Washington D.C. metallers PERIPHERY has inked a deal with Sumerian Records. The band will return to the studio following the completion of the Thrash and Burn Tour (also featuring DEVILDRIVER, EMMURE, DESPISED ICON and VEIL OF MAYA) to resume recording its full-length album for an early 2010 release.
Commented the group: "We are extremely happy and proud to be members of the Sumerian family. Sumerian is one of the most progressive and forward-thinking labels in this ever-changing industry, and that is why we feel they are the best label for us."
Added Sumerian Records founder Ash Avildsen: "I love bands who take chances. I love bands who choose originality and musicianship over the 'safe bet' of a stagnant sound. PERIPHERY reminds me why we started Sumerian Records: to release and support music of cutting-edge artists that need to be heard for the sake and progression of heavy music. PERIPHERY executes combining heavy progressive metal with undeniable infectious melody in a way I haven't heard before. They take their songwriting and musicianship just as serious as we take our label and that is why we could not be more excited to officially have them now part of the Sumerian family."
