Parkway Drive Debut At #3 On UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart

Massive results for local lads done good

More Parkway Drive More Parkway Drive

Beloved Byron heavyweights Parkway Drive have stormed their way into the upper echelons of Britain's Official Rock & Metal Albums Chart this week, with acclaimed new EP Ire stepping out at #3.

It's solidly the week's highest new entrant on those rankings, too, making its debut a solid way ahead of next-highest new faces No Devotion and Permanence, who enter at #10 this week. Parkway's arrival on the charts also makes way for Bring Me The Horizon to jump up a spot to #2 (behind David Gilmour's incumbent #1 album Rattle That Lock), as last week's silver medallist, Threat To Survival, by Shinedown, tumbles down to #6.

However, impressive as Parkway Drive's result would be on its own, it's not their only appearance across the British charts this week; in fact, Ire has also seen the Aussie outfit make a top-five debut elsewhere, opening at #4 on this week's Indie Albums Chart. The album also makes its debut on the Official Top 100 Albums chart, a little ways down but still unspeakably impressive at #23.

Parkway Drive are currently in the midst of their tour in support of the new album, but they'll hopefully have a few moments of peace to take a second to celebrate the results before they take the stage with Thy Art Is Murder, Memphis May Fire & The World Alive at Byron Bay High School today and tomorrow. They play in Sydney on Friday 9 October, but will be holding an in-store signing at Utopia Records from 4-6pm the day before.
