Parkway Drive
Played at Graspop Metal Meeting
2009 / 2011 / 2013 / 2015 / 2018






Surf culture and metal: a bad combination? Fifteen years ago Parkway Drive set out to prove the opposite and it’s fair to say the Aussies have succeeded. Their 2009 GMM debut hit the Dessel plains like a shock wave – and we happen to like shock waves. Today Parkway Drive are metalcore masters and one of the leading bands on the scene, a fact illustrated by several sold-out tours such as the one with Heaven Shall Burn in late 2014. Since their last show here in 2015 they’ve put out one new album and another is on the way. With its more melodic approach and the occasional clean vocals – a first for Parkway Drive - ‘Ire’ (2015) marked a departure from their normal approach even though the album still contained plenty of heavy tracks. They’ve announced a killer new record for 2018 as well so get ready to mosh it up! (#GMM18)
