PERIPHERY And ANIMALS AS LEADERS Announce Co-Headlining ‘Convergence Tour’

Tuesday, 25 July 2017
PERIPHERY and ANIMALS AS LEADERS will team up for a North American trek, dubbed "The Convergence Tour", this fall. "This tour is a long time coming," said ANIMALS AS LEADERS guitar player Tosin Abasi. "Beyond being some of our favorite musicians, the guys in PERIPHERY are some of our favorite people! Our careers share common roots and at times, common members. We can't wait to bring this show to you all." "We are incredibly excited to hit the road with our good friends in ANIMALS AS LEADERS this fall," adds PERIPHERY guitar player Mark Holcomb. "While we've done some short runs and one-off shows with AAL over the years, the idea to do a full-scale, co-headlining tour of North America has been something both our camps have discussed for the better part of seven years. Unfortunately, we were never able to line things up. Until now. We were also able to snag two amazing bands for portions of this tour as well, CAR BOMB for the first half and ASTRONOID for the second half." "The Convergence Tour" dates: Oct. 31 - Columbus, OH @ Newport Music Hall Nov. 01 - Chicago, IL @ The Vic Theatre Nov. 03 - Grand Rapids, MI @ The Intersection Nov. 04 - Detroit, MI @ St. Andrew’s Hall Nov. 05 - London, ON @ London Music Hall Nov. 07 - Norfolk, VA @ The NorVa Nov. 09 - New York, NY @ Playstation Theater Nov. 10 - Providence, RI @ Lupo’s Nov. 11 - Philadelphia, PA @ The Electric Factory Nov. 12 - Pittsburgh, PA @ Stage AE Nov. 14 - Atlanta, GA @ The Masquerade Nov. 15 - Nashville, TN @ Marathon Music Works Nov. 17 - San Antonio, TX @ Alamo City Music Hall Nov. 18 - Dallas, TX @ Gas Monkey Live Nov. 19 - Houston, TX @ White Oak Music Hall Nov. 21 - Phoenix, AZ @ The Marquee Nov. 22 - Las Vegas, NV @ Brooklyn Bowl Nov. 24 - Los Angeles, CA @ The Wiltern Nov. 25 - San Francisco, CA @ The Regency Ballroom Nov. 27 - Portland, OR @ Crystal Ballroom Nov. 28 - Vancouver, BC @ The Commodore Ballroom Nov. 29 - Seattle, WA @ The Showbox Dec. 01 - Salt Lake City, UT @ The Complex (The Grand) Dec. 02 - Denver, CO @ Ogden Theatre CAR BOMB opens October 31 – November 15 while ASTRONOID supports November 17 to December 2. Tickets for all shows are available this Friday, July 28 at 10 a.m. local time. ANIMALS AS LEADERS released their fourth album, "The Madness Of Many", last fall via Sumerian Records. Pitchfork dubbed the ten-track album "a dense and triumphant brand of instrumental metal," while Alternative Press noted that the three-piece "continue to cut through genre restrictions." PERIPHERY, who also released their most recent album, "Periphery III: Select Difficulty", via Sumerian, discussed the album with Guitar World, saying they "returned to their mantra," which made recording far easier and faster, and led guitar player Misha Mansoor to dub it his "personal favorite."
