Parkway Drive cancel North American tour with Hatebreed, The Black Dahlia Murder, Stick To Your Guns

Announced in January, Parkway Drive's headlining tour of North America has been canceled.

Parkway Drive have canceled their spring tour of North America as they apparently need some time off "to reflect on who we are as individuals." The trek had been set to feature support from Hatebreed, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Stick To Your Guns.

A statement from Parkway Drive reads as follows:

Dear friends, family and fans,

This is something we never thought we would be writing, but we not only all believe you deserve an explanation, but we feel the need to communicate and connect with true honesty. Firstly, this is hard, please know we are fully aware that another canceled tour is not what you want to see from us, and for any expectations or plans we have messed with, we are truly sorry.We have been doing this thing called Parkway Drive for nearly 20 years. We started as kids and never looked back. It has been a wild ride, but over those years, the relentless nature of being in this band has given us very little time to reflect on who we are as individuals, who we want to be and the toll it is taking on ourselves and our friendships. It has always been 100% commitment or nothing. We feel the limit has been reached and we don’t want to fuck this up. The same devotion that we have put into everything before, we are now putting into processing what these 20 years have done to us. With this, we aim to grow and return stronger for what is yet to come. We know what we need to do and we humbly ask for your respect while we take this time for the growth that is needed. It has been said that it is better to burn out than to fade away. We do not want either, so know that our return will burn brighter than the past.

Jeff, Luke, Ben, Jia and Winston.

p.s. We are still focused and committed to our European tour, so that will go ahead as planned in Sep/Oct 2022.

We need time to reflect on being lucky enough to make a living playing music for the last 20 years. You boys is soft...

Translation: arena tour didn't sell enough tickets

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:24:32 AM

Haven't been on a tour in two years because of the vid… now you need more time? Lame.

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:25:40 AM

Keith Buckley here. I'd be happy to take over vocals if things aren't working out.

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:26:27 AM

without the proper jab sequence followed by all members this was predictable. there are no exceptions during a pandemic

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:27:12 AM

Emmure should be on this

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:27:23 AM

They haven't written anything decent in over a decade, might as well take this "self-reflection" period to throw in the towel before their embarrass themselves even further.

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:37:11 AM

Who farted?

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:38:46 AM

f*cking pussies

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:40:43 AM

Jamey Jasta must be fuming. What an absolute bul lshit reason to cancel a tour. You couldn't come to this realization before you announced the tour & all the venues were promoting it after they held then booked in dates for you over other opportunities presented to them? Garbage humans. EVERY venue should tell Parkway Drive to rent venues with refunds based on legitimate reasons to cancel (not their BS) or kick rocks. Way to fu ck over your crew, the undercard & their crews, the venues & their staff Parkway Drive. Play every night at your studio for 30 nights & charge $9.99 for each performance as sholes.

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:41:55 AM

nothing good after Horizons anyways

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:45:27 AM

they are done.

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:48:24 AM

They're about to break up.

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:48:52 AM

Jamey Jasta here, boys I'm not mad, I'm disappointed. Now go to your room and think about the consequences of your actions.

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:50:20 AM

Shower of mediocre shit after Horizons

Portslob 4/6/2022 10:54:44 AM

That's the one band I wouldn't stay for on that tour

anonymous 4/6/2022 10:58:38 AM

Bdm can't catch a break. Also what a pussy ass vague response. Man up and tell the truth about why you're cancelling instead of this cop out "we can be better" paragraph. Grown ass men gaslighting their following and f*cking over everyone in between. Lulz

anonymous 4/6/2022 11:02:49 AM

This just leaves more time to support Trump.

anonymous 4/6/2022 11:08:11 AM

NO!! NO!!!!!!!

rick_tocchet 4/6/2022 11:28:51 AM

They are probably still locked up in the COVID camps in the Down Under. Good luck bois, should of never of did that gun buy back program.

anonymous 4/6/2022 11:31:06 AM

they need to reflect on how dogshit everything after horizons has been

anonymous 4/6/2022 11:35:27 AM

rick_tocchet 5 minutes ago They are probably still locked up in the COVID camps in the Down Under. Good luck bois, should of never of did that gun buy back program. Death, taxes, and Rick with the same boring tired schtick

anonymous 4/6/2022 11:35:39 AM

The singer is not vaccinated, so the United States will not let him in the country, so that is why they cancelled the tour. No other reason

anonymous 4/6/2022 11:50:32 AM

AKA: We're about to be outed for underage sex crimes and we're trying to get ahead of the accusations/story by pretending we're going on a hiatus to "reflect" on our behavior over the years.

anonymous 4/6/2022 11:52:40 AM

Jamey jasta is gonna be pissed. His pods gotten ultra shitty lately

anonymous 4/6/2022 11:54:08 AM

Metalcore is gonna metalcore amirite

anonymous 4/6/2022 11:58:02 AM

Jamey Jasta here, boys I'm not mad, I'm disappointed. Now go to your room and think about the consequences of your actions. >> I'm imagining him saying this in his strange surfer dude voice but in reality he must be furious. This would've been his best payday after a headlining tour which he sacrificed to do this tour. Problem with him is he'd rather Hatebreed be direct support thus at the mercy of the whim of whoever they support so he is partly to blame for losing this tour. He's afraid to headline.

anonymous 4/6/2022 11:58:24 AM

lol jamey jasta is gonna have to come up with a scheme quick to make those mortgage payments now so get prepared for Jamey Jasta's Jamey Pasta Extra Chunky Pasta Sauce it'll go best with farfalle

anonymous 4/6/2022 12:04:15 PM

wtf does this statement even mean?

anonymous 4/6/2022 12:06:21 PM

^^^ He still has a mortgage? In Connecticut? I could see him putting out his own pasta - Jasta Pasta 😂😂😂

anonymous 4/6/2022 12:12:52 PM

wtf does this statement even mean? >> They're totally unaware that they are inconsiderate unprofessional as sholes.

anonymous 4/6/2022 12:15:34 PM

Pretty sure every band realized that stick to your woke still didn't drop off and said let's just delete the whole tour

anonymous 4/6/2022 12:47:06 PM

This is a reflection of mediocre ticket sales and nothing more. No way they would have canceled if venues were near-capacity/sold out. Can't blame them for not wanting to come here and lose money, but maybe just acknowledge that the tour wasn't financially feasible? Yeah, the openers are all solid draws in their own scenes, but I'm not paying $50 or whatever to see BDM and leave.

anonymous 4/6/2022 12:54:13 PM

Did Jasta really buy a house in CT? That's an expensive mistake. This tour is cancelled because we are about to see some real wild shit heading into midterms. Make sure to keep a few days worth of food and water on hand at ALL times and good luck. God Bless and I look forward to shit posting on the other side of this nightmare.

anonymous 4/6/2022 1:00:39 PM

Good luck bois, should of never of did that gun buy back program. should have never have

anonymous 4/6/2022 1:02:17 PM

"Did Jasta really buy a house in CT? That's an expensive mistake. This tour is cancelled because we are about to see some real wild shit heading into midterms. Make sure to keep a few days worth of food and water on hand at ALL times and good luck." Of course he has a house. He's not making Vogel money but they were big once upon a time. And what conspiracy are you pushing now? Should we be prepping for another civil war that's not going to happen?

anonymous 4/6/2022 1:06:45 PM

Low ticket sales for overly ambitious venues is clearly the reason for this cancellation - these idiots just had 2 years off from touring to "reflect", give me a break.

anonymous 4/6/2022 1:16:40 PM

Jamey jasta is gonna be pissed. His pods gotten ultra shitty lately ^^^^^ To be fair, all podcasts suck lately. Podcasting was a trend during the pandemic. No one gives a f*ck now.

anonymous 4/6/2022 1:46:03 PM

^^^ The problem with podcasts is there's no structure to them, the hosts are bad interviewers & they play it safe. Why not a call-in segment with Jamey Jasta where he gets into it with at least one bonafide hater? I would laugh til my sides hurt.

anonymous 4/6/2022 1:52:24 PM

Low ticket sales for overly ambitious venues is clearly the reason for this cancellation. Yup. They tried to take next step up in venue size from House of Blues-sized rooms, which they can fill, to 3000+ seaters, which they can't. Tried to cover their bases with sizable names on undercard but not enough, apparently.

anonymous 4/6/2022 1:58:43 PM

Why couldn't it be racist Emma from dying Wish being canceled

anonymous 4/6/2022 2:14:53 PM

Hatebreed definitely makes more money than Terror

anonymous 4/6/2022 2:20:18 PM

Why couldn't it be racist Emma from dying Wish being canceled >>> Post the screenshots of her racist tweets or STFU. Post the receipts. I've no doubt they're out there.

Say it's just the undercard for 35 advance 40 day of show. Why the F U C K would I pay 50 advance 55 day of show with Parkway Drive added to that? IDGAFA Parkway Drive. You have to book an undercard which sweetens the pot for YOUR FANS or is similar to your following with little or no crossdraw.

anonymous 4/6/2022 3:03:44 PM

I could see him putting out his own pasta - Jasta Pasta 😂😂😂 I thought he had already

anonymous 4/6/2022 3:19:28 PM

Yes, Jamey has indeed put out Jasta Pasta. Literally.

If the shows were selling out I'm sure they wouldn't need time to reflect and heal. Weak

anonymous 4/6/2022 3:53:13 PM

Not Mastodon level at all.

anonymous 4/6/2022 4:00:30 PM

ok your whack ass band is officially dead to me and f*ck europe & your european tour

anonymous 4/6/2022 4:19:19 PM

Yeah..."we need to pause and reflect on life" or whatever... But their serious life reflection will be all wrapped up in time for Europe!

anonymous 4/6/2022 4:52:26 PM

Shoulda just kept the tour without them and changed the venues

anonymous 4/6/2022 4:54:15 PM

They looked in the mirror and saw shorts and hoodies. Time to grow up.

anonymous 4/6/2022 4:56:06 PM

rick_tocchet 5 hours ago They are probably still locked up in the COVID camps in the Down Under. Good luck bois, should of never of did that gun buy back program. For the love of all that is holy, please study a book on English grammar. You're slaughtering the language.

This band was only good when they were Unearth copycats, now they are just arena buttrock.

anonymous 4/6/2022 6:20:00 PM

Who's the pedo in the band and why is it the bassist Band sucks post-Deep Blue

anonymous 4/6/2022 6:39:17 PM

Hell, if this tour hit the TLA or even something of similar size, it'd likely sell the place out. Also Hatebreed afraid to headline is partially true, I think the last was with Code Orange and Dying Fetus iirc, that did sell out the TLA

anonymous 4/6/2022 6:46:59 PM

Translation: One member of the band is a sociopath bully who is manipulative, abusive, and violent. The other members had low self-esteem and were happy following the bully. But the guy with all the talent has grown up now and won't put up with a bully any longer. So they need to reflect.

Hatebreed is afraid to headline & thinks jocking completely different sounding bands is gonna expand their fanbase when nope. Easier to be a caddy than a golfer at this point.

I can confirm this tour was tanking. 1500-2000 sold in most markets. Shapiro f*cked this one up. -Zimmerman

anonymous 4/7/2022 11:15:20 AM

Assuming that poor ticket sales is indeed the reason this tour was cancelled, this shows that people are already over the fact that Covid killed shows for a year and a half. Maybe this tour would have done better if it was late last summer/early fall.
