Washington, D.C. instrumental progressive metal trio Animals As Leaders are currently embarked on a colossal North American headlining tour in support of their third studio album, The Joy of Motion, which is set to drop on March 25th via Sumerian Records. The trek is being supported by fellow label-mates After The Burial, a solo set by multi-instrumentalist Navene Koperweis (ex-Animosity, ex-Animals As Leaders) and San Diego’s Chon.

The on-going incursion raided a packed house at New York City’s Irving Plaza last night (3/2). As usual, we snagged some pics for your viewing pleasure, sans Chon, who we unfortunately missed. Check out the gallery below, followed by all remaining tour dates.
