Animals As Leaders announce Euro Tour and Festival Appearances

Advertising

ANIMALS AS LEADERS return to Europe for a two-month festival run and tour with support from Canadian technical metal mavericks INTERVALS, and rising talent PLINI. This showcase of some of the world’s greatest musical talents kicks off 8 July and includes dates at Tech Fest, 2000 Trees and Rockpalast.

Boundary breaking 3-piece Animals As Leaders released their defining album “The Joy of Motion” in 2014, which further raised the bar of musical creativity and technicality to unprecedented levels. They return to the UK and Europe this summer having just completed their soon-to-be announced follow up album, out this autumn. Tosin Abasi is considered by many as one of the greatest guitarists or our time and was recently voted one of the top 7/8 string guitarists in the world by Guitar World, and his talent is matched by his phenomenal co-guitarist Javier Reyes (also of MESTIS) and drummer Matthew Garstka.
