We welcome our new arthropod overlords. Animal Collective has announced they will be releasing a new album titled Centipede Hz on September 4 via Domino. The follow-up to 2009's Merriweather Post Pavilion will consist of 11 tracks, but it won't include the "Honeycomb"/"Gotham" 7" single the band unveiled earlier this month.

In conjunction with the announcement, the Baltimore-born art-pop experimenters posted a brief teaser video. With sci-fi bleeps, Tron-style graphics, and robotic voices reading the track listing, it's at once quintessentially AnCo and something like a transmission from the centipede galaxy; "From us to you on Centipide Hz," reads blocky text at the bottom of the screen. Check out the video and the track list below.

Centipede Hz Track List:

  1. "Moonjock"
  2. "Today's Supernatural"
  3. "Rosie Oh"
  4. "Applesauce"
  5. "Wide Eyed"
  6. "Father Time"
  7. "New Town Burnout"
  8. "Monkey Riches"
  9. "Mercury Man"
  10. "Pulleys"
  11. "Amanita"
