Agonia Records is pleased to announce the signing of the Australian one-of-a-kind thrash metal/grindcore/punk entity, KING PARROT. Hailing from Melbourne, the band released their debut album “Bite Your Head Off” in 2012, which gained high praise for its stand-out musical performance layered with black humour and nowadays rare, yet unique creativity. KING PARROT’s upcoming new album was recorded by Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down) in Nodferatu’s Lair Studio and is set to land this spring via: Agonia Records in Europe, Housecore Records in North America and Rocket/EVP in Australia.

On the new deal, the band commented: “Everyone at King Parrot is excited at the prospect of working with Agonia Records for Europe. We’ve heard nothing but excellent reports from other acts on their label and believe partnering with them in Europe will see us hit the territory more often. They believe in the band, and with this new album containing our best work to date, we want to spend a lot of time touring in Europe. We are currently undertaking our first Europe tour now, and getting a great response, so when this new album comes out we hope to be here a whole lot more! Bring it on!”

Housecore Records is very pleased to officially welcome Australian thrash grind miscreants, KING PARROT, to their expanding roster of extreme!

Comments label head, Philip H. Anselmo, “KING PARROT is not only a great live band, but they are as genuine and down to earth as it gets. They also tour constantly, so their union with Housecore Records serves us both well. Watch out for their new CD later this Spring!”

Adds KING PARROT of the union, “We here at KING PARROT are really happy to announce we’ve signed with Housecore Records. We are big fans of everything the label has done to date. The way the label operates and works with bands is something that we immediately took a liking to, their attention to detail and helping us produce what we believe is a great new album has been a lot of fun. The Housecore crew have welcomed us with open arms and everyone is excited to show the wider metal community what we have been working on later this year… It’s an exciting time for KING PARROT and we can’t wait to show you the new album, new videos and of course, tours that we have been working on.”

KING PARROT has been on the road ever since the release of their debut and 2015 proves no different. Known to be a frenzied and furious live experience, the five-piece outfit is currently finishing their Metal Injection-sponsored 10-date live run with Weedeater in Europe. Shortly after, KING PARROT will revisit the US for a second leg of the tour.
