ANIMAL COLLECTIVE SIGNS WITH DOMINO RECORDS





It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Animal Collective & that I'm eagerly awaiting their new album. I figured it would be coming out on Fat Cat, and I was surprised to find out today that they signed with Domino Records. Here's the official statement from Domino:

"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. Watch this space..."

Domino is the label for Adem, Arctic Monkeys, Bonnie Prince Billy, Clinic, Four Tet, Franz Ferdinand, Juana Molina, Steven Malkmus, Jim O'Rourke and many other great artists, so the AC is in good company.
