Parkway Drive Crush It With New Single And Video
After dropping their huge second single “Crushed” on Good Nights on triple j last night, Parkway Drive have just released a music video to go with it. Apparently jumping out of a plane wasn’t enough danger, as “Crushed” has the band attempting to perform while being tossed around in constantly revolving rooms. Also, there’s some giant golden gods there too, just hanging out.
“‘Crushed’ is a continuation of the musical evolution of Parkway Drive,” explains frontman Winston McCall. “Lyrically this song deals with the concept of power and control that is the basis for modern society. We live in a time when the lives of the many are lived at the will of the few. Filter information and deceit are used as controls while we are told to fear and persecute rather than understand and sympathise. We have let the balance of power slip so far that a godlike will is able to be imposed upon the masses with little to no way of breaking the cycle.”
Continuing, McCall says of the film clip: “The video we created was aimed to reflect these facets. We can’t break gravity, but we did our best to twist it, so we filmed it all in a room that was constantly rotating 360 degrees, which made for an awesome effect, but added a crazy amount of danger to the process.”
We’re going to start taking bets for what dangerous thing they’ll do for their third single. Some kind of Mad Max death race? Maybe they’ll fight a shark?
Ire is out September 25 through Resist Records.
