Dethklok Plot First Tour in 10 Years, Co-Headliner With Babymetal, Promise ‘Dethalbum IV’
Dethklok, the brutal band of Adult Swim's Metalocalypse spearheaded by shredder mastermind Brendon Small, will return to the road this summer for their first proper tour in a decade. The 2023 "BABYKLOK" package finds them trekking across North America with co-headliners Babymetal.
"I'm so excited to get on the road with the powerful Babymetal," Small says, "and to celebrate all the hard work that team Metalocalypse and Dethklok put in over the last two years and beyond!"

Dethklok revealed the tour with Babymetal on Tuesday (April 11) in an announcement that also promised two further Deathklok albums, one of which is a soundtrack to an upcoming Dethklok film, Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar. The non-soundtrack effort is the anticipated Dethalbum IV. Release dates are forthcoming. Read more about those here.
The BABYKLOK tour is Dethklok's first extended live outing in over a decade. Since 2019, Dethklok have played only one show, at 2022's Adult Swim Festival. Their last nationwide tour was in 2012. Get Dethklok concert tickets at this link.
