Parkway Drive will be flying the Australian flag at the UK’s Sonisphere Festival this July, having just been added to the bill along with Motorhead, In Flames and Mastodon. They join The Big 4 (Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth), Biffy Clyro and Slipknot along with many bands to come.
From the Sonisphere website:
Making the long journey over from Down Under, Australia’s Parkway Drive pay their first visit to Sonisphere, bringing with them an arsenal of mosh-inducing metalcore. Consistently delivering fierce and energetic live shows, Parkway Drive have earned a reputation for unforgettable performances, through hard work and heavy touring with the likes of Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Bleeding Through and many more. Hot off the back of a UK tour, the promise of Parkway Drive’s exclusive festival appearance at Sonisphere is one that is bound to excite the fans as much as the band:
“Holy crap they’re actually letting us play this thing!!!” shouts vocalist Winston McCall. “Sonisphere 2011!!! I don’t think we can really describe how excited we are to play, and I think Jeff will probably die when Metallica play!”
