Periphery, who are about to embark on the second leg of their North American tour dates in support of the Juggernaut albums, premiered “The Bad Thing” via Billboard.

Jeff Holcomb directed the clip, which features a montage of live footage from the DC-based prog-metal outfit’s early 2015 tour.  Drummer Matt Halpern explained to Billboard, “We thought that a live performance for ‘The Bad Thing’ video was a great way to show the intensity of the song, and to show our direct expression of how it makes us feel on stage.

Periphery released Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega simultaneously in late January via Sumerian Records, with the pair of releases landing at #22 and #25 on Billboard’s Top 200 (#15 and #16 on the Top Albums chart as well as #2 and #3 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart).

The band was on recent covers of Revolver and Outburn, who said, “Juggernaut… will most likely change the face of modern progressive metal as we know it.”  Metal Sucks called the releases “full-fledged masterpieces” and Rolling Stone dubbed the albums “the group’s most ambitious project yet,” saying it “features some of the band’s most accessible music.”

Periphery begins a new round of North American dates on April 25 at Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, Fla.  The band joins up with In Flames and All That Remains for a month of dates with stops at Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range and Rocklahoma interwoven.
