ARIA darlings Parkway Drive are touring and coming to Canberra in support of their sixth studio LP, Reverence.

Reverence achieved number one position on the ARIA chart, their fifth ARIA top ten debut and second consecutive number one, placing them in esteemed company alongside some of the biggest Australian bands of all time.

Produced by longtime Parkway Drive sound engineer George Hadjichristou, Reverence is Parkway Drive’s most sonically adventurous album and the most personal from the Byron Bay group.

With its barrage of heart-shredding anthems, the album was closely informed by a series of tragedies the band had endured over the past few years, including the untimely loss of two loved ones.

Accompanying them on the seven date run will be American metalcore giants Killswitch Engage and fellow countrymen Thy Art Is Murder.

Parkway Drive play UC Refectory on Thursday 25 October.
