Animal Collective released their last album, Centipede Hz, back in 2012. It looks as though fans won’t have to wait much longer for a new full-length, though. According to an Instagram post from Los Angeles-based EastWest Studios, the band has finished recording its 10th LP.
“Today Animal Collective finished recording their new album in Studio 3. ☺️ we are so proud of them and this Album, can’t wait to hear it!!! Cheers!” the image’s caption reads, along with the hashtag #epic. Lexi Galante, a singer/actress/producer is also pictured hanging with Panda Bear and the boys at EastWest, a studio used by the likes of Frank Ocean, PJ Harvey, and The Decemberists.
In addition to EastWest, it appears Animal Collective have also been logging time at Drop of Sun Studios in Asheville, North Carolina. A few pictures from the studio’s Instagram account note that the band were writing and rehearsing in the space a few weeks ago.
Since Centipede Hz, Animal Collective’s various members have kept busy. Avey Tare and Geologist most recently put out their Psycho Actives Vol. 1 EP. Meanwhile, Panda Bear dropped his Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper album in January.
