During a recent interview with MetalInjection.net, while on the Legacy Tour, Revocation front man David Davidson revealed the band has completed writing for a new record and plan to enter the studio after the completion of the band's current tour.

“Hey everyone, it's been an amazing whirlwind of a year for PERIPHERY and there are no signs of slowing down anytime soon. We are currently preparing for a long tour with Darkest Hour, Veil of Maya and Revocation, which is going to be a blast and we can't wait to get back out there to play for everyone. Also, we encourage everyone to come and meet us at our merch booth after each and every show to come and hang with us. We love hearing feedback from our fans and getting a chance to meet new people."
“We also will have a fresh new, longer setlist with a BRAND SPANKIN' NEW SONG and a few fun surprises just for this tour. We are also giving lessons on our respective instruments (a lot of days are already booked!), so please come out early to see us and jam with us. Contact us on myspace or facebook if you are interested in lessons."
“I am also really happy to announce that PERIPHERY is well into the writing process for our upcoming EP. We have tracked most of the instrumentation and vocals and are making final tweaks on everything but you guys are in for a treat. There will be some re-tweaked material, some rare material and some brand new material on it so there will be something for everyone." More...

It contains footage from this past years whirlwind of gigs, including our Japanese tour, our CD release show and some other backstage/behind the scenes footage.

New Jersey death metal band The Binary Code has posted part one of a tour recap of their first national tour with Revocation & Hypno5e on MySpace. Read an except below:
"So, we just returned home from our first National United States tour w/ Revocation & Hypno5e! We had our final show Sunday night in Allston (Boston), MA @ Unit 11 w/ Sexcrement & Tone Locs' (Anthony of Revocation) band Living Void. I just wanted to point out that the Unit 11 show was by far one of the best & most fun shows this band has EVER played in 6 years. I think the country's music scene could learn a thing or two from the scene in Allston, MA."
"As you all know, we started our first date in Brooklyn, NY. That show was an unbelievable kick off to a fun tour. Morale was up, the fun was in our eyes, and we were off to tour the country. After playing an awesome show at the Croc Rock in Allentown, PA, we decided to take a part of the drive that night after the show to head towards the next venue in Buffalo, NY. We stopped about 2 hours in (being we were exhausted beyond belief), and hung out in the van at a hotel parking lot until 6am or so. Brett & Todd drank 40s, we all laughed, farted, pissed in cups, listened to Howard Stern, and had a good time."
"That morning, we woke up shortly after our 2 hour siesta to continue our trek towards Buffalo, NY. Weather conditions were moderate: slushy snow substances matted the floors of the roads, light flakes of snow softly dabbed the land; the roads were pretty clear. Cruising a solid 55MPH on a two lane highway road alongside a slope entertaining a frozen river, we neared a bend that forewarned the beginning of a long day." More...
New Jersey progressive death metal outfit THE BINARY CODE are currently on tour with Relapse tech-thrashers Revocation and French experimentalists Hypno5e on the 2010 Metal As Art Tour, and took some time out of their hectic schedule to check in from the road.
Guitarist Jesse Zuretti writes, “We've just rounded the turnpoint to begin our trek back east! From the very start of tour we knew we were going to have a good time."
"As I'm sure some of you may have heard, we were in a pretty bad van accident just a few days into the tour. The guy whom hit us was found responsible in full for the accident, and rightfully so. Nevertheless, our drummer, Umar (along with our wizardly manager), pulled it together and found a way for us to continue the tour in a minivan rental. If I might add, we also would've been homebound if it weren't for Hypno5e and Revocation sharing gear and stow space." More...
