Periphery & Animals As Leaders going on co-headlining tour (playing NYC)

Periphery live at Revolution earlier this year…

Prog metal favorites Periphery and Animals As Leaders will be teaming up for a massive fall North American co-headlining trek titled ‘The Convergence Tour.’

The 24-city rampage will feature support from Car Bomb (from Oct. 31 – Nov. 15 ) and Astronoid (from Nov. 17 – Dec. 2). New York’s only gig on the trek happens at New York City’s PlayStation Theater on Nov. 9 [TIX go on sale 7/28].

Speaking of the run, Animals As Leaders guitarist Tosin Abasi states:

This tour is a long time coming. 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.

Periphery guitar ripper Mark Holcomb adds:

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.

Periphery and Animals As Leaders are touring in support of their latest full-lengths, Periphery III: Select Difficulty and The Madness of Many, respectively.
