Periphery Announce New Album, Set Dates For Tour With SikTh, CHON & Toothgrinder


Periphery have titled their new album, “Periphery III: Select Difficulty“, and will have it in stores on July 22nd through Sumerian Records. Guitarist Jake Bowen discussed the outing:

“‘Periphery III: Select Difficulty‘ is finally complete and we’re extremely excited to show everyone. 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!”

That tour will take place without the album’s producer Adam “Nolly” Getgood, who also plays bass in the outfit. Getgood has decided to step down from his live role in the band, with a touring bassist to be enlisted. Getgood, who was most recently in the studio with Devin Townsend, will instead be focusing on his production career—though he remains a member of Periphery. He commented:

“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.”

“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.”
