Periphery unveil Bad Thing video

Periphery have launched a live video for their track The Bad Thing.

It’s taken from Juggernaut: Omega, the twin album of Juggernaut: Alpha, both of which were released in January.

Drummer Matt Halpern tells Billboard: “We thought a live performance was a great way to show in the intensity of the song, and show how it makes us feel onstage.”

He adds: “We hope to release more visual assets in the future that tell the Juggernaut story as a whole, rather than one song at a time.”

The band have refused to spell out the storyline for fans – but Halpern says of The Bad Thing: “It explains a pretty angry and aggressive part. The main character has come to some pretty deep realisations about his life, and he’s choosing to take a more active approach into solving his problems.”

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. He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
