Dates for that motherlovin’ son-of-a-bitch follow at the end of this fucking post.
YES, it’s true. Animals As Leaders plan to release their new album through Sumerian Records in March, and to promote it, they’ll head out on tour with After The Burial, their former drummer Navene Koperweis (doing some sort of solo set) and Chon.
Says Animals As Leaders guitarist Javier Reyes of the new disc:
“We are definitely very excited about our upcoming headliner as it’s been over two years since we did our last headlining North American tour. I think we have chosen a line-up that consist of extremely talented acts. Our labelmates, After the Burial, are a band we have yet to ever share the same stage with, so we are definitely looking forward to that. Ex-AAL drummer Navene Koperweis is coming out and performing solo and Chon are a very cool band we think people will enjoy. However, we are mostly excited about finally playing new material. I think some of the new tracks are some of AAL’s strongest and musical material yet, so I am looking forward to seeing the crowd reactions. I am really happy how the album is coming out. Everyone who took part with this album (Misha Mansoor, Adam Getgood, Diego Farias, and Navene Koperweis) is extremely talented and I think we’ve done a great job of capturing it onto what is now the third Animals As Leaders album. See you all soon.”
