Periphery Debut “Atropos” Music Video


Periphery have returned with a third single from their next full-length offering, “Periphery V: Djent Is Not A Genre“. “Atropos” emerges as the third track to see a release from that effort and you can watch a video for it below.

The group’s vocalist Spencer Sotelo commented of the track and its A.I. assisted music video:

“The feel of ‘Atropos‘ features a push and pull between pretty/melodic and dark/chaotic sections. That gave me the idea to write about a person who lives, and leans into, a completely superficial lifestyle, and the destructive aftermath of what doing so brings about, not just in that person’s life, but in the world around them. I think the video captures the lyrical essence in its visuals really well, and I’m excited for everyone to enjoy it along with the song.”

Rod Chong (Race Service), who directed the video, commented:

“‘Atropos‘ delves into a surreal world of darkness with a mix of live action and A.I. processed visuals, motion GFX. The irony of using A.I. to bring a music video about A.I. to life is not lost on us. Our aim was to portray humanity’s media fixation, even amidst a war-torn world, as a new form of deity emerges and gains control over us. A captivating and hypnotic result.”

Additionally, two new vinyl variants of that album (translucent black ice with silver splatter / translucent cobalt) have both been made available to pre-order, with a June 01st release date planned for those pressings. You can pick those up here.
