Periphery is touring Europe through November 15 and is unfortunately down one member. Guitarist Mark Holcomb has exited the tour "to attend to a family matter back in the US" and will be absent for the foreseeable future. Holcomb will not be replaced and will be filled in presumably by a backing track.

“To our Netherlands and UK fans: We’re sorry to report that Mark had to leave the tour unexpectedly last evening after our show in Berlin to attend to a family matter back in the US. He will not be with us for at least the next few shows, and his availability for the remaining dates along this current tour is unknown at this time. We hope he can join us again as soon as possible.

We fully support Mark‘s decision to leave the tour, and our hearts are with him.

We have big shoes to fill without him, but the remaining shows will go on as planned. The band will be performing as a four-piece.

The German dates were an absolute blast! For those that have tickets to the remaining six shows, we can’t wait to see you and continue this amazing run!

Thanks for your incredible support. Without you, our fans, none of this would matter or be possible.”
