When 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.Fast-forward two-plus years to "Weightless," the group's sophomore effort, and 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 #2 on their list of modern metal's top guitarists and 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.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 that is, 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 this summer, which included sellout shows from coast-to-coast a sign that as quickly as ANIMALS AS LEADERS have risen, the best is yet to come.

Actor, writer, producer and comedian Jim Jefferies announces his new live tour ‘Day Streaming’ set to stop at 31 cities Spring 2014. ‘Day Streaming’ will be Jefferies first full North American tour and kicks off February 14 at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, GA. The tour is produced by AEG Live.
Jefferies is the creator and star of Legit, an edgy, controversial original comedy series which returns to FXX for a second season on January 8. In Legit, Jefferies portrays a heightened version of himself as a comedian from Australia who realizes there's more to life (and his career) than the rock and roll lifestyle of stand up comedy. Prior to Legit, Jefferies has appeared on numerous TV shows in England including Channel 4’s The History of Offensive Humor, BBC1’s Heaven and Earth, and ITV2’s Comedy Cults. U.S. audiences got their first taste of Jefferies when he appeared on HBO’s Down and Dirty with Jim Norton which in turn lead to his critically acclaimed and international hit one hour HBO special, I Swear to God. He followed that up with a Showtime special titled Alchoholocaust and Fully Functional on The EPIX Network.
A headline performer in North America, Asia, South Africa and Europe, Jefferies got his comedy footing while performing stand up in Britain. His numerous festival performances put events such as The Edinburgh Fringe, Just For Laughs, The South African Comedy Festival, Reading and Leeds Festival and The Glastonbury Festival on the map.
