New Periphery Album Announced
If you've got your tickets to Download sorted already, you will already be aware that BKP friends Periphery will be out and about on tour this summer. They're going to be touring their new album, Periphery III: Select Difficulty. This is set for release on July 22nd, 2016. The band have released a trailer video here, and from what we can hear it's going to be immense. Of course, BKP fans will know Periphery as 'That Juggernaut Band', thanks to guitarist Misha Mansoor's signature pickup, the Juggernaut.
The press release says:
“Periphery III: Select Difficulty is finally complete and we’re extremely excited to show everyone,” said guitar player Jake Bowen. “For the past couple of years we’ve been refining our collaborative process as a band and we feel that it’s only getting better with the completion of this album. We spent two months writing songs that are not only representative of the Periphery sound but also reflect where all of us are as musicians, working together has helped us tread new ground musically and creatively. In support of Periphery III you’ll see us hit the road in the States this summer with SikTh, Chon, and Toothgrinder on the Sonic Unrest tour, it’s going to be a blast! See you on the road!”

Periphery’s own Adam “Nolly” Getgood oversaw production for the album as he did with the Juggernaut releases. 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."
Personally we can't wait to see what Adam comes up with next, and he released a statement about his plans:
“Touring with Periphery has shown me some of the most incredible experiences I could ever have imagined, to meet amazing people all over the world and to create friendships for life; it has truly been an honour to perform in front of every audience who has watched us play over the years. However the touring life isn’t something that everyone can continue doing indefinitely, and for me, the time has come where I want to settle into a more normal existence, be able to make plans further into the future than the touring life enables, and to be able to focus more on the studio side of my music career,” explained Nolly. “I will, however, be remaining as a band member and contributing in any way that I can while the band is off the road; I love all of my fellow bandmates like brothers and I’m so grateful for the incredible support they’ve shown as I make this huge life change. I know they are going to be taking the music and performances to the next level when they hit the road later this year.”
We're all so excited to hear Periphery III: Select Difficulty in full and hopefully catch the boys somewhere in the UK this summer!
