Periphery to release ‘Periphery V: Djent Is Not a Genre’ on March 10, two singles available now

Periphery, the Washington, D.C.-born band that’s been twice nominated for Grammy Awards, will release its first album in four years, “Periphery V: Djent Is Not a Genre,” on March 10, 2023, via its own 3DOT Recordings.

“We spent more time on ‘Periphery V’ than any other release in our history,” guitarist Mark Holcomb said. “We challenged and pushed ourselves harder, and along the way we grew even closer as a band. We are so proud of the final results! I also wanted to mention how exceedingly grateful we are to our fans for being so patient in waiting for this record. We wanted to show our appreciation by giving you two songs today instead of one. We have a very busy 2023 and 2024 planned so we’ll see you on the road!”

Those singles are “Wildfire” and “Zagreus,” which can be heard below.


Guitarist Misha Mansoor echoed Holcomb’s sentiment. “I’m really proud of the material and it was certainly a labor of love and a tough album to make,” he said. “The feeling that we were going to have to give up because it kept taking so long was so overwhelming at times, that to not just overcome it, but to feel so proud of this album has really galvanized us as a band in a way that I don’t think any other experience could have.”

The nine-song collection was produced by the band, with Adam “Nolly” Getgood contributing bass across the album and mixing the release. Jørgen Munkeby performs a saxophone solo on “Wildfire.”

“Periphery V: Djent Is Not a Genre” pre-orders are available now (http://lnk.to/djentisnotagenre), with the album available via several limited-edition vinyl variants, CD, cassette and digitally.
