The first half of Periphery’s Juggernaut double album up in full

Alright. Cards on the table time. Periphery have been teasing more than your fair share of new tracks from their forthcoming double album Juggernaut, but now it’s go time and you’d better be ready.

Hyperbole aside, now is your chance to hear about half of said double album. The Alpha half.

Yes, Juggernaut: Alpha – the ballsier, Periphery-er of the pair – is now streaming in full. Here you go, and don’t say we never do nuffing for you:

It’s only January but this is already one of the prog main events of the year. The band have upped their game once again – for me, frontman Spencer Sotelo in particular (the difference from devisive debut album Periphery is marked) – and it’s more than worth your time to give it a few spins.

We’ll have Juggernaut: Omega for you when it inevitably drops. Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega are out January 23rd in Australia through Roadrunner Records, January 26th in Europe/the UK through Century Media Records, and through Sumerian Records/Distort/TripleVision Entertainment in the USA, Canada and Japan on the 27th.

Periphery are currently touring North America with Nothing MoreWovenwar and Thank You Scientist (dates below) and will be following that with a European run with Devin Townsend, plus a special show in London next April with support from Xerath and Red Seas Fire.
