Video Clip For New Song “Piss Wreck” Posted By King Parrot

This Friday, Australian grind practitioners King Parrot will unleash the maniacal fruit of their “Ugly Produce” full-length. Slated for release on September 22nd in North America via Housecore Records, in Europe via Agonia Records and in Australia via EVP Recordings, “Ugly Produce” is a ten-track feast of distinctively punishing and powerful anthems. Recorded at the infamous Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia and produced by Blood Duster’s Jason Fuller, this is no walk in the park on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Ugly Produce is a twisted, cantankerous ride through an outback graveyard, high on PCP, wreaking of animal feculence.

In advance of this week’s release, the band has unsheathed a hilarious new video clip for “Piss Wreck” viewable in the player at the bottom.

“Ugly Produce” will see release on CD, digital, and vinyl formats. Pre-orders are currently available at the official King Parrot website over here. Digital preorders – which come with an instant download of “Ten Pounds Of Shit In A Five Pound Bag” – are available via Apple Music and iTunes.

“Ugly Produce” fuses the raw fury of King Parrot’s critically-lauded debut album “Bite Your Head Off” and mashes it with the twisted sophistication of the Aria-nominated follow-up “Dead Set.” A repugnant harvest of gnarled and nasty grind, death metal, thrash, and punk rock, the band’s unique, over-the-top sound is ever prevalent and honed further on “Ugly Produce” while remaining true to the fundamental ideals the band started with: angst, aggression, absurdity, and antics.

Superjoint Gearing Up For U.S. Headline Tour Dates

The third leg of Superjoint’s U.S. live invasion will begin on September 22nd in New Orleans, Louisiana. The band will pillage through over two-dozen venues across the country including a stop at this year’s edition of Rock ‘N’ Shock in Worcester, Massachusetts, the trek coming to a close on October 20th in Orlando, Florida.

Superjoint will be joined by DevilDriver with additional support provided by Housecore labelmates Child Bite and King Parrot as well as Cane Hill. Superjoint frontman Philip H. Anselmo comments:

“Do your pushups, take your vitamins, and start some light jogging now, because this is gonna be a hell-of-a-shitload of shows this fall. Olde School rules only. Leave your fashion statement at home or at the door. Individuals unite for one night only at a place near you, and then disperse like wildfire to dry pages. Bring it on, sisters and brothers. Always championing the underdogs of this world and The Underground since 1988! Yours truly, PHA.”

King Parrot Announces European Tour Dates With Decapitated

Australia’s notorious metal villains from King Parrot just revealed European tour plans in support of new studio album, “Ugly Produce/” The band will hit the road with death metal giants Decapitated for a 29-date run (including 10 dates in the U.K. alone) in October and November 2017. Additional support will come from Thy Disease and Venom Prison.

Vocalist Matt “Youngy” Young commented: “We’ve been working hard on our new album down in Australia, and we honestly believe this record is not only a continuation of our trademark sound, but a progression into new territory in terms of songwriting and musicianship. Couple that with the most off the wall videos we have ever produced, and I think we are really onto something with this new release.

“Most importantly we’re excited to bring these new tracks to the European audiences when we tour alongside Polish legends Decapitated through October and November. It will be an awesome and diverse tour package, featuring two bands from different spheres of the extreme metal world, bringing utter chaos to the stage each and every night! Be prepared for more over the top King Parrot absurdity than ever before, we are giving this one our all!”.

King Parrot’s 3rd studio effort will arrive on September 22nd via Agonia Records (Europe), Housecore Records (North America) and Rocket/EVP in the group’s native country.
