Parkway Drive 20th Anniversary US Tour with The Amity Affliction
Australian metal juggernauts Parkway Drive are returning to the US for a Fall 2023 headline tour. The band will also appear at several 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 Parkway Drive’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. Get tickets here.
“20 years is a milestone in any career,” says McCall. “The journey that has lead 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, 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 andTrue Til Death, Volume 1. It will be available August 18. Pre-order it here. Parkway Drive’s seventh album Darker Still is out now via Epitaph Records. Listen here.
