PERIPHERY: New Video Interview With MISHA MANSOOR

PERIPHERY's highly anticipated sophomore album, "Periphery II: This Time It's Personal", is scheduled for release in North America on July 3 via Sumerian Records and in Europe on July 16 through Century Media Records. The CD will feature guest appearances by John Petrucci (DREAM THEATER), Guthrie Govan (THE ARISTOCRATS) and Wes Hauch (THE FACELESS).

Commented PERIPHERY guitarist Misha Mansoor: "We put so much hard work and time into this album and we thank all of you for your continued support and patience. The album clocks in at sixty-nine minutes exactly and has tons of brand new material, so I assure you it is well worth the wait."
