By: Spacelab Research Staff Animal Collective have signed to Domino Records in what looks like a long term commitment to the band. The band is currently recording its follow up to Feels, an album that brough the band a lot of attention worldwide after its release in 2005.
Domino Records said "We here at Domino are hugely excited to have signed a long term worldwide recording agreement with Animal Collective, one of of the most unique and visionary and extraordinary groups in America, and indeed the known universe. Animal Collective have decamped to a desert state to record their next album and we 're hoping to release the results later on in the summertime."
FatCat Records will be releasing a new Animal CollectivePeople EP on January 23rd, featuring tracks from the Feels recording sessions in Seattle from 2005. It features 3 studio tracks and one live recording. Band member Noah Lennox will also release a full length album titled Person Pitch on March 20th under his Panda Bear alias.
