In a matter of days, three of the four members of the beloved Animal Collective will be setting out on a short string of U.S. tour dates.

Avey Tare and Deakin will begin next week at the Grand Central in Miami, with Geologist joining the two for several of the later dates. It is worth noting, however, that Panda Bear will not be joining his fellow band members on the tour. Whether that has something to do with his future solo release Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is uncertain.

The trio also released a live DJ cut from its late May set in Los Angeles, available courtesy of Mixcloud.
