the EP’s release, Animal Collective has made Traxman’s remix of “Monkey Riches” available for stream.

Animal Collective is also happy to announce new additional tour dates to the upcoming North American tour. In addition to previously announced dates, Animal Collective will also be performing new dates in Los Angeles, Boise, and Phoenix. The band has also added two new festival appearances, including Treasure Island in San Francisco, and a headlining spot at MusicFest NW in Portland, OR. These shows come in addition to the band’s previously announced festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, Forecastle, and more.

Filmed in conjunction with The Creators Project, the videos catch the band’s impressive stage show, 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.”

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 Animal Collective’s experimental roots. The album can be ordered via the Animal Collective webstore here.
