Look no further, the biggest Metal tour of the year has just been announced. Australian legends Parkway Drive are hitting the road in support of their new album Reverence.
If that’s not enough to get you onto your feet, they’re bringing with them two amazing supports; American Metalcore giants Killswitch Engage and Aussie globetrotters Thy Are Is Murder. All three acts are set to converge at NEX on Saturday, October 27th.
This tour has been announced hot on the heels of Parkway Drive’s fifth studio album Reverence hitting #1 on the ARIA Charts. It’s the Byron Bay band’s fifth ARIA top ten debut and their second consecutive – placing them in esteemed company alongside some of the biggest Australian bands of all time
Reverence is Parkway Drive’s most sonically adventurous album and the most personal from the Byron Bay group. With its barrage of heart-shredding anthems, the album was closely informed by a series of tragedies the band had endured over the past few years, including the untimely loss of two loved ones.
Produced by longtime Parkway Drive sound engineer George Hadjichristou, Reverence arrives as the follow-up to 2015’s IRE. In addition to broadening the band’s sonic palette, Reverence offers up some of Parkway Drive’s most devastating songs yet.
It’s been a long time between drinks for Newcastle and Parkway Drive. The band used to regularly tear strips off the walls of NEX back when it was called Newcastle Panthers. Many fans will be welcoming the band’s return to the stage.
