MUSIC NEWS: Parkway Drive's Biggest Show Yet Set To Stun Australia This September


 

Two decades ago, a band that would go on to pioneer and dominate the landscape of heavy music was born on the sunny shores of Byron Bay. Now in 2024, Australian metal titans PARKWAY DRIVE will triumphantly return to home soil this September to celebrate their 20th anniversary with their biggest headline tour to date, with the 20 Year Anniversary Tour set to ignite stadiums and arenas across the country, alongside very special guests I PREVAIL (USA), THE GHOST INSIDE (USA) and Void Of Vision.


A world-first experience and 20 unforgettable years in the making, Australia will play home in 2024 to PARKWAY DRIVE's brand new production; the band's biggest show they have ever produced fittingly set to christen in their own backyard as part of the 20 Year Anniversary Tour.


"Australia, it’s been a while. To be honest, it feels like forever. We didn’t plan it to be this way, but then again we didn’t plan on making it this far in the first place. So here it is, we’re finally back, with the biggest headlining tour we have done, anywhere, ever, full stop. A celebration of a 20 year journey, of the roads we have walked through, the generations, to the path we still define, our own. 20 years, through blood sweat and tears. Still Australian, still unbreakable. Australia, turn the fuck up and make us proud, this is one for the history books" - Winston McCall, Parkway Drive 

Wielding an incomparable legacy lined with boundless innovation, the juggernaut journey for PARKWAY DRIVE from teenage metal underdogs into becoming an unstoppable global force is one most could only dream of. With seven full-length albums in their wake, PARKWAY DRIVE have also scored three consecutive #1 releases on the ARIA Albums Chart courtesy of 2015's Ire, 2018's Reverence and, most recently, 2022's Darker Still. With six of their albums certified Gold in Australia and multiple ARIA wins under their belts, the five-piece have also garnered worldwide chart success, cementing their status as a festival-headlining behemoth alongside three documentaries, a live album, millions of streams and thousands of live performances.


Also armed with an unforgettable live prowess which has sold out arenas and stupefied festival crowds worldwide, PARKWAY DRIVE's formidable reputation in a live setting doesn't merely live up to the hype; it sets the hype on fire, literally. Transcending their metalcore foundations into another stratosphere, the spectacle of a PARKWAY DRIVE performance is one that stays with you well after the stage has emptied, with the band previously headlining the likes of Wacken, Good Things Festival in Australia and So What?! Festival amongst countless shows with some of the biggest names in metal, including Lamb Of God, Soulfly and Killswitch Engage.



Platinum-certified and twice Grammy-nominated Michigan rock powerhouse I PREVAIL will return down under this September to unleash their towering wares Australia-wide. An arena-level band, I PREVAIL have racked up billions of streams, close to 400 million views on YouTube, and toured the globe extensively. Catch I PREVAIL playing hits from across their entire catalogue this September.


Forming in California, THE GHOST INSIDE have survived and thrived against unimaginable odds since erupting onto the scene with their 2008 debut album Fury and the Fallen Ones. Blending the new wave of metalcore with driving punk hues, THE GHOST INSIDE cleave aggressive sounds with thoughtful thematics and melodics, and are set to release their sixth album Searching for Solace this April.


The Melbourne entity known as VOID OF VISION have solidified their standing as one of the most innovative and sonically explosive acts in the modern heavy scene for over a decade. From performing at Australia's first ever Knotfest in 2024 alongside Slipknot, Parkway Drive and Megadeth through to their most recent groundbreaking single Angel Of Darkness, VOID OF VISION ceaselessly astonish.
