"Honeycomb" and "Gotham" are two songs released on a double A-side single in advance of Animal Collective's ninth studio album, Centipede Hz. It was announced via the band's official website[1] and was made available for free streaming on May 6, 2012. The physical single was put up for presale on Domino's online store, with an MP3 download being available simultaneously.[2] Neither of the songs were released on Centipede Hz.[3] The single has also been referred to as Centipede Hz's EP, or accompanying songs, as they were outtakes from the Centipede Hz recording sessions; this is supported by the fact that the 3 EPs predating Honeycomb/Gotham consisted mainly of outtake material that didn't make it on their accompanying LPs.[4]
