It’s been made known that progressive metal/djent forerunners Periphery have been working towards their sixth studio album – tentatively titled ‘Periphery IV’ – for a number of months now.
It’s also no secret that the band have stepped away from their long-time label partners Sumerian Records with the plan to release their new record and output from their other projects from their own label, 3DOT Recordings.
Well, it’s now been made official that the band are finally putting all of those writing sessions onto record and are now recording their new full-length album.

According to a report via Lambgoat, lead guitarist Misha Mansoor had this to say about the current status of the album.
“‘Periphery 4’ has actually been pretty much written for a while now. We are just spice racking and tweaking stuff before we record everything for real. It’s been nice to be able to really take our time with an album and absorb it before committing to it. I hope you guys enjoy it, but if you don’t, that’s totally fine. I’m super proud of it and so far it’s been an absolute blast to work on.”
The band’s forthcoming sixth album ‘Periphery IV’ (potentially stylised ‘Periphery 4’), and follow-up to 2016’s ‘Periphery III: Select Difficulty’, is expected to see a release next year through their own label, 3DOT Recordings.
