KING PARROT: Australian Return To North America This March, Supporting Weedeater

Australian thrash grind miscreants, King Parrot, will return to the stage this March on another North American rash of live devastations. Slated to embark on March 21st in Austin, Texas, King Parrot will march through two-dozen cities supporting bong metal perpetrators, Weedeater, with the passage coming to a close on April 18th in Wilmington, North Carolina. The Metal Injection-sponsored tour follows the band’s ten-date run through Europe (also supporting team Weedeater).

Declares the band, “We’re honored to be heading out with the legendary Weedeater. We’ve heard only awesome reports about this great band live, and we can’t wait to have our own chapter in the folklore of Dixie Dave and company. All the people working behind the scenes on this tour have been excited about pairing our bands for some time, so I’m sure this will be one for the ages! Expect all the crazy shit you would at a high octane punk or metal show, and then times it by ten, as I’m positive both bands will bring their proverbial A game. I’ve heard from people around the country, ‘If there’s anyone crazier than King Parrot, it’s Weedeater.’ We’ll be out to prove them wrong! We’ll also be playing a swag of songs from our new album to be released mid-year, so come get a sample of what we have in store.”

King Parrot released their Bite Your Head Off full-length via Candlelight Records in 2013 and have been road-bound ever since, waging their sonic brutality and live antics upon unsuspecting eyes and ears both stateside and abroad. Championed for its, “dark, black humor,’ and accurately dubbed, “raucous, uncouth, rude, scatological and completely compelling,” by This Is Not A Scene, Bite Your Head Off was produced by Jason Fuller (Blood Duster, Dern Rutlidge) and Adam Calaitzis (Damaged, Abramelin) and manages to capture the raw intensity of their furious live assault, defying genres with a cross section attack of thrash, grind, punk and hardcore.

“A nice little cross-up of musical ability and amusing visuals (the videos for ‘Dead End’ and ‘Shit On The Liver’ are quality viewing), King Parrot should be able to find their place in a relatively stale and average grind scene. And frankly, thaty’s what grind needs: A shot in the arm, a mix-up, and some well-intended goofiness… this should do it. 8.5/10″ – Dead Rhetoric

“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

KING PARROT: Visits Housecore HQ; Video Posted + North American Takeover Continues

Currently on a conquest to shred the collective ears of North America, the thrash grind hooligans in King Parrot recently dropped by Housecore Records during their tour stop in New Orleans last week. The band systematically leveled Siberia following a chat with metal legends Philip H. Anselmo and Mike IX Williams about touring, new records, guitar lessons, and burning holes in the ground in the swamps of Louisiana!

King Parrot are only approaching the half-way mark of their live invasion and have a plethora of shows coming up all around the US and Canada. Additionally, the band will be returning to California by popular demand after laying waste to venues with Cattle Decapitation earlier this month.

“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

 

KING PARROT: Australian Thrash Grind Assassins Level SXSW; March Through North America Continues

Melbourne thrash grind assassins, King Parrot, successfully leveled SXSW with five scathing performances, including an appearance at this year’s Tone Deaf Touring Showcase featuring Spirit Caravan, Iron Reagan, Pilgrim and more.

Comments the band, “King Parrot had an awesome experience at SXSW; total chaos, but all in all a hugely positive opportunity for the band to get out in front the world’s music industry and show our wares. The feedback we received from some industry heavyweights was that they enjoyed our show and it’s fair to say you’ll be hearing a lot more from King Parrot in the future. For now though, we carry on with our extensive North American tour.”

King Parrot is currently searing the eyes and ears of North America on a near-six-week run of live ambushes. The band is joined by atmospheric blackened doom bringers, Vattnet Viskar, and stoner death doomers, Vaporizer on select dates.
