Parkway Drive Postpone European Tour With Hatebreed & Crystal Lake

Parkway Drive have postponed their European tour with Hatebreed and Crystal Lake once again due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek is now expected to take place in 2022.

Parkway Drive said the following:

“As much as we all hoped that things would take a turn for the better this spring, it’s now obvious that the Viva The Underdogs European Revolution 2021 tour will not be able to take place.

With many (inter)national restrictions and guidelines in place, due to the fluid situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it makes any kind of international touring impossible. For these obvious reasons we would need to postpone this tour. Already purchased tickets will remain valid and we will be announcing the new dates in due time. In case of any questions, please contact your local promoter.

We remain positive, happy and excited for the future and seeing you all again sometime soon. Keep safe and look after each other,

Jeff, Luke, Jia, Ben and Winston“

Chelsea Grin, Crystal Lake, & Alpha Wolf Members To Guest On New Left To Suffer EP “On Death”

Left To Suffer have announced that their new EP “On Death“ will be released on April 23. The effort was produced and mixed by Joshua Travis (Emmure) and it will feature the following tracks:

01. “Event”
02. “Denial” (feat. Crystal Lake‘s Ryo Kinoshita)
03. “Anger”
04. “Bargaining” (feat. Alpha Wolf’s Lochie Keogh)
05. “Depression”
06. “Death” (feat. Chelsea Grin’s Tom Barber)

If you missed it, the band’s previously released video for “Anger” can be seen below. A new video for “Depression” will also be released soon.

Spiritbox Premiere Video For “Holy Roller” Remix Featuring Crystal Lake’s Ryo Kinoshita

Spiritbox have premiered a new video for a remix of their song “Holy Roller.“ This version of the track features Crystal Lake‘s Ryo Kinoshita and it will appear on a 7″ single along with the original version. That effort will be released on December 4.

Courtney LaPlante commented:

“Ryo is everything I strive to be in a vocalist and entertainer, so it is truly an honor to hear him performing on this track. He has been supportive of ‘Holy Roller’ from the beginning, so it’s wonderful to have him be our first ever guest vocalist. I think when people hear his verse his vocal gymnastics will blow their minds.”

Kinoshita added:

“It’s an honor to be a part of one of my favorite songs of 2020. It was so much fun to sing ‘Holy Roller’. I really really liked the concept of the song and video, so when it was released, literally every night before I went to bed I imagined how I would sing if I did some parts of the song. I love their diversity. Courtney can be anything. She screams like a demon and whispers like an angel. I can’t wait to see how people will react to this version.”
