Periphery ‘Frak’ Up Ear Drums in New York
In their first headlining trek, Periphery brought the ‘Frak the Gods Tour’ to New York City last night (Oct. 6). Support came from Stray From the Path, Textures, the Contortionist and the Binary Code.
Periphery took the stage and rocked New York’s Grammercy Theater. The group of humble Maryland boys had few roadies as they set up and tuned their own instruments while humorously interacting with fans.
They had amazing stage presence and it was evident that they were there to have fun, as fans smiled from ear to ear singing the lyrics to songs such as ‘Icarus Lives!,’ ‘Light,’ ‘Frak the Gods’ and much more.
Earlier this year, the band released the ‘Icarus EP’ which includes a few new songs and remixes of the fan favorite ‘Icarus Lives!’ They are also rumored to release two albums next year.
Support included an intense performance from New York natives Stray From the Path, who got some serious circle pits going as frontman Drew York came face to face with the crowd who sang their songs with much enthusiasm.
One of the most surprising sets came from Textures, a very talented band from the Netherlands, who brought an infectious energy to the entire night. The band released their fourth studio album, ‘Dualism’ via Nuclear Blast Records last month.
Opening acts included the Contortionist and New Jersey act the Binary Code. The ‘Frak the Gods’ tour wraps up tomorrow, Oct. 8, in Periphery’s hometown of Maryland.
