KING PARROT: Australian Thrash Grind Miscreants Announce Additional North American Tour Dates

After dismantling California and laying waste to the ears and eyes of talent scouts at SXSW, Australian thrash grind miscreants, KING PARROT, have added more dates to their already extensive North American tour this March and April. Metal Injection named KING PARROT one of the top three bands at SXSW 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.”

After overwhelmingly positive responses from SXSW, US fans can expect to see the band back on US soil very soon. In the meantime check out the remaining dates on the US tour and get along to see the power-de-force that is KING PARROT as it storms 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…” –

“…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
