Parkway Drive have premiered the third single from their upcoming studio album, Ire. “Sound Of Violence” is a raw, abrasive trip back to metalcore’s roots, and yet it still manages to maintain a sense of the band’s signature sonic force. Listen below and let us know your thoughts.
“This is the soundtrack of our existence as a band,” says vocalist Winston McCall. “Every step we have taken has been down a path chosen by no one but ourselves. We write the music we want to hear, we dress the way we want to dress, we look the way we want to look, we go where we want to go and we play the shows we want to play. Our whole existence we have done things our way in the face of a chorus of voices and opinions telling us that it’s wrong and that we don’t belong. This is our answer, plain and simple.”
Ire is due out September 25 through Epitaph Records. (Pre-orders are on sale now.)
