Having toured together on the 2010 Warped Tour, Parkway Drive and UK’s You Me At Six clicked from the word go. It may have been a case of World Cup fever from watching many a game together or the friendly games of soccer the bands played themselves that bonded them, but one thing is for sure it was a shared outlook and attitude that brought the two groups together from the opposite sides of the globe and genre spectrum.
“I think the name of the tour says it all” says Parkway Drive vocalist Winston McCall.
“When we first started going to shows we we’re stoked to be able to see a bunch of bands that we liked, but also that may not sound exactly the same. These days it seems every tour has become so stream lined to one particular sound you may as well be watching the same band play four or five times in a row“.
“This tour has a bit of everything for anyone who like’s their music a little faster, a little more energetic, something local, something punk, something heavy, something rock, and then us hahaha. It’s everything we love, and we couldn’t be more siked”
You Me At Six frontman Josh Franceschi commented “We’re really happy to announce that we’ll be hitting Australia with our boys in Parkway Drive. The shows are going to be HUUUGGGEEE, so if you like either of our bands head down. Ripper!”
