On August 17, Josh Rundquist (a.k.a. That Drummer Guy) conducted an interview with guitarist Jake Bowen of Maryland-based experimental, progressive metallers PERIPHERY at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin stop of the “Summer Slaughter Tour”. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTubeclip below.
PERIPHERY recently canceled its participation in the West Coast leg of the “Summer Slaughter Tour” “due to a family emergency.”
The band’s sophomore album, “Periphery II: This Time It’s Personal”, sold nearly 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 44 on The Billboard 200 chart.
“Periphery II: This Time It’s Personal” was released in North America on July 3 via Sumerian Records and will be made available in Europe on July 16 through Century Media Records. The CD features guest appearances by John Petrucci (DREAM THEATER), Guthrie Govan (THE ARISTOCRATS) and Wes Hauch (THE FACELESS).
