Animals As Leaders Return In February Next Year

In support of their upcoming fourth album, The Madness of Many, instrumental heavy rockers, Animals As Leaders, will be hitting the road next February and March 2017. The band will be tearing up stages in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Currently in the midst of their European dates before trekking through North America, Animals As Leaders are set to release their fourth album, The Madness of Many, on November 11.

After the uniquely virtuosic Washington, D.C.-based metalcore band Reflux disbanded, one of it's former members—seven and eight-string guitar hero—Tosin Abasi was asked to record a solo album by the group's then record label, Prosthetic Records. That solo project forged Animal As Leaders.

The self-titled debut album dropped in April 2009 and saw Abasi handling all guitar and bass tracks, while drums and other synthesized sound effects were engineered by Misha Mansoor.

Abasi and company followed up in 2011, when Animals as Leaders released their sophomore album, Weightless. They then released their third album, The Joy of Motion, in 2014, after signing on with Sumerian Records.

Guests at all shows are 23-year-old guitarist and composer from Sydney, Plini and Nick Johnston, who is hailed as a “modern guitar virtuoso” Canadian guitarist.
