Regarding the album title, the band posted the following on their FaceBook page: "Just to be clear to all our Peripherals, the album is officially called 'Periphery II: This Time It's Personal'. We decided to keep the cover title free, but in the booklet that is the official name. The forces that be felt that it would be iffy marketing it as that, so press releases and such won't reflect that..."
The band also plan to release a much heavier, concept album entitled "Juggernaut" later on this year.
Thanks to the band's official Sumerian Records and the band's official Facebook page for the information.
