Periphery Announce New Album, Periphery III: Select Difficulty

  • Axl Rosenberg

Hot DAMN, the boys in Periphery have a work ethic. They just released two albums last year, Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega, and they’ve ALREADY completed another full-length. Periphery III: Select Difficulty, produced once again by the band’s own Adam “Nolly” Getgood, will come out July 22 on Sumerian.

But wait! There’s more! According to the press release…

“Nolly will no longer be a touring member of Periphery, as he will be expanding his production work in his native UK.  He remains an integral part, and a member, of Periphery. At this time no decision has been made about a touring bassist.”

Interesting. This band has, of course, gone through many line-up changes and come out the other end just fine, so I’m not worried about this development.

And yet, there’s even MORE! The band has announced a headlining tour for August, which will feature support from SikTh, Chon, and Toothgrinder. That would be a kick-ass line-up no matter what, but the fact that it’s SikTh’s first-ever U.S. tour makes it downright unmissable.

Dates are below. Presumably we’ll get to hear some of Periphery III soon.
