Parkway Drive Announce Australian Tour 2012

Byron Bay’s Parkway Drive will embark on their most ambitious Australian tour this December to coincide with the release of their hugely anticipated fourth album, Atlas.

Recorded in Los Angeles with esteemed producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed, Sum 41, Alkaline Trio, etc.), the soon-to-be-released Atlas is yet another leap forward for the chart-topping Australian group, whose previous effort, 2010’s Deep Blue, took out the ARIA award for Best Hard Rock and Metal release.

The new album’s heightened ambition has led to plans for a more elaborate live show. “Everything has been enhanced,” says vocalist Winston McCall. “For the past ten years we’ve played with a backdrop, and the whole experience has been us. We’re trying something this time, and hopefully it makes people feel something different as well. It’s definitely going to be entertaining. There won’t be any dead spots.”

December’s Atlas Australian Tour will boast an all Australian line-up, with support coming from three exciting local acts, I Killed The Prom Queen, Northlane and Survival.

“It’s the biggest tour we’ve ever done, and the fact that we’re keeping it all Australian means a lot to us and highlights how far the bands in this country have come,” says McCall.
