Periphery guitarist Jake Bowen recently sat down with some Web site called EspyRock.com and he revealed that the band is working on two albums, which is fucking phat. I’m tired of EPs. Just as I’m getting into them, they end. A d then they spend the rest of their lives on the backseat of my car.
The first album that’ll be released will be titled Juggernaut and will be a concept record.
“It’s a cool story and the way [guitarist Misha Mansoor] has it all mapped out and the way he is working with Spencer is just going to be really cool,” Bowen says. “It covers a lot of interesting topics and if anyone knows about the lyrical content of ‘Jetpacks Was Yes!‘ which was a song off our first album, then it has to do with that.”
The second album has no title yet, and will not be conceptual in nature.
“The real reason [we are releasing two albums] is simply we have so much material and we feel like if we don’t get all of this material which we are sitting on out, then eventually we are not going to care for it anymore,” he added. “We’re going to get tired of it and we don’t want that, we want to put it out and have it immortalized on a record then we can move on. We’re such prolific writers but it’s almost as curse as much as it is a blessing because we just constantly have so much material that we don’t know what we will do with it all.”
