Commented the band: "We're super excited to be coming back to Europe for our fifth time! And this time we're going to be bringing along some new music that we've never been able to play overseas! We haven't been able to tour with Parkway Drive since our very first time in Europe in 2010 on the Never Say Die tour, so it's really exciting for us to be able to support them. We're also on the Vans Warped Tour right now in the States, and it's been amazing - I expect nothing less out of the Europe Vans Warped Tour!" More...
Parkway Drive has released a brand new video for "Wild Eyes," taken from "Atlas" album. Check out the clip below.
"This video basically continues on where 'Dark Days' left off," says drummer Ben Gordon who notes that both videos were the concept of director Aaron Hymes. "Dark Days' was commentary on present day and showed the worlds state of environmental Crisis. 'Wild Eyes' is set in the near future, after the World has been destroyed by man."
Gordon goes on to say, "the lyrical concept of 'Wild Eyes' deals with inevitable the end of the world and the impact of our actions so we ran with that idea pretty literally, taking inspiration from post apocalyptic images portrayed through films over the years. We are all stoked on this video!" More...

Parkway Drive has unleashed a brand new track from the soon to be released fourth album "Atlas," which is due out October 30th via Epitaph Records. The new track titled "Old Ghost / New Regrets" can be streamed through the player below.
"The album was written at a time the band was travelling very extensively which had a major effect on the lyrics," says front man Winston McCall. "While there is no overarching theme, the songs resonate with the travels we as a band have made, and the effects they have had. This has lead to some of the harshest, and also some of the most personal lyrical content that we've ever put to music. In every way, this record has been shaped by the experiences that shaped us a people."
McCall continues, "This record means the world to us. Never as a band, and as people, have we put more effort and thought into creating music. There is more of us in this record than anything before. The experiences that it took to create over the years were once in a lifetime. Ten years down the track, this is the Parkway you know, but we've decided to step it up." More...
Australia's Parkway Drive will release new album "Atlas" via Epitaph Records on October 30th, along with a deluxe package that includes the “Home Is For The Heartless" DVD, a unique travelogue that follows the band’s adventures touring to many obscure destinations including Colombia, China, and India. The announcement comes as the band unleashes a brand new video for the debut track “Dark Days” which can be found below. The following press release was issued about the album:
"Recorded in Los Angeles with esteemed producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed, etc.), the soon-to-be-released Atlas sets the standard in musical progression by pushing musical boundaries and drawing from a wider scope of influence. From heavy, technically advanced riffs and rapid fire blast beats, to haunting death growls combined with fervent vocals and symphonic melodies, Atlas’s ferocious mix of metal and hardcore reaches new horizons with songs such as 'Dark Days,' 'Old Ghost / New Regrets,' and 'The River,' all of which will have fans careening straight for the circle pit."
“Everything has been enhanced,” says Parkway Drive vocalist Winston McCall. “People don’t have to kiss the old parts goodbye. When you think of change, you think of things being taken away, but there’s not a case here where anything has been taken away. This is just more on top.” More...

Parkway Drive vocalist Winston McCall comments, “When we finished Deep Blue I was like, ‘I don’t know where we go from here?’ But if there was ever a way to step up from the last record, this is the way to do it. We’re expanding in every way we can. But at the same time – and I say this with every new record – it still sounds like Parkway.”
