Our Friends


Having made their Northern Invasion debut on the festival’s 2016 2nd stage, Parkway Drive will be returning to this year’s line-up, this time presumably on the main stage!

Parkway Drive is an Australian metalcore band from Byron Bay, New South Wales, formed in 2003. As of 2015, Parkway Drive has released five full-length albums (Killing with a Smile, Horizons, Deep Blue, Atlas and Ire), one EP, two DVDs, a split album and one book, titled Ten Years of Parkway Drive. The band’s latest four albums have reached the top 10 of the Australian ARIA Charts, with Ire reaching number 1 in October 2015. They have sold over 235,000 records as of December 2017.”

The band’s genre has been described as metalcore. Their sound employs screaming vocals, guitar riffs and breakdowns. Unlike many other popular modern metalcore bands, Parkway Drive did not use clean singing on any of their studio albums until their most recent studio album Ire, although they did use them on some songs on their first two EPs, on which they were performed by the band’s original bassist Brett Versteeg. Parkway Drive’s vocalist, Winston McCall, has a younger brother who is a vocalist in the hardcore punk band 50 Lions.”
The band will be touring this spring in support of the May 4th release of their 6th full length studio album, Reverence.

In May 2017, the band announced that they were working on a new album. Vocalist Winston McCall said the album would be “more aggressive” than its predecessor Ire. The album is expected to be released sometime in 2018. On February 27, 2018, the band released Wishing Wells, which is the first single from their forthcoming sixth album. On March 13, 2018, the band announced that their sixth studio album entitled Reverence would be released on May 4, 2018. The second single entitled The Void was released along side this announcement.”
