Periphery’s “Juggernaut” Becomes Two Albums, Tour With Nothing More, Wovenwar, Etc. Revealed


Periphery will headline the ‘Juggernaut Tour‘ in early 2015 with Nothing More, Wovenwar and Thank You Scientist filling out the bill. Periphery will be out in support of their coming new albums “Juggernaut: Alpha” & “Juggernaut: Omega“, both due on Sumerian Records on January 27th. Drummer Matt Halpern said of the now two-album affair:

“Given the nature and complexity of the Juggernaut story, we’ve actually done something different and exciting in regards to the release. Juggernaut is a story that is told through our music, and we want our audience to fully digest the whole experience. Because Juggernaut is very detailed and dense in terms of character development, peaks and valleys, climaxes and resolutions we’ve divided the story and music in two, in the form of two separate albums.

Juggernaut: Alpha, the first part of the story, focuses on the back story and character development, while part two/album two, Juggernaut: Omega, focuses on some pretty serious and gut-wrenching events, taking you for a thrill ride along the main character’s complex journey. Although the albums are split in two physically, the story is only complete when the albums are digested consecutively, allowing the listener to recognize and hear the lyrical and musical overlapping themes, foreshadowing, and connected ideas.”

Guitarist Misha Mansoor added:

“This is new ground and it’s exciting. It’s a way to shake things up. Everyone contributed to everything, even if it wasn’t his instrument. It wasn’t about confrontation. Everyone was focused on creating a really cool album.”
