[event] Parkway Drive (US) live in Singapore // 14th Dec 2011 @ *Scape Warehouse

Blasting out of Byron, almost as an affront to the serenity of their surrounds, PARKWAY DRIVE quickly established themselves as the most formidable force Australian heavy hardcore had ever seen. A five-piece of awesome power and charisma, they caused a storm in their homeland that is quite literally without precedent, charting in the national Top 40 with their utterly brutal 2005 full-length debut “Killing With A Smile”.

Having recorded their first two albums with Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage, Deep Blue was tracked and mixed in Los Angeles, CA by Joe Barresi (Queens Of The Stone Age, Bad Religion, Tool), and mastered by legendary mastering engineer Brian Gardner.

Crisp, unprocessed and impossibly heavy, the production on Deep Blue brings out every nuance of Parkway Drive ‘s freshly re-focused sound.

With 13 tracks in all, standouts include “Sleepwalker”, “Deliver Me” and “Unrest”. Bad Religion guitarist and Epitaph owner Brett Gurewitz makes a guest vocal appearance on “Home is for the Heartless”, which brings epic punk rock choruses and crazed metallic finger-tapping guitarwork into the established Parkway paradigm.

One of the most anticipated heavy releases of the 2010, Deep Blue charted at # 2 on the ARIA chart and #39 on the US Billboard 200, #1 on the ARIA Australian Artist chart and # 1 on the Independent chart. In October it won the Best Hard Rock / Punk album at the Australian Independent Music Awards, was presented the inaugural ARIA for Best Hard Rock / Heavy Metal Album and was voted the number 1 metal album of 2010 in UK’s Classic Rock Magazine. More recently Deep Blue achieved gold sales status, this being the bands first gold album.
