Periphery Make Albums For Themselves: Periphery News


(Prog) Periphery say whether or not fans like their new music is "irrelevant." The progressive metal outfit, who released Periphery III: Select Difficulty last week, say they write music because they enjoy the collective creative process - and it doesn't matter whether other people like it or not.

In their documentary Remain Indoors: The Making Of Select Difficulty, singer Spencer Sotelo says: "I've never been cool with writing art with the mindset of pleasing someone else. That's not true art.

"It comes from your heart and soul and I think that's why people are drawn to it - it comes from within. You're not writing because you want to do something for somebody else. This record is for us - if people dig it, that's just the icing on the cake."

Guitarist Misha Mansoor adds: "I know this will come off as cold and I know that people have misinterpreted what I'm about to say, but I'm not really thinking about the fans. I don't think about what people want and I know no one else in the band is.

"I know the things that make us happy and it's the process of creating those moments where those sparks of an idea you have comes together. so you're like, 'Wow, that is just what i was expecting - or even cooler.' Those are the things we care about.

"I hope some people love it, but it's kind of irrelevant." Read more - here.
