Parkway Drive, We Came As Romans and Counterparts have announced a North American tour.

The three bands will set off across the US and Canada under the Unbreakable Tour banner in September and October.

Parkway Drive released their video for Devil’s Calling last month – lifted from the deluxe edition of their latest album Ire. They also won Best Video at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards for their Vice Grip promo in June.

Speaking about the follow-up to 2012’s Atlas, frontman Winston McCall told Metal Hammer: “We had a band meeting and it turned out all of us were thinking the same thing – none of us would get creative fulfilment out of writing another Parkway metalcore album.

“It was a really odd point to be at. We didn’t want to stop what Parkway was about, but at the same time there had to be a different way of doing it.”

Meanwhile, the Australian outfit have scheduled a run of European festival appearances throughout August.
