The night grows dark… darker still.”

Parkway Drive Premiere “The Greatest Fear” Music Video

Parkway Drive have premiered a new video for their new song “The Greatest Fear.” This track is from the band’s new album “Darker Still,” which will be released on September 9.

Winston McCall said the following about the song:

“The greatest fear, the one we all share; this song is about the unifying force we all must face —death. The goal was to create a song that saw death not as something that separates, but something that connects us all on our paths. Musically, we wanted to create a song that did this concept justice. It’s heavy, it’s epic and when it stomps it leaves an impact.”

He also added the following about the album:

“When Parkway originally started out, we all were trying to push ourselves to do more than we possibly could. What you hear on ‘Darker Still’ is the final fulfillment of our ability to learn and grow catching up with the imagination that we have always had.”

“Darker Still” Track Listing:

01. “Ground Zero”
02. “Like Napalm”
03. “Glitch”
04. “The Greatest Fear”
05. “Darker Still”
06. “Imperial Heretic”
