Periphery Debut Trippy Video for ‘Alpha’
The double album opus 'Juggernaut: Alpha' and 'Juggernaut: Omega' from the djentlemen of Periphery has been released, and the band is now unveiling the video for the title track of 'Alpha.'
The albums are conceptual, as is the video. It's not clear exactly what the video signifies, but it involves a guy playing a video game and seemingly reliving and changing some past moments from his life. Other things happen like a car flying up into space.
In an interview with MTV Iggy, guitarist Misha Mansoor talked about the albums' concept, but did not reveal the exact meaning. “We worked very hard to get the concept to be very specific,” Mansoor says. “It’s all in the lyrics and the artwork, and it’s represented within the music. Because of that, we wanted to see how people react first — we didn’t want to just give it away."
Mansoor continues, "We will eventually reveal the concept, but I think it will be interesting to see as we have some very dedicated and intense fans. We know that some people are going to give it their best shot and discuss it, and for us that will be really fun to explore what they think.”
Periphery are currently in the midst of a North American tour. At the end of February they'll head to Russia and Europe before returning for several U.S. festivals in April and May. For all their dates, go here.
