Australian metal juggernauts PARKWAY DRIVE — Winston McCall (vocals), Luke Kilpatrick (guitar), Jeff Ling (guitar), Jia O’Connor (bass), and Ben Gordon (drums) — are returning to the U.S. for a Fall 2023 headline tour. The band will also appear at several festivals, including Louder Than Life and Aftershock.
The “Monsters of Oz” tour, which follows Parkway Drive’s highly successful, sold-out Winter 2023 run, is special as it marks Parkway Drive’s 20th anniversary as a band.
The trek will feature an all-Aussie lineup, with The Amity Affliction as direct support. Northlane and Make Them Suffer round out the bill.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 21 at 10am local time. Get tickets here.
“20 years is a milestone in any career,” says McCall. “The journey that has lead us to this moment has been insane, to say the least. We wanted to mark this time with a tour that represents who we are and where we come from. For the first time on North American soil, we are bringing the fully-formed version of the Parkway Drive live experience, and if that wasn’t enough, we’re bringing an all-Australian lineup with us. No compromise, no surrender. This is who we are — The Monsters Of Oz. Come celebrate with us and burn it all away.”
As part of the anniversary celebration, Don’t Close Your Eyes will be available on vinyl for the first time ever. This expanded version of the band’s 2004 debut includes the original eight tracks, with the addition of bonus tracks included from their split album with I Killed The Prom Queen and compilation albums What We’ve Built andTrue Til Death, Volume 1. It will be available August 18. Pre-order it here.
Parkway Drive’s seventh album Darker Stillis out now via Epitaph Records. Listen here. Darker Still has been lauded by Forbes, Revolver, Loudwire, NME, and Kerrang!
