The Halsey Memoirs

When we asked Nic Barclay, producer of The Three Conscious Project, what the story was with this footage of Alex Halsey, he simply said that “it’s just a little cut of some of the North Point footage from the last section of the film. I hadn’t edited anything in a while so I made it.”

Good enough excuse for us.

Parkway In Byron Bay

We’re lucky enough to be located just 10 minutes from Byron Bay, the home of Parkway Drive, so when the fellas played their first show at the Byron YAC in about five years on Saturday night, we were there with bells on. If you ever get a chance to see Parkway play a hometown show, do it ’cause it’s an experience you’ll never forget. Fucking wild!

Parkway Drive are currently on the road for their Sick Summer Tour. There’s still limited tickets available for most shows so if you wanna be one of the first to hear a track from their new album to be released later this year, click here for more information.

Big Day Tomorrow!

My first heat [in the Pipe Challenge] hits the water tomorrow afternoon, and there’s more then enough swell for it! It’s predicted to be in the 10 foot range, and although I’m nervous, I’m really excited at the same time. I think some amazing things are going to happen tomorrow and I want to be ready when that opportunity comes. Read more…
