At long last the quirky-but-awesome experimental rockers Animal Collective have unveiled details behind their upcoming new album – their first since ‘09’s critical revered Merriweather Post Pavillion.
In keeping with their affinity for “WTF” album titles, Animal Collective’s newest effort has been dubbed Centipede HZ and will final hit stores on September 4 through London-based indie favorite Domino Records. The album is expected to contain 11 tracks; however, two recently released tunes – “Honeycomb” and “Gotham,” which are streaming now but set to drop on a 7” in June – will not be found on the disc.
The album announcement comes on the heels of a new teaser video that the Baltimore art-rockers posted over the weekend on their website. Taking a page out of the “Tron” visual palette, robot voices can be heard revealing the tracklisting for the new effort, while “From us to you on Centipede HZ,” can be read at the bottom of the screen.
While a tour is bound to be announced soon, the group’s only listed state-side show as of now is an appearance at the iconic Hollywood Bowl on September 23.
Check out the Centipede HZ track listing, after the jump!
