With trailblazing talent to boast and a supporting acclaim earned from a respectable work ethic, Periphery continue to reign in ways seen again by the newly announced, Periphery V: Djent Is Not A Genre. It all arrives on March 10th via the band's own 3DOT Recordings. The art of Travis Smith adorns this fifth full-length release, utilizing an array of violet hues amidst the symbolic three orbs to represent the towering musicianship that is on display here. Singles Wildfire & Zagreus lead the charge for what's expected to be another memorable tour cycle, both for the band and their fans.

Guitarist Mark Holcomb comments:

“We spent more time on Periphery V than any other release in our history. We challenged and pushed ourselves harder, and along the way we grew even closer as a band. We are so proud of the final results! I also wanted to mention how exceedingly grateful we are to our fans for being so patient in waiting for this record. We wanted to show our appreciation by giving you two songs today instead of one. We have a very busy 2023 and 2024 planned so we’ll see you on the road!”

Misha Mansoor adds:

“I'm really proud of the material and it was certainly a labor of love and a tough album to make. The feeling that we were going to have to give up because it kept taking so long was so overwhelming at times, that to not just overcome it, but to feel so proud of this album has really galvanized us as a band in a way that I don’t think any other experience could have.”
