Parkway Drive Enter StudioParkway Drive are currently bunkered down in a Los Angeles studio hard at work on their fourth album.The as-yet-untitled effort is the follow-up to 2010’s phenomenally successful Deep Blue, which debuted #39 in the US on the Billboard 200, #2 in Australia, as well as reaching solid Gold and winning the ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock and Metal Album. Parkway Drive have also just released a visual stunning Blu-Ray tour DVD "Home Is For The Heartless," that can be found by going to the Epitaph Store.

Fans are invited to check out exclusive in-studio photos by going here: http://www.altpress.com/features/ent...fing_an d_the


The recording is due to take seven weeks, which is the longest time the band has spent on any album. Production is being overseen by Matt Hyde, whose vast resume includes Slayer, Sum 41, Alkaline Trio, Hatebreed and Children of Bodom.

Parkway Drive vocalist Winston McCall says new material flowed easily in the wake of Deep Blue, which saw the group tap a rich vein of creativity.

“When we finished Deep Blue I was like, ‘I don’t know where we go from here?’ But if there was ever a way to step up from the last record, this is the way to do it,” McCall says. “We’re expanding in every way we can. But at the same time – and I say this with every new record – it still sounds like Parkway.”

The band's new DVD was shot in 42 countries on 5 continents. The 75-minute “Home Is For The Heartless” DVD is both a rare travelogue and an in-depth look at Parkway Drive on stage and off. In addition to footage of some of the craziest shows the band has ever played, it also captures some of their greatest adventures and most poignant shared moments. Traveling to many obscure destinations, including some third-world cities that had never been visited by an international heavy band, Parkway Drive embrace the local peoples and cultures as a vital part of their experience.

To watch a preview of this larger than life DVD, please go to:

More than just a film about five musicians connecting with the planet and its inhabitants, "Home is for the Heartless" is about the untold power of music and its ability to communicate beyond any language, geographical or cultural boundaries.


Stay tuned for title, artwork, and tracklisting details in the coming weeks.

Such a solid band; I spin "Horizons" and "Deep Blue" all the time, even on the bus ride to work this morning. Can't wait!
