"There was just so much touring for us," Panda Bear (aka Noah Lennox) told BBC 6 Music. "We're not really road dogs. We were really happy with the record, so we wanted to put in a little extra this time. But it took its toll in terms of us just being exhausted. So I think all of us are trying to lay low just for a second."
Although it's common for bands to take breaks between tours, Panda Bear isn't too sure about the future of the Baltimore-based band. "There have been times in the past when I've thought we were done," he said. "So I don't know, this could be it. I don't expect it to be, I should say, but you never know."
Meanwhile the Animal Collective vocalist is currently playing a few solo shows and working on material for his fourth solo record, 'Tomboy,' scheduled to release in September. Despite Panda Bear's uncertainty about when the band will get back into the studio or performing again, he's determined to get his own music out there before working with Animal Collective again.
"My focus right now is just to do this record and make sure I do my best with that, and then when that's winding down, I feel like I'll move my focus back to the group," he said. "We've already talked about it in very loose, vague terms. But no dates have been set in terms of us getting together to work on stuff."
