Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor sat with Linea Rock for lengthy interview during the band’s Feb. 21 stop in Italy. The Maryland-based band embarked on a month-long European tour, where they opened shows for progressive metal band Dream Theater.

During the interview, the Jackson artist was asked what it was like to open for the veteran prog rockers.

“We definitely have to be on our A-game at all times,” said Mansoor. “And we definitely have to put on a good show. If you don’t keep up with them, it’s going to be very, very apparent.”

Mansoor also talked about what it’s like to have three guitarists in the band, and also touched on the band’s new album, Periphery II: This Time It’s Personal.

Meanwhile, Mansoor will be featured on the April 2012 issue of Total Guitar, landing on the cover with Dream Theater’s John Petrucci.
