Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar delves into the aftermath of Toki Wartooth's courageous rescue. In the midst of a professional and romantic downward spiral, Nathan Explosion, the frontman of Dethklok, finds himself deeply traumatized. Simultaneously burdened with the responsibility of fulfilling a prophecy and confronting a monumental songwriting test to save the world, Nathan must grapple with his severely damaged ego. Will he rise above his inner turmoil and emerge as the savior of his band, putting an end to the Metalocalypse, and bravely facing off against the ultimate evil: Salacia?

Metalocalypse creator Brendon Small said:

"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!"
