Periphery have named their new guitarist and announced winter tour dates including a run with Dream Theater.

Periphery will be touring as direct support to the legendary Dream Theater throughout Europe from Jan. 23rd through Feb. 26th. They will play two headlining shows amidst those dates. Brussels, Belgium, and Prague, Czech Republic, have been added to the band's schedule.

The band has also recruited guitarist Mark Holcomb to their lineup. (He had a project with Misha Mansoor called Haunted Shores and filled in on the "Frak The Gods" tour).

Misha Mansoor states: "We are happy to announce that Mark Holcomb (Haunted Shores) will be joining the Periphery ranks as a full time guitarist! He toured with with us 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 cant wait to show you all the cool new music we have been working on together! Since we made arrangements for the tour before Mark was inducted, our good friend Nolly (Red Seas Fire) will be filling in on the European tour opening for Dream Theater. However that will be the last tour we do with a fill-in guitarist, as Mark will join on full time after that!"

Thomas Murphy (bass) states: "The most important thing about a band is the chemistry between its members. We've all known Mark for years and are very proud to announce him as our newest member. Not only is he an amazing writer and guitarist, but also an amazing person. We can't wait to see what the future holds for the band now that he has joined."
Mark Holcomb further comments: "I couldn't be more excited as not only have these guys been great friends of mine for a long time, but I consider every last one of them musical siblings in a sense. Each of us brings something different to the table and I can't wait to see what we can accomplish."
