Today Byron Bay’s Parkway Drive share their new single ‘Wishing Wells’ and its accompanying video with the world. Opening with ominous vocals and haunting acoustic guitar, ‘Wishing Wells’ soon erupts into a furious and full-throttle metal assault. Captured in one shot, its starkly filmed video marks a deep departure from Parkway Drive’s usual high-production aesthetic. The video features front man Winston McCall giving a powerful close-up performance of ‘Wishing Wells’ with fierce intensity.
“Wishing Wells” is the compression of grief into song,” says McCall. “It’s attempting to place blame when there is none, seeking answers where there is only emptiness, and ultimately trying to find some kind of reason and meaning to justify the ultimate loss we will all be faced with in life. This is how this chapter begins and will end.”
