If you’re reading this on the Internet (and why wouldn’t you), odds are you’ve heard of Periphery. The band, thanks to the almost relentless internet promotion and unheard of business savvy in this scene, has blown up to be one of America’s biggest metal exports.
However, the band itself has changed from the djent pioneering that they’re known for. The music is all the same (albeit progressing) but the band members are using the band as a springboard to do other things they’re interested in: one of them has a website where you can learn how to play from your favorite artists, another one is designing clothes through his platform Spacetime Fabric, and so on. Luckily, they all love doing this, and have secured yet another spot on the Summer Slaughter Tour, to the joy of all djent-lovers everywhere.
We spoke to Adam “Nolly” Getgood of Periphery about these other projects their a part of as well as the future of the band as a whole from this point. The interview is below. Their latest record is, Periphery II: This Time It’s Personal.
