SXSW 2014 Day Four: Spirit Caravan

Saturday, March 14, the roads seem quiet compared to the previous night. Part of this was due to my moving back to Red River Street and away from Dirty Sixth. Everybody seemed tired, and as a publicist opined to me, Thursday morning's crash on Red River casted bad mojo onto the festivities. Whatever the cause, there was no 1001 person to flood a capacity venue. More...

King Parrot Checks In From The Road

Melbourne thrash grind assassins King Parrot successfully leveled SXSW with five scathing performances, including an appearance at this year's Tone Deaf Touring Showcase featuring Spirit Caravan, Iron Reagan, Pilgrim and more.

Comments the band, "King Parrot had an awesome experience at SXSW; total chaos, but all in all a hugely positive opportunity for the band to get out in front the world's music industry and show our wares. The feedback we received from some industry heavyweights was that they enjoyed our show and it's fair to say you'll be hearing a lot more from King Parrot in the future. For now though, we carry on with our extensive North American tour."

King Parrot is currently searing the eyes and ears of North America on a near-six-week run of live ambushes. The band is joined by atmospheric blackened doom bringers, Vattnet Viskar, and stoner death doomers, Vaporizer on select dates.

The band is touring in support of the "Bite Your Head Off" full-length released via Candlelight Records last year. Catch King Parrot live: More...
