Metalocalypse Movie and Dethklok North America Tour Announced

Metalocalypse band Dethklok to tour with Babymetal.

Metalocalypse Dethklok band announced 2023 tour.

Adult Swim’s favorite heavy metal series, “Metalocalypse,” has announced a Dethklock tour. A nationwide tour of the series’ on-screen band Dethklok will kick off on August 30 with Japanese kawaii metal pioneers Babymetal as co-headliners and virtuoso guitarist Jason Richardson as support. An original full-length film, written and directed by Brendon Small, “Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar,” a companion soundtrack, and “Dethalbum IV” will also arrive this year.

“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!”

Brendan Small

Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar,” an original full-length movie, is also coming. It was written and directed by Brendon Small. It stars Small, Tommy Blacha, Victor Brand, Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner, King Diamond, Mark Hamill, Kirk Hammett, Jon Hamm, and Amy Lee. Also featured are Malcolm McDowell, Juliet Mills, Laraine Newman, Raya Yarbrough, and Livia Zita.


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?
