Dethklok - Tour Line Up Revealed


Dethklok, the virtual death metal band from the cartoon television show Metalocalypse are supporting And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead on a US tour of college campuses this fall, in promotion of the television programming network Adult Swim.

In his latest newsletter, former Zappa guitarist Mike Keneally announces the following:

" (...) and a thing which I can now officially reveal -- that myself, Bryan Beller and drummer Gene Hoglan (also of Strapping Young Lad) will be joining mastermind Brendon Small on the road as the real live Dethklok of Metalocalypse fame -- yep, we are bringing the metal from the TV screen to the stage. Beautiful madness. This is happening late October into November -- don't have an itinerary yet, but stay tuned. My voice can also be heard on several upcoming episodes of Season 2 of Metalocalypse, which airs Sunday night on the Cartoon Network -- don't know when the episodes I'm on are airing so you'll have to watch them all. (...)"

Bassist Bryan Beller confirmed the news in the meantime with the following statement:

"BREAKING NEWS: Bryan Beller to tour with Brendon Small, Mike Keneally and Gene Hoglan as the real-life version of Dethklok, the stars of the animated Cartoon Network "Adult Swim" program Metalocalypse. Click here to read available details, and stay tuned for a Beller blog about how this will all play out. Who's Dethklok, you ask? Do a Google search and start from there..."

It's a bit odd that they're touring with And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead. Is there some connection I'm missing?

MS needs a Dethklok page. I don't care if they're cartoons, the Dethalbum was freaking awesome. It's a loooong shot but I hope they come to play at UAF.

The album is awesome, just like the cartoon! And Marcel, if you attempt to bash them with a review, be sure that I will be making use of the opportunity to make their profile official

@Dr.Rock: the dates are for free

@MUSIC?: Adult Swim plans two such promotional tours, one focusing on hip hop, the other on rock and metal. I don't really understand why it had to be ...Trail of Dead either, but just consider Dethklok to be on a mission to proselytize people to metal - wouldn't make much sense to tour with a metal band then, would it?

Oh, well thats good. I dont think it matters anyways because I doubt it will stop anywhere convieniently close to me (I wouldnt go out of my way to see it.)

I overheard some jock/preppy types talking about the show at school today, I really dont know why theyd like it considering they probably dont understand half of the jokes.

Omg.. How are they going to do it? Like Gorilaz and then have the real musicians out back, or are those musicians mentioned in the article actually standing on stage.. Coz if thats the case, then it isn't really Dethklok, just a bunch of people playing Dethklok music...

"The logistics are being worked on as we speak, but it looks like it's gonna be a real killer, multi-media show." - Gene Hoglan in June


So I don't really know how it's gonna be like, but it definitely won't just be the band playing Dethklok songs. And unless at least half of the crowd dies, it ain't a real Dethklok show anyway
