ANIMALS AS LEADERS ANNOUNCE UPCOMING INTERNATIONAL TOUR DATESThursday, August 23rd, 2012
Groundbreaking progressive instrumentalist act ANIMALS AS LEADERS will support the progressive metal act Between the Buried and Me — with whom they have previously toured in both America and Europe — on their upcoming international tour. Beginning Nov. 13, the bands will play throughout each major city in Australia and will commence in New Zealand. Before heading to Australia, the band will also headline the Rock Party Festival in Long Beach, Calif. on Sept. 29. Full dates can be found below.
ANIMALS AS LEADERS guitarist Tosin Abasi was recently seen featured on the cover of Guitar World alongside the legendary guitar hero Steve Vai, who has called the band “the future of heavy creative virtuoso guitar.” Their latest critically acclaimed release, “Weightless,” reached #92 on the Billboard Top 200 and was praised by Alternative Press for its “intricate picking, lurching chords, and searing melodic leads.”
You can get a repressing of ”Weightless” on vinyl (available in limited amounts on white, grey marble, and 180-gram black wax) for a limited time through the Prosthetic web store HERE. The black variant is also available at select retail outlets around the world.
