Parkway Drive Share Trailer For New Documentary “Viva The Underdogs”

Parkway Drive have shared a trailer for their new documentary “Viva The Underdogs.” That film will hit Australian theaters on January 22.

Here’s a description of the documentary:

”Viva The Underdogs‘ features over a decade of behind the scenes personal footage, coupled with unprecedented access to the bands most explosive live tours and world’s biggest music festivals. The film gives an incredibly honest and candid look at Parkway Drive’s journey; the good-times, battles, triumphs, and sacrifices.’

Frontman Winston McCall added:

“We have always taken pride in doing things our way. For over fifteen years we have stayed true to ourselves in a world of extremes. We are not the story of shooting star super stardom, we are not the overnight breakout success, we will never be viral and we sure as hell won’t break the internet.

But we have a vision, and we have lived for it, worked for it, bled for it, grown for it and broken for it. We have sacrificed everything and compromised nothing. This is an honest insight into what it takes to survive as the underdogs. Thank you for being part of the story.”

Concert Review: Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, After The Burial, & Vein In San Francisco, CA

Last night (April 18), I caught Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, After The Burial, and Vein on the first date of the “Collapse The World Tour” and it was an awesome show.

Vein kicked off the night with a heavy and chaotic set that left members of the audience mesmerized. The band goes hard with piercing screams, high jumps, and full on hardcore insanity. A highlight from their set was “Virus://Vibrance.”

Once Vein finished up, it was time for After The Burial to take the stage. The progressive metallers powered through a ferocious set with impeccable musicianship and killer vocals. The crowd was going crazy as the group prepared them for the impending co-headliners. Highlights from their set included “Behold The Crown” off their new album “Evergreen,” which was released today (April 19), and “A Wolf Amongst Ravens.”

Soon it was time for Parkway Drive to storm the stage. The Australian metalcore giants were perhaps the strongest act of the night. Their set consisted of mostly newer material from their 2018 album “Reverence” and their 2015 album “Ire” with several older songs thrown in for good measure. The band’s catchy riffing and thunderous drums had everyone moving as frontman Winston McCall led the charge with an unmatched intensity. Highlights from their set included: “Vice Grip,” “Wild Eyes,” “Crushed,” “Bottom Feeder,” and the haunting “Cemetery Bloom.”

After Parkway Drive, it was time for the metalcore titans in Killswitch Engage to close out the evening. The band played a pretty balanced set with songs spanning their 20 year career and the crowd loved every second of it. Between guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz hilarious onstage antics and Jesse Leach’s powerful vocals, it was entertaining the whole way through. Highlights from their set included: “My Curse,” “My Last Serenade,” “Hate By Design,” “Always,” which was dedicated to a fan named Chopper who is sadly battling terminal brain cancer, and “Strength Of The Mind.”

All in all, it was an amazing show and if you have a chance to make it to one of the dates on this tour it will definitely be worth your while.
