Periphery Confirm New Guitarist


Periphery have officially added guitarist Mark Holcomb (Haunted Shores) to their lineup. He will serve as the full-time replacement for Alex Bois, who exited the group earlier this year.

Speaking on that, and the bands upcoming overseas tour with Dream Theater, Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor stated:

“We are happy to announce that Mark Holcomb (Haunted Shores) will be joining the Periphery ranks as a full time guitarist! He toured with with us our headlining run of Australia, our Frak The Gods US headliner and our 2 shows opening for Dream Theater, and we feel that we have found a perfect fit for us both live and in the studio.

We are extremely excited to have him on board, and cant wait to show you all the cool new music we have been working on together! Since we made arrangements for the tour before Mark was inducted, our good friend Nolly (Red Seas Fire) will be filling in on the European tour opening for Dream Theater. However that will be the last tour we do with a fill-in guitarist, as Mark will join on full time after that!”

Meanwhile, Holcomb spoke on his addition to the group with the following:

“I couldn’t be more excited as not only have these guys been great friends of mine for a long time, but I consider every last one of them musical siblings in a sense. Each of us brings something different to the table and I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish”
