Periphery Get Their Asses Kicked By Children In New Music Video
Keeping up with the tongue-in-cheek approach of their new album Periphery IV: HAIL STAN, progressive metal five-piece Periphery have released a bizarre new music video for CHVRCH BVRNER. The video, directed by Justin Reich (Black Label Society, 36 Crazyfists), is basically a heist movie on acid.
According to guitarist Jake Bowen, “Our video for CHVRCH BVRNER is a bit of a strange concept. It’s one where kids grow up too fast and the irresistible power of money converge. We teamed up with director Justin Reich to bring this bizarre reality to life and he did a fantastic job.”

Just recently, Kerrang! spoke to Jake about Periphery IV: HAIL STAN. When we asked him if there was any difficulty in writing songs that are a balance of beautiful and dark, he said, “We write in phases. When we were writing Blood Eagle, I think we were just kind of having fun with some heavy grooves. It’s actually a song that me and Mark wrote, and then Mischa came in and added his parts.
“We didn’t know that it was going to be that brutal,” he continued. “We had imagined that that’s the direction Spencer would go just because the attitude of the song lends itself perfectly to something like that, but we just didn’t know. So after hearing the song for the first time with the vocals, we decided that this was perfect for this song.”
