Later this month Byron Bay’s Parkway Drive returns home for the "Deep Blue" Australian Tour. These homecoming shows are the first on home soil since their landmark album Deep Blue debuted ARIA #2 and #39 in the US Billboard 200.
With the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney and the Showgrounds in Hobart now sold out, tickets for the remaining Australian shows are expected to sell out in advance.
Deep Blue has thrilled critics such as prestigious UK magazine Metal Hammer who dubbed it “a milestone album for modern metal” fans agree, keeping the album in the ARIA charts over 10 weeks and snapping up thousands of tickets for shows that will see Parkway Drive playing the biggest venues the band has headlined to date.
Media around the world are united in their praise of Parkway Drive’s third album:
Parkway Drive have created a record that isn’t just a landmark album for themselves, it’s a milestone album for modern metal. – Metal Hammer Magazine (UK)
Destined to be the template heavy bands worldwide pinch their inspiration from for the next few years – Blunt (AU)
Parkway Drive give the performance of their lives on Deep Blue, and in doing so they have delivered one of the albums of 2010. – Alternative Press (USA)
If Parkway Drive had written a good record their good fortune would have surely continued, but "Deep Blue" is a great record, so what happens now? – Rocksound (UK)
