Parkway Drive Book

For ten years now, Parkway Drive has dared to go where no Australian hardcore band has gone before; Gold-selling albums, platinum-selling DVDs, sold-out tours around the world, and countless visits to faraway lands, including unlikely spots such as India, China, Southeast Asia, and Central and South America.

Now the trailblazing Byron Bay band is releasing a book, 10 Years Of Parkway Drive, which documents their decade of chart-topping, road-burning, globetrotting adventures.

Meticulously compiled and edited by Callum Preston, the book contains hundreds of photographs drawn from the Parkway Drive archive, the majority of them never seen before.

The dazzling array of full-colour photos, poster art, newspaper articles and magazine covers are accompanied by personal recollections from the band members, their mates, and those who’ve been alongside them every step of the way.

10 Years Of Parkway Drive will be available worldwide on September 27.
