Rockcast 64: We Sold Out

Friday, Mar, 23 2018

Why do we as rock music fans think that every time our favorite underground band hits radio or has some success they sell out, and then we can't like them anymore? Why do we feel like every time a band changes up their sound a bit they sold out? Every stop to think maybe that's just the direction their art took? As artists the main goal is do what you love for a living, so when an artist has some success that's a good thing. Sure there have been bands or artists over the years that have "sold out" but so what? Let's discuss why most likely your favorite band hasn't in fact sold out. As always feel free to get a hold of us at the social media handles below and continue the conversation. Oh and please if you enjoy listening to the Rockcast, share, share, share.

It's Parkway Drive Day

Tuesday, Mar, 13 2018



Epitaph Records is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Reverence, the sixth studio album from Australian metal band Parkway Drive. Due out May 4, Reverence is the most sonically adventurous and emotionally intense effort yet from the Byron Bay-based five-piece.

“Reverence represents the most honest and personal record we have ever created,” says Parkway Drive frontman Winston McCall. “It has been born though pain, sacrifice, and conviction, with the ultimate goal of expanding not only what Parkway Drive stand for musically, but who we are as people. Thank you for listening.”

Today marks the premiere of “The Void,” one of the many heart-shredding anthems featured on Reverence. Directed by Allan Hardy, the video fully channels the furious energy of “The Void,” a track built on thrashing rhythms, ferocious vocal work, and deeply infectious melodies.

Produced by longtime Parkway Drive sound engineer George Hadjichristou, Reverence arrives as the follow-up to 2015’s IRE—Parkway Drive’s most hugely successful album to date and a major force in boosting their ever-growing worldwide following. In addition to broadening the band’s sonic palette, Reverence offers up some of Parkway Drive’s most devastating songs yet.

TRACKLIST FOR REVERENCE:

1. Wishing Wells

2. Prey

3. Absolute Power

4. Cemetery Bloom

5. The Void

6. I Hope You Rot

7. Shadow Boxing

8. In Blood

9. Chronos

10. The Colour Of Leaving


Along with McCall, Parkway Drive features guitarists Luke Kilpatrick and Jeff Ling, bassist Jia O’Connor, and drummer Ben Gordon. Formed in Byron Bay in 2002, the band has released five studio albums, all on Epitaph: Killing with a Smile (2005), Horizons (2007), Deep Blue (2010), Atlas (2012), and IRE (2015). With all five albums certified gold in Australia, Parkway Drive have also released two platinum-selling DVDs (2012’s Home is for the Heartless and 2009’s Parkway Drive: The DVD).

Globally praised for their powerful live show, Parkway Drive will kick off a spring headlining run of the U.S. next month.

Rockcast 58: No Holds Barred with Robb Flynn

Thursday, Feb, 15 2018

Robb Flynn is the outspoken frontman for Bay Area metal band Machine Head, who have just released their 9th studio album 'Catharsis.' This album has moments that are a bit of departure for Machine Head, specifically the song "Bastards." With slumping CD sales and increasing streams it may have looked like this album wasn't going to do as well as past releases, but a closer look says that's not entirely true. Robb explained this on the General Diaries and the internet hate took over. It's time to go in depth with Robb Flynn.

Avatar (the band) formed in 2001 in Gothenburg, Sweden, a city that is also home to great metal bands like In Flames and The Haunted.
