Two weeks ago, Periphery not only let the release date to their new album slip, but also guest appearances (including Dream Theater’s John Petrucci, The Faceless’ Wes Hauch and The Aristocrats’ Guthrie Govan). And late last night, the djent metal group revealed more details regarding their sophomore album.
Simply titled Periphery II, Periphery officially revealed the cover artwork and track listing for their latest. In addition to that, the group also released a promo video for the album. The two-minute long clip features some sparse, moody electronics before guitars come in, and if it’s any indication of the rest of the album, we can’t wait for July 3. Check it out above, and make sure to catch them on the Summer Slaughter tour. The track listing of the album is after the jump, and track 3 shows that at least the band have a sense of humor about themselves and/or the djent genre they helped popularize.
