Periphery Vocalist Speaks

2014-04-10 by Drubbi | 48 Comments
Periphery lead vocalist Spencer Sotelo today spoke out about his recent announcement of
recording a new EP with newly-revamped post-hardcore outfit From First To Last.

Here's what he had to say:

"There has been a lot of speculation regarding the recent announcement of my involvement with From First To Last. I would like to make it clear that I wanted to join them in
creating an EP for fun. I met the guys at Taylor Larson’s studio while recording personal music around the same time the band was in the studio. We got along really well and
decided it would be fun to work on something together, which lead to me doing vocals on their EP.

I’m really honored to work with From First To Last and be a part of this EP as something I’m doing on the side while Periphery is writing. However this, in no way, affects my
commitment and position in Periphery or any of our new material. Periphery has and will always be my main focus. I’m really excited to have this time and make music with Periphery
and From First To Last. Thanks to everyone who has showed me their support. Love you guys!
"

-Spencer

the density is over 9000 huh? sure makes sense.

anyway that means the other article on this site was untrue, I think it said Sotello was making both bands his main focus from now on

This headline is awful. It's akin to "man wakes up in morning", or "boy eats food".

Everybody hating on Periphery can fuck off. Whether or not you like the vocals, it's undeniable that he has a hell of a range and he can actually do all his shit live, and that's more than a lot of vocalists can say.

First sentence aside his post is right. Most people are too busy hating on Spencer to be bothered to look at any of his live material from the past year or so. He was hit and miss when he was newer to the band but his performances since P2 has come out have been pretty damn impressive, the guy rarely misses a note. Sure his voice isn't for everyone but he is a talented vocalist who gets way more shit than he should. But oh well, the internet.
