Parkway Drive Debut Evolved Sound On “Crushed”

Parkway Drive have shared the second single off their upcoming fifth studio album.

Arriving complete with music video accompaniment, just like the band’s last single, “Crushed” premiered online Monday afternoon following a Sunday night premiere on the Triple J radio show. The song showcases an evolved sound for the band, which finds the aggression of their earlier work met with an ever-so-slight alternative edge. It’s not quite mainstream metal, but it does have broad(er) appeal.

The video for “Crushed” finds the members of Parkway Drive falling prey to the torture of the gods. Trapped in a cage that helps to reenforce the metaphors of the song, the band members do their best to perform while omnipresent deities toy with them for no good reason. You can view the elaborate visuals below.

Having heard Parkway’s new album in full I feel it’s safe to say fans of this song will no doubt love Ire. It’s the most diverse record in the band’s discography, but given the material found on 2012’s Atlas I don’t think it’s anything longtime fans will find all that surprising. Parkway has been in a state of constant evolution from day one, and I believe this material to be their most creative to date.

Ire arrives in stores September 18. Pre-orders are available now.
