KING PARROT: Signs with Agonia Records

Agonia Records have recently announced the signing of the Australian thrash metal/grindcore/punk band King Parrot. King Parrot’s upcoming new album was recorded by Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down) in Nodferatu’s Lair Studio and is set to be released this spring via Agonia Records in Europe, Housecore Records in North America and Rocket/EVP in Australia.

On the new deal, the band commented: “Everyone at King Parrot is excited at the prospect of working with Agonia Records for Europe. We’ve heard nothing but excellent reports from other acts on their label and believe partnering with them in Europe will see us hit the territory more often. They believe in the band, and with this new album containing our best work to date, we want to spend a lot of time touring in Europe. We are currently undertaking our first Europe tour now, and getting a great response, so when this new album comes out we hope to be here a whole lot more! Bring it on!”


King Parrot were formed in 2011 in Melbourne, Australia. Drawing influence primarily from the thrash, grind, hardcore and punk scenes of the 80s and 90s, a new sound was created fusing those styles and attitudes with a fresh approach that encapsulates their aggression, humour and intensity seamlessly.

The debut album Bite Your Head Off was picked up by Candlelight Records in 2013 for worldwide release. Five videos from their debut album have been produced including “Shit on the Liver”, a finalist in the Australian Music Video Awards and the band’s take on the legendary horror film The Shining for the track “Dead End”.

King Parrot has been on the road ever since the release of their debut and 2015 proves no different. The band is currently finishing their 10-date live run with Weedeater in Europe. Shortly after, King Parrot will revisit the US for a second leg of the tour.
