Baltimore, Maryland, United States (1999 – present)

Animal Collective is a musical group which formed in Baltimore, Maryland, United States in 1999. The band consists of Panda Bear (Noah Lennox), Avey Tare (David Portner), Deakin (Josh Dibb) and Geologist (Brian Weitz). Records released under the name Animal Collective may include contributions from any or all of these members; the lineup is not uniform.

The band has released nine albums: “Spirit They’re Gone, Spirit They’ve Vanished” (2000), “Danse Manatee” (2001), “Campfire Songs” (2003), “Here Comes the Indian” (2003), “Sung Tongs” (2004), “Feels” (2005), “Strawberry Jam” (2007), “Merriweather Post Pavilion” (2009) and “Centipede Hz” (2012). Prior to “Here Comes the Indian”, the group’s albums were not credited to the band name “Animal Collective” but instead to “Avey Tare & Panda Bear” (for “Spirit”), “Avey Tare, Panda Bear & Geologist” (for “Danse”) and “Campfire Songs” (for “Campfire Songs”).

The band members met in school and started recording together in various forms of collaboration from a young age. Although the band is often classified as psych folk or noise rock, it is hard to define the Animal Collective sound as they often experiment with diverse styles and ideas from album to album.

    I miss all of the qt scene girls...but luckily a lot of them transitioned to "hipster" girls, so it's not all bad

    RIP Cambo [2] I can attest everything Euphoric Hat said. Shit got real in the skrillex shoutbox after the mods started enclosing on it. I don't want to say anymore because I already know the feds are watching

    Ours has been sustained and lasting. There are still people who are being banned for the sins committed in the Skrillbox (RIP Cambo). We have had entire offshoot groups get shut down, even after we left.

    But is there a skrillex equivalent to the entire group dedicated to the Great Shoutbox Purge? lol

    nah, nah, nah. Skrillbox had moonie and trash and several of us had been banned several times. THOSE were the days.

    Skrillex: "20,000 shouts aren't going to shout themselves." How quaint.
