Dethklok Announce First Show in Five Years
While it may not be the epic return of Metalocalypse many of us have been wishing for, this is still good news: Dethklok will headline this year’s Adult Swim Festival, which is scheduled to take place Friday, November 15 and Saturday, November 16 at Los Angeles’ Banc of California Stadium. It will be their first show since 2014.
While there are some other metal bands scheduled to appear at the fest — including Iron Reagan and Inter Arma — the bill is predominantly non-metal acts like Jamie xx, Vince Staples, Geto Boys (R.I.P. Bushwick Bill), and Young Thug, amongst others. But, hey, a little musical diversity never hurt anyone.
Plus, there’ll be other cool shit at the fest besides the performances:
“This year’s festival will also have a one-of-a-kind, 360° fan experience with a special never before seen Rick and Morty season four screening on Saturday, a Robot Chicken Intergalatic Power Summit, Squidbillies 10 Man Bunkhouse Stampede, a discussion with Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack,, Star Wars: Clone Wars, Primal), exclusive talent appearances, panels, meet and greets, merchandise, games, and more!”
Tickets go on sale today at noon PST. If you’re just into the metal shit, all three of those bands play the Friday show.
