Periphery have announced the release of their fifth album, Periphery IV: Hail Stan, on April 5 via their own 3DOT Recordings.
Yesterday, the album’s first single, “Blood Eagle,” was premiered on Sirius XM Liquid Metal. Said Periphery guitarist Mark Holcomb about the song: “We’ve known since the late stages of P4 writing sessions that ‘Blood Eagle’ would be the first song we released. It’s an unrelenting song that, even while we were writing it, we would say to ourselves: ‘We NEED to play this live.’ The original demo was vastly different, and through the songwriting process, it took on this kind of violent, explosive nature that is always hard to synthesize. That energy excited us and we knew it’d be the first thing we’d let you all hear.”
