Parkway Drive Releases "Dark Days" Music Video, Reveals New Album Details

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.”

"Atlas is a culmination of ten years," continues McCall. "Ten years of Parkway Drive, ten years of travel, ten years of being alive and watching our world spiral out of control. We're not holding anything back, we're not pulling any punches, and this world deserves nothing less."

The album's track listing is:

1. Sparks - 2:18
2. Old Ghost / New Regrets - 2:50
3. Dream Run - 4:09
4. Wild Eyes - 4:19
5. Dark Days - 4:05
6. The River - 5:27
7. Swing - 3:32
8. The Slow Surrender - 4:14

10. Sleight of Hand - 4:27
11. Snake Oil and Holy Water- 2:49

Love Parkway Drive; there has been an abundance of metalcore/hardcore bands pop up in the last few years, but PWD are amongst just a few that really stand out from the crowd.

I also loved Deep Blue, thought it was their best album an quite an accomplishment. Will be tough for Atlas to top Deep Blue, but this is a good start!
