Periphery To Finish Out European/UK Tour Without Guitarist Mark Holcomb Due To Family Matter


Periphery have announced that they will be performing as a quartet at their immediate shows as the band’s guitarist Mark Holcomb was forced to head home early to attend to a family matter. In a statement issued earlier today, (November 07th), the band offered the following on their current plans to finish out the tour.

“To our Netherlands and UK fans: We’re sorry to report that Mark had to leave the tour unexpectedly last evening after our show in Berlin to attend to a family matter back in the US. He will not be with us for at least the next few shows, and his availability for the remaining dates along this current tour is unknown at this time. We hope he can join us again as soon as possible.

We fully support Mark‘s decision to leave the tour, and our hearts are with him.

We have big shoes to fill without him, but the remaining shows will go on as planned. The band will be performing as a four-piece.

The German dates were an absolute blast! For those that have tickets to the remaining six shows, we can’t wait to see you and continue this amazing run!

Thanks for your incredible support. Without you, our fans, none of this would matter or be possible.”
