Periphery have announced their return by releasing a video for their new single Blood Eagle and revealed details of their next studio album.
The follow-up to 2016’s Periphery III: Select Difficulty (opens in new tab) is titled Periphery IV: Hail Stan and it’s set to arrive on April 5 via their own 3DOT Recordings and Century Media Records.
Speaking about the album, guitarist and programmer Jake Bowen says: “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.”
Guitarist Mark Holcomb adds: “I think you can hear the adventurous intent behind much of this material as a result.
“We’re all the happiest we’ve ever been with a release, and it’s no coincidence. Can’t wait for you all to hear it.”
The Jeremy Danger and Travis Shinn-directed video for Blood Eagle can be found below, along with album details and a list of Periphery’s upcoming tour dates with Dance Gavin Dance.
