Animal Collective has announced they've had to cancel their forthcoming July tour dates due to illness.

The statement reads as follows:

"Due to illness, we will unfortunately not be able to perform our upcoming July tour dates, including the Camp Bisco and Forecastle festivals. We deeply apologize and tried our best to make it work with an alternate set, but ultimately we didn't feel like we were giving fans what they deserved from an Animal Collective show. We are working on rescheduling the non-festival dates as soon as possible. Again we send our sincerest apologies to fans anticipating these shows, especially considering the cancellations earlier this year." - Avey Tare, Deakin, Geoligist, and Panda Bear
