Animal Collective 'Feels' the Urge to Tour

Published: 2006-01-05
New York City group the Animal Collective is heading back out on the road in 2006.

Called a collective because the members of the group vary with each album, the band includes Avey Tare (Dave Portner), Panda Bear (Noah Lennox), Geologist (Brian Weitz), and Deakin (Josh Dibb). The group's roots date to Panda Bear and Deakin's meeting in the second grade.

The band's sound is difficult to describe, but is often called psych folk, though the word experimental would also fit the sound well.

Animal Collective has released about half-a-dozen albums since its first in 2000, with the most recent, Feels, released this past October and featuring all four members of the collective.
