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.

BAND SHARES BEHIND-THE-SCENES FOOTAGE VIA YOUTUBE

Periphery have shared a second song from the forthcoming Juggernaut albums with “The Bad Thing” streaming via Alternative Press. Watch it here.

Rather than release a conventional album, or even a double-album, the DC-based band has opted to release two albums simultaneously: Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega (Jan. 27, Distort Entertainment / Fontana North).  Pre-orders for the dual albums are available now via MapleMusic.com.

Drummer, Matt Halpern "This new song we're releasing, "The Bad Thing", is definitely one of my favorites from the Juggernaut story. It's one of the first songs we wrote when we started working on Juggernaut, and it's going to be a fun one to play live! It's aggressive and pissed off, both musically AND literally, in terms of the lyrical content, and just hits hard right from the start. I want people to bob their heads and dig this one!”

A series of webisodes documenting the recording process for the Juggernaut albums kicked off last week, with the first clip available now via Distort Entertainment's YouTube channel.  A new episode will be available on Dec. 10.

Periphery launches a five-week tour 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.

The five-part series will run through mid-January with the next clip debuting on Dec. 10.
