Australian prog metal group Periphery are gearing up for the release of their experimental E.P “Clear” next week, and have decided to stream the E.P in full online a few days ahead of the full release. This is one release where the music can definitely do the talking, so enjoy Clear in it’s entirety below:
Periphery’s guitarist Jake Bowen had this to say about their forthcoming release:
“Clear’ is an experiment to explore all of the different writing styles in the band. It’s rare when you have a band where every member is capable of writing and producing music. With each member controlling their own track, this recording enabled us to go down any path we chose in terms of style and sound. Every track also contains a melodic theme established in ‘Clear’’s intro track “Overture” this common thread links all of the songs together, even though they all sound wildly different. ‘Clear’ shouldn’t be confused with our new 3rd full-length album that we’re currently working on, nor should it be considered ‘just’ an EP as it rides somewhere in-between clocking in at 30 minutes. Enjoy!”
Clear is released on the 27th of January 2014 on Century Media Records in the UK and Europe, and on Sumerian Records in the US, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Despite the release of Clear, the band are continuing to work on their long awaited third full length album which many hope will see the light of day in 2014. Further updates from the Periphery camp will be available here as and when they are available.
