Animals As Leaders have announced they’ll be hitting the road throughout March and April this year in support of their upcoming album, Parrhesia.

The Parrhesia US tour will notably feature two sets per night: one comprising tracks from the band’s pre-existing repertoire, and another that will see the prog-metal heavyweights perform their forthcoming studio effort in full.

Kicking off at Denver’s Summit Music Hall on March 30, Animals As Leaders will visit 19 cities while on the Live Nation-produced tour, and will conclude their trip round the country on April 22 at LA’s Theater At The Ace Hotel.

In between these shows, they will play two runs of six consecutive nights throughout April, visiting cities such as Kansas, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Atlanta.

Tickets for the tour will go on general sale on January 21 at 10am from Animals As Leaders’ official website.

Headed up by electric guitar titans Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes, Animals As Leaders will release Parrhesia – their first new material in more than half a decade since 2016’s The Madness Of Many – on March 25 via Sumerian Records.

They’ve prefaced the release of Parrhesia so far by sharing two singles, The Problem Of Many and Monomyth, the latter of which was subsequently the subject of a scorching playthrough from Abasi.
