About this album

Periphery then entered the studio to work on their next two full-length releases to record reworked “Bulb” demos as well as completely new material written by the full band. The upcoming releases would also be the first to feature the use of string arrangements and orchestral elements. The album was to be produced by Misha and Adam “Nolly” Getgood (of British progressive metal band Red Seas Fire) and engineered and mixed by Taylor Larson (Sky Eats Airplane, Of Legends, Life on Repeat).

In July 2011, Mansoor elaborated on the forthcoming albums in Australian magazine Mixdown. He confirmed that there would be two albums recorded, and that one would be a concept album. Mansoor has had an interest in a concept album for quite some time, stating that ” wanted to get this concept album out there. It’s been an idea for years and years.” Mansoor also revealed that the band would release the albums separately, saying “‘ll probably do a staggered release, three to six months apart” and that ” really wants them to be these separate bodies of work, because they will sound different, and be completely different approaches, too.”

Periphery II was made available for streaming on YouTube on June 28, 2012. Hours later, the band announced that Adam “Nolly” Getgood had officially joined the band, his role in the band mostly being a bassist but also contributing to guitar parts in the studio (a role which he had already taken on during the recording of Periphery II), effectively making him the “multi-instrumentalist” of the band.
