GWAR Announce Australian Tour

– January 25th, 2018 –

Attention Human Scum!!!

Earth’s favourite interplanetary warriors, GWAR, are returning to conquer and destroy Australia in APRIL 2018!

The Blood of Gods Tour continues on into Australia, as your masters and supreme overlords take their one of a kind carnival of blood-drenched death and destruction Down Under. The last time GWAR visited Australia in 2014, they upset the Australian public with the controversial and media-hyped beheading of an effigy of then-Prime Minister, Tony Abbott. The body count will be even higher when GWAR returns to Australia in April of 2018 for more heavy metal carnage. Mark your calendars or leave the country.

Blothar the Berskerer had this to say about the upcoming bloodbath: “People of Australia, koala bears, kangaroos, crocodiles, wallabies…lend me your ears…and your skulls, and all of your internal organs…GWAR is coming to turn the Land of Dreams into your worst nightmare. Fire up the barby, we are going to eat Australia!

As for the Adelaide scum and your worthless existence, the so-called “Rock Capital of Australia”… is that crack rock? We shall turn the Great Australian Bight into our Great Australian BITE as our parting gift to Australia.

GWAR are riding the wave of worldwide dominance with their new record The Blood of Gods, released by Metal Blade Records in October 2017. The new record, and the spectacular tour to support it, have been praised by fans and media alike as triumphs of unimaginable genius.

Formed in Antarctica 1984 by manager Sleazy P. Martini, GWAR has forged a path of debauchery for over 30 years and it seems their work is still not done.

GWAR‘s mythology is rich in political and social satire. Their cult-following is galvanized by their controversial, indefatigable and ostentatious live performances, where crowds of willing slaves are subjected to ripe humour and theatrical imagery… and lots and lots of blood, vomit and other bodily fluids.

This tour was a masterpiece of the bizarre, an epic telling of a collection of freakish fairy tales” – metalwani.com

So there you have it, the Scumdogs in GWAR need crack and they are out of money!!! So to combat this problem your Lords and Masters will be slaying Juggalos in July, GWAR B-Q‘ing this August, then hitting the road with Crowbar and Mutoid Man from September 14th in Cincinnati, OH through September 18th in Buffalo, NY with a stop in Chicago at this year’s Riot Fest!

GWAR’s Manager: “If I Wanted Your Opinion, I Would Just Knock You Unconscious And Urinate On Your Face”

After the band revealed two new members, GWAR’s manager has now checked in with the following statement about upcoming live shows:

“Toodles, ya parasitic bohabs. It’s me, Sleazy P Martini. As you may already know, GWAR will be out on the GWAR Eternal Tour starting tonight because Thai ladyboys don’t pay for themselves. You smarter Bohabs have probably even noticed that GWAR has undergone a lineup change.

“The reason for this is the absence of Oderus Urungus due to his return to space. First of all, let’s clear something up: Oderus is not dead! Nor is GWAR. Now, admittedly things will be different. For instance, with Oderus’s absence, touring expenses will be scaled back considerably as crack usage by the band will drop by over nine tons a day. To which I, the CIA and the Medellin Cartel respond with a collective: ‘Phew!’ Now all those drug mules crossing the border can use the extra butt space for more important things such as food, water and more relatives.

“Of course, there are many in the scene (code for no-talents) who say that with Oderus out of the band, GWAR should hang it up. To which I must respond: If I wanted your opinion, I would just knock you unconscious and urinate on your face. Which wouldn’t elicit much of an opinion at all – just the way I like it.

“You see, GWAR is a perpetual and unstoppable force. If I tried to retire them, I most certainly would end up flayed, shredded, pulled and served with coleslaw and fries to Gor-Gor. One who is a lion tamer cannot suddenly decide to stop and ask his lions to become house cats. And GWAR’s lust for human carnage cannot properly be met in semi-retirement on the talk-show circuit. So the shows must go on. And they have, starting with Riot Fest in Chicago. The GWAR Eternal Tour starts tonight in Norfolk, VA and goes through December 13th in Baltimore, MD.

“Now, there are some who would say, ‘How can you find a lead singer as talented as Oderus Urungus?’ To which I have responded by having famed archeologist Dr. Richard Leaky travel to Antarctica to dig up another immortal Scumdog. According to Dr. Dick, these furballs are stacked up in GWAR’s fortress basement like chicken pot pies four for a buck. In fact, I have already thawed out one promising prospect named Blóthar. While not as talented a singer as most primates, he’s definitely better than Justin Bieber or the entire One Direction line up.

“So, in response to all you haters who would give your left nut to see GWAR finally call it quits, you can go ahead and keep your left nut and hang it from your nose-ring for another 30 years, because GWAR AIN’T GOING NOWHERE! And though you may think GWAR sucks, remember that GWAR is immortal. So, long after your lame hipster ass is in the ground being used as a luxury condo by worms, maggots and pill bugs, GWAR will still be alive, sucking forever.”

GWAR is Sharpening Blades to Perform at the 5th Annual GWAR B-Q

– May 19th, 2014 –

From the depths of the GWAR temple, beneath the frozen wasteland of Antarctica, mutant penguins swim towards America with news of GWAR‘s triumphant return to the stage as the headliner at this year’s GWAR B-Q. The 5th annual gathering of meat, metal and mayhem will take place on Saturday, August 16th at Hadad’s Lake (www.hadadslake.com) in Richmond, VA. Scientists work around the clock to translate the high-pitched chatter of the mutant penguin hoard as they approach landfall. Conflicting reports indicate that GWAR‘s performance will be lead by none other than, original recipe Beefcake the Mighty aka Mike Bishop or quite possibly it was misinterpreted as the Colonel’s original chicken recipe. Who knows? Be there to find out for yourself as this historic metal event unfolds.

Other random Facebook posts and tweets confirm that original Scumdog members will descend on the GBQ to bear witness to a Viking funeral for Oderus Urungus, whose form will burn upon the SS Boat as he makes his journey back to Valhalla and beyond. This public memorial will be held from 4pm-7pm on Friday, August 15th at Hadad’s Lake (www.hadadslake.com) in Richmond, VA. and is open to even the lowliest of bohabs.

The nut busting anticipation mounts as bohabs from across the globe await the release of GWAR B-Q ticket sale date, June 6th. How do I get tickets, you ask? Tickets will be sold exclusively on the GWAR B-Q website at (www.gwarbq.com). Tickets will be available in three options:
Standard – $45 Ticket – All day entry
Deluxe – $65 Ticket – All day entry and official GWAR B-Q t-shirt
Premium – $200 Ticket (Limited Quantity 150)- All day entry, official GWAR B-Q t-shirt, B4BQ show entry, VIP Pass for private Gwafter Party (venue TBA), as well as Meet & Greet signings with GWAR, Ice-T of Body Count, Hatebreed, Bam Margera of Jackass, and a possible chance to appear on stage with GWAR. What more could you ask for? Don’t ask.

TICKETS GO ON SALE JUNE 6th! Get them fast while they last, it’s going to be a blast!

In other related events, Balsac the Jaws of Death will DJ a drunken feeding frenzy during Industry Happy Hour at Eat The Rich located at 1839 7th St NW, Washington, DC 20001 on May 22nd from 11:00pm-2:30am. Specialty drinks concocted by Derek Brown, JP Fetherston, Robert Tinney and oysters from Rappahannock River Oysters, LLC will be featured. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the Dave Brockie Fund, honoring GWAR‘s irreverent lead singer and founding member. Donate to the Dave Brockie Fund at www.gwar.net. It has been advised to waste your life searching the inter-web to discover Balsac’s cryptic agenda for appearing at this international gala. Balsac reserved comment as he suspiciously sharpened swords for a harvest of souls to be served where and when? The only way to find out is by attending and getting him loaded on free booze. That means, buy him drinks, for you morons out there in the vile streets of the nation’s capital. He might possibly disclose his plans before your ultimate demise. There is only one way to find out.

GWAR Frontman Oderus Urungus to Appear on “Insane Clown Posse Theater” Tonight on Fuse!

– February 5th, 2014 –

GWAR lead throat thing, the one and only Oderus Urungus will make his return to Fuse tonight as he guest stars on Insane Clown Posse Theater.  The show features Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope’s twisted take on what’s new in music and popular culture.  Every week, Insane Clown Posse views a mix of music videos and viral clips and provides uninhibited commentary, as only they can. Insane Clown Posse Theater airs at 11:30 PM EST/10:30 PM CST. In a landmark decision to class up their show even more, the Clowns decided to invite the Lord and Master of the Universe Oderus Urungus to take part in the mayhem.

A preview for tonight’s episode as well as a web exclusive interview with Oderus can be seen HERE.

“I had a great time in the Big Apple w/ ICP, making fun of idiotic videos, molesting their girlfriends in the mop closet, and making entire bologna-logs disappear up my ass,” said rock and roll’s most asinine front-thing. “And once again Fuse had the balls to put GWAR on TV. But isn’t it about time we had our own TV show? Who do I need to have sex with?” quoth Oderus.

In other GWAR news that you probably heard about already, Oderus and company recently announced they would be bringing the most legendary spectacle in rock ‘n roll all the way from Antarctica to the Land of the Rising Sun. After 28 years of relentless touring, recording and general mayhem, GWAR is finally playing Japan!

After playing the gigantic Soundwave Festival in Australia, GWAR will travel north to play two exclusive shows in Japan, where legions of GWAR fans have been waiting patiently for years for their chance to die in the presence of their hulking metal overlords. Their wishes shall at last come true on Thursday, March 6th at Club Quattro in Osaka, Japan, and Friday, March 7th at Akasaka Blitz in Tokyo. Tickets are on sale now. For more Japanese GWAR news, be sure to follow @gwarjapanet on Twitter.

Battle Maximus can be ordered from Metal Blade Records HERE, Amazon and iTunes.

Metallica Footage From Antarctica Show Available

Metallica recently played a live show in Antarctica, and photos from the set can be found at the band’s Facebook profile here. An hour and a half long video from the show is available below. Metallica comments:

“This was the most unique show Metallica has ever done. The band, contest winners, research station scientists (from Russia, South Korea, China, Poland, Chile, Brazil and Germany), and the ship crew, all crammed in this little dome out on the helipad of Carlini Station in ANTARCTICA!

“The energy in the little dome was amazing! Words can not describe how happy everyone was. The band cranked out 10 songs for the small crowd including Creeping Death, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Sad But True, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Master of Puppets, One, Blackened, Nothing Else Matters, Enter Sandman, and Seek & Destroy.

“No word on if there were any penguins were attendance.”

GWAR Debuts Video For “Madness at the Core of Time”

– November 21st, 2013 –

Sure they may have just finished the first leg of their most brutal tour to date, but the Intergalactic Warlords are not ready for a break just yet.  People have been asking when there will be a video for a song from GWAR‘s latest masterpiece Battle Maximus and now they have an answer.  Today your Lords and Masters bring to you the video for “Madness at the Core of Time”.  Check out the video HERE and pick up your copy of Battle Maximus.  (Seriously if you haven’t gotten it yet, what the FUCK are you waiting for?  Oderus needs drug money)

Quoth Oderus:
“We made a video?  I have been so busy touring, getting loaded and mouthing off I didn’t even notice.  But I am sure it’s the best video ever, simply because GWAR is in it.”

In other GWAR news, for the last two years animators Myke Chillian and Tommy Meehan have been working with the members of GWAR to create a “GWARtoon” that was appropriately disgusting and objectionable enough to most accurately represent the most dangerous band in rock and roll history. After all this long and hard work, last week Funny or Die finally premiered “The Animated Tales of GWAR“. Check it out HERE.

Following a short Antarctic slumber GWAR will return to the road with three shows around the holidays (December 27th – 29th) with Battlecross and Iron Reagan providing support. Then it’s off to Antarctica again before heading “down under” for their appearance on the 2014 “Soundwave Festival”.

GWAR‘s Battle Maximus out now on Metal Blade Records features twelve brand new tracks that not only honor their departed ally, but tells the story of GWAR‘s latest struggle against what may be their greatest enemy yet…the insidious “Mr. Perfect”, who has travelled through time itself to steal the power of GWAR–the power of immortality, and use this power to mutate the human race into his twisted vision of what the “perfect” human should be. Once again GWAR finds themselves as the only thing standing between the human race and the latest super-powered shithead bent on the destruction of GWAR and the enslavement of their worshippers.

Battle Maximus can be ordered from Metal Blade Records HERE, Amazon and iTunes.
