Periphery Comments On North American Tour

Maryland based six-piece Periphery is embarking on a North American tour alongside Fair To Midland and Scale The Summit.

Guitarist Alex Bois states: “This tour couldn't have come at a better time! We are fresh off of our first UK/EU tour and hungry to return to our home crowds. We've all been HUGE fans of both bands for a while now and it will be great to finally share the road/stage with them. I think our styles compliment each other in such a way that this tour will be educational, as it is exciting. Our new Icarus Lives EP will also be released on April 19th, so we're also stoked to be showcase some tracks from it.

“We just drove over 1,400 miles to Houston to start our tour with Fair to Midland and Scale the Summit. Unfortunately, FTM and STS had to pull-out of the first four dates in Texas due to an illness but fear not, we are still playing those venues on those dates as a headliner with a go-go-gadget extendo set-list for all to enjoy. Well, all except today in Houston where we decided to find our own venue (house of creeps) and do a completely free show! Yes, our show is cheaper than Walmart or Target.

“We'll meet up with our boys in FTM and STS on Tuesday in Arizona and begin bamboozling North America. Both of these bands are amazing and were stoked to see everyone's reactions to such a tasty line-up. See you all soon.”

The band's upcoming dates are as follows:

Scale The Summit Provides Recording Update

Guitarist Chris Letchford of Texas progressive metal act Scale the Summit has released the following update in regards to the bands forthcoming studio album, currently being recorded at Paint It Black Studios in Orlando, Florida with producer Mark Lewis.

"We have been home writing for quite some time now and I’m excited to say that we just made it to Orlando this morning to start work on our next record with with Mark Lewis. I have been a fan of the production work that he has been doing for many years now. I love the ‘hugeness’ of the recordings he does and I felt that is what was missing from our last record. We’re all really excited to be working with Mark on this one. We have been working out a lot of new dynamic ideas for this new record and I know he is the guy to really help us capture all of it. We’ll be doing 12 songs this time, all of which are really a step up from our latest album. I can’t wait to get these songs finished and released for everyone to hear."

Dio Comments On Prosthetic Charity Auction

Prosthetic Records is currently auctioning an Epiphone Prophecy Futura Custom EX on eBay, with all proceeds benefitting the T.J. Martell Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports research for cancer, AIDS and leukemia. The guitar will be signed by the six Prosthetic acts who will play the label's inaugural SXSW showcase at Mohawk in Austin, Texas on Wednesday night (Mar. 17): Scale The Summit, Landmine Marathon, Withered, Book of Black Earth, The Funeral Pyre and Clinging To The Trees of a Forest Fire.

The T.J. Martell Foundation was recommended to Prosthetic by the management of legendary vocalist Ronnie James Dio, who was diagnosed with stomach cancer late last year. A 501(c)3 non-profit founded in the 1970s, the Foundation has helped Dio receive key treatment in his
ongoing battle against cancer. More information on the organization can be found at www.tjmartellfoundation.org.

Prosthetic was honored to receive these words of encouragement directly from Dio himself shortly after the auction went live on Monday:

"It's great to be a part of your wonderful charitable event, and all the caring performers who are giving of themselves to aid the charity of my choice. My current misfortune has opened my eyes to the constant need for funds to battle the ravages of cancer, and I am therefore pleased to endorse your efforts to auction off an Epiphone guitar signed by the aforementioned musicians to benefit the T.J.Martell Cancer Foundation. Let's hope a generous amount of money can be raised for this ultra-worthy cause. Thanks so much for you concern and humanity. It's a gesture of kindness I will never forget.

Love and Magic to you all,
Ronnie James Dio"

Interested parties can bid on the auction or learn more about the
