The Basement Tapes Vol.1 & Spring/Summer Tour info

The new Animal Nation album - The Basement Tapes Vol.1 - will be released at the end of the month, followed by a string of shows we've dubbed "The Uncle FezTour" (previous tours include the MolesTour, and the Moles2our), but you can listen to the whole thing now in the above youtube window!

The Basement Tapes Vol.1 takes old Animal Nation favourites that have slowly evolved throughout the years to adapt to our ever-changing live set, and has them recorded properly in our basement level studio. Some songs are live-set staples that get played at every show (The Fez, Wooden Rollercoaster), some are classics that never got the proper attention they deserved when released the first time around (The Corner of Broadway), and some are banjo driven re-interpretations of previous hits (Party Animals Reprise).

We'll be taking this album on the road and we want to hang out with you and your crew. Let's party. Check the dates below, find the show closest to wherever you're at, and come join the circus.

Here are a couple live in-studio vids we made for "Wooden Roller Coaster" and "The Corner of Broadway".
