Animal Kingdom was one of those bands that totally caught us off guard but in the best possible way on our first listen. You may remember a few months back when we loved on their video for their single, "Strange Attractor" so much that we included them on our April Mixtape. Since then we have added their new album, The Looking Away to our summer rotation and have yet to regret that decision.
We are happy to report that the band has ventured to the US of A for a string of dates, which kicks off tonight in Philadelphia, PA and runs through mid-August. Even better: if you happen to be living in the greater NYC area we have a pair of tickets to give away to tomorrow night's (7/25) show at Mercury Lounge.
Want to come dance along side us tomorrow night at Merc? Leave us a comment before 11:30am EDT tomorrow (7/25) telling us something that you're strangely attracted to. A winner will be chosen at random and notified shortly afterwards. Show is 21+ so make sure you're old enough before you enter.
Don't live in NYC? Make sure you catch these guys [hopefully] in a neighborhood near you. They'll also be making appearances at Lollapalooza and Outside Lands so make sure you keep an eye out for them if you're headed that way as well.
