ANIMALS AS LEADERS was initially the moniker under which virtuoso guitarist Tosin Abasi chose to release his groundbreaking 2009 solo debut, but it quickly became a full-fledged band that wowed crowds on tour with the likes of Circa Survive, Underoath, The Dillinger Escape Plan and many more. Their video for “CAFO” has been viewed on YouTube well over one million times. Steve Vai has called ANIMALS AS LEADERS “the future of creative, heavy, virtuoso guitar,” while MetalSucks recently ranked Abasi #2 on their list of the Top 25 Modern Metal guitarists.
