Periphery just released a live video for “The Bad Thing” from Juggernaut: Omega, half of their double album effort along with Juggernaut: Alpha. This song made its online premiere in December of 2014, with the two discs coming out this past January.
Drummer Matt Halpern told Billboard about the latest video:
“We thought that a live performance for ‘The Bad Thing’ video was a great way to show the intensity of the song and to show our direct expression of how it makes us feel onstage. That being said, we hope to release more visual assets in the future that tell the Juggernaut story as a whole, rather than one song at a time.”
Back in December Halpern told Alternative Press that “The Bad Thing” was, “one of the first songs we wrote when we started working on Juggernaut, and it’s going to be a fun one to play live!” It seems he wasn’t lying.
The video, directed by former Periphery bassist Jeff Holcomb, was filmed throughout the band’s Juggernaut Tour earlier this year with Nothing More, Wovenwar, and Thank You Scientist.
Both Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega album combined to sell 35,000 copies in their first week of release. Periphery will be hitting the road later this month in support of In Flames, along with All That Remains.
