Yesterday, the web went abuzz with Revolver Magazine’s advertisement for Periphery’s sophomore album giving the release date before any official announcement was made. Since the cat’s out of the bag, the band confirmed the news via Guitar World with some additional news:
Holcomb also confirmed Petrucci’s appearance, as well as adding two more names to the list of guest contributors. “We also managed to get not one, but three of our favorite guitarists to do guest solos on the record,” he said. “Wes Hauch (The Faceless), Guthrie Govan (The Aristocrats) and John Petrucci (Dream Theater) all laid down guest solos on the album and they turned out incredible.”
Neat! Expect more information to come out in the coming weeks. Periphery’s sophomore album will be out July 3rd on Sumerian Records.
