The Skinny: Australian metal masters, Parkway Drive are currently streaming their enthralling and highly anticipated fourth album, Atlas, set to be released via Epitaph Records on October 30th. Parkway Drive are poised for world domination as one of the most significant purveyors of heavy music on Earth. The band recently debuted a track for their insanely metallic anthem, “Old Ghost/New Regrets” last week and fans are invited to stream the entire album – hit play below!
Yet another creative leap forward for the chart-topping Australian band, Atlas boasts some of the most up front and confrontational material Parkway Drive has ever released, while at the same time taking several unexpected turns into lush sonic terrain, redefining their trademark sound while reinforcing their position as leaders in their field.
The new record is positioned to be the most highly anticipated heavy album of the year and follows 2010’s phenomenally successful Deep Blue, which debuted #39 in the US on the Billboard 200, #2 in Australia, as well as reaching solid Gold and winning the ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock and Metal Album and has since built steadfast momentum as a result of a groundswell of fan support in the US. Building on a record that was regarded as “not just a landmark album for themselves, [but] a milestone album for modern metal, ( Metal Hammer),” Atlas cements Parkway Drive as the world’s most hardcore musical superpower.
