It’s been 18 months since I last caught up with the Aussie bar-stewards of King Parrot, but it was like a day hadn’t passed. This time the boys are out on tour with Voivod on the Post-Society tour. With the halfway mark date passed, I catch up with vocalist Matt Young at Slim’s in San Francisco to chat about the tour, their last album Dead Set, new label and upcoming European tour with Obituary, Exodus and Prong.
With the noise that surrounded King Parrot after their 2012 album “Bite Your Head Off” it was no surprise after touring in 2014 with Phil Anselmo of Down that he would soon want a slice of the pie. So with a trip to New orleans the band set up camp at Anselmo’s studio to begin recording their second album Dead Set. Now signed to his music label Housecore records/ Agonia the band have been relentlessly touring North America, Canada and in late 2015 they finally reached the European shores touring with Weedeater.
Check out this week’s show as Matt Young and I discuss what’s next for the King Parrot and more details about the upcoming European tour. This Wednesday live – 15th June 2016 – 8pm GMT / 12pm PST – Totalrock.com.
