We’re all excited to be knee deep in it right now.”

Dethklok Bassist Bryan Beller To Miss Band’s First Show In Five Years

As previously reported, Dethklok will be taking the stage for the first time in five years during the Adult Swim Festival in Los Angeles, CA. However, bassist Bryan Beller has since confirmed that he will not take part in the performance due to his commitments to The Aristocrats. He told Sticks For Stones the following:

“I’m not playing it because I’m gonna be on tour with The Aristocrats in Europe. So imagine my frustration and disappointment about that, because I love the Dethklok gig, it’s so much fun. It’s such a great show [‘Metalocalypse‘], and of course I wish that it was still going on. As far as Dethklok and Brendon Small and another season, that’s above my paygrade… It has to with the television network and Brendon, and I just can’t comment on that, but of course, I hope and wish that it happens, I think just like many of the fans.”
