Periphery – Periphery IV: HAIL STAN

It’s 2019, and Periphery are untethered by third-party oversight and have complete creative freedom.

Periphery Now In Studio!

Periphery’s self-titled debut record was hands-down my favorite record from last year. Since then, much has happened in the Periphery camp, losing guitarist Alex Bois and bassist Tom Murphy and gaining Haunted Shores’ Mark Holcomb and currently-temp bass player Adam “Nolly” Getgood of Red Seas Fire, both of whom will…
