Australian metal juggernauts PARKWAY DRIVE — Winston McCall (vocals), Luke Kilpatrick (guitar), Jeff Ling(guitar), Jia O’Connor (bass), and Ben Gordon (drums) will celebrate their 20th anniversary this year. As part of the anniversary celebration, “Don’t Close Your Eyes” will be available on vinyl for the first time ever. This expanded version of the band’s 2004 debut includes the original eight tracks, with the addition of bonus tracks included from their split album with I Killed The Prom Queen and compilation albums “What We’ve Built” and “True Til Death, Volume 1”. It will be available August 18. Pre-order it here.

“20 years is a milestone in any career,” says McCall. “The journey that has led us to this moment has been insane, to say the least. We wanted to mark this time with a tour that represents who we are and where we come from. For the first time on North American soil, we are bringing the fully formed version of the Parkway Drive live experience, and if that wasn’t enough, we’re bringing an all-Australian lineup with us. No compromise, no surrender. This is who we are —The Monsters Of Oz. Come celebrate with us and burn it all away.”
