Australian metal juggernauts PARKWAY DRIVE — Winston McCall (vocals), Luke Kilpatrick (guitar), Jeff Ling (guitar), Jia O’Connor (bass) and Ben Gordon (drums) — are returning to North America for a fall 2023 headline tour
The band are also set to appear at numerous festivals, including Louder Than Life and Aftershock.
The “Monsters Of Oz” tour, which follows PARKWAY DRIVE‘s highly successful, sold-out winter 2023 run, is special as it marks the group’s 20th anniversary as a band.
The trek will feature an all-Aussie lineup, with THE AMITY AFFLICTION as direct support. NORTHLANE and MAKE THEM SUFFER round out the bill.
General on-sale will be Friday, April 21 at 10 a.m. local time. Check out pre-sale ticketing info here.
“20 years is a milestone in any career,” says McCall. “The journey that has led us to this moment has been insane, to say the least. We wanted to mark this time with a tour that represents who we are and where we come from. For the first time on North American soil, we are bringing the fully formed version of the PARKWAY DRIVE live experience, and if that wasn’t enough, we’re bringing an all-Australian lineup with us. No compromise, no surrender. This is who we are — the ‘Monsters Of Oz’. Come celebrate with us and burn it all away.”
As part of the anniversary celebration, PARKWAY DRIVE‘s “Don’t Close Your Eyes” will be available on vinyl for the first time ever. This expanded version of the band’s 2004 debut includes the original eight tracks, with the addition of bonus tracks included from their split album with I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN and compilation albums “What We’ve Built” and “True Til Death, Volume 1”. It will be available August 18.
PARKWAY DRIVE‘s seventh album, “Darker Still”, is out now via Epitaph.
