Trio speak to NME.COM after their sold-out show
Animal Collective continued their small tour of the UK last night (January 14) with a show in Manchester.
Playing at the city’s Club Academy, the Baltimore group’s set consisted mainly of tracks from their newly-released ninth studio album ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’.
Panda Bear, Avery Tare and Geologist (who sported his trademark head lamp) barely stopped to breathe in between songs during their 90-minute set.
Including a full light show in the small, sold-out venue, the band revealed that they expect to ram up their visual intensity at future gigs.
“We definitely want more intensive visual live shows, I mean we have some lights and stuff but we want to take that to the next level,” Geologist told NME.COM after the show.

‘Lion In A Coma’
