Following the accidental release (a magazine ad surfaced prematurely) of details pertaining to their forthcoming album, Periphery has now confirmed that the release will indeed hit stores on July 3rd via Sumerian Records. Guitarist Mark Holcomb had the following to say to GuitarWorld:
"The album is finally done and ready to go — July 3 is the date! After all the countless hours of work we've put in over the past seven months, we can honestly say the vision we had in mind for this record has been fulfilled — and then some! Every single member of this band stepped it up and, as a result, this album truly feels like a collaborative effort."Additionally, Holcomb confirmed the appearance of Dream Theater's John Petrucci, in addition to several other notable guitarists:
"We also managed to get not one, but three of our favorite guitarists to do guest solos on the record. Wes Hauch (The Faceless), Guthrie Govan (The Aristocrats) and John Petrucci (Dream Theater) all laid down guest solos on the album and they turned out incredible."Additional details are expected to surface in the near future.
