Progressive metal “djentalmen”, Periphery, have announced an extended tour to coincide with their upcoming third studio album, “Juggernaut: Alpha & Omega”, set for release on January 27, 2015.
Periphery fans have been patiently waiting for the release of the new album, which was originally set for a release just a few months after the “Periphery II” LP (2012), but countless delays have turned “Juggernaut” into one of the most anticipated metal albums of 2015.
Since “Periphery II” the band released the experimental EP, “Clear” (2014), which was meant to hold fans over while they awaited “Juggernaut”, but it received mixed reviews.
In November, Sumerian Records confirmed the “Juggernaut’s” release for January 2015 and shortly after released a short “webisode” series complete with interviews with the band, in addition to three songs from the upcoming album: “The Scourge”, “The Bad Thing” and “22 Faces.”
Periphery fans now have a lot to look forward to, as the conceptual double album will feature seventeen new tracks and an extended tour with Nothing More, Wovenwar, and Thank You Scientist.
“Periphery hasn’t had a show in Chicago for over a year, so I’m going to make sure to catch them in February,” said Chicago resident Conor Shea. Periphery will be performing at the House of Blues on Tuesday, February 3. Tickets are available at the House of Blues website.
“Juggernaut: Alpha and Omega” is available for pre-order on the iTunes store and Periphery merchandise website.
