Things continue to heat up for Dethklok and the Metalocalypse universe. Now, the band has announced a headlining appearance at this year’s Adult Swim Festival Block Party, marking their first live performance in three years.
The festival will be held from Aug. 5 through Aug. 7 at The Fillmore, The Foundry, Punch Line and Brooklyn Bowl, all in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with Dethklok tapped as the headliner for the first night, while Run the Jewels and Tierra Whack will close out the remaining two days.
Dethklok, led by Metalocalypse visionary Brendon Small, who takes the role of vocalist and guitarist in the live incarnation of the group, have only performed two shows since 2012 — one in 2014 and another in 2019, the latter also being an Adult Swim Fest gig. With a new Metalocalypse movie in the works as well as new music from Dethklok, per drummer Gene Hoglan earlier this year, perhaps this will see the band hit the stage with more regularity in the near future.
