The Sludgelord News: PERIPHERY LAUNCH NEW SONG 'ALPHA'


PERIPHERY hailing from Washington, DC have just launched 'Alpha', the title track from the band’s forthcoming release 'Juggernaut: Alpha' which is simultaneously released with 'Juggernaut: Omega':

“’Alpha’ is the title track from the first ‘Juggernaut’ album and I’m particularly proud of how this one turned out,” explained guitar player Jake Bowen. “I really enjoy songs that have an unconventional arrangement but still flow nicely, and I think that's exactly why I like ‘Alpha’; it starts out more upbeat, then evolves into a darker mood towards the end, illustrating the ‘Juggernaut’ story both musically and lyrically. Additionally, a few different themes and motifs appear in this song, acting as a nexus between the ‘Juggernaut: Alpha’ and ‘Juggernaut: Omega’ albums. I hope you like this one as much as I do! Enjoy!"

'Juggernaut: Alpha' and 'Juggernaut: Omega' are out on the following dates via Century Media Records:
GERMANY / AUSTRIA / SWITZERLAND / FINLAND: Friday, January 23, 2015
