Guitarist Mark Holcomb Joins Periphery

Periphery have announced that Mark Holcomb will be joining the band on guitar. Holcomb previously had a project with Misha Mansoor called Haunted Shores, and he also filled in on the group’s Frak the Gods tour earlier this fall.

In a press statement, Mansoor said, “We are happy to announce that Mark Holcomb (Haunted Shores) will be joining the Periphery ranks as a full-time guitarist! He toured with us [during] our headlining run of Australia, our Frak the Gods US headliner and our 2 shows opening for Dream Theater, and we feel that we have found a perfect fit for us both live and in the studio. We are extremely excited to have him on board, and can’t wait to show you all the cool new music we have been working on together!”

Periphery will be embarking on a European tour in early 2012 as the supporting act for Dream Theater.
