Progressive metal juggernauts Animals As Leaders are celebrating ten years with a new tour, and they’re bringing The Contortionist along for the ride! Animals As Leaders are practically a household name in the progressive scene, and seeing them still active and putting out astounding music after all this time is a pleasure to see. With The Contortionist tagging along as well, this will be one of the first can’t-miss tours of 2019. Having four albums worth of material to bring to this tour means we could be hearing some songs never played live before and many favorites. There is also (maybe? please?) a chance at hearing some new material, but you’ll have to be there to find that out!
