Parkway Drive - Darker Still

Parkway Drive - Darker Still


Australian metal juggernauts PARKWAY DRIVE — Winston McCall (vocals), Luke Kilpatrick (guitar), Jeff Ling (guitar), Jia O'Connor (bass), and Ben Gordon (drums) — announce their seventh album, Darker Still. The record, which is their first full-length since 2018's #1 album Reverence, arrives on September 9 via Parkway Records. 

Darker Still, McCall says, is the vision he and his bandmates have held in their mind's eye since a misfit group of friends first convened in their parents' basements and backyards in 2003. The journey to reach this moment has seen Parkway evolve from metal underdogs to festival-headlining behemoth, off the back of close to 20 gruelling years, six critically and commercially acclaimed studio albums (all achieving Gold sales status in Australia), three documentaries, one live album, and many, many thousands of shows. 

"When Parkway originally started out, we all were trying to push ourselves to do more than we possibly could," is how McCall explains it. "What you hear on Darker Still is the final fulfilment of our ability to learn and grow, catching up with the imagination that we have always had."

Emerging from the darkness of the past few years, this is the true face of Parkway —redefined and resolute, focused in mind and defiant in spirit.
