Parkway Drive announce Sick Summer 2012 tour

Australian metalcore giants Parkway Drive have announced an extensive regional tour across the east coast this summer. The Sick Summer 2012 Tour will feature stops in many small towns that are neglected all too often by the touring circuit, kicking off in Lake Kawana on the Sunshine Coast on February 16th.

The shows will mark a rare return to more intimate venues for the band, with many of the rooms holding little more than a few hundred kids. It’s final stop will be Melbourne’s Pushover Festival on March 12th.

On the inspiration behind a second Sick Summer Tour, frontman Winston McCall said:

"For us it means a chance to hit the road in the country we love and play as many of those places we don’t get to stop at as much. We figure the major cities have had their chance so its time to bring the show back to regional Australia, and lets see how crazy the small towns can get. These tours always end up some of the funnest shows we play anywhere. Sweaty venues, stage dives, sing alongs, beach hang outs. Sick Summer indeed. Grab a board and be part of the mayhem.”

Local supports are yet to be announced. All shows are all ages and go on sale November 18th at 9 am local time.
