Parkway Drive have released a new single and video for ‘Prey’ today (April 24).
‘Prey’ precedes the Australian band’s upcoming sixth album ‘Reverence’, which is out May 4 on Epitaph.
The track follows ‘Wishing Wells’ and ‘The Void’ and features an epic performance video.
‘Reverence’ is the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Ire’, and the band describe it as some of their ‘most devastating songs yet’.
The new album was shaped by a number of tragedies experienced by band members in recent years, including the untimely death of two loved ones.
“We took stock of what we had and realised what actually mattered,” explains frontman Winston McCall in a press release.
“What we went through was horrendous. I hope ‘Reverence’ is the kind of album that redefines what people expect of us, in the sense that you can now expect the unexpected.
“This time around we’ve taken more risks, and I don’t think we’ve ever sounded more interesting.”
‘Reverence’ tracklisting below:
- Wishing Wells
- Absolute Power
- Cemetery Bloom
- The Void
- I Hope You Rot
- Shadow Boxing
- In Blood
- The Colour of Leaving
NME recently listed Parkway Drive as one of the bands shaping the future of heavy music, saying: “You’d be hard pressed to find a better representation of heavy music’s future glory”.
