Post Animal Shares New Single Off Upcoming Album “Cancer Moon”

Beloved Chicago quintet Post Animal will release their incredible self-produced new album and kick off a massive U.S. tour next month, and today they share one final track before the album is out. Following “Puppy Dog” and “No More Sports” is new track “Cancer Moon”, which finds the band channeling classic rock grandiosity with a hypermodern dream pop wash, showcasing once again their ability to seamlessly blend a variety of sounds into a cohesive whole. “Cancer Moon is our affectionate ode to the people, places, and things that are home. In the most difficult moments, continuing down the uncertain path of life can feel hopeless and lonely,” Jake Hirshland explains, “This song is about returning to the things you love and trust the most to help you move forward.”

Written, recorded, and produced entirely by the band, Love Gibberish (out May 13th) marks their first independent release after two critically acclaimed albums with Polyvinyl. Members Dalton Allison, Jake Hirshland, Javier Reyes, Wesley Toledo, and Matthew Williams convened at Hirshland’s family farm, unpacking months of demos and grounding themselves in the same place where they first named the band. “This album takes us back to how it felt before we ever thought we’d be an actual touring band, with no expectations for ourselves,” Williams says. “Now, we’re inside the gibberish-ness of life, trying to figure out what we need to survive.”
