Parkway Drive have released a brand new track, their first in four years.
And it is huge, of course.
It’s called ‘Glitch’ and continues their exploration of big arena-ready riffs and choruses, littered with darkness and destruction.
Centred around being trapped in the depths of sleep paralysis and the demons that live within them, it is a nightmarish but powerful piece of modern metal that serves as a reminder, if you needed it, of what an incredible band they are.
The band shared had this to say:
“Parkway Drive have always walked the line of balancing the light and the dark, and ‘Glitch’ is no exception. Sonically, we aimed to create a dark, heavy, and unnerving journey while still crafting a melody that burrows its way into your mind. Lyrically, the song deals with the phenomenon of night terrors and sleep paralysis. We all know the power our minds possess, but true terror manifests when your mind and all its fears takes physical control of your body. The glitch in your brain, where nightmares and reality cross.”
And the video demonstrates the sensations described in the lyrics perfectly:
The band are set to tour the UK and Europe, with support coming from While She Sleeps and Lorna Shore later this year.
