ANIMALS AS LEADERS ARE FILMING A LIVE DVD
Soon enough you won’t need to watch crappy, fan-filmed sideways footage of the new Animals as Leaders song because you’ll be able to watch awesome, right-side-up, pro-shot footage of it: the band is filming a live DVD on their current tour with Intronaut, Dead Letter Circus, Last Chance to Reason and Evan Brewer. Here’s MS reader Mason K. with a personal account of how he found out about the DVD at this past Saturday’s tour stop:
But the reason for this e-mail (besides to remind all that they should go if they still have a chance), is to reveal (if you have not heard already) that AAL was filming for a Live DVD at the show, and was verified by “God-sent” Abasi.
The camera-man (as there was only one), moved about the stage with fluidity, leading me to believe the video would be more personal than those of other bands. Because it would seem to those watching as if they were walking around the band, and not fixed in place. When talking to him later on, he indicated they were filming at a bunch of locations (Meshuggah-style?), so people should really go to the shows to possibly become a part of AAL-history.
And that’s pretty much exactly what my own eyes confirmed at last night’s [obviously awesome] show in Farmingdale, NY. Again there was only one cameraman, but he was getting really up close and personal with each band member and spending several minutes at a time focusing on each. Abasi also announced from the stage that they were filming for a DVD, and that the new Animals as Leaders album would be out “around November.”
Double excitement! There are still plenty of dates left on the current tour, so make sure you go out and party nerd-style if you live in one of these cities.
Thanks: Joshua K for the above footage of the new AAL song
