Forgive my girlish squeal but eeeeeeek! Periphery and Animals As Leaders have just announced an Australian tour for this January/February, hitting three cities (Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne). Now, if you caught Periphery during their last Australian tour – when they were here for Soundwave – you’d know that these guys are pretty much un-freaking-stoppable as a live unit at the moment. And Animals As Leaders were here this time last year (has it already been that long? Whoa) with Between The Buried & Me. But this is a killer chance to catch them both together here in the Antipodes. Here’s the press release:
Periphery + Animals As Leaders
Periphery has defied the boundaries of conventionality, bringing new life to the metal scene. Their meteoric rise to the upper echelon of the metal world will be in full display when they return to Australia in January/February 2014 joined by Animals As Leaders.
Periphery push the envelope with an innovative brand of engagingly complex metal. The band’s latest offering, Periphery II showcases the band’s richest and most alluring metal to date.
‘‘Periphery is clearly onto something huge.’ – Metal Injection
Animals as Leaders bring their instrumental progressive metal grooves and were hailed ‘the future of creative, heavy virtuoso guitar playing’ by Steve Vai himself.
Periphery and Animals As Leaders will join forces for the djent tour of the year.
