Remember a few weeks ago when Periphery’s Mark Holcomb teased about a forthcoming Periphery project during our interview? Well here it is! Clear! Not quite an EP, not quite an album, every band member has written their own track, showcasing their individual writing styles and filtering it through the massive Periphery machine. Here’s what the band had to say about it (and a teaser video at the end):
“Clear is an experiment to explore all of the different writing styles in the band. It’s rare when you have a band where every member is capable of writing and producing music. With each member controlling their own track, this recording enabled us to go down any path we chose in terms of style and sound.
“Every track also contains a melodic theme established in Clear’s intro track “Overture” this common thread links all of the songs together, even though they all sound wildly different. Clear shouldn’t be confused with our new 3rd full-length album that we’re currently working on, nor should it be considered an EP as it rides somewhere in-between clocking in at 30 minutes. Enjoy!”
