PARK­WAY DRIVE

WIN­STON MCCALLCALL IS READY­ING HIM­SELF FOR PARK­WAY DRIVEÕS BIG­GEST UK TOUR Ð BUT NOT BE­FORE HE GETS HIS HANDS ON SOME M&S SCONESÉ

Kerrang! (UK) - - Gigs -

HEY, WIN­STON! TH­ESE ARE GO­ING TO BE THE BIG­GEST HEAD­LINE SHOWS PARK­WAY DRIVE HAVE EVER PLAYED IN THE UK – DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’VE MADE IT?

WIN­STON MCCALL ( VO­CALS): “( Laughs) It de­pends if you have a desti­na­tion in the first place! We’re def­i­nitely psyched, and we are bring­ing a show that no-one has seen from Park­way be­fore, which is nice. As far as ‘mak­ing it’ goes, we have a lot big­ger things in mind in terms of where we can go; it’s still just the start for us. That be­ing said, we don’t want to sound like ar­ro­gant ar­se­holes. We’re just so fuck­ing stoked that this tour seems to be lin­ing up so fuck­ing well – it’s pretty in­cred­i­ble.”

LAST TIME YOU WERE HERE, YOU HAD A LOAD OF SNOW CAN­NONS. WHAT CAN WE EX­PECT THIS TIME?

“I don’t want to give away too much.the Park­way Drive that you see on­stage now is a more stream­lined, in­spired unit than it was be­fore. It’s ev­ery­thing that you’ve come to ex­pect from us: it’s amped up and way, way big­ger – we have things that burn, we have things that ex­plode, as well as a whole bunch of new tunes. It’s a show now – not just a bunch of ran­dom songs.”

YOU HAVE SO MANY SONGS NOW, IS IT HARD PICK­ING A SET LIST TH­ESE DAYS?

“We never re­ally had that prob­lem un­til this al­bum [Ire]. It’s been sur­pris­ing – a re­ally nice sur­prise. We have so many old songs that peo­ple love, which we don’t want to cut out, but all of a sud­den we have so many songs from the new al­bum that are our favourites – it’s fuck­ing nuts.”

YOU’RE BRING­ING BURY TO­MOR­ROW AND THY ART IS MUR­DER WITH YOU – IS THIS A DE­STRUC­TIVE TOUR PACK­AGE?

“Oh yes! That’s pretty ob­vi­ous ( laughs). It’s go­ing to be great. I’m re­ally stoked that we can bring such an in­tense pack­age to th­ese venues. It’s one thing to play some­where like The Un­der­world and it be nuts, but then when you times that by 10, it looks like some fuck­ing scene from Brave­heart ( laughs). I’m psyched on Bury To­mor­row – the new tracks I’ve heard have been re­ally, re­ally phe­nom­e­nal and we ac­tu­ally haven’t toured with those guys. We’ve been tour­ing with Thy Art a fair bit, and they’re great dudes.”

FI­NALLY, WHAT HAVE PARK­WAY DRIVE GOT PLANNED FOR THE REST OF 2016?

“New mu­sic, more tour­ing and that’s about it! It keeps go­ing in that cy­cle.we’ve got some fes­ti­vals com­ing up, so we’ll be back in the sum­mer.we’re go­ing back to Amer­ica. It doesn’t seem to stop – this record has given us run­ning legs, so we’re mak­ing the most of it and we’re pretty psyched.”

DATES: Lon­don O2 Academy Brix­ton Fe­bru­ary 12, O2 Apollo Manch­ester 13, O2 Academy Glas­gow 14, O2 Academy Birm­ing­ham 15. Sup­port: Bury To­mor­row, Thy Art Is Mur­der.
