Three years after the release of Tomboy, the 2011 follow-up to his masterful 2007 LP Person Pitch, Animal Collective member Noah Lennox - aka Panda Bear - will be previewing his newest album during his forthcoming North American tour.

The announcement comes on the heels of the release of Enter The Slasher House, the newest solo LP from Animal Collective band-mate Avey Tare, so the timing might not be much of a coincidence. Panda Bear's first set of tour dates are set for May's Austin Psych Fest, running on the weekend of May 2nd-4th.

The tentatively titled Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper will actually be Lennox's fifth official solo LP. Back in 1998, the 20-year-old Lennox released his eponymous debut, which featured 14 tracks made during his high school days.
