Toro Y Moi is touring in support of their third full-length release Anything in Return, out now on Carpark Records; for a list of tour dates please see below. Written and recorded in the wake of a cross-country move from Bundick's longtime home in South Carolina to Berkeley, CA, Anything in Return continues to garner critical praise.
Having spent his formative years playing in punk rock bands and studying graphic design at the University of South Carolina, Bundick began making bedroom recordings under the name Toro Y Moi in 2001. Those early recordings made up the seeds of his critically acclaimed 2010 debut album Causers of This, which was hailed as "a bold introduction to a promising newcomer" by Filter. Bundick went on to record 2011's highly regarded Underneath the Pine and the Freaking Out EP before making his move to California in 2012.
