Animals As Leaders, After The Burial announce tour
Official press release: Animals As Leaders kick off the New Year with a massive headlining North American tour on Feb. 24th with After The Burial, Navene Koperweis and Chon. The first batch of dates are listed below and more will be announced in the coming weeks. Animals As Leaders debut Sumerian Records album is targeted for March release and a new track will surface online in late January. Javier Reyes states: "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." 2/24 Tampa, FL @ The Orpheum 2/25 Atlanta, GA @ Masquerade 2/26 Greensboro, NC @ Greene Street Club 2/27 Baltimore, MD @ Rams Head Live 2/28 Philadelphia, PA @ Trocadero 3/2 New York City, NY @ Irving Plaza 3/4 Montreal, QC @ La Tulipe (no Chon) 3/5 Toronto, ON @ Opera House (no Chon) 3/6 Detroit, MI @ St. Andrews 3/7 Joliet, IL @ Mojoes 3/8 Milwaukee, WI @ The Rave 3/9 Minneapolis, MN @ Skyway Theatre 3/11 St. Louis, MO @ Pop's 3/13 Houston, TX @ Fitzgerald's
