Periphery have announced details of a UK and European headline tour.

The band have lined up a total of 11 dates, kicking off with a performance at Cologne’s Essigfabrik on November 1 and bringing the curtain down with a set at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town on November 15.

The shows have been organised in support of Periphery’s new album Hail Stan, which launched earlier this month via 3DOT Recordings and Century Media Records.

Periphery will be supported on the tour by special guests Plini and Astronoid.

Speaking about the follow-up to 2016’s Select Difficulty, guitarist and programmer Jake Bowen said: “We finally spent a year on a record – we’ve never been able to do that. 

“The quality and pacing of the work shows we took our time with this one. That’s an important note about this. We really got to do everything we wanted to do in the space we had to do it.”
