Animals As Leaders to Release their New Album “The Joy of Motion”

Alright, alright, alright, alright. We figured we should sound like André 3000 when we tell you the new album from Animals As Leaders has officially been given a release date. The new record is called The Joy of Motion and it’s coming out in March.

Earlier this week we got our first taste of new AAL when a track supposedly titled “Lippincott” leaked online. It got taken down in a mere few hours, and all we were left with were live videos of the band playing the song in Australia.

Anyway, The Joy of Motion will be released on March 25th. The band will kick off a lengthy tour later this month with After The Burial, Navene-K, and CHON. While we wait for a new track to be released, here’s a teaser to hold you over.
