Lately, we haven’t heard much from Dethklok. The Upfronts a few weeks ago left us wondering if we’d hear from “The Greatest Death Metal Band on Earth” again. Now we have some sort of an answer: Tenacious D (the band made up of actor/comedian Jack Black and his buddy, comedian/actor Kyle Gass – both of whom appeared on an early episode of “Tom Goes to the Mayor”), will be having their annual “Festival Supreme” this coming October.
The event, which has been in existence a few short years, has featured many talents from the Swim universe (both Tim and Eric as well as The Mighty Boosh were there last year). This year will be no different… along with Dethklok, the show will also feature Eric Andre, The State, Fred Armisen & Bill Hader, Heidecker & Wood, Kumail Nanjiani, Norm MacDonald, Janeane Garofalo, Maria Bamford, Nick Kroll, Natasha Leggero, and Ron Lynch… all of which have (or will soon) appear on Swim at one point or another.
The event isn’t until October 25th (but let’s face it… October will be here before you can say “New York Comic-Con.” Tickets are now available at www.festivalsupreme.com and the show will be out at the L.A. Sports Arena & Exposition Park. Hopefully, by October we’ll have some more substantial Metalocalypse news, outside of “The future looks bright.”
