Unable to tour along with every other band in existence, Australian metalcore outfit Parkway Drive have been using their downtime to work on the follow-up to 2018's Reverence.

Speaking with Rock Sound in a new interview, vocalist Winston McCall had the following to say about the process thus far:

"We've started writing, which is awesome. It's not something that happens fast for us. Basically, our calendar is messed up. We were gonna take a whole bunch of time off next year to start writing anyway, and now a whole chunk of this year has been wiped out. So, let's just flip the years around — that kind of thing — so we've started writing now. And I'm not sure that's gonna mean that anything will be out sooner — I probably doubt it — but it definitely makes it where we're [able to stay] active. Which is really, really cool — it's a challenge, but it's fun. It's nice to know that there's a lot of gas in the tank, which is really, really cool. At this initial stage, you always hope the passion is still there. You just never know.

"When we write an album and we record an album, we really do put everything we have into one [project until there is] nothing left. We just hope it comes back. Because we always walk out, and it's, like, 'I can't imagine ever writing another song [like that]. That's all the ideas we have at this point in time.' And you hope the spark comes back. And it's been fun. It's been fun because — lots of sparks."
