Periphery release live video for “The Bad Thing”

Periphery have premiered a live music video for “The Bad Thing” over at Billboard. Footage from the Jeff Holcomb-directed clip is taken from the band’s Juggernaut Tour, which took place earlier this year. Drummer Matt Halpern said of the 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 on stage.”

The track is taken from the latter half of the band’s Juggernaut double-album, Juggernaut: Omega.

The D.C.-based outfit will be kicking off a second leg of North American dates, beginning with an appearance at this year’s Welcome To Rockville on April 25th.
