Dethklok Save the Planet

Summer 2023

Dethklok Save the Planet

Exactly when the world could use a better messiah, Dethklok saves us from one more summer of less-than-brutal entertainment.

With Japanese kawaii metal band Babymetal and virtuoso guitarist Jason Richardson, Dethklok kick off The Babyklok Tour 2023: 29 shows, beginning August 30 in Houston, swiftly heading to the super summer-friendly heatsink of Florida thereafter, and on to all points beyond through October 11, where the tour wraps up in L.A.

The band also features in Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar, an original, full-length, animated movie written and directed by Metalocalypse co-creator Brendon Small and produced by Titmouse, Adult Swim, and Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment. Starring Small, Tommy Blacha, Victor Brandt, Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner, King Diamond, Mark Hamill, Kirk Hammett, Jon Hamm, Scott Ian, Amy Lee, Malcolm McDowell, Juliet Mills, Laraine Newman, Raya Yarbrough, and Livia Zita, the film promises yet another ULTIMATE challenge to SAVE THE PLANET despite the haplessly famous characters’ wrecked egos.

To round out the year, WaterTower Music will release two albums: Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) and Dethalbum IV around the launch of the film later this year.

Are a national tour, superstar-studded film, and two brutal albums enough Dethklok for one terribly promising year? Probably not.
