King Parrot Detail New Album ‘Dead Set’, Announce National Tour

Aussie thrash merchants King Parrot have finally announced details about their new album, which was recorded with the help of former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo. The band’s second full-length effort Dead Set will be released on May 15th.

The album was recorded by Anselmo at his Nodferatu’s Lair studio in New Orleans and, according to a press statement, it showcases a signature King Parrot sound “with high octane grind, thrashing riffs, pummelling beats and punk rock mayhem”.

The news comes as King Parrot announce a national tour set to kick off this May and stretch into June. They’ll play most capital cities as well as a string of regional centres.

To tide fans over until the tour and the album release date, King Parrot have unveiled the new video for Like A Rat, featuring none other than Phil Anselmo himself waking up in bed next to King Parrot bassist Slatts.
