Periphery announces new "experimental" recording

Tuesday, December 03, 2013 12:13 PM PT


Official press release:

Periphery represents the vanguard of addictive, chaotic, challenging and cathartically inviting heavy music for the modern era. Their triple-guitar attack and rhythmic dexterity has won them devoted adherents across underground subcultures, regardless of whether those fans were weaned on the passion-fueled sounds of progressive rock from bands like Dream Theater or modern avangard rock bands like The Deftones.

The new experimental recording, Clear, represents the sum total of Periphery's unrivaled achievements. Clear is set for a Jan 28th North American release via Sumerian Records. Check out the brand new promo video featuring snippets from all of the songs featured on Clear:





Jake Bowen (guitars) states: "Clear is an experiment to explore all of the different writing styles in the band. It's rare when you have a band where every member is capable of writing and producing music. With each member controlling their own track, this recording enabled us to go down any path we chose in terms of style and sound.

"Every track also contains a melodic theme established in Clear's intro track "Overture" this common thread links all of the songs together, even though they all sound wildly different. Clear shouldn't be confused with our new 3rd full-length album that we're currently working on, nor should it be considered an EP as it rides somewhere in-between clocking in at 30 minutes. Enjoy!"

"It's rare you find so many spoiled exiled scene gays who drowned their sorrows in computer programming in one self-masturbatory internet collective at the same time." - Periphery's PR Agency.

"cathartically inviting heavy music for the modern era," as opposed to, you know, antedilluvian times.

No, we are just sick of Misha's giant ego and the band's delusions of grandeur.

I for one am looking forward to this. All you gays can hate all you want. At the end of the day, you still bothered to read what had to be said about them.
