After upgrading to google play services 8.4.0 my app crashes on startup

I've been previously using google play services 8.3.0 without any issue. I'm looking to upgrade to google play services 8.4.0. I'm using the following play libraries:

compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-analytics:8.4.0'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:8.4.0'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm:8.4.0'


When I start the app it crashes, with the following log.

12-27 03:01:33.915 20567-20567/com.ryanc.android.stage.debug E/AndroidRuntime: FATAL EXCEPTION: main

Edit: Not sure it'll help, but at @gerardnimo request here is the full build.gradle file. Also worth noting I have tried a clean build and deleting and reinstalling play services sdks from my computer.

Answer

I was able you solve this. My coworker was able to upgrade without issues. I went to my sdk/extras folders saw mine was pretty different. So I moved my folder copied my coworkers and it worked.

I think that folder and maybe something else in the sdk folder had just gotten into an odd state, clearing the folder and redownloading may work too.
