Watch Parkway Drive’s Winston on playing Wembley

The Australian metal veterans take to London's SSE Arena Wembley in November.

On 19 November 2020, Australian metal pioneers Parkway Drive will take to London’s SSE Arena Wembley for their biggest headline show to date. It comes six albums into their acclaimed career, one that has seen them take the top spot at a number of global festivals in part thanks to their powerful live performance and their reluctance to stand still.

Across six record, most recently releasing Reverence in 2018, Parkway Drive have grown and evolved. Their experimental take on metal, breaking the standard confines of the genre, has seen them gather fans from across the musical spectrum. Testament to this, the band have seen an increase in their commercial success with each record; their most recent reaching the No.1 spot on the Australian chart and breaking into the top 20 in the UK.

Their ever-enigmatic frontman Winston McCall puts it all down to the band’s willingness to learn and develop. Never resting on their laurels, Parkway Drive have thrived on an attitude of self-betterment. Taking each opportunity with unfiltered enthusiasm, the band have watched their fanbase grow with them.

Now, as they prepare to take to London’s iconic SSE Arena Wembley, Winston sits down to talk about what fans can expect from the show, and to look back at their journey over the past 15 years that has led them to this point.

The show also follows the release of their Viva the Underdogs documentary, which premiered across cinemas on 22 January 2020. The documentary takes fans behind the scenes, looking at what it takes for a band outside of the mainstream to reach the very top.

As part of the Viva the Underdogs tour, Parkway Drive will be joined in London by stateside metalcore outfit Hatebreed, hardcore punks Stick To Your Guns and rising Welsh metal stars Venom Prison.

All four bands take to the stage at London’s SSE Arena Wembley on Thursday 19 November 2020.
