Periphery: supporting Devin Townsend Project and Meshuggah at Brixton Academy, London on March 3rd
After touring with Between The Buried And Me and The Safety Fire in the fall of last year PERIPHERY have been confirmed to open a very special show: On May 3rd, 2013 they will support a huge co-headline show of tech-metal behemoths Meshuggah and the mighty Devin Townsend Project with DTP closing the nights proceedings at the legendary Brixton Academy, London (UK).
Misha Mansoor (guitars PERIPHERY) about joining the billing: "Meshuggah and Devin Townsend Project are not only 2 bands that I love to death, but they are top notch bands that put on some of the best shows I have ever seen. PERIPHERY is honored and we consider ourselves incredibly lucky to be able to share the stage with them, and we know this is going to be an epic night to remember. So get your tickets while you still can. See you there!"
Devin Townsend had this to say about the not-to-be-missed show: "Well this is an intense turn of events... it's no secret how much love and respect I have for Meshuggah. They are an anomaly in life, let alone in music, as being a perfectly developed entity that only evolves as a result of there being nothing but honesty in their vision. If you have not experienced Meshuggah live, I truly believe you have not witnessed the elite that this genre has to offer, and to be playing alongside of them again is an honour that I don't take lightly.
PERIPHERY are a band and a musical entity as well in which I cannot say enough good things about. The potential that band of humans demonstrates together is truly unlimited, and they have a perspective on music that very few folks do, unlimited scope and astounding musicianship. Their new record is beautiful and the people in the band are a constant source of inspiration to me.
...To be allowed to participate in this bill is humbling beyond all explanation, and the Brixton Academy is a historic venue that has been on my 'bucket-list' to play. By being the best version of myself that I can be we hope to do this show the justice it deserves. An honour and a privilege. We hope to see you there, and the three bands will do you proud. Peace."
