Australia’s bastard sons of grind KING PARROT have announced their return to North America beginning late next month!

KING PARROT last ventured across the pond back in 2018 and have been toiling away in Australia until the right moment to invade again. Having unleashed their latest EP, Holed Up In The Lair, during the Covid era, the band are ready to hit the road and do what they do best: Demolish stages as only KING PARROT knows how! 

Not only will they appear at festivals like Full Terror Assault and RPM Fest, they’ll also play alongside metal legends Pantera and Lamb Of God at five massive shows on the East Coast as well as seven shows with stoner giants Weedeater and a slew of headlining dates around the rest of the US and Canada.

Vocalist Matt Young comments, “It’s bloody satisfying to announce our return to North America and continue the work that we have done over the last decade. It really was our second home before the world stood still for a minute, so to have this opportunity to pick up where we left off is something we are truly grateful for. The honor of supporting Pantera is something we don’t take lightly, and there was no way in hell we were going to turn that down. KING PARROT has a hell of a point to prove, and we have just as much venom in us as the day we first set foot on US soil in 2014. We’ll see you all on the road real soon, so prepare for carnage in the pit!”

KING PARROT has been keeping busy touring throughout Australia in support of Holed Up In The Lair, a blistering example of what the band is truly capable of and showcases a fresh sound from the band while staying true to their roots. The animation video for the track “Kick Up A Stink” rolls through in typical KING PARROT style; absurd, hilarious and ridiculous and is the perfect accompaniment to their unique and off-kilter amalgamation of grindcore, thrash and punk rock.
