Post Animal Stopping in Putnam Place March 13
Chicago’s Post Animal will release their sophomore album Forward Motion Godyssey next week on Polyvinyl, and following a UK/EU tour supporting Cage The Elephant, they will be embarking on a headlining US tour and making a stop in Saratoga Springs at Putnam Place on Friday, March 13th.
Post Animal released their self-written, performed and produced debut album When I Think Of You In A Castle last year via Polyvinyl, and will release Forward Motion Godyssey on February 14th. Written in eight days in the majestic Big Sky, Montana and co-produced by the band’s Dalton Allison and collaborator Adam Thein, Forward Motion Godyssey finds the band endlessly shapeshifting as they explore new sonic touchstones and expand on their psych-rock origins.
“Making this record, we wanted to go extreme in a lot of different directions—we wanted to be as poppy as we’ve ever been, as over-the-top as we’ve ever been, as grandiose and heavy and dramatic as we’ve ever been,” says drummer Wesley Toledo.
Now a five-piece (co-founder Joe Keery has since taken a key role on Stranger Things and left the lineup, though he continues to collaborate with his former bandmates in various side projects as time permits), Post Animal is deeply rooted in brotherhood, dating back to a near-lifelong friendship between Allison and Matt Williams. The band’s profound closeness is evident across the entire record, from their undeniable musical chemistry and their most emotionally revealing lyrics yet, making this a gracefully complex and cohesive record which rewards with every listen. Early tracks have already received support from the likes of The FADER, NPR Music, Billboard, and many more.
