Periphery Announces "Escape From The Studio" Tour Dates

Progressive metal outfit Periphery will be emerging from the studio to hit the road this fall. For fans new and old this is the final tour supporting 2012’s sophomore release, "Periphery II," or as it’s known to die-hard fans, "This Time it’s Personal." The bill also features The Contortionist, Intervals, and Toothgrinder.

Sponsored by D’Addario and its family of musical instrument brands used specifically by Periphery (guitar/bass strings, Evans Drumheads and Promark Drumsticks) in conjunction with Bandhappy (founded by Periphery drummer Matt Halpern), the Escape From the Studio Tour begins September 18th.

The trek kicks off just as Periphery finishes up a third full-length, entitled "Juggernaut." Jeffrey Kaye, Global Director of Artist Relations at D’Addario states, “In our quest to find musicians that best represent our brands, occasionally we stumble upon an entire band who not only blow our minds as musicians, but who share our passion to push performances beyond the four walls of the stage. We’re delighted to be working with Periphery on this extraordinary tour."

Guitarist Misha Mansoor states, “We’ve all been in intense writing mode all year and are already itching to tour again. Drum tracking has wrapped and today the rest of us officially enter the studio for Juggernaut, so are excited to give the album cycle for Periphery II a proper send-off. With our good friends in The Contortionist, Intervals, and Toothgrinder, it is going to be a special swan song for the album.”
