Dethklok announce North American co-headlining tour with Babymetal


Official press release:

The long-awaited return of Adult Swim's favorite heavy metal adventure "Metalocalypse" arrives with a nationwide tour of the series' on-screen band Dethklok. A full-length original film, written and directed by Brendon Small, Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar, a companion soundtrack and Dethalbum IV will also arrive this year.

Dethklok will kick off their twenty-nine-date national tour on August 30 with Japanese kawaii metal pioneers Babymetal as co-headliners and virtuoso guitarist Jason Richardson as support.

Co-creator Brendan Small shared the following:

It's very surreal having so much new 'Metalocalypse' & DETHKLOK this year with the trifecta of the tour, movie and album. I'm so excited to get on the road with the powerful BABYMETAL, and to celebrate all the hard work that team 'Metalocalypse' and DETHKLOK put in over the last two years and beyond!

Saw Dethklok in 2009 only because Mastodon, High on Fire and Converge were opening. Lasted three songs, maybe.
