Parkway Drive Begin Writing New Record

Touring plans have been scrapped yet they find a way to march through it! Aussie giants have now confirmed they have been working on a follow up to their 2018 record, ‘Reverence’.

In a video interview with Rock Sound, Winston McCall (vocals) shared the following:

“We’ve started writing, which is awesome. It’s not something that happens fast for us. Basically, our calendar is messed up. We were gonna take a whole bunch of time off next year to start writing anyway, and now our [touring plans for] this year [have] been wiped out. So, let’s just flip the years around — that kind of thing — so we’ve started writing now.

And I’m not sure that’s gonna mean that anything will be out sooner — I probably doubt it — but it definitely makes it where we’re [able to stay] active. Which is really, really cool — it’s a challenge, but it’s fun. It’s nice to know that there’s a lot of gas in the tank, which is really, really cool. At this initial stage, you always hope the passion is still there. You just never know.

When we write an album and we record an album, we really do put everything we have into one [project until there is] nothing left. We just hope it comes back. Because we always walk out, and it’s, like, “I can’t imagine ever writing another song [like that]. That’s all the ideas we have at this point in time.” And you hope the spark comes back. And it’s been fun. It’s been fun because — lots of sparks.”

In the same interview with McCall, he explains the current circumstances has taken away potential distractions, which allows them to focus on the writing more.

This is literally a situation where it’s just, like, fucking clamps put on everything — we can’t move. The only thing you can move is your mind and creating music, and it’s been liberating to not have that other parts of your mind occupied. So it’s fun.”
