Periphery Streaming New Song "The Scourge" From Upcoming Album "Juggernaut: Alpha"

Progressive metal band Periphery will release dual albums, "Juggernaut: Alpha" and "Juggernaut: Omega", in North America on January 27, 2015 via Sumerian Records and one day earlier internationally through Century Media Records.

States Periphery drummer Matt Halpern: "Given the nature and complexity of the "Juggernaut" story, we've actually done something different and exciting in regards to the release. "Juggernaut" is a story that is told through our music, and we want our audience to fully digest the whole experience. Because the album is very detailed and dense in terms of character development, peaks and valleys, climaxes and resolutions we've divided the story and music in 2, in the form of 2 separate albums. "Juggernaut: Alpha", the 1st part of the story, focuses on the back story and character development, while "Juggernaut: Omega", focuses on some pretty serious and gut-wrenching events, taking you for a thrill ride along the main character's complex journey."

Periphery founder and guitarist Misha Mansoor adds: "This is new ground and it's exciting. It's a way to shake things up. Everyone contributed to everything, even if it wasn't his instrument. It wasn’t about confrontation. Everyone was focused on creating a really cool album."

You can now stream the song "The Scourge", taken from "Juggernaut: Alpha" below.
