DC-based prog metal outfit, Periphery, are about to embark on the second leg of their North American tour (dates below) in support of the Juggernaut albums, and they’ve dropped a new for “The Bad Thing.” Check out the Jeff Holcomb-directed video in the player above and see the montage of live carnage that is a Periphery show.
Drummer Matt Halpern explained to Billboard:
We thought that a live performance for ‘The Bad Thing’ video was a great way to show the intensity of the song, and to show our direct expression of how it makes us feel on stage.
Periphery released Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega simultaneously in late January, via Sumerian Records, with the pair of releases landing at #22 and #25 on Billboard’s Top 200 (#15 and #16 on the Top Albums chart as well as #2 and #3 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart).
Periphery begins a new round of North American dates on April 25th, at Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, Florida. The band joins up with In Flames and All That Remains for a month of dates with stops at Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range, and Rocklahoma interwoven.
