Periphery’s Jeff Holcomb put together a documentary video capturing his experience of this year’s Summer Slaughter Tour alongside bands such as Cannibal Corpse, The Faceless, and more. The documentary can be viewed in the vimeo player below.
Blow The Scene also put together a photo review or Summer Slaughter 2012 as it passed through Philadelphia. Be sure to scope that here if you missed it first time round.
In related news, Periphery drummer Matt Halpern dislocated his shoulder and will not be taking part in the upcoming European run with Between The Buried And Me. Periphery commented on the situation:
Bad news… Matt had an unfortunate accident yesterday and dislocated his shoulder! He’ll be ok, but he won’t be able to play for part of our current UK/European tour. Luckily, our good drummer friends, Mike Malyan of Monuments and Boris Le Gal of Chimp Spanner will be stepping up to fill Matt’s shoes for this run. Please send Matt your love, and expect him back behind the kit maybe even as soon as the end of this current tour! Thanks for understanding, and see you at the shows!”
Summer’s Laughter 2012 – A Tour Doc by Periphery’s Jeff Holcomb
“During the months of July and August of 2012, the Summer Slaughter Tour spanned North American continent, hitting 31 cities in five weeks, including two festivals in Canada. It was headlined by the legendary Cannibal Corpse and supported by heavy hitters in the progressive and death metal scenes. I was asked to fill-in on bass for the metal band Periphery, and brought my camera along for the ride. This film documents my experience sharing a bus with Periphery, The Faceless, and Veil of Maya.”
