American experimental pop group Animal Collective was founded in Baltimore, Maryland. Avey Tare (David Portner), Panda Bear (Noah Lennox), Geologist (Brian Weitz), and Deakin are its members (Josh Dibb). The band's music is distinguished by a diverse study of genres like psychedelia, freak folk, noise, and electronica, as well as sophisticated production techniques and instruments like loops, drones, sampling, vocal harmonies, and sound collage.

The band "shaped the face of independent experimental music over the 2000s and 2010s," according to Fred Thomas of AllMusicAn air of secrecy and a fervent fan base have been developed over the past few years by the experimental pop band Animal Collective. The trio's music is hard to classify because it incorporates drones, loops, sound collages, and strange vocal harmonies.

Although the animal collective band's recent shows have been canceled! Which is a huge heartbreak for the fans.

1. With "Inflation, Currency Devaluation, Ballooning Shipping, And Transportation

costs," Animal Collective has cancelled its upcoming UK and European tour.

Before continuing to Europe, the US band was scheduled to begin their tour on November 2 in Ireland, stopping in Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow, and London.

The group released a lengthy statement last night (October 10) stating that they are "choosing not to accept the danger to our mental and physical health with the economic reality of what that tour would have entailed."

Even if everything went perfectly, "we simply could not create a budget for this tour that did not lose money," the statement said.

"Until our health forbade it, we have always been the type of people to push through the tough moments and perform on stage... We sincerely hope you understand that we will not make such a decision carelessly.

2. Fans Have Expressed Dissatisfaction with The Band's Facebook Page Decision.

If you're wondering what all the fuss is about, here's a quick rundown of the arguments:

  • Other fans aren't happy because they feel like Animal Collective didn't consider this before signing with Domino Records, especially since many other bands were also using streaming platforms like Spotify rather than selling albums online or in stores. Things might change once we get past whatever happens next week!

3. We Chose Not to Risk Our Mental and Physical Health

The exchange rate between the pound and the dollar, which reached a record low last month but has since recovered 10%, is one of the main issues that worries him and the rest of the team, he said. We were virtually on parity, something we hadn't experienced in a long time. It also profoundly influences artists who tour here because doing so is becoming much more expensive. It will be interesting to see how this affects things in the future.

After a slew of tour cancellations, including those by Santigold, Arlo Parks, Shawn Mendes, Sam Fender, Russ, Wet Leg, Disclosure, Placebo, alt-J, Pale Waves, and Anthrax, many of which cited logistical and mental health issues as the cause, Animal Collective made a statement. The band said, "We hope you understand and that you know we would not make a choice like this carelessly." We genuinely want nothing more than to return there. We sincerely appreciate the hard work of our crew, the promoters, and the venues for this tour. We hope you will join us when we return to the field to play for you all shortly.

4. The New Dates Are Yet to Be Confirmed 

The band has confirmed that ticket holders who purchased tickets for the rescheduled dates will receive a full refund. All other ticket holders should hold onto their tickets until further notice, as we ask that you respect our privacy by not asking for contact details about your ticket sale.

We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. We hope all fans will understand why we had to make this change at such an important time in Animal Collective's history!

To Sum It Up

It's sad for all the Animal Collective band fans as the show were cancelled. We hope you'll all be able to catch the band on their rescheduled dates in the future. Also, we hope you're excited for the new record and its release this spring! You can read more about it here. And we'll see you on tour soon, hopefully.
