Parkway Drive Posts New Album Teaser

Australian metalcore act Parkway Drive is set to release their third album, "Deep Blue," on June 29th via Epitaph Records. "Deep Blue" was tracked and mixed in Los Angeles, CA by Joe Barresi (Queens Of The Stone Age, Bad Religion, Tool), and mastered by engineer Brian Gardner. A teaser trailer for the album can be viewed below

"It's basically about the search for truth in a world that seems to be devoid of that," says vocalist and lyricist Winston McCall, explaining the narrative running through the album. "The story is told through the eyes of a man who wakes up and realizes that his life is a lie and nothing he believes in is real. So he tries to find the truth within himself and his journey takes him to the bottom of the ocean and back again."

"It's definitely the Parkway record I'm most proud of," claims Winston. "We felt like were in the deep-end recording with someone new, so to have it come out exactly how we wanted it, and pretty much exceed our expectations, is a big ask, but that's exactly what Joe did for us."

Parkway Drive Finishes Recording New Album

Parkway Drive has completed recording their third studio album, which is scheduled for a mid year release. The follow-up to 2007’s "Horizons" was written in the band’s hometown of Byron Bay over the past six months and was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Bad Religion, Tool) throughout March and April. Check out a video of their time in the studio below.

Parkway Drive To Record Third Album

Australia’s Parkway Drive has announced plans to return to the studio to record their third studio album, which is expected to be released later this summer via Epitaph Records. The long-awaited follow-up to 2007’s breakout album "Horizons" was written in the band’s hometown of Byron Bay over the past six months and will be recorded in Los Angeles with producer Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Bad Religion) over the coming weeks.

“Writing with a concept in mind has given us more direction,” explains Parkway Drive frontman Winston McCall. “Every song on this album was created with a definite purpose, as opposed to just writing a riff and building on that.”

While McCall concedes the album’s basic narrative – the tale of a man lacking direction in life who goes looking for answers at the bottom of the sea – is “kind of bizarre,” he says the concept was flexible enough to open itself up to many far-reaching ideas.

“The ocean is where I find the most clarity,” says the former bodyboard champion. “To go to the beach and sink into the water, the sound cuts out and you can just forget about everything. So I guess the concept is about cutting out everything and focusing on what’s inside yourself.”

“This is the heaviest thing we’ve written, and at the same time the catchiest,” McCall warns. “And while we always want to keep the definitive Parkway Drive sound, there are a couple of things that will hopefully add another dimension to what we do.”

Having recorded their first two albums with Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage), the forthcoming album finds Parkway Drive turning to seasoned veteran Joe Barresi. Known for his work with big-league rock acts including Queens of the Stone Age, Bad Religion and Tool, Barresi will handle the recording and mix at his home studio, JHOC (Joe’s House of Compression) in Los Angeles, before renowned mastering engineer Brian Gardner (Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb of God, Nine Inch Nails) applies the finishing touches in Hollywood.

By that time Parkway Drive should be back on the road again. First stop is Europe and the UK throughout April and May, where they’ll play their biggest headlining dates so far, before they make their anticipated return to the US for this summer’s Vans Warped Tour.

Despised Icon Launches Weekly Studio Video Blog

Montreal extreme metallers, DESPISED ICON, have started work on their new album, due later this year via Century Media Records.

Vocalist Alex Erian comments, "We're done writing and the new shit is packed with brutality. Can't wait to play these songs live! As always, our longtime buddy Yannick St-Amand will produce the whole thing and we got Zeuss and Alan Douches to take care of the mixing and mastering, so the result should sound monstrous! Our boy Felix Rancourt, the evil mastermind behind all our imagery, promised us his sickest album artwork to date." More...
