REVIEW: Parkway Drive – ‘Ire’

Artist: Parkway Drive
Album: Ire
Label: Epitaph

There is still hope for (hard) rock and roll.

Parkway Drive have long proven themselves to be an international force for the continued betterment of the hard rock and metal music scenes. Having first risen through the ranks of their native Australia, the five-piece quickly earned a global following with their unique brand of unabashed brutality, with vocalist Winston McCall pouring his life through the microphone. The band’s storytelling evolved as their sound matured, but by 2012’s Atlas the band had reached something of a plateau. The anthems of brotherhood and self-improvement were …


Parkway Drive Release “Bottom Feeder”

Parkway Drive have offered up another new single off their fifth full-length studio album, Ire, which is set to arrive on September 25 through Epitaph Records.

Titled “Bottom Feeder,” the Aussie outfit’s newest bone-crusher falls perfectly in line with their latest batch of releases, boasting more mainstream nuance than the group’s previous body of work. Still, the five-piece have in no way abandoned their metalcore roots, as there are certainly more than enough chugs and growls to appease longtime fans. Give it a listen after the break, and share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.

Parkway Drive Debut Evolved Sound On “Crushed”

Parkway Drive have shared the second single off their upcoming fifth studio album.

Arriving complete with music video accompaniment, just like the band’s last single, “Crushed” premiered online Monday afternoon following a Sunday night premiere on the Triple J radio show. The song showcases an evolved sound for the band, which finds the aggression of their earlier work met with an ever-so-slight alternative edge. It’s not quite mainstream metal, but it does have broad(er) appeal.

The video for “Crushed” finds the members of Parkway Drive falling prey to the torture of the gods. Trapped in a cage that helps …


Parkway Drive Is (Still) The Best Heavy Band In Music Today

Anytime Parkway Drive decide to treat the world to new music is cause for celebration as far as we are concerned, and their latest single is no exception.

Released this morning, June 9, “Vice Grip” reintroduces the world to Parkway Drive’s unique take on hard rock with huge riffs and an even larger hook. It’s the most straightforward rock song the band has ever shared, so much that it feels destined for radio play but it’s undeniably born from the same minds and influences that birthed the group’s heaviest material. Think of it as post-modern hard rock with a metal …


UTG PHOTOS: Warped Tour Detroit (7/19/14)

Under The Gun’s Head of Photography, Corbin Alvae, attended the Vans Warped Tour on July 19, 2014 in Auburn Hills, MI.

Well, it’s Summer and that only could mean one thing. Actually, it means a lot of things, but one of the most important aspects is one of our favorite tours traveling across the U.S. and Canada. To photograph the Vans Warped Tour this year, I stopped over at one of my favorite places to shoot at, called The Palace of Auburn Hills, where a couple of my recent photo sets were as well (e.g. Demi Lovato, Paramore, and Fall …

UTG PHOTOS: Vans Warped Tour – Long Island, NY (7/12/14)

Under The Gun sent guest photographer, Jenn Curtis, to Jones Beach in Wantagh, NY to photograph the Vans Warped Tour on July 12, 2014.

The Vans Warped Tour hit Long Island last weekend at a new venue but as the same action packed tour we’ve grown to love. Fans of all ages lined the parking lot of Jones Beach anxiously awaiting the long day of music consumption. Of course the lineup featured some huge headlining names such as Mayday Parade, Of Mice and Men, Bayside and Less Than Jake, but there was also a plethora of fantastic bands of all …

Parkway Drive Tease “Wild Eyes” Video

Australian metalcore outfit Parkway Drive have released a teaser for their “Wild Eyes” music video.

Keeping things short and sweet, our first glimpse at the official “Wild Eyes” video lets us know things are going to be wild and dirty. Not in the offensive way, but literally filthy, with the band and what looks to be a ragtag group of diehard fans throwing down in some kind of abandoned barn. Knowing Parkway’s creativity, there is likely much more to the clip than jump a performance piece, so we’ll have to keep our eyes peeled for details on the plot. For …
