Dethklok, Trail of Dead on Adult Swim tour

    The latest in a line of fake bands to garner serious fan love (see also Flight of the Conchords, Tenacious D), Dethklok, the animated metal outfit featured on the Adult Swim series Metalocalypse, is now making like a real band with an album and touring. The Dethklok album Dethalbum was released back in September, and a double DVD set of the show’s first season was released earlier this month. Now, the band is set to head out on the second Adult Swim sponsored tour of college campuses with …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. Should be interesting, as, with the Gorillaz, the dilemma here is how to translate a cartoon band onto a live stage.
