Periphery debut two new singles from upcoming album
'Periphery V: Djent is Not a Genre' is due out March 10
Official press release:
Periphery, the D.C.-born band who've been twice nominated for GRAMMY-Awards, have seen each of their last four albums debut in the Top 25 of Billboard's album charts and have lead a new "generation of noodly virtuosos with a love of the unconventional" (Rolling Stone), release their first album in four years with the self-deprecatingly titled Periphery V: Djent is Not a Genre arriving March 10 via the band's own 3DOT Recordings.
Guitarist Mark Holcomb shared:
We spent more time on Periphery V than any other release in our history. We challenged and pushed ourselves harder, and along the way we grew even closer as a band. We are so proud of the final results! I also wanted to mention how exceedingly grateful we are to our fans for being so patient in waiting for this record. We wanted to show our appreciation by giving you two songs today instead of one. We have a very busy 2023 and 2024 planned so we'll see you on the road!" Those singles are "Wildfire" and "Zagreus".
Misha Mansoor added:
I'm really proud of the material and it was certainly a labor of love and a tough album to make. The feeling that we were going to have to give up because it kept taking so long was so overwhelming at times, that to not just overcome it, but to feel so proud of this album has really galvanized us as a band in a way that I don't think any other experience could have.
Periphery V: Djent is Not a Genre pre-orders are available now, here.
