Dethklok & ‘Metalocalypse’ return with new tour, album & film on the way

Adult animated television series ‘Metalocalypse,’ which was created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha over 15 years ago, has officially returned. A full-length original film, written and directed by Small, dubbed ‘Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar’ is set to premiere later this year.

Featuring the fictional melodic death metal band Dethklok, the flick is being produced by Titmouse, Adult Swim, and Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment. The effort is set to star Small and Blacha, along with Victor Brandt (‘The Cat in the Hat’), Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner, King Diamond (Mercyful Fate), Mark Hamill (‘Batman: The Animated Series,’ ‘The Machine’), Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Jon Hamm (‘Confess, Fletch,’ ‘Top Gun: Maverick’), Scott Ian (Anthrax), Amy Lee (Evanescence), Malcolm McDowell (‘A Clockwork Orange’), Juliet Mills (‘Passions’), Laraine Newman (‘Saturday Night Live’), Raya Yarbrough (‘La La Land’), and Livia Zita (King Diamond).

The all-new animated movie begins after the heroic rescue of Toki Wartooth; DETHKLOK frontman Nathan Explosion finds himself traumatized in a BRUTAL professional and romantic flat-spin, all while he is tasked with fulfilling the prophecy and confronting the ultimate songwriting challenge to save the planet,” notes a presser. “Can Nathan Explosion look beyond his brutally damaged ego to save his band, stop the Metalocalypse, and finally face the ultimate evil: Salacia?

The upcoming movie will be accompanied by two full-length albums this year: ‘Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)’ via WaterTower Music, and a brand-new Dethklok record titled ‘Dethalbum IV.’

In addition, the live touring incarnation of Dethklok – spearheaded by Small (vocalist, guitarist), and also featuring Gene Hoglan (drums) and more – are set to hook up with Japanese metallers Babymetal for a 29-date co-headlining national tour being called the ‘BABYKLOK’ tour. The trek will see support from virtuoso guitarist Jason Richardson.

It’s very surreal having so much new ‘Metalocalypse’ & DETHKLOK this year with the trifecta of the tour, movie and album,” comments Small. “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!

The incoming outing will also include stops at ‘Blue Ridge Rock Festival’ in Alton, VA on September 10th, ‘Louder Than Life’ in Louisville, KY on September 23rd, and ‘Aftershock’ in Sacramento, CA on October 7th. See all upcoming shows below. Tickets are available through
