It's quotes and comments like these circulating in music circles that earned King Parrot the reputation as the most lethal and extreme new band in Australia.
Huge support from Australia's best rock and metal stations like youth broadcaster JJJ and mainstream radio MMM has grown the strength and popularity of the band since its inception on the live touring scene in 2011. King Parrot has already shared the stage with bands like Obituary, Forbidden, Macabre, Eyehategod, Cattle Decapitation, Rotten Sound, Psycroptic, Thy Art is Murder and Warbringer.
After two years, and many hours confined to a tour bus on hectic touring schedules, the result is the debut long player, aptly titled Bite Your Head Off - and the album does just that.
Produced by Jason Fuller (Blood Duster, Dern Rutlidge) and Adam Calaitzis (Damaged, Abramelin), King Parrot managed to capture the raw intensity of their live shows on tape. They defy genres with a cross section assault on thrash, grind, punk and hardcore and back it up with a brutally entertaining live show. Bite Your Head Off was released in Australia late 2012 through Impedance Records, and has just been released worldwide in May 2013 through legendary label Candlelight Records.
"Shit on the Liver" is the first single and has been launched as a video, and already being hailed as one of the best Australian metal videos of all time. It was recently a finalist in the Australian Music Video Awards at the St. Kilda Film Festival. The track also appears as a split 7" single with Australian metal legends Frankenbok. The release of the video and album, coupled with the always frantic, hilarious and high energy live show has made King Parrot the most revered metal band in Australia.
