Byron Bay's Parkway Drive are set to cement their reputation as one of the most dominant exponents of heavy music on the planet with their third album, Deep Blue.
The hotly anticipated follow-up to 2007s Horizons, Deep Blue raises the bar in every conceivable way. With improved musical abilities and a thoroughly inspired approach to songwriting, Parkway Drive have tied the music and lyrics together into one all-encompassing concept. Its basically about the search for truth in a world that seems to be devoid of that, says vocalist and lyricist Winston McCall, explaining the narrative running through Deep Blue. The story is told through the eyes of a man who wakes up and realises that his life is a lie and nothing he believes in is real. So he tries to find the truth within himself and his journey takes him to the bottom of the ocean and back again.
Having recorded their first two albums with Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage, Deep Blue was tracked and mixed in Los Angeles, CA by Joe Barresi (Queens Of The Stone Age, Bad Religion, Tool), and mastered by legendary mastering engineer Brian Gardner.
Crisp, unprocessed and impossibly heavy, the production on Deep Blue brings out every nuance of Parkway Drives freshly re-focused sound. Already one of the most anticipated heavy releases of 2010, Deep Blue represents an exciting new chapter in the story of Australias most successful hardcore band.
