He toured with with us our headlining run of Australia, our Frak The Gods US headliner and our 2 shows opening for Dream Theater, and we feel that we have found a perfect fit for us both live and in the studio. We are extremely excited to have him on board, and cant wait to show you all the cool new music we have been working on together! Since we made arrangements for the tour before Mark was inducted, our good friend Nolly (Red Seas Fire) will be filling in on the European tour opening for Dream Theater. However that will be the last tour we do with a fill-in guitarist, as Mark will join on full time after that!"

Periphery Comments On Dream Theater Tour

Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor has posted the following statement online, in response to the news that the band will be opening for Dream Theater on its upcoming tour.

"To say that the chance For Periphery to open for Dream Theater is a dream come true would be a gross understatement. Dream Theater has been one of my favorite bands for about as long as I can remember. I started taking guitar seriously and bought my first 7 string because of John Petrucci. If it weren’t for Dream Theater, Periphery simply would not exist. I can’t express in words just how excited we are for the opportunity to share the stage with them."
