Exciting news for fans of Parkway Drive today with the announcement that the band will release new album “Atlas” via Resist Records on October 26th. The band will be also releasing  a deluxe package that includes the “Home Is For The Heartless” DVD with the new album. ‘Home is for the Heartless’ is a unique travelogue that follows the band’s adventures touring to many obscure destinations including Colombia, China, and India. To top things off the band have just unleashes a brand new video for the debut track “Dark Days” which you can check out below.

“Recorded in Los Angeles with esteemed producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed, etc.), the soon-to-be-released Atlas sets the standard in musical progression by pushing musical boundaries and drawing from a wider scope of influence. From heavy, technically advanced riffs and rapid fire blast beats, to haunting death growls combined with fervent vocals and symphonic melodies, Atlas’s ferocious mix of metal and hardcore reaches new horizons with songs such as ‘Dark Days,’ ‘Old Ghost / New Regrets,’ and ‘The River,’ all of which will have fans careening straight for the circle pit.”

“Everything has been enhanced,” says Parkway Drive vocalist Winston McCall. “People don’t have to kiss the old parts goodbye. When you think of change, you think of things being taken away, but there’s not a case here where anything has been taken away. This is just more on top.”

“Atlas is a culmination of ten years,” continues McCall. “Ten years of Parkway Drive, ten years of travel, ten years of being alive and watching our world spiral out of control. We’re not holding anything back, we’re not pulling any punches, and this world deserves nothing less.”

Asked if he feels as though he and the band are anything like the mythological Greek titan, bearing the weight of the world on their shoulders, Winston replies: “I think everybody feels that way at one time or another. It’s a heavy place to live, and it’s a heavy time to be alive. Some people watch the DVD and go, ‘Man, it makes me jealous of your life.’ But I think with every expanse of your horizons, you go into another bubble of society where you see that others in the world ain’t doing so good. It’s one of those things, the more your horizons expand, the more negative things you see. For that reason there is a lot of stuff on this record that is more confrontational than anything we’ve written in the past.”
