Sung Tongs was the fourth studio album from American band Animal Collective, and was released on May 3, 2004 by FatCat Records. Fourteen years later Animal Collective are back to perform the critically lauded album live in its entirety with tour dates throughout Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States. The band has only performed the album in full one other time, in December 2017 at Pitchfork’s 21st birthday party in Queens, NY.
Sung Tongs generated much praise from critics upon its release and was featured in best-of lists at the end of 2004 and the decade of the 2000s. Some might consider it the band’s breakthrough record, even though they had recorded much material prior.
Two of the band’s four members will be on tour, just as the album was recorded: Avey Tare (David Portner) and Panda Bear (Noah Lennox).
Sung Tongs was recently re-released on vinyl through My Animal Home and is available here.
Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, March 23rd at 10 am local time. Password sungtongs18 will unlock band presale on Tuesday, March 20th at 12pm local time. All show information is at www.myanimalhome.net.
