Australian grind/thrash spectacular King Parrot have quite literally blown up over the last two years. Following successful tours throughout Australia with bands like Cattle Decapitation, Obituary, Carcass, and Thy Art is Murder, the band has recently taken the rest of the world by storm, having toured Asia, Europe and America showing absolutely no signs of letting up. The band have recently signed to multiple record labels, and subsequently announced the upcoming release of their second album, Dead Set, due out May 15.

Produced by Phil Anselmo at his studio, Nosferatu’s Lair, this album looks to more accurately showcase the experience that such a band provides. The visceral intensity of the band’s live performance was somewhat lost on their debut, Bite Your Head Off, suffering from a song-by-song production style which seemed to kill any sense of continuity or immersion. King Parrot are just about to begin their North American tour with Weedeater, but will be returning to Australia for their album launch tour in May. Check out the tour dates and the first taste of the new album, Like a Rat, below.
