After dismantling California and laying waste to the ears and eyes of attendees at SXSW, Australian thrash grind miscreants, KING PARROT, have added additional dates to their already extensive North American tour through April, noted below.
Metal Injection named KING PARROT among the top bands at SXSW this year noting, “these guys came all the way from Australia to blow my mind with their fantastic grind and incredibly hilarious stage banter. These guys wanted a party.” Fans can expect to see the band back on US soil in the not so distant future. In the meantime, check out the remaining dates and get along to witness the audiovisual mayhem that is KING PARROT as they continue their march through North America!

Among Australia’s most lethal and extreme new bands, KING PARROT is touring in support of their Bite Your Head Off full-length released via Candlelight Records last year. Produced by Jason Fuller (Blood Duster, Dern Rutlidge) and Adam Calaitzis (Damaged, Abramelin), the record manages to capture the raw intensity of their live shows, defying genres with a cross section attack of thrash, grind, punk and hardcore.
“I’ve never felt so personally threatened by a record before” – Hysteria Magazine
“…a must for any fans of Australian metal or extreme metal 4/5” – Sputnik Music
“…a calculated piece of extreme art, with strong musicianship and a production job skilfully left just on the right side of raw and dirty…” – Beat.com
“…its ceaseless brutality will do much more than just rip your head off… from start to finish it tears you limb from limb 9/10” – Ghost Cult
“Whether it’s ‘Dead End,’ the shortest, meanest track on the album, or ‘Cold Steel Probe,’ an infectious onslaught of multi-leveled grind that has no qualms about dragging coffins or simply setting them afire, KING PARROT‘s Bite Your Head Off is a no-brainer, comfortably taking a seat next to other 2012 entries like Strong Intention’s Razorblade Express, Mulletcorpse’s Disinfect, and Kess’khtak’s Nurturing Conditions For Rupture. Killer stuff.” – Metal Observer
