Killer news for fans of progressive metal! Two of the biggest titans of the genre -- Animals as Leaders and Periphery -- will be embarking on a massive fall tour! It begins Oct. 31 in Ohio, and runs all through Dec. 2. They will be joined by Car Bomb and Astronoid as support.

The members of each band are as excited about the tour as fans will be. Animals as Leaders' Tosin Abasi says, “This tour is a long time coming. Beyond being some of our favorite musicians, the guys in Periphery are some of our favorite people! Our careers share common roots and at times, common members. We can’t wait to bring this show to you all.”

Periphery's Mark Holcomb adds, "While we've done some short runs and one-off shows with AAL over the years, the idea to do a full-scale, co-headlining tour of North America has been something both our camps have discussed for the better part of seven years. Unfortunately, we were never able to line things up. Until now. We were also able to snag two amazing bands for portions of this tour as well, Car Bomb for the first half and Astronoid for the second half."

Car Bomb's run goes from Oct. 31 - Nov. 15, and Astronoid supports through Dec. 2.
