Periphery release Periphery V: Djent is Not a Genre, tour with Underoath

Periphery, the DC-born band, release their first album in four years with the self-deprecatingly titled Periphery V: Djent is Not a Genre arriving March 10 via the band’s own 3DOT Recordings. 

“We spent more time on Periphery V than any other release in our history,” explains Mark Holcomb. “We challenged and pushed ourselves harder, and along the way, we grew even closer as a band. We are so proud of the final results! I also wanted to mention how exceedingly grateful we are to our fans for being so patient in waiting for this record. We wanted to show our appreciation by giving you two songs today instead of one. We have a very busy 2023 and 2024 planned so we’ll see you on the road!”

Listen to “Zagreus” here. Watch the video for “Wildfire” below:

Misha Mansoor echoes Holcomb’s sentiment: “I’m really proud of the material, and it was certainly a labor of love and a tough album to make. The feeling that we were going to have to give up because it kept taking so long was so overwhelming at times, that to not just overcome it, but to feel so proud of this album has really galvanized us as a band in a way that I don’t think any other experience could have.”

The 9-song collection was once again produced by the band, with Adam “Nolly” Getgood contributing bass across the album, and also mixing the release. Jørgen Munkeby performs a saxophone solo on “Wildfire.” 

Periphery V: Djent is Not a Genre pre-orders are available here with the album available via several limited-edition vinyl variants, CD, cassette, and digitally .
