Reverence, the sixth studio album from Australian metal band Parkway Drive, is available in stores and on streaming services today. Reverence is the most sonically adventurous and emotionally intense effort yet from the Byron Bay-based five-piece.

Produced by longtime Parkway Drive sound engineer George Hadjichristou, Reverencearrives as the follow-up to 2015’s IRE—Parkway Drive’s most hugely successful album to date and a major force in boosting their ever-growing worldwide following. In addition to broadening the band’s sonic palette, Reverence offers up some of Parkway Drive’s most devastating songs yet.
