Periphery have prepared a new release for next year called Clear. They are calling it their "new experimental recording" which represents the sum total of Periphery's achievements. Century Media Records has licensed Periphery's Clear for the world outside of North America, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. It will be out on January 27th, 2014 as a limited edition jewelcase and digital EP. Hear the first new sounds below. This is not the new album yet which the band is working on.
Sumerian Records will release Clear on January 28th in North America.
Jake Bowen (guitars) states: "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 'just' an EP as it rides somewhere in-between clocking in at 30 minutes. Enjoy!"
