Mastodon, Dethklok Team Up for Tour
Converge and High on Fire will also appear on the 34-city jaunt, which begins October 2.
Heavy metal icons Mastodon will hit the road with Dethklok, the real-life version of the animated band from the Adult Swim show Metalocalypse, for a co-headlining tour this October and November.
The 34-city jaunt will kick off October 2 in Portland, OR, and take the bands across the U.S. and into Canada before ending on November 19 in Los Angeles.
In an inventive twist, Dethklok will perform dark-lit beneath a giant projection screen, with new animation and music videos featuring their Metalocalypse characters shown overhead.
Hardcore heroes Converge and modern metal band High on Fire will open the tour.
