Currently, pre-sale tickets are available along with VIP packages. More information and complete location listings are on the official BABYKLOK page.
The real-life Dethklok, created in 2007 for Adult Swim’s animated TV series Metalocalypse, are touring again after performances at Adult Swim Festivals in 2019 and 2022. Plus, they announced a new Metalocalypse film is in the works.
Correspondingly, the “kawaii” metal group BABYMETAL are back from a brief hiatus with a new album, THE OTHER ONE. Additionally, lead performers SU-METAL and MOAMETAL welcome aboard newly minted member MOMOMETAL.
Also, the tour gets support from American guitarist Jason Richardson who has performed with All That Remains, Born of Osiris, and Chelsea Grin.
