Animal Collective to release live albums for Progress North Carolina Action

The releases document the band’s recent shows at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles and The Ritz in Manchester.
Animal Collective have released two new live albums in aid of Progress North Carolina Action, and to raise awareness of LGBTQ issues – specifically a new law passed in the state. The news follows their show at The Orange Peel in Asheville.



“Recently, North Carolina passed a law, known as HB2, that dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use and attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace,” they explain.



“We felt that canceling our show, like many others have done in protest of this law, would be a disappointment to our fans and decided to go on with the performance. That being said, we don’t condone or agree with any type of bigotry or discrimination.”



The releases document the band’s recent shows at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles and The Ritz in Manchester, and are available now as “pay what you want” downloads with all proceeds going to that organisation. [sc name=”stopper” ]
