It’s been five long years since Dethklok — the real-life incarnation of Metalocalypse’s far-beyond-brutal animated band — played their last live show, at Festival Supreme in 2014 in Los Angeles. Today, news comes that the draught is about to come to an end: The group, helmed by Metalocalypse creator and singer-shredder Brendon Small and Testament drummer extraordinaire Gene Hoglan, is set to headline the second annual Adult Swim Festival in L.A. this fall. A two-day event, Adult Swim fest is scheduled to throw down Friday, November 15th and Saturday, November 16 at Los Angeles’ newest concert venue Banc of California Stadium. Tickets for the fest — which are priced at $49 and up — will go on sale to the public today at 12 p.m. PST.
Dethklok won’t be the only heavy band bringing the mosh-pit madness to Adult Swim fest this year. Crossover thrashers Iron Reagan, electronic-noise-rock mad men HEALTH and death-doom crushers Inter Arma are also lined up to play, as well as a slew of less-headbang-friendly musicians including Jamie xx, Vince Staples, Young Thug, Captain Murphy, Tierra Whack and Lil Nas X. Adult Swim Festival 2019 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, Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal), exclusive talent appearances, panels, meet and greets, merchandise, games and more.
