Tour News: King Parrot, The Heretic Order, Devil Sold His Soul, Press To MECO, Eva Plays Dead, Beth Hart

The hype of Machine Head’s return to the UK has most certainly not worn off but there’s no reason we can’t all get excited for a couple more shows in the coming months. Check out the varied bunch below.

King Parrot

And what a way to begin. In an effort to reschedule the shows they would’ve played on the cancelled Decapitated tour, grindcore-thrash-punk crossover group King Parrot have unveiled a ten-date run through the UK in support of Ugly Produce which dropped a few weeks ago. If you’re unfamiliar with the new material, check out the brilliant and all-revealing “Five Pounds Of Shit In A Ten Pound Bag”, find the nearest show below and cancel all your other plans. This deserves it.

Of Press To MECO, vocalist Mikee Goodman says “Press to Meco are one of my favourite bands in the UK. Amazing songwriters and Luke’s guitar playing is immense”, while he says of Devil Sold His Soul “I had not seen Devil Sold His Soul until recently at Arctangent, they sounded absolutely awesome and I’m really looking forward to having them on the tour with us and getting to hear more from them”.
