Progressive metal act Periphery are in a recording studio somewhere.

No, they are not in the studio for a tour. They are there to work on their “eagerly anticipated” sophomore full-length release, which a press release claims “will undoubtedly prove that they are truly one of the genre’s most innovative and prolific artists.”

Periphery enters the studio today to begin tracking the aforementioned new effort, and they will be visually documenting the entire process to give everyone an inside look into their recording process.

Keep an eye on their Facebook page for additional information on all that funny business.

“We’ve got a ton of new songs ready that we can’t wait for you guys to hear,” says guitarist Jake Bowen. “We’ll spend the winter in the studio with Taylor Larson (our good friend Nolly Getgood is co-producing with Misha Mansoor).

“We’ve decided to go a new direction with our music and we’re calling this new genre DjentSlam,” the band says. “JUST KIDDING! Get stoked!”

Periphery recently had their bassist quit, so, I am not sure how they’re going to record the bass lines. Maybe Misha will handle it until they find a new bassist.
