i assume dethklok is closing simply because of their production

dont forget that on their co-headliner with mastodon that mastodon actually played longer even though they were first

Never been to Compuware Arena, it's hardly ever used for live shows, should be interesting.

I hope for this tour Dethklok actually has a new plot and plays more from the 2nd album. I'm not overly excited about LoG but it will be nice to finally see them in the proper setting (it was really lame when they opened for Metallica). I've just started getting into Gojira recently so i'm pretty excited to see them too.

I heard it has the worst sound out of all the venues that host metal acts in Chicago. I have never been there myself so I can't really give my honest opinion on it. I just read all the bad experiences that are listed on yelp about their bathrooms and sound. Have you been there yourself?

Yea I've been for a few shows. All stars Tour last year, Korn, The Doors, etc. Their bathrooms aren't that bad, better than Aragons. I've never noticed bad sound there at all. Pretty easy to get to by train compared to Aragon. Parking lots are randomly around there. Nice big open floor.

Dude, there's a subway stop right across the street from the Aragon. That is convenient as hell for me.


I've only been to the Aragon twice, but I definitely prefer it to Congress, although Congress gets bonus points for making an impromptu smoker's lounge for a few shows that I've been to there.

You're probably right but the show I saw on the Way of All Flesh tour was a headlining set and they filled a 200-400 capacity venue. If anything their popularity has risen since then so if Roadrunner allows them to hopefully they will...my guess is Roadrunner will kabash it and make them tour with larger bands.

you guys still want to doubt dethklok closing the show? of course TM isnt the end all be all, but i doubt they are going to make the same mistake that many times over (though i think this is promoter/venue's doing and not TM)

edit: ok so now the kansas city show is up there and is the only one with LOG listed first

figures the official press release doesnt clear this up definitively, but worth noting that the two times the full lineup is listed in a single statement, dethklok is mentioned first

This summer, two of the biggest names in metal, LAMB OF GOD and DETHKLOK, will join forces for a 34-show North American tour kicking off on August 1 in Seattle, Wash. The three-time Grammyฎ Award-nominated band from Richmond, VA and the world’s most brutal animated death band from Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse animated series will shred their way through cities throughout in the U.S. and Canada ending September 15 in San Francisco, CA.

The upcoming DETHKLOK and LAMB OF GOD with GOJIRA summer tour marks the return of LAMB OF GOD to North American stages where they will support their latest album Resolution, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart when it was released earlier this year. As in tours past, Brendon Small, the co-creator and composer behind DETHKLOK, will bring the animated band to life on stage each night alongside an all-star band including the legendary Gene Hoglan, Bryan Beller and Mike Keneally. Building on the success of Dethklok: The Dethalbum and Dethklok: The Dethalbum II from Williams Street Records, Small is currently in the studio working on the band’s third album release scheduled for later this year. Additionally, new episodes from the fourth season of Metalocalypse currently air on Adult Swim Sundays at 12:15 a.m. (ET/PT).

Joining the co-headliners at each stop along the tour will be special guest GOJIRA, the French metal band that will perform songs from its upcoming album release, L'Enfant Sauvage, which will be released in the U.S. on June 26 with Roadrunner Records. Pitchfork describes the new album as "breathless and awesome."

Tickets to the DETHKLOK and LAMB OF GOD with GOJIRA tour will go on sale beginning Friday, May 18 and will include the following stops:

This is LoG's tour with Dethklok in a 'coheadling' aka main support act slot.

You are right about Metalocalypse being apart of this however that was the first I had seen of it for this tour.

Also the coheadlining/main support are two different things but no doubt Dethklok is doubling as both on this tour w/ LoG. My understanding was LoG wanted another band in Dethklok's spot first but when that band wouldn't sign on they offered the spot to Dethklok.

They never really advertised it the way they did for the previous tour with Mastodon. It was Dethklok on a poster beside LoG instead of "Adult Swim Presents: The Metalocalpse 2 Tour Featuring Dethklok with..." on the press release and all over the initial tour poster. I had not seen that mentioned until Detuned shared that link.

Maybe thats because this isn't their tour unlike the one with Mastodon/Converge/HoF was in 09?

But Metalocalypse and Dethklok are one in the same

I know this but you are missing my point. Metalocalypse is a TV show; Dethklok is a band. There was not much mention made of the tv show or the network it is on being involved aka trying to spread the word about this tour. Hadn't seen much about it until Detuned posted that link. The tour with Mastodon was treated differently in that aspect.

Dethalbum 1 sold 33450 copies in the US its first week in 2007. Dethalbum 2 sold 45000 copies its debut week in 2009. LoG's Wrath sold 68000 copies in its first week (2009?) while Resolution sold 53000 copies in its first week earlier this year with both album debuting in the top 3 of the billboard charts & Wrath being Grammy nominated.

As a TV show Dethklok is the star. In music LoG definitely has more muscle and thats why they are headlining.

I know this but you are missing my point. Metalocalypse is a TV show; Dethklok is a band. There was not much mention made of the tv show or the network it is on being involved aka trying to spread the word about this tour. Hadn't seen much about it until Detuned posted that link. The tour with Mastodon was treated differently in that aspect.


I guess you don't watch Adult Swim
Keep in mind that the news just broke a couple days ago and most people buying tickets aren't looking online hourly for news to break.

This is LoG's tour with Dethklok in a 'coheadling' aka main support act slot.

So Lamb of God plays right before Ozzy, and you adamantly call it coheadlining. Then Lamb of God does their own tour with Dethklok, where it is being called a coheadliner in the press release, and you want to call it main support? Get off Lamb of God's dick :lol:

Because they're not. You can't have one without the other. They go hand in hand.

You are missing my point entirely. I am talking about the difference in support of Dethklok's 09 headline tour from their tv network compared to them being on Lamb Of Gods tour in 2012. While I don't watch tv much then or now it is obvious this tour is being treated different and not being promoted as much because this is LoG's tour with Dethklok 'coheadlining' as compared to the 09 Dethklok tour where they closed every show and Metalocalpse/Adult Swim/Cartoon network was plaster across every press release/promotional item.

All I said is I don't know why you thought Adult Swim wouldn't get involved in this, when it's their show/band. Hell, the tour was announced later Friday and they were running commercials for it last night after Metalocalypse.



Also thank God KsE isn't on this tour.

there definitely was a different band being offered with LOG back in february, but it wasnt KSE. perhaps they came up after the original band backed out.

also being first on the admat doesnt necessarily mean anything:

Lol. A KsE band member told me they were 'offered' a slot to tour with LoG a few months back. Thats all I know. Offers, negotiations, etc doesn't mean much. Lots of bands are in talks for the same spot on a tour at the same time in some instances. I imagine KsE, LoG, Dethklok all have their fair share of tour offers.

Interesting. Do you think they're looking for a band bigger than Dethklok to fill LoG's spot or would Dethklok be promoted to main headliner?

That might be true, perhaps downgrading to a smaller venue. If Mastodon plays they would likely play before Dethklok. There aren't many other options except Megadeth IF they aren't busy touring. Maybe HellYeah, All That Remains, Volbeat but people who bought tix for LoG will be pissed at the replacement. Best bet is to postpone until early 2013. If LoG can't play then get Slayer \m/

As I've said before, I really hope the situation with Randy is resolved as soon as possible, for his and his family's sake.

If, however, Lamb of god don't do this tour, I'm not really sure how many options there are. I'd be stoked to see just Dethklok/Gojira (since they were my entire reason for buying tickets), but tickets were pretty expensive because they had LOG's name on them.

Dethklok/Mastodon again would be incredible, of course, but I'm not sure how realistic is. Children of Bodom would make a lot of sense as a replacement, given their similar popularity and fanbase to LOG (here, anyway). Also they're pretty fun and don't take themselves very seriously.

Dude, COB aren't on the same level as LoG. They couldn't headline over Dethklok

The date in my area has always been advertised as a Dethklok headlining show with Lamb of god as direct support. Even then - up here, Children of Bodom are definitely on par with Lamb of god in terms of popularity and show turnout.

I like Bodom, but that's not the case down here in the states. They'd have to pair them up with someone else. Bodom's headlining tours are generally 500-1500 person clubs with 2-3 other good bands. When LoG does that they try to get to 2000+ (or more, like this tour).

Meeeeh Slayer or Megadeth by themselves couldn't play those places. And you get 10k in there at best because those shows are general admission with just the floor and lower level open.

The St. Louis venue holds 15,000. In the states LoG is every bit as popular as Slayer imo. Not saying they are better. Maybe they are more popular than Slayer or Megadeth at this point in America? LoG draws fans from the Big 4 fanbase and has their own younger fan base who are into newer metal bands. Their last few albums have charted/sold as high if not higher than Slayer or Megadeth in the US.

They are not too far away from reaching the level of AJFA era Metallica, Pantera... as being one of the most popular underground (not played on fm radio rock stations) metal bands of all time.

Yeah, they play the same venue when they come to Milwaukee. It's sold out the past few times Slayer has come here, which includes with Megadeth, but they haven't been able to do that by themselves. I'm pretty sure Lamb of God has sold out the venue twice on their own. Actually, when they did the Unholy Alliance Tour and Gigantour 2006, they had a bigger crowd response than Megadeth and Slayer. Of course, this was 6 years ago, when they were musically at their peak, imo.

This roughly translated interview states otherwise (assuming it's translated correctly):

"You’ve made bail, and apparently you may be released soon. What are your future plans?

If I go back to the U.S., I have to mow the lawn, spend some time with my family, and then plunge back into performing so that I can pay my legal fees and help my friends earn money so that we can live decently. If I have to stay in the Czech Republic, I would look at the sights, especially in Prague. I’d go wherever Kafka went and eat dumplings."

Metallica was doing arenas on the AJFA tour, weren't they? No way LOG is at that level. Not even close. LoG is the most popular "underground" band going -- perhaps by a wide margin -- but nowhere near AJFA-era Metallica.

This roughly translated interview states otherwise (assuming it's translated correctly):

"You’ve made bail, and apparently you may be released soon. What are your future plans?

If I go back to the U.S., I have to mow the lawn, spend some time with my family, and then plunge back into performing so that I can pay my legal fees and help my friends earn money so that we can live decently. If I have to stay in the Czech Republic, I would look at the sights, especially in Prague. I’d go wherever Kafka went and eat dumplings."

As much as I've pulled a John Kerry on his band over the last five or six years, Randy's always been a guy I thought I could have a beer with. That response is exactly what I'd like to hear from a guy.

Maybe its only the first few shows? As I understand it most contracts have a cancellation period where as the bands only lose $ for promotion. I think anything after that is when fees occur. Since Randy is still in jail it only makes sense to cut your losses now. No one knows for sure how this will play out YET.

The sound at the Queen E. is impeccable. I'm not sure what the exact set up will be like for the Dethklok/Lamb of god show but it shouldn't be a huge issue. Most metal shows I've seen at the classical/opera theatres make a medium-sized pit-area up front but leave most of the seating. I'm not sure if you've seen Dethklok before or not, but I saw them in a seated theatre last time and it was perfect.

Really I think it'd be worth it to see in Vancouver if you happen to be here just because of the novelty of seeing a show somewhere new. Metal shows don't happen at that specific venue too often so I can't claim to know much about it, but it should be a great time.

I wouldn't be too surprised if this does end up selling out to be honest. Vancouverites are infamous for getting tickets at the door though so there might be tickets right up until the day of - so show up earlyish if you can. If you're in Vancouver for a few days before you might want to hit up a place called SCRAPE Records on East Broadway to buy your tickets. They're usually decently priced and it's an awesome metal emporium/collector's shop so it's cool to visit anyway.

And if you're here on the 30th of July and Dethklok is already sold out, you could use that $12 service charge you saved to see Skeletonwitch instead :lol: .

In the end, hope you enjoy the city man!

Well I'm pretty sure they started working on a backup as soon as Randy got arrested and not released.

Ticket prices will go down if what I said happens, and those who bought presale can either get a refund, or rembersed the price difference.
