Listen to Parkway Drive’s new seven-minute epic ‘Darker Still’

It'll appear on the band's forthcoming seventh album of the same name

Parkway Drive have shared the title track from their forthcoming seventh album ‘Darker Still’ – listen below.

The Australian band are set to release the 11-song collection on September 9 via Epitaph, following up on their previous studio record ‘Reverence’ (2018). You can pre-order/pre-save it here.

Today (August 23), Parkway Drive have further previewed their next LP with the sprawling, almost-seven minute ‘Darker Still’. The single begins as an acoustic guitar-driven ballad, eventually transforming into a heavy, electrifying epic – complete with a dose of Winston McCall’s signature screams.

Until I die, until I die,” McCall repeatedly howls towards the end, with a group chant responding: “And the night grows darker still.”

“There are compositions and songs that we’d never attempted before – or, to be more accurate, which we have attempted in the past, but not had the courage, time or understanding to pull off.”

Guitarist Jeff Ling added: “I’m really proud of what we have achieved together, and feel that as musicians, we have really ascended to new realms of class and ability.”
