Periphery unleash The Bad Thing

Periphery have released a video for their track “The Bad Thing.”

The song is lifted from the band’s Juggernaut: Omega album, part of a twin release earlier this year alongside companion LP Juggernaut: Alpha.

Speaking to Billboard about the song, Periphery drummer Matt Halpern said: “We thought a live performance was a great way to show in the intensity of the song, and show how it makes us feel onstage.”

“We hope to release more visual assets in the future that tell the Juggernaut story as a whole, rather than one song at a time.”

Periphery continue to refuse to explain the story behind the Juggernaut albums, but Halpern says of “The Bad Thing”: “It explains a pretty angry and aggressive part. The main character has come to some pretty deep realisations about his life, and he’s choosing to take a more active approach into solving his problems.”

Periphery Band Shot

Periphery are streaming a new track, “The Bad Thing”, from their forthcoming twin albums.

Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega are slated for release on the 26th of January via Century Media.

Periphery drummer Matt Halpern recently explained of the twin album concept: “Although the albums are split in two physically, the story is only complete when the albums are digested consecutively. This allows the listener to recognise and hear the lyrical and musical overlapping themes.”

The band will play a series of dates in the UK in March, supporting Devin Townsend and then headlining. Confirmed shows are as follows:

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