Neon Pink Vinyl LP

When unknown virtuoso guitarist Tosin Abasi released his debut solo album under the moniker Animals As Leaders in 2009, few would have predicted the band's meteoric rise over the next two years. Although Abasi earned acclaim as the lead guitarist in the Washington, D.C.-based metalcore act Reflux, it was still a long-shot that an instrumental album of progressive metal with jazz, electronic and ambient flourishes would develop anything more than a cult following.

With Weightless, the group's sophomore effort, Animals As Leaders is revered worldwide as a trailblazing pioneer of modern heavy music. The group's genre-defying compositions have earned extensive praise; Steve Vai called the band 'the future of creative, heavy virtuoso guitar playing,' and MetalSucks recently ranked Abasi No. 2 on their list of modern metal's top guitarists.

Whereas the group's self-titled debut was a collaboration between Abasi and Periphery's Misha Mansoor, Weightless features the recording debut of Animals As Leaders, the true band; Abasi (guitars), Javier Reyes (guitars) and Navene Koperweis (drums). After nearly two years of touring together, the trio wrote and recorded Weightless together in mid-2011, with Koperweis producing and Reyes mixing. The group debuted a new track, 'Isolated Incidents,' during their inaugural headlining tour that summer, which included sellout shows from coast-to-coast.
