Maryland’s Periphery, one of the most lauded acts from this year’s Soundwave, have announced that they will soon return to Australia for a tour with Animals as Leaders. Before they touchdown, our own Mike Hohnen caught up with vocalist Spencer Sotelo for the latest Music Feeds Podcast.
Spencer spoke to us from Poughkeepsie, New York, where Periphery are currently at the tail-end of their tour with Born of Osiris, Dead Letter Circus and Twelve Foot Ninja, dubbed ‘This Tour Is Personal’, with Spencer noting the larger turnout since their first headline tour two years ago.
Spencer also explained how the eclecticism of Periphery’s sound has helped cultivate a broad-minded audience, saying, “I think our fan base are a lot more open-minded than most metalheads in general, because I think we have a lot of different types of elements to our music.”
Speaking on the upcoming tour, Spencer professed a love for Soundwave and told us what the band have in store for Aussie fans this time: “We’re probably gonna try and pull together some songs that we haven’t been able to play live in Australia before, just to give the fans something more.”
Tickets for Peripher’s upcoming tour with Animals as leaders are on sale now, check below for details.
