Currently consisting of guitarists Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes and drummer Matt Garstka, Animals as Leaders were formed by Abasi in 2007 after playing a few years in the ‘straight’ music world as a member of the uniquely virtuosic metalcore band Reflux.

Abasi founded a new entity named Animals as Leaders, a solo project with him handling all guitar and bass tracks, while drums and other synthesized sound effects were programmed by engineer Misha Mansoor.

Since then the gang has grown alongside the output, with 4 studio albums to date, with the latest ‘The Madness of Many’ hitting number 1 on the US Hard Rock album charts.
