Dethklok, the house band on Metalocalypse, have announced they'll be heading out on tour in the upcoming months. The 31-date romp is in support of their upcoming release, Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III. It begins on October 30 in Norfolk, VA, and will make its way all over North America, hitting up all the usual suspects in the East, West, Midwest, and South. The tour finale is on December 8 in Atlanta, GA. Dethklok had travel plans with Lamb of God earlier this year, before the band's frontman had to pull out due to legal troubles.
Dethklok got their start as ... ahem ... cartoons, as the house band featured on Adult Swim's "Metalocalypse" show. As the show gained popularity, so did the band, and creator Brendon Small recruited three more members to perform the music live. The first official Dethklok album was released in 2007, and debuted at No. 21 on Billboard's Top 200 list. Not so bad for an animated band. Be sure to check these guys out "in the flesh" as they make their way across the United States this fall.
