Australian metallers Parkway Drive have shared the video and title track from their new album ‘Darker Still’. The record, which is their first full-length since 2018’s Reverence, will be released on September 9th via Epitaph Records.
The track creeps to life with a whistle and an acoustic guitar. From here — for close to seven minutes — the band takes the listener on a Maiden-Esque journey through guitar solos, ethereal choirs and strings, and a surprising clean vocal performance from front-man Winston McCall.
Speaking about the track, McCall states:
Love. Time. Death. The great defining elements that make up our existence.
This song begins with the simplest of human sounds and represents these elements as the musical journey grows to reach its souring crescendo before facing the inevitable conclusion of its journey. The night grows dark… darker still.
Parkway Drive will be back in the UK later this year with support from Lorna Shore & While She Sleeps.
