Parkway Drive formed in 2003 in Australia and in these two decades we have witnessed a band that started from a home basement grow into a metal behemoth that has released seven studio albums (six of which have gone gold in their home country) and has played countless shows in every corner of the globe.
From the moment Brett Gurewitz (guitarist of Bad Religion) signed them to the legendary Epitaph Records, in 2006, Parkway Drive didn’t take long to establish themselves as one of the most important acts in the metalcore scene, with their third album “Deep Blue” (2010) receiving critical appraise and gaining a place among the best releases of 2010, according to the iconic Kerrang! Their next records “Atlas” (2012), “Ire” (2015) and, above all, the amazing ‘’Reverence’’ (2018), proved that the band does not intend to be limited to the confines of metalcore and that we are now talking about one of the top bands of modern metal. Songs like “Wild Eyes”, “Darker Still”, “Prey”, “Crushed”, “Glitch”, “Swing” and “Wishing Wells” are just a few examples of their original sound that has rightfully led them to the biggest music festivals in the world.
Every performance is fueled with adrenaline, an explosion of energy with furious riffs combined with melody and emotion. Following the release of “Darker Still” last September, Parkway Drive will embark on another massive world tour that will also bring them to Release Athens 2023, where we will have the opportunity to enjoy one of the best and most experienced bands in modern metal at the peak of their career.
