Parkway Drive just refuse to slow down. Since recently returning from their sold out Decade of Horizons national tour, they've hit the studio and announced the release of their sixth studio album 'Reverence'. Due out May 4, Reverence conveys a more socially and venturous and emotionally intense effort from the Byron-Bay five-piece.
In late February the Byron metal heads released 'Wishing Wells' which saw the band take their music into yet another direction to their previous records including 2015's 'IRE'. Alongside the album announcement, the band released their second single 'The Void'. Full of crunchy guitars and Winston's distinct, gut-wrenching growls, this new single provides a fantastic taste of what the new album, produced by long term sound engineer George Hadjichristou, has to offer.
"Reverence represents the most honest and personal record we have ever created" says frontman Winston McCall. "It has been born through pain, sacrifice and conviction, with the ultimate goal of expanding not only what Parkway Drive stand for musically, but who we are as people. Thank you for listening."
Along with McCall, Parkway Drive features guitarists Luke Kilpatrick and Jeff Ling, bassist Jia O'Conner and drummer Ben Gordon. Formed in Byron Bay in 2002, the band has released five studio albums, all on Resist Records: 'Killing With a Smile' (2005), 'Horizons' (2007), 'Deep Blue' (2010). 'Atlas' (2012) and 'IRE' (2015). With all five albums having reached certified gold in Australia, Parkway Drive have also released two platinum-selling DVD's (2012's Home is For the Heartless and 2009's Parkway Drive: The DVD).
'Reverence' is out May 4 via Resist Records/ Cooking Vinyl Australia. In the meantime, check out the video for latest single 'The Void' below:
