Mac Sabbath will return to the road late this Fall to bring America another heaping helping of unhealthy – but irresistible – “Drive-Thru Metal” on the 2022 Pop-Up-Drive-Thru Tour, featuring special guests Speedealer, southern rock heavier and faster then anything this side of Motorhead and shoulders, and Lung, the electric cello and drums female duo, kicking off one heck of a party feast for the senses! A food fight to the death!
“Mac Sabbath will be popping up all over the States – just like in our debut release”, says the band’s perplexing clown faced frontman Ronald Osbourne. “Confusing the USA one more time”!
Mac Sabbath has revealed details on their first book, “Drive-Thru Metal”, but don’t expect a stereotypical biography from the fast food-themed parody kings. There’s plenty of “juice” inside, albeit in the form of burgers cooking in the kitchen as the four members of Mac Sabbath take fans on a journey through a dystopian fast-food world polluted by its own waste in an innovative hybrid pop-up book.
Mysterious Mac Sabbath frontman Ronald Osbourne comments on the book: “What’s that? A pop-up book is not what you were expecting? Well SUFFER!… and you’re welcome”.
Available via Poposition Press, “Drive-Thru Metal” features illustrations by Gris Grimly, well-known for his darkly whimsical children’s books and the upcoming Netflix film adaptation of his Pinocchio book, and will be available in Regular and Special Editions. Both editions are available in limited quantities, so be sure to get your copy of this piece of “Drive Thru Metal” history!
Both editions of “Drive-Thru Metal” include pop-up scenes highlighting “The Factory”, “The Ascension” and “Utopia” and include a special vinyl surprise with seven Mac Sabbath stories, including “Organic Funeral”, Sweet Beef” and “N.I.B.B.L.E.” The Special Edition is a super limited version complete with a foil stamped cover, a Gris Grimly art print and ketchup and mustard splattered vinyl surprise.
“Drive-Thru Metal” is available here.
“The waiting is over! I mean When it comes to ‘drive-thru metal’, who needs waiters!?! With our debut album release we are about to ‘pop-up’ all over the states for the first time in years! So head over for a triple decker helping of the cheese you need! on sale now!”, comments Ronald Osbourne.

Mixing raucous comedy with borderline-horrific theatrics, the only thing more petrifying than impending health problems resulting from years of overeating is a Mac Sabbath show. Show attendees should be prepared to partake in the fun – Mac Sabbath puts on a theatrical, multimedia stage show – complete with a smoking grill, laser-eyed clowns, bouncing burgers and many more magical surprises… basically anything and everything an unwary show-goer could ever want in their wildest dreams. The band has been named by Buzzfeed as one of the “13 Metal Bands You Didn’t Know How to React To”, and as LA’s “Best Tribute Band” by LA Weekly.
