Australian metalcore band Parkway Drive, which recently canceled its spring 2022 North American tour, has released a video for the new single “Glitch.” Watch it below.
The song explores the things that minds experience when we are not awake—but not yet asleep—the world of night terrors and sleep paralysis. It is the first new material Parkway Drive has released since thte 2018 album “Reverence.”
“Parkway Drive have always walked the line of balancing the light and the dark, and ‘Glitch’ is no exception,” the band said. “Sonically, we aimed to create a dark, heavy, and unnerving journey while still crafting a melody that burrows its way into your mind. Lyrically, the song deals with the phenomenon of night terrors and sleep paralysis. We all know the power our minds possess, but true terror manifests when your mind and all its fears takes physical control of your body. The glitch in your brain, where nightmares and reality cross.”
In canceling its North American tour, Parkway Drive cited the toll that nearly 20 years as a band has taken on the band members and their friendships. The band’s European tour in September and October will go on as scheduled.
