ANIMALS AS LEADERS, the L.A.-based trio, return with their fourth album, The Madness Of Many, on Nov. 11 via Sumerian Records.

"This album feels like total synergy between the three of us,” says guitar player Tosin Abasi. “None of this music would have turned out the same way without the equal inclusion of all of our musical ideas and that feel special. We're beyond thrilled with the result."

ANIMALS AS LEADERS produced the 10-track album, with guitar player Javier Reyes handling mixing duties. Reyes also commented on the symbiotic nature of the new album, adding, "The Madness Of Many is an explorative and ambitious journey of harmony, rhythm, musical expression and emotion. It has been the most collaborative effort for the band and an evolution in each of the members’ musical path.” Drummer Matt Garstka noted that, “although conceptually dense, it is the most natural sounding ANIMALS AS LEADERS album yet.”

The Madness Of Many track list:

  • "Arithmophobia"
  • "Ectogenesis"
  • "Cognitive Contortions"
  • "Inner Assassins"
  • "Private Visions of the World"
  • "Backpfeifengesicht"
  • "Transcentience"
  • "The Glass Bridge"
  • "The Brain Dance"
  • "Aepirophobia"
The trio kick off their first tour in support of the new album on Nov. 10, launching a five-week, North American outing at the Livewire in Scottsdale, Ariz. INTERVALS and PLINI will open on all dates.

Since ANIMALS AS LEADERS’ self-titled debut, the band has become one of the most talked about and revered heavy prog outfits with each band member gracing the covers of guitar and drum magazines worldwide. In the intervening years, and with two more albums (Weightless and The Joy Of Motion), they have cemented themselves as not just an unparalleled trio of technical prowess but also as sought after individual players with Abasi joining guitar heroes Joe Satriani at the G4 Experience, as well as Nuno Bettencourt and Steve Vai on the Generation Axe tour, Garstka performing at international drum clinics and festivals while Reyes moonlights with MESTIS, his solo project which released the full-length album Polysemy last year.
