The band are thrilled to be invited to play with their heroes, stating; "We’re so excited that Dream Theater has chosen Periphery to open their European tour in 2012! This has been a dream come true for us because we've all been huge fans of Dream Theater since we were kids! Periphery received such a great reception on our last European tour that to come back with a larger than life band like Dream Theater is a tremendous honour and we're very excited to show Dream Theater fans what we're all about." Periphery’s self titled debut album is out now and can be picked up at www.play.com.
