Drummer Matt Halpern comments: "We are absolutely thrilled with the amount of positivity and excitement we're seeing and receiving for the Juggernaut releases. As a band and as individuals we poured our hearts and souls into these releases, so to have this type of response if truly special. Thank you to those who have taken part in the Juggernaut experience so far... We can't wait to play these songs live for you!"

Wes Richardson, who also collaborated with the band on the "Make Total Destroy" video, directed the clip.

The DC-based band began recording what would become "Juggernaut: Alpha" and "Juggernaut: Omega" in the early summer of 2014, with the band's own Adam "Nolly" Getgood serving as producer for the ambitious undertaking that was documented via a series of webisodes that you can find here: http://www.centurymedia.com/specials/juggernaut/
It is also available as "JuggerDoc" with the physical purchase of "Juggernaut: Omega" while "Juggernaut: Alpha" comes with a mini poster.

Once word of the dual, conceptual releases surfaced drummer Matt Halpern gave listeners insight into the themes behind the albums and the reason they are two distinct albums: "'Juggernaut' is a story that is told through our music, and we want our audience to fully digest the whole experience. Because 'Juggernaut' is very detailed and dense in terms of character development, peaks and valleys, climaxes and resolutions we've divided the story and music in two, in the form of two separate albums. 'Juggernaut: Alpha', the first part of the story, focuses on the back story and character development, while part two/album two, 'Juggernaut: Omega', focuses on some pretty serious and gut-wrenching events, taking you for a thrill ride along the main character's complex journey. Although the albums are split in two physically, the story is only complete when the albums are digested consecutively, allowing the listener to recognize and hear the lyrical and musical overlapping themes, foreshadowing, and connected ideas."

PERIPHERY is currently touring North America. Next on their agenda are Russia, a full European tour with Devin Townsend Project and Shining which leads to a PERIPHERY headlining show in London, UK, on April 1st.
