Australian metal juggernauts PARKWAY DRIVE — Winston McCall (vocals), Luke Kilpatrick (guitar), Jeff Ling (guitar), Jia O’Connor (bass), and Ben Gordon (drums) — are pleased to announce their seventh album, Darker Still. The record, which is the first full-length since their #1 Gold-certified album, Reverence (2018), arrives on September 9 via Parkway Records. Darker Still can be pre-ordered here.
Parkway Drive have also shared the masterfully cinematic video for “The Greatest Fear” which features the band’s galloping guitar work, moshy breakdowns, and guttural vocals amidst a stunning backdrop that will transport you elsewhere.
“The greatest fear, the one we all share; this song is about the unifying force we all must face —death,” says McCall. “The goal was to create a song that saw death not as something that separates, but something that connects us all on our paths. Musically, we wanted to create a song that did this concept justice. It’s heavy, it’s epic and when it stomps it leaves an impact.”
“The Greatest Fear” follows the release of the video for “Glitch” a frenetic exploration of the things our mind experience when we are not awake — but not yet asleep — such as night terrors and sleep paralysis.
