King Parrot have announced that they’ll release their third studio album next month.

Titled Ugly Produce, it will arrive on September 22 via Housecore Records/Agonia Records and is the follow-up to 2015’s Dead Set.

It was recorded at Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia, and is said to be “a twisted, cantankerous ride through an outback graveyard, high on PCP, reeking of animal feculence.”

Vocalist Matt ‘Youngy’ Young adds: “Ugly Produce reaches new heights in abrasive songwriting and serves up an odious pile of repulsive flavours you wouldn’t want to find on your local fruit and vegetable shelves.

“It’s a repugnant harvest of gnarled and nasty grind, death metal, thrash, and punk rock – and it’s more caustic than ever.”

In addition, King Parrot have released a weird video for album track Ten Pounds Of Shit In A Five Pound Bag. It can be seen below, along with the Ugly Produce cover art and tracklist.

They’ll head out on tour across the US from next month with Superjoint, DevilDriver, Cane Hill and Child Bite.
