That’s kind of cool.
Periphery — whose new album can be streamed in the video at the end of this post — have announced that longtime friend and contributor Adam “Nolly” Getgood (Red Seas Fire) has been promoted as a full-time member of the group.
Nolly will be taking care of bass duties live and in the studio, and additionally will be bringing his considerable guitar playing, production and songwriting abilities to the table. ”Nolly has been an honorary Periphery member for the last few years,” says the band’s Misha Mansoor. “He filled in on bass for us on our first real tour (Thrash and Burn 2009) and since then has always been there for us and has helped us out immensely. Given that we love him dearly as a friend and found that we have excellent chemistry both on stage and in the studio, and he is a master of all of his instruments, hiring him as our full-time bassist was the logical solution.
“His irreplaceable ability and insight brought so much to the production and bass on Periphery II: TTIP — we don’t feel that anyone else would be able to take on the roles he has filled. He has already been writing with us for new material, and we are proud to have him on board,” Misha added.
Nolly, for his part, said: “It’s absolutely amazing to be joining my friends in Periphery full-time! Having felt like part of the ‘family’ for quite some time this feels like an incredibly natural step. I’ve had the pleasure of watching them grow to their current stage and can’t wait to see where we can take the band together!”
