PERIPHERY Announce Massive North American Spring Tour With
Fair To Midland and Scale The Summit; Post New Video For “Jetpacks Was Yes” Exclusively At GuitarWorld.com

There is no doubt that PERIPHERY are innovators and guitarist Misha Mansoor is being hailed by industry experts and his peers as one of the main purveyors of this current Djent movement that is feverishly spreading throughout the progressive circles. This Maryland based six-piece spent the better half of 2010 on the road and pick up in the New Year right where they left off as they prepare for a massive European tour, which kicks off at the end of the month.

On March 3rd, PERIPHERY makes their much anticipated return to North America alongside Fair To Midland and Scale The Summit. This five-week trek is going to be a monster and see below to view the entire touring itinerary. Also, the group’s visually stunning masterpiece for the track, “Jetpacks Was Yes,” can be viewed now exclusively at the link below. The video was produced by Eric Haviv, Richard Webb, and Brandon Morris of FUGO Studios (www.fugostudios.com). Click on the link below now to check it out.

Guitarist Alex Bois states: “This tour couldn’t have come at a better time! We’ll be fresh off of our first UK/EU tour and hungry to return to our home crowds. We’ve all been HUGE fans of both bands for a while now and it will be great to finally share the road/stage with them. I think our styles compliment each other in such a way that this tour will be educational, as it is exciting. Our new Icarus Lives EP will also be released around this time too, so we’re also stoked to be showcase some tracks from it. See you all soon.”
Vocalist Spencer Sotelo further comments on the new video: “Originally the guys and I wanted to portray a very melancholy vibe. We had been brainstorming ideas together for a few weeks and had some different concepts. I thought it would be awesome to try and bring to life the actual meaning and emotion of the song’s story line in a very literal, yet tasteful way. It is a fictional story about an infinite being who outlives everyone, and everything, he comes in contact with. He comes to realize that although living forever has it’s great benefits, it is a curse because everything has a finite lifespan whether it be people, trees, animals, even planets and solar systems. Therefore, this video is the section of his life where he is reminiscing on his past relationships with different places and people that had meaning to him. The rest is basically showing how he has outlived the very place he had called his home for a great deal of time, and he now has to search for new colonies throughout the galaxy to fit in to and ultimately start over and make a new life.”

Very rarely does a band come along that just defies the boundaries of conventionality, but the experimental, progressive metal outfit PERIPHERY have done just that and have blazed a trail of originality that has sent a shockwave throughout the metal world.
