Pro Tone Pedals has launched its new Mark Holcomb Limited Edition Signature Delay Pedal. The Periphery guitarist's signature pedal, the Haunted Delay, was designed to be an ambient-style delay like your favorite vintage tape echo, with gig-ready durability to last you decades without a $1,000 price tag.
“Before that, I played guitar a little bit, but it was mostly about playing drop-D power chords. Nothing serious. But the possibilities of what music could be expanded so much after I heard Scenes from a Memory. It was a mind fuck. I stopped playing drums and took guitar seriously. I sat down and learned as much of the solos and riffs on that album as I could. That’s how I started developing my chops.
"[This is] a gear demo I did last week for Positive Grid (makers of Bias and JamUp for iOS). I'm jamming through a couple of riffs using a custom amp in Bias and running through several features in JamUp. I also play through some new Periphery material."
Periphery's new music video for "Ragnarock" can be seen below. The video, which was shot during the 2013 edition of Summer Slaughter in the US, was directed by Jeff Holcomb. It's from the band's latest album, Periphery II: This Time It's Personal.
Periphery have announced a fall North American tour with Born of Osiris, Dead Letter Circus and Twelve Foot Ninja, dubbed “This Tour Is Personal.” You can check out all the confirmed dates — and a new video advancing the tour — below.
The tour, which is sponsored by Jackson Guitars, ToonTrack, Guitar World and All In Merch, kicks off October 11 in Baltimore and wraps up November 20 in New York City.
They started like most of us, playing power chords, Nirvana and Metallica. So how exactly did Ben Weinman of the Dillinger Escape Plan, Animals as Leaders’ Tosin Abasi and Periphery’s Misha Mansoor become such damned good guitarists?
