Periphery have released a stream of Alpha from their upcoming dual album release.
Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega launch on January 26 – a release Metal Hammer called an “era-defining milestone” in the latest issue of the magazine (opens in new tab).
Guitarist Jake Bowen says of the track: “I’m particularly proud of how this one turned out. I really enjoy songs that have an unconventional arrangement but still flow nicely, and I think that’s exactly why I like Alpha.
“It starts out more upbeat, then evolves into a darker mood towards the end, illustrating the Juggernaut story both musically and lyrically. Additionally, a few different themes and motifs appear in this song, acting as a nexus between the Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega albums.”
They’ll support Devin Townsend in March and headline London’s O2 Academy Islington on April 1.
