Parkway Drive gave fans the chance to name their Australian East Coast Regional tour, so why the fans?
The band’s lead vocalist Winston McCall said: “Honestly we were just kind of stuck for names”.
“We could have called it anything, but we figured if that was the case we may as well let our fans throw some names at us,” he said.
“After sifting through hundreds of entries and hours of deliberating, the guys handpicked All Aussie Adventure Tour by Justin Fimmel as the winner.
"We had so many great entries. Many hours of laughs, which was what we were hoping for.
“We ended up going with ‘All Aussie Adventure’ because it fit the tour for all the bands playing, Parkway, Make Them Suffer and the local bands at every stop. Plus we all love Russell Coight so that gave the entry the winning edge."
The All Aussie Adventure Tour kicks off on Wednesday, June 15 starting in Cairns and makes its way down the East Coast hitting towns such as Townsville, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast through to Bateau Bay, Wollongong, Albury and towns in between wrapping up the tour on Sunday, July 3 in Frankston.
Winston said the band couldn't wait to get back on the road and revisit all the places they hadn't seen in a long time.
"The last time we did a regional run was over three years ago I think, which is far too long,” he said.
“We're stoked to be finally coming back to these towns that we haven't seen in so long.
“We have amazing memories of many, many, many wild shows, plus it’s always great to see how things have grown and changed with time and see the local musical talent that has sprung up since we've been away."
