Avey Tare of Animal Collective fame has announced he's teaming up with Angel Deradoorian (ex-Dirty Projectors) and Jeremy Hyman (ex-Ponytail) on his new project, Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks.

Apparently they're "a group of three hippies on a road trip through the backwaters of 2013s rural music scene fall prey to a murderous cannibalistic band making, including a leather-masked, guitar-wielding Avey Tare, his knife-wielding keyboard player Angel Deradoorian, and their cannibal chief drummer and decaying grandfather Jeremy Hyman," says Tare.

Intrigued? They're set to play the following dates this June:

  • 06-18 Brooklyn, NY - Glasslands Gallery
  • 06-20 Brighton, England - Green Door Store
  • 06-21 London, England - The Lexington
  • 06-22 Camber Sands, England - All Tomorrow's Parties Festival
