Guitarist Mark Holcomb confirmed to Guitar World that Dream Theater’s John Petrucci, The Faceless’ Wes Hauch and The Aristocrats’ Guthrie Govan are the ones who will be making guest appearances on the album nor the ambit of Periphery.
“We also managed to get not one, but three of our favorite guitarists to do guest solos on the record. Wes Hauch (The Faceless), Guthrie Govan (The Aristocrats) and John Petrucci (Dream Theater) all laid down guest solos on the album and they turned out incredible… Can’t wait for you guys to hear it!”
Holcomb’s comment on the new album:
“The album is finally done and ready to go — July 3 is the date! After all the countless hours of work we’ve put in over the past seven months, we can honestly say the vision we had in mind for this record has been fulfilled — and then some! Every single member of this band stepped it up and, as a result, this album truly feels like a collaborative effort.”
