Australian grind unit KING PARROT will return to the States next month on a near month-long journey supporting labelmates Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals. Set to commence September 6th in New Orleans, Louisiana, the trek includes a slot at this year’s edition of Berserker Fest on September 28th in Pontiac, Michigan. See all confirmed dates below.
Comments vocalist Matt Young. “We’re coming back to the US! This will be our only tour in the US this year and with none other than Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals! Since we were last in the States, we’ve done Europe, Japan, and most recently a mega Australian tour with Child Bite. We always love the chance to tour with our Housecore family and hitting the road with The Illegals will be a first for both of us. Our new record Ugly Produce is out now on Housecore and getting an awesome reception. Wrap your ears around it and then get out to one of these shows. It’s gonna be an absolute blast!”

KING PARROT dropped their brutalizing Ugly Produce full-length upon the masses in North America last fall via Housecore Records. Captured at the infamous Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia and produced by Blood Duster’s Jason Fuller, the record continues to reap critical accolades for its deliciously repugnant fusion of raw, gnarled and nasty grind, death, thrash, and punk. Fittingly crowned, “…deranged and exceptionally catchy…,” in an 8/10 review by Decibel Magazine, Ugly Produce is no walk in the park on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It’s is a twisted, cantankerous ride through an outback graveyard, high on PCP, wreaking of animal feculence and it slays!

Ugly Produce is out now on CD, digital, and vinyl formats. Nab yours today at the official KING PARROT website HERE.
“…deranged and exceptionally catchy…” – Decibel Magazine
“Smashing blazing hardcore into furious thrash metal with the impact of a high-speed collision, Ugly Produce is a visceral ball of fury wrapped in sarcasm and grime that’s both terrifying and hilarious at the same time.” – Rolling Stone Australia
“You haven’t lived a full and robust life until you’ve paid witness to the unhinged energy its members convey, the between-song banter which oozes cutting, Down Under humor and bassist Wayne ‘Slatts Slattz’ Slattery’s shit-eating grin and his making ‘come hithe’r eyes at his instrument like he’s trying to seduce it into some back alley rumpy-pumpy…” – Metal Injection
“KING PARROT‘s strongest release to date. This is groovy, gnarly hate music.” — Itdjents
“Ugly Produce is one of those works of music that gives off a physical feeling. In the case of KING PARROT, that feeling is a layer of clammy, salty, dirty sweat that gets one’s skin to stick together. That description might not sell a lot of things in life, but it sure as hell sells the work of KING PARROT, for their third LP is an utter blast of ridiculous. Taking elements of death, grind, thrash, and punk, there is no taking it easy when listening to each of the ten tracks that the band lays out.” – New Noise Magazine
“This album is packed with ten tracks geared to terrorize. Each song bristles with intensity and an undercurrent of insanity. The total package reeks of the pungent stench of sweat soaked hardcore music.” – Metal Wani
“The album has attitude, and it’s an attitude that doesn’t feel forced or contrived. Every one of Matt Young’s screamed lyrics feels sincere which certainly adds to the sense of legitimacy. Established fans will certainly lap this album up; it has everything you’d want from a KING PARROT release. On the flip side, people who have struggled to see what the fuss is about to date will find this album to be a more focused and compelling listen than anything the band has released previously.” – Amnplify
