Bad news to everyone on the tail-end of the Summer Slaughter Tour itinerary; Periphery have dropped off the tour. Here’s a statement from the band via Facebook:
Hello Peripherals and metal fans alike, it is with great regret that we must announce Periphery’s withdrawal from the rest of the Summer Slaughter tour, due to a family emergency we are unable to continue onto the west coast. We also want to take this moment to thank all the amazing fans old and new who came out to support us on this awesome tour and we also want to thank all the bands we played with, Cerebral Bore, Exhumed, Goatwhore, Job For A Cowboy, Veil of Maya, The Faceless, Between The Buried And Me, and Cannibal Corpse as well as all the amazing crew who made this tour happen – we miss all of you and we had the greatest summer ever hanging and jamming out with all of you. -P:.
The remaining dates are as follows:
8/20- Denver, CO @ Summit Music Hall
8/22- Seattle, WA @ The Showbox Sodo
8/23- Portland, OR @ Roseland Theater
8/24- San Francisco, CA @ The Fillmore
8/25- Anaheim, CA @ The Grove
Sorry if this negatively impacts your plans. Don’t worry though, Periphery usually tour extensively all year long anyway, so they’ll be back eventually!
