After what seems like an eternity, Australia's bastard sons of grind King Parrot have finally announced their much-anticipated return to North America. The band last ventured across the pond back in 2018, and with their latest EP, Holed Up in the Lair, released during the COVID era, the band is ready to hit the road and do what they do best... Destroy stages everywhere across the US as only they know how. Not only will they appear at swag of festival dates, they'll appear alongside Pantera and Lamb of God at select shows on the East Coast as well as touring the rest of the US and Canada.
The band recently completed an Australian tour with old pals Unearth, and have been keeping busy touring throughout Australia since live music resumed. Their 7" EP Holed Up In The Lair released on Housecore Records is a blistering example of what the band is capable of and features guest vocals by Philip Anselmo on the track "Nor Is Yours". The ridiculous animation film clip for the track "Kick Up A Stink" keeps true to the King Parrot theme of absurd videos to accompany their unique and off-kilter take on grindcore, thrash, and punk rock.
Vocalist Matt Young comments on the impending tour, "We couldn't be happier to announce our return to the US and continue the work that we have done over the last decade. It really was our second home before the world stood still for a minute, so to have this opportunity to pick up where we left off is something we are truly grateful for. The honour of getting to play alongside Pantera is something only dreams are made of, and there was no way in hell we were going to turn down that opportunity. Our little old band from Australia has still got a hell of a point to prove, and we have just as much venom in us as the day we first set foot in the US in 2014. We'll see you all this September!"
