Horizons is the second album by Australian metalcore band Parkway Drive.

Composition[edit]

The track "Feed Them to the Pigs" is named after a line in the Guy Ritchie film Snatch. "Dead Man's Chest" takes its title after the film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

Recording[edit]

Recording took place at Zing Studios, Westfield, Massachusetts in the United States in May 2007.[1] Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage acted as producer. Discussing the recording process, McCall explained: "The songs, the sounds, the speed, the heaviness and the production has all been stepped up. Working with Adam again made our job super easy as well as highly enjoyable."[2]

Release[edit]

On July 24, 2007, Horizons was announced for release, and its track listing was revealed.[2] Horizons was made available for streaming on October 1, and was released on 6 October through Epitaph.[3] In October, the band toured across Australia, before going on tour in Europe with Comeback Kid, Cancer Bats, The Warriors, and This Is Hell the following month.[2] A video has been made for "Boneyards".
