DETHKLOK and METALOCALYPSE are back!
It has been 11 years since the release of Dethalbum III, 10 years since the release of The Doomstar Requiem, and 10 years since Metalocalypse last aired.
There have been small talks of a new Metalocalypse movie and new Dethklok music in the works, and as of today, we have official news on everything.
Coming later this year, the new Metalocalypse movie, titled Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar, will be released; the film is written and directed by show creator Brendon Small. Alongside the release of the movie, there will also be a companion soundtrack.
Per a press release associated with this news, the film’s premise is as follows:
“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?”
But that’s not all, for Dethklok will also be releasing a new album later this year as well, that record being Dethalbum IV.
And how about some more awesome news? Because Dethklok will be hitting the road for a new North American tour starting this August, featuring support from Babymetal. Ticket information and VIP packages can be found at thebabykloktour.com; tour dates can be found below as well.
No official release dates have been shared at this time, so absolutely keep a look out for updates as they arrive. 2023 is going to be an amazing year for fans of Metalocalypse and Dethklok. Speaking about all this exciting news, Small shares the following:
“It’s very surreal having so much new ‘Metalocalypse’ & DETHKLOK this year with the trifecta of the tour, movie and album. I’m so excited to get on the road with the powerful BABYMETAL, and to celebrate all the hard work that team ‘Metalocalypse’ and DETHKLOK put in over the last two years and beyond!”
It’s awesome to have the band back.
