Periphery announces new guitarist

Tuesday, October 18, 2011 1:05 PM PT / 4,286 views

Periphery has announced the addition of guitar player Mark Holcomb (of Haunted Shores) to their permanent line-up. Misha Mansoor comments: "We are happy to announce that Mark Holcomb will be joining the Periphery ranks as a full-time guitarist! He toured with with us our headlining run of Australia, our Frak The Gods US headliner and our 2 shows opening for Dream Theater, and we feel that we have found a perfect fit for us both live and in the studio. We are extremely excited to have him on board, and cant wait to show you all the cool new music we have been working on together! Since we made arrangements for the tour before Mark was inducted, our good friend Nolly (Red Seas Fire) will be filling in on the European tour opening for Dream Theater. However that will be the last tour we do with a fill-in guitarist, as Mark will join on full-time after that!" Thomas Murphy (bass) states: "The most important thing about a band is the chemistry between its members. We've all known Mark for years and are very proud to announce him as our newest member. Not only is he an amazing writer and guitarist, but also an amazing person. We can't wait to see what the future holds for the band now that he has joined." Mark Holcomb comments: "I couldn't be more excited as not only have these guys been great friends of mine for a long time, but I consider every last one of them musical siblings in a sense. Each of us brings something different to the table and I can't wait to see what we can accomplish."

mark is such a cool dude. I've talked to him a few times at their shows and I'm stoked he's finally in the band full-time.

When they break up, Guitar Center is going to be stoked with a dozen of the new applicants they get

i got him to email me some tracks a year ago and one was real old school Misery Signals sounding with some With Resistance vibe thrown in. the riffing was good but i never went online to hear the finished track with vocals.


xfallofmanx 10/18/2011 11:15:02 PM

....because the vocals most likely ruined it lol. cool guy but it's gotta be hard being in a band with such a big douche pulling ALL the strings...honestly i think that band would be wayyyyy better without "bulb" now. oh well. shit genre.

"We can't wait to see what the future holds for the band now that he has joined."..uuum my guess is release one more cd then have another gay ass lambgoat thread announcing you amicable split from bulbs taint. gays
