Animal Collective to perform 'Sung Tongs' on 2018 summer tour

In 2004, indie rock band Animal Collective released their fifth studio album titled Sung Tongs. The 12 song release is one of two albums to feature founding band members Avey Tare and Panda Bear performing as a duo. Back in December, the pair performed the album in its entirety for the first time at Pitchfork's 21st birthday concert. Yesterday, they revealed plans to play the beloved album around the world this summer.

The world tour begins in London on June 12, and it will work its way across Europe for the rest of June. The U.S. portion kicks off with a show inside New York City's Town Hall on July 20, and it will include stops inside Denver's Ogden Theatre on July 25 and Los Angeles' Theatre at Ace Hotel on July 31. Joining them on select dates are Laraaji and Lonnie Holley. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday (March 23) at noon local time, but the band will have pre-sale tickets available on their website tomorrow with the code "sungtongs18." UPDATE: Animal Collective has announced additional tour dates, including second shows in Los Angeles and New York. Tickets for these shows go on sale Friday, April 20; check out their updated tour schedule below.
