Periphery recently announced that guitarist Alex Bois is no longer a member of the band. The group issued the following joint statement:
“We have some sad news to share. Alex Bois and Periphery have decided to part ways. This is truly a sad day for Periphery, because Alex has been with us since the beginning, and he is like a brother to us. We’re going to do everything we can to make the most out of this unfortunate situation, and soldier on like we always have in the past when faced with setbacks.
“In regards to all of our upcoming shows and tours, worry not! We will have special guest artists filling in for Alex, so our touring plans will not be changing whatsoever.
“Throughout all of this, we really appreciate your support and understanding.”
Periphery will be hitting the road this fall with The Human Abstract, Textures, and The Contortionist. Head here for the dates.
