PERIPHERY To Support DREAM THEATER
Maryland-based experimental, progressive metal six-piece PERIPHERY will support DREAM THEATER on the following dates:
Oct 15 – Palace Theater – Albany, NY
Oct 16 – Philadelphia, PA – Merriam Theatre
Commented PERIPHERY guitarist Misha Mansoor: “To say that the chance for PERIPHERY to open for DREAM THEATER is a dream come true would be a gross understatement. DREAM THEATER has been one of my favorite bands for about as long as I can remember. I started taking guitar seriously and bought my first seven-string because of John Petrucci. If it weren’t for DREAM THEATER, PERIPHERY simply would not exist. I can’t express in words just how excited we are for the opportunity to share the stage with them.”
PERIPHERY is currently taking part in the “Frak The Gods” headlining tour in with support from THE HUMAN ABSTRACT, TEXTURES and THE CONTORTIONIST.
PERIPHERY released a new EP, “Icarus Lives”, on April 19 via Sumerian Records. This CD features a brand new unreleased track, a series of remixes and video clips.
PERIPHERY‘s self-titled debut album sold around 4,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 128 on the Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
