Dethklok Announce 2023 Tour and Albums, Metalocalypse Movie Coming Soon


The wait is finally over—Dethklok have returned and we’re getting a tour with Babymetal and new movie Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar, plus a companion soundtrack and long-awaited new Dethklok album, Dethalbum IV.

The festivities get underway on August 30, when Dethklok—the brainchild of Metalocalypse creator Brendon Small—and Babymetal kick off their 29-date North American tour, covering most of the US and Canada. As for the film, we don’t have many details or a release date yet, but we can confirm that Army of the Doomstar will feature appearances from Thundercat, King Diamond, Mark Hamill, Kirk Hammett, Scott Ian, Amy Lee and more. The official description:

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. Can Nathan Explosion look beyond his brutally damaged ego to save his band, stop the Metalocalypse, and finally face the ultimate evil: Salacia?

No word on when we’ll get the soundtrack or Dethalbum IV yet either, but we’re told it’s all coming in 2023, so it’s high time to start your rewatches.
