Anyone psyched to see tonight’s Animal Collective show–the closing night of Lacoste’s Williamsburg Park summer concert series–is going to have to wait a little longer. Here’s the band’s official statement on the Brooklyn date’s sudden cancelation:

Hey everyone,

We really wish we didn’t have to be writing this right now, but after taking Dave to the doctor this morning it turns out that he has laryngitis and unfortunately we are unable to play the show tonight. We are already in the middle of trying to reschedule NY dates in the next couple of months to make up for this cancellation.

Due to circumstances beyond both our and the promoter’s control, we are unable to honor the tickets for tonight’s show. Fans that have tickets will be able to get full refunds at the place of purchase, and we will let everyone know as soon as we have new dates scheduled. Again, our sincere apologies to fans anticipating this show. We are always psyched to play NYC and will make it up to you.
