As stated earlier, Animals As Leaders recently announced they will be releasing a new record this year titled “The Madness Of Many”. Following the highly praised release of their previous album, “The Joy of Motion”, AAL look to continue this success through their inspirational songwriting and also look to capitalize on the drastic increase in interest in instrumental rock/metal.
The first single off their fourth studio album is “The Brain Dance” and it is actually a very relaxing, melodic track showcasing a surprising twist on their patented sound. Varying from their slightly more upbeat tracks, “The Brain Dance” features beautiful mixing between bass, guitar, and drums while also demonstrating the numerous genre influences that helped form this track like indie rock, progressive metal, and even some sections that feature a slight but noticeable resemblance to the instrumentals heard in flamenco. Of course, the complex bass solos can still be heard on this song that are a staple for the AAL sound.
“The Brain Dance” is a very therapeutic and refreshing song to listen to and suggests that “The Madness Of Many” will continue their reign of instrumental rock/metal legends with yet another groundbreaking release. I also want to give a quick shoutout to Sumerian Records who will be releasing two phenomenal albums at the end of this year, Thomas Giles’s “Velcro_Kid” and Animals As Leaders’ “The Madness Of Many”. Both of these records, based on the first single alone, sound absolutely stellar and I personally cannot wait for them to be released. The single “The Brain Dance” is posted below for those who want to hear the latest material from Animals As Leaders!
