Periphery will be hitting the road for a rather sizable tour with Veil of Maya and Darkest Hour later this month and stretching well into December (tour dates after the jump). They also announced that they are working on a follow-up to their self-titled debut album, which was released earlier this year. Guitarist Misha Mansoor checked in with some thoughts:
“Hey everyone, it’s been an amazing whirlwind of a year for PERIPHERY and there are no signs of slowing down anytime soon. We are currently preparing for a long tour with Darkest Hour, Veil of Maya and Revocation, which is going to be a blast and we can’t wait to get back out there to play for everyone. Also, we encourage everyone to come and meet us at our merch booth after each and every show to come and hang with us. We love hearing feedback from our fans and getting a chance to meet new people.
“We also will have a fresh new, longer setlist with a BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW SONG and a few fun surprises just for this tour. We are also giving lessons on our respective instruments (a lot of days are already booked!), so please come out early to see us and jam with us. Contact us on myspace or facebook if you are interested in lessons.
The perpetually-hilarious members of Evergreen Terrace recently returned from touring in Australia with Casey Jones on the “Cheer Up Emu Kid” tour. In what has become an Evergreen Terrace tradition, a side-splitting tour wrap up video has been posted that highlights some of the more ridiculous moments of the tour. Among other things, they eat Kangaroo shit, almost get murdered and get their hands on some Horny Goat Weed – all that and more can be seen now on MetalBlade.tv HERE
Evergreen Terrace played SXSW in Austin, TX earlier this year and guitarist Josh James hosted a segment for Metal Blade TV that showcased a phenomenon unique to metal and hardcore: moshing. In this video, Josh James interviews and does play-by-play for some moshers and Dennis from Alesana unveils his new mosh move, “The Care Bear”. Check it out HERE
