Parkway Drive ‘Atlas’ Australian Tour December 2012

Written by Brayden Darke on August 16, 2012

Parkway Drive have announced a run of tour dates for this December on the back of their forthcoming new album Atlas. This will be their biggest tour to date, and will feature three other Aussie metalcore acts: I Killed The Prom Queen, Northlane and Survival. Kicking off in their home town of Byron Bay, we’ll see them visit most capital cities around the country.

Vocalist Winston McCall spoke about taking on the journey they face, saying: “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. 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.”

The band completed their new album at the beginning of the month, which was recorded in the Sunset Lodge Studios in LA, choosing Matt Hyde who has worked on previous projects such as Slayer, Sum 41, Alkaline Trio, Hatebreed and Children of Bodom to oversee their studio time. Atlas is expected to be released later this year, but currently have a doco out titled Home Is for the Heartless to tide over fans until then.

Tickets go on sale on the 22nd of August. All shows will be all ages.
