Animals As Leaders, Periphery announce co-headlining tour

Periphery and Animals As Leaders tour 2017 Periphery and Animals As Leaders will tour North America together this fall via a trek dubbed "The Convergence." Support on select dates will be provided by Car Bomb and Astronoid. "This tour is a long time coming," says Animals As Leaders' guitar player Tosin Abasi. "Beyond being some of our favorite musicians, the guys in Periphery are some of our favorite people! Our careers share common roots and at times, common members. We can't wait to bring this show to you all." "We are incredibly excited to hit the road with our good friends in Animals as Leaders this fall," adds Periphery guitar player Mark Holcomb. "While we've done some short runs and one-off shows with AAL over the years, the idea to do a full-scale, co-headlining tour of North America has been something both our camps have discussed for the better part of seven years. Unfortunately, we were never able to line things up. Until now. We were also able to snag two amazing bands for portions of this tour as well, Car Bomb for the first half and Astronoid for the second half." dates w/ Car Bomb 10/31 Columbus, OH @ Newport Music Hall 11/1 Chicago, IL @ The Vic Theatre 11/3 Grand Rapids, MI @ The Intersection 11/4 Detroit, MI @ St. Andrew's Hall 11/5 London, ON @ London Music Hall 11/7 Norfolk, VA T@ he NorVa 11/9 New York, NY @ Playstation Theater 11/10 Providence, RI @ Lupo's 11/11 Philadelphia, PA @ The Electric Factory 11/12 Pittsburgh, PA @ Stage AE 11/14 Atlanta, GA @ The Masquerade 11/15 Nashville, TN @ Marathon Music Works dates w/ Astronoid 11/17 San Antonio, TX @ Alamo City Music Hall 11/18 Dallas, TX @ Gas Monkey Live 11/19 Houston, TX @ White Oak Music Hall 11/21 Phoenix, AZ @ The Marquee 11/22 Las Vegas, NV @ Brooklyn Bowl 11/24 Los Angeles, CA @ The Wiltern 11/25 San Francisco, CA @ The Regency Ballroom 11/27 Portland, OR @ Crystal Ballroom 11/28 Vancouver, BC @ The Commodore Ballroom 11/29 Seattle, WA @ The Showbox 12/1 Salt Lake City, UT @ The Complex (The Grand) 12/2 Denver, CO @ Ogden Theatre

They call this tour "the Convergence", use imagery that's extremely similar to Converge's logo, and announce at the same time as Converge puts out two new songs. Coincidence, or f.uck your dad in a bag of rice?

opening bands that will contribute nothing to the ticket sales... this tour could have been stacked with better openers that people have actually heard of.
