Periphery / V: Djent is Not a Genre announced for March

Periphery will release their first album in four years, V: Djent is Not a Genre, on 10 March 2023 via their own label, 3DOT Recordings. The nine songs have again been produced by the band, with Adam “Nolly” Getgood contributing bass and mixing. Jørgen Munkeby performs a saxophone solo on Wildfire.

“We spent more time on Periphery V than any other release in our history,” 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.”

The two songs Holcomb was referring to are Wildfire and Zagreus. The video for Wildfire will be released at 7 PM GMT.

“I’m really proud of the material, and it was certainly a labour of love and a tough album to make,” Misha Mansoor 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.”
