Aussie metalcore heavyweights, Parkway Drive, recently kicked off their epic European tour, and to get things started in the most electrifying of ways – the guys dropped an absolute pearler of a cover that made the crowd go nuts.

Peering down from the huge Rock am Ring stage in Germany, the Byron Bay natives quietened the ecstatic audience, lead vocalist Winston McCall telling the adoring crowd that they were about to do something out of the regular and play a cover, as Fasterlouder point out.

Excitement reaching feverpitch, he said, “This song is by one of the best bands of all time, it’s got one of the best riffs of all time, so if you haven’t crowd surfed, if you haven’t been in the mosh today – this is the song for it” as the band slammed into Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Bulls On Parade’.

Check out the insane footage right here:

[include_post id=”444707″] It’s a big week for Parkway fans, the band having also released an official announcement for their fifth studio LP, Ire, which is set to hit shelves Friday 25 September of this year.

McCall spoke of the forthcoming record, “This is the album for us. Every single step of the way, whenever there was gamble to take, we took the biggest one we could. If this isn’t the album that can go further than anything we thought was possible with this band and this type of music, that’s fine, but we can’t go back from this as far as we’re concerned.”

If that’s not enough for all you Parkway fanatics, the quintet have also revealed a massive national tour that stretches from September through to October, be sure to snap up a ticket because we’re certain they’ll fly pretty damn quickly.
