DETHKLOK, CHIMAIRA, SOILENT GREEN: Complete Tour Details Revealed

This summer, DETHKLOK, the animated band from Adult Swim's "Metalocalypse", hits the road on a 28-city headlining tour kicking off June 2 in Portland, along with two of metal's top acts, CHIMAIRA and SOILENT GREEN. Tickets to the five-week tour will go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 18 through Ticketmaster, but a special pre-sale offer will be made available one week earlier to the most brutal Adult Swim fans. On Sunday, April 13, Adult Swim fans tuning in to "Metalocalypse" during the 12:00 a.m. (ET/PT) showing will be given a pre-sale password allowing them access to a customized DETHKLOK page on Ticketmaster's web site. Immediately after receiving the password, fans can purchase tickets, which range in price from $20 to $25. The password will also be made available to fans on AdultSwim.com beginning Monday, April 14.

This major tour starring the five band members from Adult Swim's "Metalocalypse" Nathan Explosion, William Murderface, Skwisgaar Swigelf, Toki Wartooth and Pickles comes on the heels of an incredibly successful fall for the band. In its first time touring, DETHKLOK opened for AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF DEAD in a 12-city college tour that did not disappoint. Released in conjunction with the tour was the band's first album, "Dethklok: The Dethalbum", which debuted at #21 on The Billboard 200 during its first week of release, making it the highest-charting death metal album ever. More than 195,000 copies of "Dethklok: The Dethalbum" have been sold to date, and more than 120,000 copies of the "Metalocalypse: Season 1" DVD from Warner Home Video have been sold since its release in October 2007.

"I predict that this show will be, without a doubt, the best animated death metal tour in recorded history," said Brendon Small, creator and most metal member of DETHKLOK.
