Periphery's Latest Webisode Spotlights Singer Spencer Sotelo

The latest Periphery webisode arrives today, with singer Spencer Sotelo discussing work on the two forthcoming albums, Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega (Jan. 27, Distort Inc. / Fontana North)

“Spencer says something amazing,” said Sotelo. “In this webisode, you are going to take a walk with me on the wild side of the vocal booth. It was a long and rigorous task to track the vocals on an 80 minutes double album, but as you can see in this video, we still like to have fun in the studio no matter how far the overall sanity level is pushed. You'll get a peek at me tracking vocals to songs that you will otherwise not hear until the records are released. Enjoy and get stoked because juggernaut is right around the corner and will be released before you know it!”

A series of webisodes documenting the recording sessions for the Juggernaut releases have been shared with fans over the last few weeks, with previous episodes featuring Matt Halpern, Jake Bowen and Mark Holcomb.  The clips can be found on Distort Entertainment’s YouTube channel .

Revolver Magazine, in a cover story featuring Sotelo, said the band “stand at the vanguard of a new, and thoroughly modern, musical movement” and Rolling Stone proclaimed the new releases Periphery’s “most ambitious project yet.”

Digital and physical pre-orders for the pair of albums are available now with instant downloads of “22 Faces,” “The Scourge” and “The Bad Thing” available via iTunes: Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega. Physical pre-order bundles, which include The JuggerDoc, a documentary on the making of the new albums, are available via MapleMusic.com

Periphery kicks off their first tour in support of Juggernaut on Jan. 10 at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, N.C. A video teaser for the tour, which includes openers for the upcoming tour are Nothing More, Wovenwar and Thank You Scientist, is available here.

New Periphery Webisode Features Mark Holcomb

Periphery has released the third in their ongoing series of webisodes, with the new clip highlighting guitar player Matt Holcomb’s work on the Juggernaut releases.

“Juggernaut was a huge opportunity for me to grow as a musician and bandmate. These 2 albums mark the first time we’ve truly collaborated on every song from the ground up, so it really encouraged us to work together and communicate healthily for a process that spanned almost a year. These webisodes are meant to give you some insight into that, but also offer a more personal, unfamiliar side than what you may be used to seeing from Periphery.” explained Holcomb.

Rolling Stone premiered the single, “22 Faces,” last week, describing Periphery’s new music as “the group's most ambitious project yet” and going on to say the releases “feature some of the band's most accessible music; there's plenty of the heavily syncopated Meshuggah-worshipping tech metal with which Periphery first made their name, but there's also pulsing electronica, emo-inflected hard rock, spacey jazz-fusion and hooky acoustic pop – sometimes in the same song.”

Digital and physical pre-orders for Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega are available now with instant downloads of “22 Faces,” “The Scourge” and “The Bad Thing” available via iTunes. Physical pre-order bundles, which include The JuggerDoc, a documentary on the making of the new albums, are available via MapleMusic.com.

Previous webisodes, featuring drummer Matt Halpern and guitar player Jake Bowen, are available now via Distort Entertainment’ YouTube channel.

A five-week tour kicks off on Jan. 10 at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, N.C. A video teaser for the tour, which includes openers for the upcoming tour are Nothing More, Wovenwar and Thank You Scientist, is available here. Tickets are on-sale now with VIP packages available via Soundrink.com.

Periphery Spotlight Jake Bowen In New Webisode


Periphery’s second webisode spotlights guitar player Jake Bowen and his work on the upcoming dual albums, Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega (Jan. 27, Distort Inc. / Fontana North).  The clip can be viewed via Distort’s YouTube channel here .

“Recording Juggernaut:Alpha/Omega was an adventure throughout the entire process, from locating a suitable studio, setting it up, developing tones and ultimately recording the final product,” explained Bowen. “Since everyone in Periphery contributed to the process of producing and recording Juggernaut we made sure to document the experience of each member so you can have each piece of the story.”

The DC-based band has shared two songs from the forthcoming albums: “The Scourge” and “The Bad Thing”. Pre-orders for the new albums are available on MapleMusic.com now.

Periphery previously released a webisode that focused on drummer Matt Halpern and his work on the new releases. Four more clips will be released leading up the Juggernaut releases, with the next clip available on Dec. 21.

A five-week tour kicks off on Jan. 10 at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, N.C. A video teaser for the tour, which includes openers for the upcoming tour are Nothing More, Wovenwar and Thank You Scientist, is available here. Tickets are on-sale now with VIP packages available via Soundrink.com.
