Dethklok and Mastodon Announce Massive US Tour

This fall, two of the most popular bands in metal will co-headline a 34-city North American tour as the Grammy® Award-winning Mastodon hits the road with Dethklok, the world’s most brutal animated death metal band from Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse. In one of the most highly-anticipated tours of the year, the Adult Swim Presents Dethklok and Mastodon tour will kick off on October 2 in Portland, Ore. and bring mayhem and destruction to local venues throughout the nation. Adding even more layers to this fall’s top metal tour, Oakland’s High On Fire and Converge will open each show. There will be a ticket pre-sale that begins on Tuesday, August 4 at 10:00 AM EST, while the full allotment of tickets will go on sale to the general public starting Friday, August 7. For more information about the tour including the pre-sale ticket password, price ranges and how to order, please visit www.adultswimpresents.com.

As sponsor for the entire tour, Adult Swim will feature "Brütal Legend" gaming stations for fans to experience the videogame first-hand, while a two-minute animated content piece, created by Titmouse, will air during each show. Print ads, AdultSwim.com and on-site materials will also feature the videogame as the tour’s key sponsor. "Brütal Legend" is an epic action game from visionary developer Tim Schafer. Jack Black stars as Eddie Riggs, a legendary roadie summoned to a world of Heavy Metal where mountains are made of amplifiers, killer spiders spin guitar strings and Rock Legends roam the landscape. As Eddie, crush skulls with a battle axe, ravage the road in a super-charged Hot Rod and unleash the power of Rock to reign down fire from the sky – all to save humanity and become a Brütal Legend.

Nathan Explosion, William Murderface, Skwisgaar Swigelf, Toki Wartooth and Pickles – better known as Dethklok – will take to the road in support of the band’s latest CD release from Williams Street Records, "Dethklok: The Dethalbum II," which will be released as both a standard and deluxe edition on September 29 from Williams Street Records. A limited-edition vinyl of the album will also be released at local record shops starting November 24. Bringing the animated band to life on stage each night will be series co-creator and composer Brendon Small along with an all-star band including the legendary Gene Hoglan, Bryan Beller and Mike Keneally. These real life-musicians will perform live while dark-lit and playing underneath a giant projection screen featuring all-new animation and music videos from Dethklok to create a truly unique concert experience.

Sharing the bill with Dethklok on this seven-week tour is Grammy® Award-winning hard icons Mastodon, who are currently touring Europe and the UK with Metallica. The band’s groundbreaking new album Crack The Skye was released on March 24, debuting on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at #11 to overwhelming international critical praise.

Also on the tour is High On Fire. Described as “a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume and sheer heaviness,” High On Fire has forged a style and sound that is both unique and absolutely crushing. The group features vocalist and cult guitar hero Matt Pike, a founding member of the famed underground band SLEEP. Pike was named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of its “New Guitar Gods.”

Also on the tour, Converge will release their anticipated new album "Axe To Fall" on Epitaph on October 20th. The release is the follow up to their highly-acclaimed "No Heroes" album, released on Epitaph in 2006.

The tour schedule for Adult Swim Presents Metalocalypse’s Dethklok and Mastodon with High On Fire and Converge is as follows: More...

Metalocalypse Season 2 DVD Due In December

The world’s biggest, most brutal, murderous and, well, incompetent heavy metal band will once again step into the spotlight in the upcoming Adult Swim DVD release, Metalocalypse: Season Two. From Adult Swim and Warner Home Video, this DVD will be available while the band is at the top of its game – in both the real and animated worlds. Not only does the band’s mega-stardom rank them as the world’s 12th largest economy – but the animated band, Dethklok, has also achieved unparalleled success in the real world. The level of brutality is raised to a whole new level as the band tries its hand at electrocutions, weddings and the glamorous world of publicity in the Metalocalypse: Season Two DVD, which includes all 18 second season episodes and a slew of hidden special features that fans will have to find. That’s right. Anything worthwhile demands some work. So buried within the DVD’s two discs will be a host of bonus features for fans to track down and blog about. Available on December 2nd for the suggested retail price of $29.98, the Metalocalypse: Season Two DVD’s preorder date is October 28th.

Created by Brendon Small (Home Movies) and Tommy Blacha (Da Ali G Show), Metalocalypse follows the on and off-stage adventures of the fictional Dethklok, the insanely popular animated Norwegian heavy metal band. In addition to being the world’s most brutal band members, Nathan Explosion, William “Murderface,” Skwisgaar Skwigelf, Toki Wartooth and Pickles are also stupid…dangerously stupid. From sold out concerts to late-night snack-attacks, the animated heavy metal band creates a wave of mayhem, death and destruction wherever they go, but thanks to their “really good lawyer” they manage to walk away legally unscathed on every occasion. Since debuting on Adult Swim in 2006, the series has become one of the highest-rated original series on the network and the second season was watched by more than five million 18-34 year-old viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. Moreover, the band’s debut CD – Dethklok: The Dethalbum – has become the fastest selling death metal album of all time since debuting at #21 on Billboard’s Top 100 list, and a real-live version of the animated band led by Brendon Small recently completed a sold-out 28-city tour.

Adult Swim will support the Metalocalypse: Season Two DVD release with a comprehensive marketing campaign including 30-second on-air spots on Adult Swim and online ads on various comic, entertainment, and underground sites.

Dethklok Co-Creator Talks Audience And More

Christopher Porter, entertainment editor of the Washington Post Express, recently conducted an interview with "Metalocalypse"/DETHKLOK co-creator Brendon Small. An excerpt from the chat follows:

Washington Post Express: How do you write a show that has super-specific in-jokes for the metalhead community — and the black- and death-metal fans in particular — while still appealing to the general viewer who doesn't know the Finntroll supermarket refers to a Finnish folk-metal group?

Small: We don't think of the bigger audience or anything. We just think me and Tommy; we just think about what we'd like to see in the show. If it's broad, it's because we think it makes sense with the story or the characters. If it's super specific, it's because we think it makes sense. We don't try to anticipate what an audience will think; we just do what we think will be cool.

Washington Post Express: Even when you pitched the show to Adult Swim, you didn't worry about making sure you appealed to non-metal fans?

Small: To their credit, they know a little bit about [metal]. Most people know a little about the idea of Norwegian metal — they don't know much more. They didn't know bands, they don't really listen to them. With Adult Swim, yeah, we had to educate a few people; a few people knew some stuff. But at the end of the day, they pretty much leave us alone. They don't ask us to throw in more or less BURZUM references. They just want to make sure the show works. And we're happy being creative, then they let us do our thing.

Washington Post Express: How did you come up with "Metalocalypse" — it's quite a change from your previous animated series, "Home Movies"?

Small: The laws of "Home Movies" functioned very differently from this show. That's one of the reasons this show exists: "Home Movies" was a very low-key, dry, dialogue-driven, spacious kinda comedy — like, manners-based humor. I wanted this to be the polar opposite. Plus, I really like metal. I really like playing guitar — and now I have an excuse to play guitar and be very happy. [Tommy Blacha] and I, we'd wind up at some crappy comedy parties and we'd just sit and talk about metal for a long time and not talk to anybody else. And he would be the only one who would go see metal shows with me. We'd go see CANNIBAL CORPSE and NILE and BEHEMOTH, stuff like that. Meanwhile, we were sitting around pitching some other shows. I think I had some crappy deal at SciFi network that was being elongated forever. And we were just commiserating. Then at one point I talked to my buddy from [the Adult Swim show] "The Venture Brothers", Jackson Publick, and I was telling him about this sketch that me and Tommy did. We did a live show at one point where we compared CANNIBAL CORPSE and "Glengarry Glen Ross". And I can't believe I had to be told this, but my buddy Jack said, "We aren't you doing that as a show?" And I was, like, "I can't believe I didn't figure that out." So, it wasn't going to be CANNIBAL CORPSE meets "Glengarry Glen Ross" with a guy looking for leads. But there was a show there. I also wrote all the music for "Home Movies". After "Home Movies", [Adult Swim/Cartoon Network] requested, "Come back when you have another idea. And if you have one that's a musical idea, even better."
