    I SUPPPPPPPPPPPPPPOSE it would be cool for Mark to fill Alex's spot (at least for Australia and the headliner).

    Yep, my band will opening for it! If you haven't heard, The Brewery is being demolished on August 1st, so we're waiting to hear from the promoter where the show will be relocated to.

    I'm really bummed that I'll be missing Advent's final show, but I can't complain as this is a huge opportunity for my band. I'll at least see them in South Carolina the night before!

    Jan, now that I remember, does Justin still do management or any work with Periphery?

    That's awesome. I'll have to chek out your band, but it sucks that it's being demolished. I'd had no idea, but I'm a little ways from Raleigh haha. Hopefully it gets moved a little closer to me, although that's not likely.

    I am not Jan, but after hanging with Justin for a day last week, I'm pretty sure he's 100% occupied with his own band Vestascension! He had plenty of Periphery stories but I'm pretty sure he doesn't work with the band anymore.

    The Gosnellator? No. We have Alex Markides now who helps as the soundguy and in the future also as the tour manager. He's awesome. But we're all still good friends with Justin.

    Well, Mark will most likely also fill in on the US tour. We'll see. So Misha was telling the truth ;)

    42 for A und 54 for E in a string set that is mainly designed for guitars with 27" scale (or even longer)? People who want THAT much tension on their strings would never play a 74 at F#.

    I'm getting my hopes up for the other set though.

    Nice!! Hopefully there will be somewhat lighter gauges for Drop F# tuning :hbang:

    And sorry for spamming with questions, but for what scale length are those gauges best?
