Maryland-based experimental, progressive metallers PERIPHERY have released the following statement:
"It is with great regret that we must announce PERIPHERY's withdrawal from the rest of the Summer Slaughter tour. Due to a family emergency, we are unable to continue on to the West Coast. We also want to take this moment to thank all the amazing fans old and new who came out to support us on this awesome tour and we also want to thank all the bands we played with, CEREBRAL BORE, EXHUMED, GOATWHORE, JOB FOR A COWBOY, VEIL OF MAYA, THE FACELESS, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, and CANNIBAL CORPSE as well as all the amazing crew who made this tour happen. We miss all of you and we had the greatest summer ever hanging and jamming out with all of you."
PERIPHERY's sophomore album, "Periphery II: This Time It's Personal", sold nearly 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 44 on The Billboard 200 chart.
"Periphery II: This Time It's Personal" was released in North America on July 3 via Sumerian Records and will be made available in Europe on July 16 through Century Media Records. The CD features guest appearances by John Petrucci (DREAM THEATER), Guthrie Govan (THE ARISTOCRATS) and Wes Hauch (THE FACELESS).
