Parkway Drive issued the below statement:

“Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic we are postponing the Viva The Underdogs European Revolution until NOV / DEC 2020. Health is the most valuable thing in life and we need to ensure that the wellbeing of everyone is not at stake at any of our shows.

All shows, except Budapest (HU) and Paaspop (NL), have a new date scheduled. Previously purchased tickets will remain valid. The Budapest show will unfortunately be cancelled.

Due to the tour changes Stick To Your Guns and Venom Prison will no longer be able to join. Instead, we will have Crystal Lake as the opener for the tour, Hatebreed will still be main support.

Stay safe, be kind and help each other.

In the meantime, we would like to thank all of you for your messages and comments but ask you to please be patient for a few more days until we can give you more concrete information on how the ‘Viva The Underdogs’ European Revolution 2020 tour will continue.

Winston McCall said the following about recording their music in German:

“This was hands down one of the most unique projects we’ve undertaken. The idea of taking our songs and interpreting them through another language was a massive challenge, but considering the amount of time, love and support that has been shown to us over the years we wanted to commit to doing the project with full integrity.

The result is every effort being made to translate the meaning, spirit, and conviction of these songs in a language that is not our own. We hope the result helps to strengthen the connection this music creates. We offer you these songs out of respect and our heartfelt thanks for all the times you have sung them with us in their original forms. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed the process of creating them.”
