  • Synopsis
  • Rock n Roll is dead! .... Or is it? Despite the lack of mainstream radio play and absence from the charts, somehow rock lives on. How? More than just music, rock is an experience! Dedicated festivals across the globe are still selling out, led by living legends like Ozzy Osbourne, Slayer & AC/DC giving fans huge live show spectacles unlike any other. The issue? There has not been any new bands to reach the heights of those pioneering Rock Gods for over 20 years! A changing of the guard is long overdue and festival promoters are looking for the next band to step up and own that headline spot, to continue the legacy and prove to fans that rock isn't dead. 'Viva The Underdogs' follows the self-managed Australian heavy metal band Parkway Drive on their 15 year underdog journey, to see if they can go from small-town surf rats to international festival headliners. From searching out surf spots and sleeping on the streets for their first international tour, to evolving their sound and re-setting the benchmark in metal with every new album, the five high-school band mates have always done it their own way, chasing adventures, having fun and breaking boundaries year after year. Now, 15 years since it all began Parkway Drive put it all on the line to create the biggest most explosive show for their fans. Self-funded, self-managed and committing to over 100 tour stops, with 40+ crew members & 6 semi- trailers filled with cutting edge audio visual equipment & pyrotechnics, is it enough for the five high-school mates to defy the odds and earn their spot at the top of the worlds biggest rock festivals? A decade of behind the scenes personal footage, coupled with unprecedented access to the bands most explosive live tours and worlds biggest music festivals, 'Viva The Underdogs' gives viewers an incredibly honest & candid look at Parkway Drive's journey, good-times, battles, triumphs and sacrifices, as they take on the music industry.
