It looks like the summer is about to get much more “BRUTAL!” If you watched last night’s new episode of Metalocalypse, you might have noticed an Adult Swim plug directly afterward that confirmed a rumor that has been floating around the internet for a while. Dethklok will co-headline an extensive summer tour of North America with Lamb of God! Lambgoat.com is also reporting that the French progressive metal band Gojira will be providing direct tour support as well.

Dethklok live

Look for tickets to likely go on sale this week. I am not normally one to attend big venue shows so much these days, but I will make an exception for this lineup. If you have never seen Dethklok live before, I highly recommend it. The show is an absolutely blistering, multimedia face-melter, and one not to be missed. See you in the pit. Until then, don’t forget to check out the new season ofMetalocalypse, on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim at 12:15am Sunday night/Monday mornings.
