GetYourRockOut.com conducted an interview with guitarist Misha Mansoor of Maryland-based experimental, progressive metallers PERIPHERY at this year's Download festival, which was held June 8-10 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
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."
"Periphery II: This Time It's Personal" track listing:
02. Have A Blast (feat. Guthrie Govan)
03. Facepalm Mute
06. Luck As A Constant
08. The Gods Must Be Crazy!
09. Make Total Destroy
