Parkway Drive Donate $50,000 To Australian Bushfire Relief
Byron Bay bruisers Parkway Drive have donated $50,000 to the Australian bushfire relief effort.

The money raised will be split evenly between WIRES – a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation charity based in New South Wales – and Red Cross Australia.

The Ghost Inside also held a fundraising event in Victoria, Australia, this week ahead of their set at UNIFY Gathering. “There’s no way we could come here at this time, see what’s going on, and not try to do our part,” said the band.
