Periphery neues Album im Januar 2015

Die Progressive Djent Senzation Periphery aus Washington D.C. USA werden am 26. Januar 2015 Ihr neues Doppel-Album "Juggernat: Alpha and Jaggernaut Omega" über Century Media Records veröffentlichen und dann auch, neben ein paar Shows in Russland, nach Europa und natürlich nach Deutschland kommen um zusammen mit Shining als Support von Devin Townsend Project spielen. Die Tourdaten findet Ihr natürlich hier auf New-Core.de/Shows.

Und hier könnt Ihr schon mal ein Statement von Gitarrist Misha Mansoor und Drummer Matt Halpern zum kommenden Doppel-Album und der anstehenden Tour nachlesen. Man darf also gespannt sein auf das neue Werk der Progressive Djent Combo aus D.C. Wir werden euch auf dem Laufenden halten. 

(Quelle: Century Media) Indem Periphery die komplexen und atypischen Rhythmen sowie die technische Präzision von Math Rock mit der Brutalität von progressivem Metal mischt, hat die Band die Genregrenzen progressiver Musik neu definiert. Mit ihrer ureigenen Mischung aus polymetrischen Grooves und treibenden Melodien lotet die Band die Grenzen modernen Metals aus. Mit ihrem ersten Studioalbum „Periphery“ konnte die Band bereits beachtliche Erfolge feiern und platzierte sich auf Position #2 in den US Billboard Heatseekers Charts.

"Given the nature and complexity of theJuggernaut’ story, we've actually done something different and exciting in regards to the release,” explains drummer Matt Halpern.  “’Juggernaut’ is a story that is told through our music, and we want our audience to fully digest the whole experience. Because ‘Juggernaut’ is very detailed and dense in terms of character development, peaks and valleys, climaxes and resolutions we've divided the story and music in two, in the form of two separate albums. ‘Juggernaut: Alpha’, the first part of the story, focuses on the back story and character development, while part two/album two, ‘Juggernaut: Omega’, focuses on some pretty serious and gut-wrenching events, taking you for a thrill ride along the main character's complex journey.  Although the albums are split in two physically, the story is only complete when the albums are digested consecutively, allowing the listener to recognize and hear the lyrical and musical overlapping themes, foreshadowing, and connected ideas.”

“This is new ground and it’s exciting,”
band founder and guitarist Misha Mansoor says of the band’s approach to writing and recording ‘Juggernaut’, which saw all six members work collectively for the first time in PERIPHERY’s history. It's a way to shake things up. Everyone contributed to everything, even if it wasn't his instrument. It wasn’t about confrontation. Everyone was focused on creating a really cool album.”

PERIPHERY will embark on extensive touring around the release of “Juggernaut”. First will be a five-week North American tour with support coming from Nothing More, Wovenwar and Thank You Scientist. Next on their agenda are Russia, a full European tour with Devin Townsend Project and Shining which leads to a PERIPHERY headlining show in London, UK, on April 1st.

Misha Mansoor on going to Russia: "We are very excited to finally play Russia!  We have heard so many amazing things about the shows and fans supporting us there and we can't wait to rock out with them at the shows.” And on headlining in London he has the following to say: “It has been too long London, you are one of our favorite cities to play ever.  We couldn't come to Europe and miss you guys so we are stoked to be coming back finally!  See you there.”
