In a bit of a surprise, Periphery announced today that they have a new EP coming next month called Clear and it's not quite an EP, not quite a full-length, so what is it?
According to guitarist Jake Bowen:
"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!"
That sounds like a really fun idea for an album. The band posted the below teaser as well to give you a sense of what each song sounds like.
I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more soon. Are you guys pumped?
