PERIPHERY Make It Official With Third Guitarist

This is great news for Periphery and guitarist Mark Holcomb. Holcomb, who also plays guitar for Haunted Shores, is now officially the band's third guitarist, a spot that was left open by departing guitarist Alex Bois earlier this year. Holcomb has been on the road with the band the last few months, most recently on the Frak The Gods tour. I'm sure everybody got along so well that they decided to make it official. Here are official statements from Misha and Mark:

Misha writes:

“We are happy to announce that Mark Holcomb will be joining the Periphery ranks as a full-time guitarist,” says the band’s Misha Mansoor. “He toured with with us [on] our headlining run of Australia, our Frak The Gods U.S. headliner and our two shows opening for Dream Theater, and we feel that we have found a perfect fit for us both live and in the studio. We are extremely excited to have him on board, and can’t wait to show you all the cool new music we have been working on together. Since we made arrangements for the tour before Mark was inducted, our good friend Nolly (Red Seas Fire) will be filling in on the European tour opening for Dream Theater. However, that will be the last tour we do with a fill-in guitarist, as Mark will join on full-time after that!”

Mark, obviously pumped, had this to say:

“I couldn’t be more excited as not only have these guys been great friends of mine for a long time, but I consider every last one of them musical siblings in a sense. Each of us brings something different to the table and I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish.”
