Australian metal juggernauts PARKWAY DRIVE have announce their seventh album, "Darker Still". The band's first full-length LP since 2018's "Reverence" will arrive on September 9 via Epitaph.
To understand that growth is to understand "Darker Still", both musically and thematically. Those who thought they had PARKWAY DRIVE figured out — the unrivaled energy, the high-octane breakdowns, McCall's trademark bark — need reconsider everything they know about Australia's masters of heavy. "Darker Still" stands as the culmination of a transformative time that has seen PARKWAY reach new heights of creativity and success by eschewing the restrictive, safe conventions of genre and abandoning their own self-imposed rules in favor of a wide-eyed appreciation of bold new horizons. "There are compositions and songs that we'd never attempted before — or, to be more accurate, which we have attempted in the past, but not had the courage, time or understanding to pull off," McCall reveals.
