Periphery Announced As Support For The Dillinger Escape Plan

With a hellacious Buzz, Washington D.C’s Periphery have stormed on to the world metal scene; combining the complex atypical rhythms and technical precision of math rock with the sensational brutality of progressive metal.

On the eve of releasing their brilliant new self titled album and hot off touring with Lamb Of God and Fear Factory, Periphery will be joining the already thundering bill of The Dillinger Escape Plan and Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster.

From the press release:

The Dillinger Escape Plan have merely one prerogative: to go forward in ALL directions simultaneously.

Following on from their groundbreaking 1999 debut full-length, ‘Calculating Infinity’ and the near-perfect pileup of craft and chaos on 2007’s “Ire Works”, The Dillinger Escape Plan have unveiled their latest masterpiece, ‘Option Paralysis’. It features all their trademark furious breaks and asymmetric rhythmical patterns, but surprises us throughout with tasteful yet haunting melody. The Dillinger Escape Plan boldly go where no band dared to go before and they have emerged with a new vision which will take them to new dimensions. ‘Option Paralysis’ “is a work of art, but don’t think for a second they’ve gone soft on us.” – Sputnik Music

Blurring the fine line between swampy Southern rock and metal, Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster will be joining this brutal double bill. They create a sound that’ll have you knocking back some moonshine with your metal horns in the air. Like a pump action shotgun aimed at your skull firing off round after round without any remorse “Maylene and The Sons of Disaster are the soundtrack to your next barfight”. – Absolute Punk

For years, The Dillinger Escape Plan have been the metal standard-bearers of dizzying, time-signature torture and they will be bringing their ferocious live show along with Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster and Periphery to Australian fans throughout May.
