Periphery Post 3 Minutes of New Album
Periphery have posted a 3 minute preview from their "experimental" new album "Clear." You can listen to the preview in the player below.

"Clear" is a different kind of concept album, with only six tracks. Band members took the time to write one track each, and the final song combines them all into a dramatic overture. The idea for the experimental release came from Deftones guitarist Stephen Carpenter who suggested the idea when they toured together last year.

"It's rare when you have a band where every member is capable of writing and producing music," said guitarist Jake Bowen in December. "With each member controlling their own track, this recording enabled us to go down any path we chose in terms of style and sound."

The band are keen to point out that this shouldn't be confused with their third full-length album, nor should it be considered an EP. But that does rock journalists no good, so we'll be calling it their new album nonetheless. Hey, if you want to reinvent the wheel, give it a name!
