ANIMALS AS LEADERS: New Video Interview, Quality Performance Footage Available

On September 12, Michael of Freethinkers’ Blog conducted an interview with Tosin Abasi of progressive instrumentalists ANIMALS AS LEADERS in Vienna, Austria. You can now watch the chat in two parts below. Also available is footage of the band performing a new song, “Isolated Incidents”, during the Vienna concert.

“Isolated Incidents” comes off ANIMALS AS LEADERS‘ second full-length album, “Weightless”, which will be released in North America on November 8, in mainland Europe on November 4 and in the U.K. on November 7 via Prosthetic Records.
