Sumerian Records signs Animals As Leaders?

Of course this story has already been written several times during the past year, but it looks like an announcement is imminent. What announcement you ask? The one confirming that Sumerian Records has signed Animals As Leaders, of course. We say this because just hours ago Sumerian founder Ash Avildsen had the following to say: "I signed some of my best friends of 10+ years today to Sumerian Records. I love my life. Announce Thursday. You all know them." Of course nothing is official yet, but there are too many facts to ignore. Avildsen and AAL leader Tosin Abasi played together in Reflux. AAL is managed by Sumerian Entertainment. AAL live booking is handled by Avildsen and The Pantheon Agency. The new AAL album is once again being produced by Misha Mansoor of Periphery, a Sumerian band. We could go on...

I would love AAL if they had a vocalist!


RickRock 12/19/2012 9:49:16 AM

I remember seeing Reflux back in the day. They even had three singers at one point and it was a mess. Tosin ripped back then as well.

Booker management and label. Isn't that illegal?

Booker management and label. Isn't that illegal? HAHA 50 bucks says they're headlining summer slaughter, too.

Reflux is legendary! A band that had both Tosin on guitar and Evan Brewer on bass is amazing!
