Periphery Announce Juggernaut Double Album And Tour

Periphery have announced details of their new double album, ‘Juggernaut‘, which will consist of ‘Juggernaut: Alpha‘ and ‘Juggernaut: Omega‘ and is set to be released through Sumerian Records on January 27, 2015.

Periphery drummer, Matt Halpern explained the concept behind the album, saying;

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 ‘Juggernaut‘ is very detailed and dense in terms of character development, peaks and valleys, climaxes and resolutions we’ve divided the story and music in two, in the form of two separate albums.

Juggernaut: Alpha‘, the first part of the story, focuses on the back story and character development, while part two/album two, ‘Juggernaut: Omega‘, focuses on some pretty serious and gut-wrenching events, taking you for a thrill ride along the main character’s complex journey. Although the albums are split in two physically, the story is only complete when the albums are digested consecutively, allowing the listener to recognize and hear the lyrical and musical overlapping themes, foreshadowing, and connected ideas.

To coincide with the release of the new double album, Periphery are due to embark on a headlining tour in the U.S. with Nothing More, Wovenwar and Thank You Scientist, kicking off January 10, 2015 in Carrboro, N.C.

Vocalist Spencer Sotelo had the following to say about their latest tour;

We are ecstatic to be out of the studio and touring on ‘Juggernaut,’ “The band is planning on performing a good amount of tracks from that record on this tour and we are beyond excited to share this experience with all of our fans. It’s going to be a killer tour and we feel very strongly about the diverse line-up of bands that we were able to bring together for this.
