Parkway Drive show at the Gov
By Christie Thompson
Parkway Drive has been raising hell in Adelaide this week with three sold-out shows at The Gov to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the band’s debut album Horizons.
The gold-certified, #6 Aria award winning album put Parkway Drive on the map and set the pace for their future success. With tracks like Boneyards, Dead Man’s Chest, and an all-time crowd favourite, Carrion, the Horizons album is still seen as some of Parkway Drive’s most iconic work.
The Metalcore band from Byron Bay, known for their complex guitar solo’s and heavy breakdowns, have never been shy to put on an outrageous show and this tour was no exception. Lead singer, Winston McCall, has always been known for revving up a crowd perfectly, and had everyone in the venue’s adrenaline pumping throughout the entire set.
In usual Parkway fashion, the crowd was treated with a few encores and some lucky kids were brought up on stage to take pictures with their hero. Supporting band Polaris received an excellent turnout and set an electrifying atmosphere as they warmed up the stage.
For those who missed it, the Adelaide leg of the epic Ten Years of Horizons tour has sadly come to a close, but don’t feel disheartened! If we know Parkway, they’ll be back sooner than we know it.
