Periphery has announced the addition of Adam Getgood (aka Nolly) to their lineup on a permanent bassist. According to the band, Getgood will handle all bass duties, in addition to some guitar playing, production, and songwriting. Misha Mansoor had this to say: "Nolly has been an honorary Periphery member for the last few years. He filled in on bass for us on our first real tour (Thrash and Burn 2009) and since then has always been there for us and has helped us out immensely. Given that we love him dearly as a friend and found that we have excellent chemistry both on stage and in the studio, and he is a master of all of his instruments, hiring him as our full-time bassist was the logical solution. His irreplaceable ability and insight brought so much to the production and bass on Periphery II: TTIP - we don't feel that anyone else would be able to take on the roles he has filled. He has already been writing with us for new material, and we are proud to have him on board!" Getgood will officially join the band for their October tour of Europe with Between The Buried And Me.
