Australian titans and metal's most ambitious band, Parkway Drive, have announced that their highly anticipated fifth album, Ire, will be released September 25 on Epitaph. Parkway Drive has taken a stunning creative leap and produced what they consider to be a career-defining statement.
Parkway Drive has spent the past decade at the forefront of heavy music worldwide, and yet Ire is the sound of a band that continues to push their own limits. This is the kind of band that can sell-out stadiums and who have reached metal god-like status in their home country.
The 5-piece metal band from Byron Bay, Australia formed in 2002. Parkway Drive has released four studio albums all on Epitaph: Killing with a Smile (2005), Horizons (2007), Deep Blue (2010), and Atlas (2012). Their forthcoming album Ire will be released on September 25. Always hungry, always filled with ambition, Parkway Drive is embraced by heavy music enthusiasts worldwide as chronicled on their gold-selling DVD, Home is for the Heartless. When the band is not busy touring the world they spend their free time surfing international waters and now, skydiving.
Parkway Drive return to the UK in February for a four-date tour.
