The long-awaited return of Adult Swim’s favorite heavy metal adventure “Metalocalypse” arrives with a nationwide tour of the series’ on-screen band Dethklok. A full-length original film, written and directed by Brendon Small, “Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar,” a companion soundtrack, and “Dethalbum IV” will also arrive this year. Dethklok will kick off their twenty-nine-date national tour on August 30 with Japanese kawaii metal pioneers BABYMETAL as co-headliners and virtuoso guitarist Jason Richardson (All That Remains) as support. Ticket information and VIP packages can be found at the link below.
For a band that hasn’t changed their sound much over the course of almost twenty years, Pennsylvania quintet August Burns Red miraculously continues to stay not only relevant but one of the most widely respected acts in modern metal.
Ending speculation by fans and misinformation in the press, All That Remains have formally announced Jason Richardson (ex-Born of Osiris, ex-Chelsea Grin) as their new full-time guitarist. The band released a statement via social media after a recent interview and press coverage misquoted the band as saying they were not ready to name a replacement. Richardson had filled in for the band as a temp performer on their most recent tour of Europe with Sevendust. Richardson steps in for Oli Herbert who died on October 17th of 2018. The band released their new album just a few weeks later, Victim of a New Disease via the Razor & Tie label. We wish Jason the best of luck! Continue reading →
