Krank’d Up fans are in for the experience of their lives with the announcement of highly acclaimed sonic innovators, Periphery as its 2016 headliner.
Smashing any preconceptions of progressive metal to bits across three albums and a handful of unconventional releases, Periphery needs no introduction. The band’s mind-bending instrumentation and diverse vocalizations will be vividly on display as they make their South African debut at this year’s Krank’d Up music festival in September.
The band has built a burgeoning fan base through hard touring, teaming up with the likes of Deftones, Dream Theater and Between The Buried And Me. They’ve appeared on many a festival stage including the Summer Slaughter Tour and will be playing at the upcoming Download Festival in the UK this year as well. Periphery fans can expect to have their minds blown yet again when the band releases it’s much anticipated album, Periphery III: Select Difficulty on the 22nd of July this year.
