Parkway Drive "Deep Blue" New Zealand Tour 2010

New Zealand be warned; Australia's biggest hardcore band is set to embark on their first New Zealand dates in 2 years this September. Byron Bay's Parkway Drive are scheduled to storm their way through New Zealand's live music arenas, conquering venues in the name of the Deep Blue New Zealand Tour.

This tour arrives hot on the heels of the band's third album titled "Deep Blue". The much anticipated follow-up to 2007’s Horizons, Deep Blue raises the bar in every conceivable way. While maintaining the band’s uncompromising metallic-hardcore style at its core, it pushes into exciting new realms, drawing from a wider scope of influence, incorporating everything from anthemic punk to bloodcurdling death metal.

With improved musical abilities and a thoroughly inspired approach to songwriting, Parkway Drive have tied the music and lyrics together into one all-encompassing concept. “It’s basically about the search for truth in a world that seems to be devoid of that,” says vocalist and lyricist Winston McCall, explaining the narrative running through Deep Blue. “The story is told through the eyes of a man who wakes up and realises that his life is a lie and nothing he believes in is real. So he tries to find the truth within himself and his journey takes him to the bottom of the ocean and back again.”

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.

Don't miss Parkway Drive and their special guests The Devil Wears Prada (USA) , The Ghost Inside (USA) and Antagonist, as their impressive wave of momentum hits your city.
