WATCH THE NEW VIDEO FOR "KICK UP A STINK" NOW:

King Parrot have just released their scorching new 7-inch EP "Holed Up In The Lair" and in true KP fashion, it's accompanied with a killer new music video for the track "Kick Up A Stink" to go with it. King Parrot have a fierce reputation for delivering highly engaging, original and at times downright twisted music videos. Playing off the ragtag bunch of characters that make up the band, it always makes for compelling viewing.

This time around the boys are created as animes with the exceptionally talented artist Mike Foxall providing the incredible and downright hilarious animation. Usual suspect/cult hero Slatts Everyday finds himself in a dilemma after running out of bog roll. Chaos ensues as he becomes entwined in a shitty situation', with a tongue in cheek jibe at the state of the world's current affairs. Matt Young states:

"When the opportunity arose to work with Mike Foxall on a new video we couldn't pass it up. We were already fans of his artwork and his videos are awesome. His style meshes seamlessly with what we do, so it made sense to get this collaboration underway. The result speaks for itself, another chapter of King Parrot absurdity".

We won't say too much more about it, but once again King Parrot don't disappoint. Watch the clip and witness the wizardry of cinematography for yourself.

King Parrot release new single "Banished, Flawed then Docile"
& announce new EP "Holed up in the Lair".
Out through Dead Set Records + Artist First

Australia's maniac sons, King Parrot, are back with a blistering new track called "Banished, Flawed the Docile", and it's an absolute screamer. Delivering their uncompromising brand of thrashy, punked-out grindcore chaos, this is just the first taste off their soon to be released EP entitled "Holed up in the Lair". With King Parrot being the forever marching forward road dogs and now being three albums deep having toured the band extensively throughout the world since the release of their debut album "Bite Your Head' off back in 2012. It's not surprising to find out they had a 4 Track EP they recorded in Louisiana USA, just sitting in their sock drawer waiting to be released, I mean, who else can say that right?

We're told, the EP was recorded during some time off between tours, the intention was simple "4 days, four tracks, write em', record em' and be done with it"... and with this being the first taste of the results, we're pretty keen to hear the rest. This four-day writing and recording session was guided by engineer Steve "Big Fella" Berrigan, a man who has worked on records for Down, EYEHATEGOD, Superjoint, Warbeast, Child Bite and Philip H Anselmo and The Illegals. The crew smashed it out within the super tight schedule while recording at Nodferatus Lair in Louisiana in late 2017. It definitely has that production style and feel that NOLA has become known for, while still remaining unapologetically King Parrot through and through. These songs have been sitting unreleased since 2017, lying dormant, lurking, waiting, until now.

After recently remixing and mastering the tracks, and with the world in such turmoil, King Parrot have decided to share with us these rare and raw balls to the wall recordings. This recording not only giving us some new King Parrot tunes to blast our heads off, but it's also grants us a glimpse of what they can do, so seemingly effortlessly at the drop of a hat. King Parrot gets thrown into a studio randomly with no songs written on some days off while touring and we end up with some golden nuggets. It really is a great insight into how quickly these guys can pull together some killer tunes and a great example of what a super tight band can do. This is what you get from years of touring, tons of shows and countless hours of writing together. You get a beast of a band that works so well and has the capability to create great music out of nothing. And lucky for us, especially those who get in quick, King Parrot have decided on releasing a limited edition 7" record of only 1000 copies available worldwide. The EP will be available from all the usual streaming platforms, but you'd want to be quick to get in on one of these limited 7" vinyl packs.

Here's what King Parrot vocalist, Matt Young had to say about the release:
"Usually King Parrot always try to write music together in the same room, but that just hasn't been possible for us because of the lockdown. We were planning on re-working these tracks for a new album eventually, but when all the restrictions came about, we thought "Why not get these tracks out there as a special limited edition 7" release?". We think King Parrot fans will be happy with these tracks, it's rude, loud, fast and grimey and we poured our heart and soul into them; there's no doubting its unabashedly KP!"

Kings Parrots EP "Holed Up In The Lair" drops on October 9th and will be available through all online platforms. If you want to get your hands on some vinyl then you'd better be quick, pre-sales are up now for their limited run of only 1000 7" Vinyl pressing available worldwide.

Thrash Blast Grind Tour - Australia / New Zealand May 21 - 31, 2020
KING PARROT + EXHUMED (USA)
with special guests: KING + THEORIES (USA)

THRASH BLAST GRIND TOUR is back to appease the never-ending bloodthirsty hunger of metal heads all over Australia and New Zealand this coming May!

This year sees KING PARROT celebrating their 10th anniversary as a band and what better way to do it than headlining the ever-evolving Thrash Blast Grind tour alongside Exhumed, KING and Theories. Like a pitchfork to the skull King Parrot will tear through your eyes, ears and brain with their well renowned reckless and savage live shows.

It's been a long time coming, but EXHUMED are finally back with their ghastly and gore drenched death metal formula. With their new album 'Horror', Exhumed, through their sonic meat grinder continue to churn out the repulsive and splattered chunks of aural carnage they are known for.

Melbourne's melancholic blackened metal force, KING, bring the spirit of old while carving a new path. Epic while remaining raw, majestic while retaining a primitive atmosphere. Released late last year, the new album COLDEST OF COLD forges black metal of the most monumental scale.

Chopping out their own grisly niche, THEORIES bring an intense and inscrutable sound to the Thrash Blast Grind table. Arising from the USA, this three headed chaos outfit will outstrip the under prepared right from the get go.

King Parrot joined by Dead Kelly onstage for first ever live appearance!

KP&DK

A lucky crowd of heavy music fans in Maroochydore were treated to a rare and unique experience on Friday night at the Solbar. Melbourne grindcore maniacs King Parrot, who are currently on their Regional Rampage tour around Australia, were joined by none other than Dead Kelly for their first ever appearance live onstage. Dead Kelly members 'Pine Cone Throat' and 'Stanley Knife' joined King Parrot for a stellar rendition of the classic KP track 'Shit on the Liver'. A stage invasion by the crowd ensued and both King Parrot and Dead Kelly members made the most of a photo opportunity with the audience members. Dead Kelly's rise to popularity in recent years has been a result of their epic animated video series "The Legend of Borry", extraordinary musicality and the development of cult members Pine Cone Throat and Stanley Knife.

King Parrot are currently on their Regional Rampage tour through Australia with US hardcore punks Child Bite. The tour has been drawing great numbers through the regional areas of Victoria, NSW and Queensland as King Parrot promote their latest release Ugly Produce that peaked at number 21 on the ARIA charts.

Earlier in the year King Parrot and Dead Kelly hinted at a possible collaboration as vocalist Matt Young was pictured with Dead Kelly members on both bands social media accounts, the results of which have yet to come to fruition, and it still remains to be seen if Dead Kelly will actually perform as a live band.

After stomping their way through the nation's capital cities last December in support of their devastating new album 'Ugly Produce', King Parrot stay true to their insatiable work ethic announcing a new edition of their 'Regional Rampage' Tour for 2018. King Parrot always stay true to touring the regional centres of Australia, and this April will see them venture on a massive east coast tour encompassing every nook and cranny from Victoria to far north Queensland. Along for the ride on their first ever visit to Australia will be the USA's Child Bite after releasing 'Negative Noise' on Housecore Records in 2017. The lethal duo have blitzed their way through North America on many tours over the last few years, and King Parrot believe their Australian audiences will love the addition of Child Bite, one of their all-time favourite bands.

A further treat for fans will see both acts offering their services to play at your house! That's right, you heard it correctly, you could have King Parrot and Child Bite playing a private show for you and your mates at your house. Check out Parlour Tours for more information and date availability to ensure that you get in quick for this rare opportunity: http://parlour.tours/kingparrot

The release saw King Parrot travel to North America, Europe and Japan late in 2017 and the band are ready to take to the road once again. The videos for "Ten Pounds of Shit in a Five Pound Bag" and "Piss Wreck" further added to the collection of memorable and entertaining cult videos spewing forth from the KP brains trust.
