Following the one-time-only screening of their Viva The Underdogs documentary yesterday (Jan 22), Parkway Drive have announced they will be releasing the official movie soundtrack.
The 14-track record includes eleven songs from Parkway's epic headline set at Wacken Open Air in 2019, as well as three German reinterpretations of their tracks Vice Grip (Würgegriff), Shadow Boxing (Schattenboxen) and The Void (Die Leere). Schattenboxen also features a guest appearance from German rapper, Casper.

“This was hands down one of the most unique projects we’ve undertaken,” says vocalist Winston McCall. “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.”
