Animals As Leaders New Single

Progressive instrumental metal outfit, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, has launched the brand new single, “Wave of Babies,” exclusively on Itunes. It’s available now, HERE. Tosin Abasi, the band’s main man and eight string virtuoso has filmed a mini-guitar tutorial, teaching part of the brand new track. Check it out now, exclusively at

Abasi commented on “Wave of Babies;” “This is a track I did with Misha ‘Bulb’ Mansoor (Periphery) shortly after the Animals as Leaders’ album was finished. Apparently the musical ideas weren’t exhausted during the album sessions and we still had some collaborative momentum left in us. It’s very possible that we’ll be adding this song to our live set during the Summer Slaughter tour in July so make sure to come out early to catch us!”
ANIMALS AS LEADERS will be participating in this year’s “Summer Slaughter” tour, alongside Decapitated, The Faceless and many more. This will be the second year in a row Abasi will be on the tour, as he served as touring guitarist in Born of Osiris during last year’s edition. The dates are:
