Chicago’s Post Animal will release their remarkable sophomore album Forward Motion Godyssey next month on Polyvinyl, and today they share another single off the forthcoming record. Following the previously released Safe Or Not” and Schedule,” which have already received support from the likes of  The FADER and NPR Music, “Fitness” is about persistence in the face of loss.

Post Animal are already slated to open for Cage The Elephant in the UK/EU starting in just a few weeks, and today the band also announces a long North American tour. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 10th. See below to find a show near you, and get your tickets HERE.

Post Animal released their critically acclaimed 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. Pre-order Forward Motion Godyssey HERE and HERE.
