Periphery launch The Price Is Wrong

Periphery have streamed their track The Price Is Wrong from upcoming album Periphery III: Select Difficulty.

It’s set for launch on July 22 via Sumerian Records, and follows last year’s twin releases Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega.

Guitarist Jake Bowen says of the track: “It’s like handing somebody a grenade – it’s so in-your-face and brutal for us. It was a great way to start.”

Colleague Misha Mansoor adds: “Every one of our albums has a nice long intro, and we were like, ‘Let’s kick this off with a drum fill and a pissed-off riff.’ It’s something we haven’t done. It was fun.”

Periphery play this year’s Download festival at Donington next month, before they launch a North American tour in August – but bassist Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood won’t take part as he’s decided to end his touring career so he can concentrate on studio work. He remains a member of the band.
