Parkway Drive To Release ‘Viva The Underdogs’ Soundtrack, Share Live & German Language Version “The Void”


Parkway Drive‘s official soundtrack to their new documentary film ‘Viva The Underdogs‘ will arrive in stores on March 27th via Epitaph. That outing will feature 11 tracks captured during the band’s August 03rd, 2019 performance at the annual ‘Wacken Open Air‘ performance. An additional three studio songs recorded in German will also appear, including “Würgegriff” (“Vice Grip“), “Die Leere” (“The Void“) and “Schattenboxen” (“Shadow Boxing“). German rapper Casper guests on the latter track. Parkway Drive frontman Winston McCall had the following to say about adapting “The Void” into another language:

“This was hands down one of the most unique projects we’ve undertaken. The idea of taking our songs and interpreting them through another language was a massive challenge, but considering the amount of time, love and support that has been shown to us over the years we wanted to commit to doing the project with full integrity.

The result is every effort being made to translate the meaning, spirit, and conviction of these songs in a language that is not our own. We hope the result helps to strengthen the connection this music creates. We offer you these songs out of respect and our heartfelt thanks for all the times you have sung them with us in their original forms. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed the process of creating them.”

Pre-orders for the soundtrack are available here. For now, both the live and German language versions of “The Void” featured on the soundtrack have been released below ahead of time. Meanwhile, the ‘Viva The Underdogs‘ documentary itself chronicles the band’s career and began screening in theaters this week.
