Before there was Periphery, guitarist and composer Misha Mansoor was posting an insane amount of material as Bulb. That material will finally see an official release this year as the following 10 albums (and on the following 10 dates):
- Archives: Volume 8 – June 12

- Archives: Volume 4 – August 21

- Archives: Volume 2 – September 18
- Archives: Volume 1 – October 2
- Electronic – October 16
Here's what Mansoor had to say about the releases.
"Diving back into the Bulb archives is something that I’ve wanted to do for years. As I began working on what will be a new Bulb album I was reminded of this vast library of unreleased music, music that has only been previously available by seeking out bits and pieces on various forums and media channels. Presenting it in a context that both echoes my original intent with the songs grouped from the time period they were recorded in as well as making it easier for fans to find and enjoy was the driving motivation behind completing this massive undertaking."
All 10 Bulb albums will be out via Periphery's own 3DOT Recordings.
