Parkway Drive announce new UK tour

The Australian metalcore band return with new album, Reverence. Sign up to the fan club to get presale access.

New album Reverence is Parkway Drive’s sixth studio album – the follow up to 2015’s Ire, the band’s most successful album to date.

With Reverence, Parkway Drive not only explore a more adventurous sound – for opening track Wishing Wells, the recording studio was plunged into total darkness – they also offer up their most personal record to date.

Peppered by themes such as loss – the band have endured a series of tragedies during the album’s writing, including the untimely loss of two loved ones – Reverence explores how short and fragile life can be. So, while Ire brought Parkway Drive’s uncompromising artistry to bold new levels, Reverence pushes their creative ambition even further.

Parkway Drive have long been renowned for their unstoppable live performances and will now spend most of the coming year on the road, including huge festival shows before a their biggest US tour yet.

They’ll return to the UK in January and February 2019 for a string of new live dates, including shows in Manchester, Cardiff and a huge show at London’s Alexandra Palace.

Want to be there? You can! Simply get tickets here from 10:00 on Wednesday 13 June 2018 (Tickets limited to 4 per person).

Using heartbreak as the creative fuel for Reverence seems to have had a lasting impact on the band, too. “This time there are triumphs that come from swinging a sledgehammer and dealing with real raw emotion,” says frontman Winston McCall. “I hope Reverence is the kind of album that redefines what people expect of us, in the sense that you can now expect the unexpected. This time around we’ve taken more risks, and I don’t think we’ve ever sounded more interesting.”
