For fans and supporters of the guitar virtuoso of Animals As Leaders, Tosin Abasi

Tosin Abasi is the mastermind behind the rising band Animals As Leaders.

He wears lady shorts.

Animals as Leaders was formed "out of the ashes" of guitarist Tosin Abasi's previous band, Reflux, a progressive Hardcore band. The heavy metal record label Prosthetic Records saw Abasi's guitar work and asked him to create a solo album for them. Abasi initially declined, feeling such an endeavor would be "egotistical and unnecessary". When Reflux disbanded, Abasi decided to take the label's offer. The name Animals as Leaders was inspired by Daniel Quinn's 1992 novel Ishmael, which addresses anthropocentrism. Abasi coined the name as a reminder "that we're all essentially animals".
The project's first album, Animals as Leaders, was recorded in early 2008. Abasi recorded all guitar and bass tracks on the album.
