The hardcore fellas from Byron Bay are coming home for a huge headline tour.
Parkway Drive have announced a run of shows across Australia’s capital cities with two very special international guests, Hatebreed and Every Time I Die.
Triple J announced that it’ll be the band’s first headlining shows on home turf since touring with Reverence in 2018. They played 86 headlining shows around the world to almost 230,000 fans. And, in between, made dozens of festival appearances along the way.
But the important thing is, the band is coming home and giving local fans the show of their lives in June 2020. Parkway Drive will be hitting up stadiums in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth on the Viva The Underdogs tour.
The tour was named in honour of their feature-length doco that’ll be coming out in January.
The documentary follows the group’s rise from metal band from (literally) the chillest place on Earth – Byron Bay (a fact that never fails to make me laugh) – to international metal superstardom.
Check out the trailer for that below, even I’ll admit, it looks hectic.
And if your little head-banging heart can’t wait for the concert, don’t worry, Viva The Underdogs will be landing in cinemas on 22 January.
BTw, if the concert footage from the doco is anything to go by, you can expect one hell of a show. Give me all the flames, a decade’s worth of Parkway Drive hits, and the wildest mosh you’ve ever seen. It’s a metal fan’s dream come true.
Tickets for the June 2020 Viva The Underdogs tour will go on sale next Wednesday (18 December). And if you want more info, you can get it at Parkway Drive’s website.
