Parkway Drive
Parkway Drive
Byron Bay's brightest, Parkway Drive, is now an international force, seizing the worldwide crown through sheer determination, force of will and undeniable musicality. It's all courtesy of pulverizing but unforgettably catchy riffs, vocals that connect on levels that are at once urgent and visceral and a groundswell of support with fans and press that stretches across several continents. Whether headlining throughout the world or stealing the show at festivals ranging from Download to Sonisphere, Parkway Drive has earned a reputation as one of the most vitally important bands of the modern metal age.

New Musical Express, Alternative Press, Metal Hammer and countless other publications have recognized what the worldwide underground has long known: Parkway Drive has perfected the special blend of heavy histrionics and crowd-participation-inducing connectivity so many bands aspire toward yet too few achieve.

The band's fourth album, Atlas, may conjure the image of the classic muscle-bound man of the same name balancing the weight of the Earth on his shoulders... But Parkway Drive has the world in their palm.

Killing with a Smile grabbed the attention of the group's peers in North America and Europe in 2005 even as it catapulted Parkway Drive to be the standard bearers of Metalcore in their native Australia. By the time Horizons arrived two years later, Parkway had gone from being a "band's band" outside their home territory to a force to be reckoned with alongside the genre's biggest stars. Nonstop touring and the continued development of one of the rare groups whose lineup has defied genre convention by barely ever fracturing resulted in 2010's Deep Blue, which cracked the Top 40 in America and debuted at #2 in Australia, where it eventually went gold and won an ARIA award.

In a 2010 cover story, metal tastemaker Kerrang! declared Parkway Drive "The Band You Need To Hear Right Now!," going on to write, "Want one band to get excited about and believe in? It's time to get acquainted with the Aussie metalcore mob Parkway Drive."

Throughout their career, Parkway Drive has worked with the best and brightest producers in the field, including Killswitch guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz (Underoath, Shadows Fall, Unearth) and Joe Baressi (Tool, Coheed and Cambria, Bad Religion). For Atlas, the band convened in Los Angeles with Matt Hyde (Slayer, Children Of Bodom, Hatebreed) to craft their most defining work, assembling the most important components of what's come before with brand new elements and flavor.

On Atlas, Parkway Drive has achieved an improbable victory that so often eludes bands: they've retained the classic elements of their sound while broadening their horizons with new textures and dynamics. Parkway Drive has managed to avoid being stale, to evolve, without compromising their identity. They have figured out a way to stay true to both their own creative muses and the expectations of their most loyal fans simultaneously. It's a feat to be admired by all comers.

Parkway Drive is armed with some of the most upfront and confrontational Metalcore material the world has ever known, balanced with jaw-dropping turns into lush terrain even as they are constantly solidifying their hard-won position as leaders in the field. Always hungry, always filled with ambition, Parkway Drive is embraced by heavy music enthusiasts in places as diverse as China and India, as chronicled on their gold-selling DVD, Home is for the Heartless.

2013 saw the band release their first ever book, Ten Years of Parkway Drive, which documents their decade of chart-topping, road-burning, globetrotting adventures. Meticulously compiled and edited by Callum Preston, the book contains hundreds of photographs gathered from the Parkway Drive archive, the majority of them never seen before.

The dazzling array of full-colour photos, poster art, newspaper articles and magazine covers are accompanied by personal recollections from the band members, their mates, and those who've been alongside them every step of the way.

Across all four albums and year-round onstage, to their supportive fans worldwide, Parkway Drive is passion personified.
Miss May I
Miss May I
A year after breaking out into the scene, Miss May I have returned with their sophomore effort "Monument". Delving deeper into the source of anguish that fueled "Apologies Are For the Weak" (selling well over 25,000 records in 1 year), Miss May I present an even more eclectic side to the organized chaos they have earned a reputation for. Borrowing from a wider range of genres, the new album touches upon parts of thrash merged with melody and metalcore goodness. The intensity on Monument is unmatched by any metal release this year and all that emotion will be unhinged live this summer on the "Back To Your Roots Tour" as the band direct supports for The Devil Wears Prada on their full US tour doing sold out days in most major markets. Watch as these young guns become the next big thing in metal in 2010.
Thy Art Is Murder
Australia's incendiary extreme musical export THY ART IS MURDER, return with one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Produced and mixed by Will Putney (SUICIDE SILENCE, EXHUMED, THE ACACIA STRAIN), "Holy War" is the band's second release for Nuclear Blast Entertainment and third full-length album overall.

"Late last year, we entered the studio in secret to create our follow up to 'Hate', free of expectation and public pressure," explains guitarist Andy Marsh. "What we came out with was a reaction to things going on around the world that crawl under our skin, that make us feel sick to be alive. Musically it is darker, faster and more technical than anything we've done in the past and it hits hard lyrically. We wrote about concerns of ours, real issues, hardships that people are facing around the world today. Of course it wouldn't be a THY ART record if a lot of those affairs weren't rooted in religion somehow, and what better way to sum up the state of all things than by entitling our album 'Holy War'. This is our war on racism, homophobia, child abuse, animal cruelty and all evil born of religious immunity, indoctrination, and ignorance. It is ultimately a push for secularism and humanism. Without it, we will be left in the hands of mad men."

"Holy War" will be available in various formats (digital; limited digi-pak + bonus track; assorted color vinyl; exclusive mail-order picture disc) and unleashed in North America on June 30th, in Europe & Australia on June 26th, and in the U.K. on June 29th.

Rising from the unhallowed wastes of Western Sydney, THY ART IS MURDER successfully cleaved a trail of blood & mayhem since their inception in 2006. With the acclaimed Infinite Death EP (2008) and their debut album The Adversary (2010) firmly establishing their name in the global metal music scene, the band has traversed highways & autobahns all around the world, playing 342 tour dates alone in support of their Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut, Hate (2012), which debuted at #35 on the Top 40 Aria chart - the highest chart debut of any Australian extreme metal band.

Known for their tireless work ethic, THY ART IS MURDER performed at Summer Slaughter 2014 & 2013, headlined their own "Hate Across America" tour in 2013, and supported both EMMURE and BORN OF OSIRIS in 2014, playing throughout the U.S. more times in a two-year period than any other Australian band in any genre of music.
