Progressive metal masters Periphery have announced the release of two albums to be released on January 26th 2015. Titled Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega, the albums will be released separately, but are part of the same concept.

Drummer Matt Halpern has explained the decision in more detail: “Given the nature and complexity of the Juggernaut story, we’ve actually done something different and exciting in regards to the release. Juggernaut is a story that is told through our music, and we want our audience to fully digest the whole experience. Because Juggernaut is very detailed and dense in terms of character development, peaks and valleys, climaxes and resolutions we’ve divided the story and music in two, in the form of two separate albums. Juggernaut: Alpha, the first part of the story, focuses on the back story and character development, while part two/album two, Juggernaut: Omega, focuses on some pretty serious and gut-wrenching events, taking you for a thrill ride along the main character’s complex journey. Although the albums are split in two physically, the story is only complete when the albums are digested consecutively, allowing the listener to recognize and hear the lyrical and musical overlapping themes, foreshadowing, and connected ideas.”

The band have also announced a tour to follow the release of the albums. You can find a full list of dates below.
