ANIMALS AS LEADERS Streaming New Track “Arithmophobia”

L.A.-based trio Animals As Leaders return with their fourth album, The Madness Of Many, on November 11th via Sumerian Records. Listen to the album’s lead track, “Arithmophobia”, streaming below.

"This album feels like total synergy between the three of us,” says guitar player Tosin Abasi. “None of this music would have turned out the same way without the equal inclusion of all of our musical ideas and that feel special. We're beyond thrilled with the result."

Animals As Leaders produced the 10-track album, with guitar player Javier Reyes handling mixing duties. Reyes also commented on the symbiotic nature of the new album, adding, “The Madness Of Many is an explorative and ambitious journey of harmony, rhythm, musical expression and emotion. It has been the most collaborative effort for the band and an evolution in each of the members’ musical path.” Drummer Matt Garstka noted that, “although conceptually dense, it is the most natural sounding Animals As Leaders album yet.”

The Madness Of Many tracklisting:

“Cognitive Contortions”
“Inner Assassins”
