Animal Crack Box is a live box set by American experimental music act Animal Collective. It was released in limited quantities on May 11, 2009 by Catsup Plate Records.

Background[edit]

After being discussed for years before its actual production, this vinyl-only box set finally received its promised treatment. On 18 March 2009 Catsup released the track listing and cover art.[3] A test pressing was offered on eBay to benefit Doctors Without Borders.[4] The commercial version, a single vinyl-only edition of 1000 copies, was made available for purchase on May 11, 2009 via Fusetron.

Printed by VGKids in Ypsilanti, Mi during the early months of 2009.
