Periphery Halpern in horror short

Periphery drummer Matt Halpern has launched a short horror film entitled Polaroid - view it below.

He appears as the main character in the two-minute feature, which he co-created with band photographer Alex ‘Pressplay’ Wohleber.

Periphery’s Misha Mansoor scored the soundtrack – and headphones are recommended to enjoy the experience at its best.

Wohleber says: “It has always been a goal of mine to bring my horror ideas to life. To us, this is just a warm up, something we filmed in just a few hours to see if we could pull it off. We ended up having a great time, and we’re already working on the next one.”

The band return to the UK and Europe in November, supporting the release of twin albums Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega, which arrived in January.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
