Adult Swim‘s “Metalocalypse” heroes DETHKLOK are set to co-headline the 2022 Adult Swim Festival Block Party.

The event will take place August 5-7 across four different Philadelphia, Pennsylvania venues — The Fillmore, The Foundry, Punch Line and Brooklyn Bowl. DETHKLOK will take the stage on August 7 at The Fillmore location. Also scheduled to headline the event are RUN THE JEWELS (August 5 at The Fillmore) and TIERRA WHACK (August 6 at The Fillmore). As well as music, attendees can expect “live panels, exclusive premieres, watch parties, games, giveaways, and merch.”

DETHKLOK‘s last live performance happened in November 2019 as part of the Adult Swim Festival at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles. That particular show marked DETHKLOK‘s first live appearance since taking part in the 2014 edition of Festival Supreme in L.A. That performance featured Brendon Small (guitar, vocals) along with drummer Gene Hoglan (DEATH, ex-TESTAMENT), Nili Brosh on second guitar and Pete Griffin on bass.

Last year, Adult Swim announced that it will produce a new original movie based on “Metalocalypse” which will release globally on Blu-ray/DVD and on digital transactional video on demand (TVOD) and electronic sell through (EST) for a 90-day exclusive window, followed by premieres on HBO Max and Adult Swim.

DETHKLOK‘s latest album, “Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III“, was released in October 2012 via Williams Street Records.
