Art-pop musician and Animal Collective member Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, is working on a new album. Tentatively titled Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, Lennox’s follow-up to 2011’s Tomboy is slated for release later this year via Domino Records. It’s being produced by Sonic Boom, who produced Panda Bear’s last album as well.
Lennox hasn’t exactly been laying low for the last few years, however. He’s been touring with Animal Collective behind their 2012 album Centipede Hz, and had a guest appearance on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. And while we don’t have too much information about Panda Bear’s upcoming new album, he has announced a few tour dates for 2014, which you can check out below.
Panda Bear tour:
3/23 Nantes, France – Le Lieu Unique
5/2-4 Austin, TX – Austin Psych Fest
5/23-25 George, WA – Sasquatch! Music Festival
5/31 – 6/1 Nagano, Japan – TAICOCLUB
