DETHKLOK & BABYMETAL Resurrect BABYKLOK for Two-Night Bay Area Event

15th February 2024 0 By Jon Deaux

DETHKLOK returns to American stages with the Mutilation on a Spring Night tour, featuring special guests DragonForce and Nekrogoblikon, and can now reveal a special two-night event with BABYMETAL. The BABYKLOK Tour resumes for two nights only at The Masonic in San Francisco. BABYMETAL and DETHKLOK coheadline, with support from DragonForce on April 24 and Nekrogoblikon on April 25.


DETHKLOK is an illustrated/animated virtual powerhouse, occupying an elite space alongside Gorillaz. Except DETHKLOK is bigger, better, more brutal, and totally legendary.


Last year’s BABYKLOK co-headlining trek was the first DETHKLOK tour in over a decade.


“I had no idea how much fun the BABYKLOK tour would be,” remembers DETHKLOK mastermind and Metalocalypse co-creator Brendon Small. “The BABYMETAL girls are delightful, like three princesses from outer space, great singers, and great dancers. Their band is bonkers good. Being on tour with BABYMETAL was a dream come true. I fell in love with the girls, the band, and their whole crew, and they threw down every night. An amazing group – lightning in a bottle. I’m so excited to share the stage with them, catch up, and hang out. I’m so glad this came together so we can reunite with our great pals.”


DETHKLOK, the world’s most brutal band are the stars of the Metalocalypse TV series and films. Revolver Magazine calls writer, director, and composer Brendon Small the “musical mastermind” behind DETHKLOK. A vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Small has made four DETHKLOK albums and assorted releases with legendary metal drummer Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Death, Testament, Strapping Young Lad).


2023 saw a flurry of activity from the melodic death metal titans. Army of the Doomstar was a sequel to Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem, released in 2013. 2023 also saw the release of the Army of the Doomstar Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Dethalbum IV was the most celebrated album of the band’s career, boasting unstoppable anthems like “Aortic Desecration,” “SOS,” and “Gardener of Vengeance.”


Rolling Stone named Dethalbum IV one of the 11 Best Metal Albums of 2023. “The first DETHKLOK album in more than a decade is totally brutal – and totally worth the wait,” Rolling Stone declared. “Small and Hoglan’s dexterous playing also makes the music stand majestically on its own terms. You don’t need to be in on the joke to jump into the pit and mosh along.”


Adult Swim aired four seasons of Metalocalypse from 2006 to 2013. Premiere global and media entertainment company Warner Bros. Discovery distributes the Metalocalypse series and feature films.


“This is a very fun time with the tour, the album, and the movie. I don’t know if DETHKLOK will be touring forever,” he adds. “So, it’s important for people to know they should get it while it’s hot.”
