PARKWAY DRIVE PREMIERE NEW SONG & VIDEO “WISHING WELLS”
AUSTRALIAN METAL BAND TO TOUR EUROPE AND U.K. IN JUNE
Australian metal band Parkway Drive share their new single “Wishing Wells” and its accompanying video. The track is Parkway Drive’s first new offering since their massively successful and critically praised 2015 album Ire.
Opening with ominous vocals and haunting acoustic guitar, “Wishing Wells” soon erupts into a furious and full-throttle metal assault. Captured in one shot, its starkly filmed video marks a deep departure from Parkway Drive’s usual high-production aesthetic. The video features front man Winston McCall giving a powerful close-up performance of “Wishing Wells” with fierce intensity.
According to Parkway Drive—frontman Winston McCall, guitarists Luke Kilpatrick and Jeff Ling, bassist Jia O’Connor, and drummer Ben Gordon— “Wishing Wells” is a meditation on the pain and confusion of loss.
“‘Wishing Wells’ is the compression of grief into song,” says McCall. “It’s attempting to place blame when there is none, seeking answers where there is only emptiness, and ultimately trying to find some kind of reason and meaning to justify the ultimate loss we will all be faced with in life. This is how this chapter begins and will end.”
Known for their masterful live show, Parkway Drive will return to Europe and United Kingdom to play some of the biggest Summer festivals, as well as a handful of headlining shows. Please see below for full details.
