Australian metalcore crew Parkway Drive have ascended through the ranks in recent years and many view the follow up to 2015’s Ire, due out later this year allegedly, as a hugely important record, not just for the band but for the scene as a whole. So now, we officially have our first taste in new single Wishing Wells! According to the band: this is a song about the pain and confusion after losing someone.
“‘Wishing Wells’ is the compression of grief into song. It’s attempting to place blame when there is none, seeking answers where there is only emptiness , and ultimately trying to find some kind of reason and meaning to justify the ultimate loss will all be faced with in life. This is how this chapter begins and will end”
Parkway Drive will headline the Zippo Encore stage at Download Festival on the 9th June.
