Dethklok, the animated band from Adult Swim's ‘Metalocalypse’, will embark on a North American headlining tour this fall. Support on the trek will come from Machine Head, All That Remains and The Black Dahlia Murder. The tour will kick off on October 30 in Norfolk, Virginia and will run through December.
Dethklok returns this fall with ‘Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III’ the highly anticipated album that ‘fans of the animated band have been begging for. The stars of the Adult Swim series ‘Metalocalypse’ will unleash 12 brand new tracks, set to hit stores throughout North America on October 16 from Williams Street Records.
‘Dethalbum III’ was once again co-produced by ‘Metalocalypse’ co-creator Brendon Small and Dethklok producer Ulrich Wild (‘Dethalbum’ and ‘Dethalbum II’). The cover art was also illustrated by ‘Dethalbum’ and ‘Dethalbum II’ cover artist Antonio Canobbio.
‘Dethalbum III’ will not only be released in its original CD and digital format, but also as a deluxe-edition CD/DVD and a clean version of the CD. The deluxe-edition CD/DVD will include a 32-minute behind-the-scenes documentary of the making of ‘Dethalbum III’ as well as music videos and much more. A vinyl edition of the album with special etching will be released on November 6.
Machine Head recently filmed a video for the song ‘Darkness Within’ in the Czech Republic. The track comes off the band's new album, "Unto The Locust", which sold more than 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart — putting Machine Head in the Top 25 for the first time in the band's 17-year history.
Machine Head is currently seeking a new label home following the expiration of the band's contract with longtime record company Roadrunner Records.
Machine Head 's unauthorized biography, ‘Inside The Machine’, is set for worldwide release on October 15 by Omnibus Press. The author, Joel McIver, has previously written books about and in co-operation with artists such as Slayer, Tool, Motorhead, Black Sabbath and many other rock and metal legends, including the bestselling 2004 volume ‘Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica.’ The book features a foreword by ex-Machine Head drummer Chris Kontos.
