Animals as Leaders Will Fight You “Tooth and Claw”
Anyone in the mood for a delightful late afternoon treat? Well, good — because such a treat for you have we. It’s the new Animals as Leaders song, “Tooth and Claw,” and it is seriously kicking my ass in a major way. By turns djenty and dreamy, it’s everything you want from an AAL jam. Check it out below… as a bonus, it’s our first taste of how the band sounds with new drummer Matthew Garstka (spoiler: still awesome).
“Tooth and Claw” will appear on Animals as Leaders’ new album, The Joy of Motion, which comes out March 25 on Sumerian. The band will kick off a tour with After the Burial, Navene K., and Chon on February 24; get dates here. The band will also headline the fourth annual MetalSucks South by South Death SXSW showcase on Friday, March 18; they’ll be joined by After the Burial, Ringworm, Iron Reagan, Mutoid Man, Whores, and East of the Wall.
