ENTER TO WIN FREE TIX to see Animals As Leaders at Crystal Ballroom on November 1!
Armed with palette-expanding eight-string guitars, rich synths, and pummeling percussive grooves, the trio is beloved by metalheads, aspiring virtuosos, jazz fanatics, and casual listeners alike. As Pitchfork observed, "Animals As Leaders have walked the tightrope between sheer technical virtuosity and actual emotional resonance." Even without vocals, this is intimate, mythmaking music.
