Pentakill to return with new track at LCS 2021 Mid-Season Showdown Finals

Riot Games’ virtual heavy metal band will return to the stage after three years away.

Pentakill will perform during the LCS 2021 Mid-Season Showdown Finals opening ceremony.

The virtual metal band, who last released music in 2017 with album Grasp of the Undying, will return to the real-life stage at the Los Angeles Greek Theatre — where they’ll preview their newest track set to be released later this year.

This will also mark the first real-life performance at the theatre since the COVID-19 pandemic began, along with its first ever esports event. The Mid-Season Showdown however won’t have any audience in attendance, with only essential staff and talent at the venue.

The performance is created by Riot’s Justin Restaino, who also planned the virtual dragon spectacle at Worlds 2017 and True Damage’s performance at Worlds 2019.

The return of Pentakill also comes with a new sponsor, with the band forming a collaboration with Jackson Guitars as an official partner for the LCS. 

Originally conceived in 2014, Pentakill is comprised of League of Legends champions Karthus the Deathsinger, Yorick, Sona, Olaf and Mordekaiser the Master of Metal. They are the first virtual band Riot created, with K-pop group K/DA and True Damage formed in subsequent years.

Pentakill will perform when the LCS Mid-Season Showdown Finals begin on Sunday 11th April 2021, with the countdown starting at 12.30pm PT/8.30pm BST.
