Ned Flanders-Themed Band OKILLY DOKILLY Announce Farewell Tour

Simpsons, Ned Flanders-Inspired Metal Band OKILLY DOKILLY Release First Music Video, "White Wine Spritzer"

All good things must come to an end, and thus the metalcore band that was inspired by The Simpsons do-gooder Ned Flanders have announced they are going on indefinite hiatus after one last tour.

The band noted "When we started Okilly Dokilly, our goal was to play maybe two shows. We imagined being the third or fourth band on a seven-band metal show. We would step out in our sweaters and confuse the 12 or 13 people in attendance, and then have a great story. Things turned out a little differently."

“Okilly Dokilly did way more than I ever expected,” said vocalist Head Ned. "I’m really grateful for all the people who have been part of it. And especially to everyone who came out to our shows to say howdilly doodilly. We’ve been touring pretty relentlessly since 2016 and, last year, I became a dad. So it’s time for a break. It’s time for me to shave off the Ned mustache and grow the dad mustache."

It's hard to imagine how much was left for the band to accomplish after they made it onto the end credits of the friggen Simpsons, played at the end of the episode "I'm Just A Girl Who Can't Say Doh." You can watch the performance at the end of this post.

Head Ned added, "We just want to let everyone know that we won’t be touring or making any new music in the next few years. I’m not sure if or when we’ll be back, but for now, it’s ‘toodilly do’.”
