Unite TV Episode 2

We are proud to announce the release of Unite TV Episode 2 featuring Nick Ormerod and his standout performance during the 2012 season in Hawaii.

“Hawaii this year was really good, probably the best season I’ve been there. Plenty of Pipe for the comp and free surfing and some good, rampy days in between,” Nick claimed upon his return from the Pacific paradise.

In his tenth season on the North Shore, Nick was a clear standout amongst the star-studded crowd that invaded the infamous lineup throughout January and February. So, what was different for him this year compared to years passed?

“I think experience plays a big part over there. I had a couple of sessions where I felt good about my riding, but there was nothing different about this year except for maybe more consistent waves. I guess I was more clear about what I wanted from Hawaii and a little more driven too,” Nick explained.

With a mind-blowing start to the year, Nick is keen to keep his momentum going forward and is planning an attack on the IBA World Tour throughout the remainder of 2012.

“My main goal this year is to qualify for the 2013 World Tour. I’ve never had a whole year planned around comps, or even a clear goal for that matter. I know what I’ve gotta do and I’m amped to make it happen.”

Unite TV is available on YouTube, Vimeo and iTunes. To view or download the latest episode, visit uniteclothingco.com/unitetv.

Film For The Heartless

Parkway Drive invite you to see the world through their eyes with a film that follows the band on their endless global trek.

Shot in 42 countries on five continents, the 75 minute Home Is For The Heartless DVD is both a rare travelogue and an in-depth look at Parkway on stage and off. Their first DVD release, Parkway Drive: The DVD, was the highest selling Australian music DVD of 2009, achieving Platinum sales, and winning the Rolling Stone Award for Best Music DVD.

Where The DVD told the story of bands history and achievements up to that point, Home Is For The Heartless is a much more unique and personal statement. In addition to footage of some of the craziest shows the band has ever played, it also captures some of their greatest adventures and most poignant shared moments.

Traveling to many obscure destinations, including some third-world cities that had never been visited by an international heavy band, Parkway Drive embrace the local peoples and cultures as a vital part of their experience.

Stay tuned for release dates for the Home Is For The Heartless DVD coming soon.
