[Watch] Animal Collective debuts nine new songs live in California

Last night, psychadelic band Animal Collective kicked off their five day California tour, which will build up to their appearance at this years Coachella Festival, at the Phoenix Theatre in Petaluma, California. Not only are the boys playing the shows in order to build up to Coachella, but they're also using them to showcase some new music. According to the band's message boards, they played nine new songs at the show last night, several of which you can watch after the jump, courtesy of YouTube user erasmustyc. As of yet, there has been no word of whether or not any of this new material is hinting at the follow-up to 2009's Merriweather Post Pavilion, but we'll all just have to wait and see.
