Parkway Drive to headline fall 2023 U.S. ‘Monsters of Oz’ tour

Australian metal band Parkway Drive will return to the United States for a fall 2023 headline tour and appear at several festivals, including Louder Than Life and Aftershock.

The “Monsters of Oz” tour, which follows Parkway Drive’s sold-out winter 2023 run, will maek Parkway Drive’s 20th anniversary as a band. The trek will feature an all-Aussie lineup, with The Amity Affliction as direct support. Northlane and Make Them Suffer round out the bill.

Tickets will go on sale here at 10 a.m. local time Friday, April 21. 

“Twenty years is a milestone in any career,” vocalist Winston McCall said. “The journey that has lead us to this moment has been insane, to say the least. We wanted to mark this time with a tour that represents who we are and where we come from. For the first time on North American soil, we are bringing the fully-formed version of the Parkway Drive live experience, and if that wasn’t enough, we’re bringing an all-Australian lineup with us. No compromise, no surrender. This is who we are—the monsters Of Oz. Come celebrate with us and burn it all away.”

As part of the anniversary celebration, “Don’t Close Your Eyes,” will be available on vinyl for the first time ever. This expanded version of the band’s 2004 debut includes the original eight tracks, with the addition of bonus tracks included from its split album with I Killed The Prom Queen and compilation albums “What We’ve Built” and “True Til Death, Volume 1.” It will be available Aug. 18. Pre-order it here.

Parkway Drive’s seventh album, “Darker Still,” is out now via Epitaph Records. Listen here.
