Drummer Matt Halpern of the Maryland-based experimental, progressive metal six-piece PERIPHERY held a clinic at the U.K. installment of the Sonispherefestival, which took place July 8-10, 2011 at Knebworth House. You can now watch the session in two parts below.
PERIPHERY recently parted ways with guitarist Alex Bois.
The band will embark on the “Frak The Gods” headlining tour in September with support from THE HUMAN ABSTRACT, TEXTURES and THE CONTORTIONIST. The trek will kick off on September 2 and will run through October 8.
PERIPHERY released a new EP, “Icarus Lives”, on April 19 via Sumerian Records. This CD features a brand new unreleased track, a series of remixes and video clips.
PERIPHERY‘s self-titled debut album sold around 4,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 128 on the Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
