Periphery Band Shot

Periphery are streaming one half of their new dual album in full.

Juggernaut: Omega is the second part of a twin concept release, also including Juggernaut: Alpha.

“Although the albums are split in two physically, the story is only complete when the albums are digested consecutively,” says drummer Matt Halpern. “This allows the listener to recognise and hear the lyrical and musical overlapping themes, foreshadowing, and connected ideas.”

Periphery will be playing three dates in support of Devin Townsend in March, before playing their own headline London show in April.

Mar 29: Bristol O2 Academy (with Devin Townsend)
Mar 30: Glasgow O2 ABC (with Devin Townsend)
Mar 31: Manchester Academy (with Devin Townsend)
Apr 01: London O2 Academy Islington (headline show, sold out)
