Parkway Drive have revealed in a new Alternative Press feature that they are currently in the studio recording their new album.
This time around the band is working with producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed, Terror) at Sunset Lodge studios in Los Angeles, and will be there recording the album for the next six to seven weeks. Vocalist Winston McCall commented on working with Hyde, "We had a bit of a different idea of what we wanted to do on this record–we’re not really down for making the same album twice–and we felt that we needed to switch something up in order to achieve that different sound. A friend recommended Matt to us, and when we met up with him it clicked straight away."
McCall also hinted as to what fans can expect to hear on the new record, stating "Well, I think that out of all our records this one’s probably going to shock people the most, because there are some things in here that…[pauses] I don’t think it’s big changes to the Parkway Drive sound, but we’re going to add stuff to the sound that people would never expect. On Deep Blue, we experimented with a couple of new things in small doses to see if they worked–and they did. So this time around we said, “Okay, if that worked, we can do it to a larger degree, and we can do it in more places, and do it with more instruments and more voices.” It’s like the gates have opened in the creative department."
