I’m a pretty big fan of Periphery. In terms of them being accessible without being another generic groove metal or metalcore band from the American Midwest or South and complicated without being a super-niche prog-nerd festival (while still being prog-nerdy). They’re the band I gush over with love that exists 4th to Slayer. (I DON’T CARE, SLAYER IS AWESOME. RIP JEFF HANNEMAN)
So to have them announce a new EP to tide “peripherals” over before their 3rd album, Juggernaut, is definitely a treat. According to guitarist Jake Bowen:
“Clear is an experiment to explore all of the different writing styles in the band. It’s rare when you have a band where every member is capable of writing and producing music. With each member controlling their own track, this recording enabled us to go down any path we chose in terms of style and sound.
“Every track also contains a melodic theme established in Clear’s intro track “Overture” this common thread links all of the songs together, even though they all sound wildly different. Clear shouldn’t be confused with our new 3rd full-length album that we’re currently working on, nor should it be considered an EP as it rides somewhere in-between clocking in at 30 minutes. Enjoy!”
Below is a video presenting snippets of the upcoming EP due January 28th in the US. What do you think? Tell us below!
