Things have been pretty silent on the Animals As Leaders front lately. The band finished up their run on the most recent Summer Slaughter Tour and then nothing. Or maybe they were taking that time to finish up some new material, because we're getting a new record in 2014! Hell yes!
According to a post by Periphery bassist and producer Adam Getgood, the band are recording with him at the West Hollywood, CA, recording studio Swing House Recording. The post was captioned:
"Matthew Garstka is killing the Animals As Leaders drum sessions. Hardest hitter I've recorded for sure!"
If you've seen the video of Garstka destroying the kit on Summer Slaughter we posted a little while back you'll know what he's talking about. Dude is insane and hits the kit like it owes him money! There are no further details currently on either the record or is guitarists Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes have broken the sound barrier with shred for the album just yet.
