King Parrot

After emerging through the baptism of fire of the Melbourne metal scene, King Parrot have pillaged their way to international recognition in a short period since beginning in 2010. The band’s notoriety began with their hell-raising live show, full of energy, ferocity and hilarity confronting and entertaining audiences, raising eyebrows and beer mugs alike. Drawing influence primarily from the thrash, grind, hardcore and punk scenes of the ’80s and ’90s, a new sound was created fusing those styles and attitudes with a fresh approach that encapsulates their aggression, humor and intensity seamlessly.

Their debut album Bite Your Head Off was picked up by UK based legendary metal label Candlelight Records in 2013 for worldwide release and the band hasn’t looked back. Five videos from their debut album have been released including ‘Shit on the Liver’; a finalist in the Australian Music Video Awards and the bands take on the cult film The Shining for the track ‘Dead End’. After a solid 12 months on the road solidifying the bands presence in their homeland, King Parrot were invited to perform at SXSW in Texas in March 2014. They coupled this with an extensive 45 date North American tour, which saw them land a management deal with Extreme Management Group in New York.

After supporting some of the worlds best metal acts like Obituary, Testament, Kvelertak and Carcass and drawing praise from the likes of Phil Anselmo and Chuck Billy, its easy to see why they’re making a name for themselves. They’ve now solidified themselves at the top of the heap of extreme bands in Australia after scoring spot on the 2014 Soundwave line-up, winning The Age Newspaper – Best Heavy Album Award and The Cherry Bar/Jagermeister Act of the Year award in 2013. Their debut album has received rave reviews the world over, and with a sound and live performance they can uniquely call their own, King Parrot have set their sights on the jugular of the world and hopefully know one gets in their way.
