Could this be the beginning of a long awaited solo project? Hopefully this doesn't harm the new album in any way.

When I sent this in I forgot to add that this will in no way affect their new CD/Tour

We're very saddened by this but wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. Fortunately this will not effect our upcoming touring plans as Nolly [Getgood from Red Seas Fire] from will be filling in on bass and Mark Holcomb will take up his position as full-time guitarist."

However this is how the end of most bands begin. They've gone through so many members its staggering. Pretty soon they'll be like Underoath, no original members. But Periphery is at their height, I'd hate to see them go.

Periphery will continue to exist as long as Misha/Bulb is in it.

Underoath still has Chris who's been in it for the long haul...
Now a band like Hopesfall is a different story.

Truth, although I'd be crushed if Halpern ever left.

Lame... I really enjoyed his Bass parts, and he was the only one that I was able to talk to at shows. I know this fan at least is sad to see him go...

this post is realllyyy late, murphy left the band over a week ago. but i don't see any chance of a solo project. Tom's parts were extremely underrated, and he played a significant role in periphery...

its a shame to see him go, but at the same time it seems like periphery's recent attention has made some of the members a little cocky...just putting my opinion out there !

From the gist of what he said, he was married awhile ago and wants to do the normal life thing, so probably not. And personally, Chris Barretto was always the best vocalist Periphery ever had. My friend actually was able to preview some of his songs for Periphery before he parted. To this day he still says they were unbelievable.
