"We're very pleased to announce that PERIPHERY is heading out with VEIL OF MAYA and COVET this September!" said guitar player Jake Bowen. "We've been fans and friends of these bands for a long time so it's a real treat for us to go out again together and play for you all. We'll also be playing a bunch of new material from 'Periphery IV: Hail Stan' and bringing back some oldies! WE'VE COME FOR TOUR!"

PERIPHERY is Jake Bowen (guitar, programming), Matt Halpern (drums), Mark Holcomb (guitar), Misha Mansoor (guitar, programming) and Spencer Sotelo (vocals).
"Periphery IV: Hail Stan" was released in April via the band's own 3DOT Recordings.
"Periphery IV: Hail Stan" marks two significant firsts for the band: the first PERIPHERY release on 3DOT Recordings, as well as a change in the way they approached writing and recording.
"We finally spent a year on a record," explained Bowen. "We've never been able to do that. The quality and pacing of the work show we took our time with this one. That's an important note about this. We really got to do everything we wanted to do in the space we had to do it." Mark added: "I think you can hear the adventurous intent behind much of this material as a result. We're all the happiest we've ever been with a release, and it's no coincidence."
"Periphery IV: Hail Stan" is the first release to follow the band's 2017 Grammy Award nomination in the "Best Metal Performance" category, for "Periphery III: Select Difficulty" album opener "The Price Is Wrong".
