The band is Animals as Leaders and they are the brain child of Tosin Abasi, former 7-string guitar player for Reflux. He wrote and played all the guitar and bass on the album, however Animas as Leaders is very much a band. Had to do a 5 hour drive hungover with my buddy asleep in the front seat, and I listened to this album, which is also titled Animals as Leaders, the whole way. I honestly feel like a better person for it. I suggest you get it.
