Animal Collective Change Labels, Announce Tour

Animal Collective

Former Baltimore homeboys Animal Collective are movin' on up to a new label, Domino Records, joining Arctic Monkeys, among other mammal bands. In light of their new home, they will be launching a tour in February, including these dates (notice the too-big-for-their-breeches boys left out Baltimore):

05-14 Columbus, OH - Wexner Center
05-15 Newport, KY - Southgate House
05-16 Lexington, KY - The Dame
05-17 Chicago, IL - Metro
05-18 Iowa City, IA - Picador
05-19 Omaha, NE - Sokol
05-21 Denver, CO - Cervantes
05-22 Salt Lake City, UT - In the Venue
05-24 Albuquerque, NM - Launchpad
05-25 Marfa, TX - The Marfa Ballroom
05-26 Dallas, TX - Gypsy Tea Room
05-27 Austin, TX - Antone's
05-29 Knoxville, TN - Bijou Theatre

Thanks to Pitchfork for the scoop. And thanks to Animal Collective's agency, Windish Agency, for screaming at me for posting old dates. That Google alert must move fast. Why don't you pass along the word that they should stop back in Baltimore sometime?
