Since the members of San Diego-based outfit Extreme Animals are affiliates of technicolor art collective Paper Rad, it makes sense their MySpace page is literally painful to look at because of the neon color scheme. We sucked it up and damaged our sight for a few minutes anyway, to find dates for the group’s current tour. They’ll be playing songs off the recently released Vicious Pop album, Let the Music Take You There, which is mash-up of samples, programmed beat mayhem, and lots of weird zapping noises. It also marks the group’s first properly pressed album after six years of self-releasing their work. Should make for fun, energetic live shows, but let’s hope the visuals aren’t quite as bright as the ones on the MySpace page.
