Now that djent is no longer be the bone of contention in extreme music that it once was, progressive metallers Periphery are free to simply be a band having fun playing heavy music. In support of their tongue-in-cheek but hard-as-fuck new album Periphery IV: Hail Stan, the band is heading to Europe and the UK this fall, with metalgaze band Astronoid and prog act Plini in tow.
The tour doesn’t begin until November, so you have plenty of time to practice wiggling your fingers at Misha Mansoor before then. There will be four UK shows as part of the trek, with three in England and one in Scotland.

01 Cologne, GER – Essigfabrik
02 Hamburg, GER – Gruenspan
04 Munich, GER – Backstage Werk
