Animals As Leaders + TesseracT
Due to circumstances beyond their control Animals As Leaders have postponed their October UK & European headline dates with the aim of rescheduling them in 2013. Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase.
Animals As Leaders are revered worldwide as a trailblazing pioneer of modern heavy music. The Washington DC group's genre-defying compositions have earned extensive praise, with Steve Vai calling them "the future of creative, heavy virtuoso guitar playing". The diversity of their music has enabled them to tour with a wide variety of acts, including Deftones, Underoath, Circa Survive, BTBAM, The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless, Thursday, Dredg and, on the 2010 Summer Slaughter tour, even Decapitated.

TesseracT is a progressive metal band from Reading, that uses math metal, djent, and technical metal elements in their music.
Fans will often focus on the quintets time signatures and musical complexity, but TesseracT are far from an exclusionary exercise in tech/extreme prog metal pomposity. They fully embrace their experimental, prog sensibility without excessive indulgence or pretentiousness; delivering atmospheric, metallic songs that stir strong emotions and evoke powerful mental images. All of which, they argue, is at the core surprisingly simple.
Since the formation of their five-piece line-up in Spring 2007, have picked up richly deserved props from peers (Textures, Meshuggah) and press alike (Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Scuzz).
