Periphery
Periphery
Hailing from Washington DC, Periphery is one of the freshest progressive metal acts on the scene today. With their signature blend of polymetric grooves and soaring melodies, the band continues to push the envelope of modern metal music. The Band released their first full length album 'Periphery' on April 20th in 2010. It debuted at #128 on the Billboard Top 200, as well as #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.

Periphery formed in 2005 and currently consists of Misha 'Bulb' Mansoor, Jake Bowen and Mark Holcomb on guitars, Matt Halpern on drums, and Spencer Sotelo on vocals. Since its inception, the band has been relentless its effort to have their music be heard. Allowing free access to almost their entire catalog, including over one hundred and thirty download-able songs, this self produced band is seeking to redefine the way music is experienced.

Periphery has toured extensively since 2008, supporting artists including DevilDriver, Emmure, Veil of Maya, Animals as Leaders, God Forbid, The Dillinger Escape Plan, A Life Once Lost, This Time Its War, Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza, Fear Factory, Darkest Hour, Fair To Midland, The Human Abstract, Textures, The Contortionist and Stray From The Path. The band's first European headline tour in early 2011 titled 'The League of Extraordinary Djentlemen' with TesseracT, Monuments and The Safety Fire was a huge success. They released their 'Icarus EP' on April 19th, 2011. Make sure to catch them on their current European tour supporting prog-metal legend Dream Theater!
