GWAR Announces North American Fall Tour

– August 15th, 2017 –

New Album “The Blood of Gods” Out October 20th via Metal Blade Records

On October 20th, GWAR will release a new studio album entitled “The Blood of Gods” via Metal Blade Records. In support of the new album, your Lords and Masters will leave their arctic slumber and return to the road to cause aural (and anal) devastation across North America. Joining in the chaos will be Ghoul, Doyle (10/20-11/5), He Is Legend (11/7-12/10) and U.S. Bastards. The tour kicks off in Richmond, VA on October 20th and runs through December 10th in Detroit, MI. The tour includes a stop in New York City on Halloween as well! A complete list of dates can be found below.

The Berserker Blothar had this to say about the upcoming tour:
Humans, we are coming to tear your world apart with a live performance the likes of which has never been seen on this or any other planet! This album, “The Blood of Gods,” is the greatest thing since French toast. Just hearing these songs performed will result in an instant paroxysm of weeping, gnashing of teeth, and the uncontrollable voiding of your filthy bowels. Now, we are taking the whole bloody shit show on the road, with the most spectacular, blood-drenched, gruesome, and terrifying rock concert of all time. Don’t miss your chance to sacrifice yourself to GWAR at a venue near you!

Bohabs! Be the coolest corpse in the pile! Don’t miss your chance to pledge your allegiance to GWAR each night when they rape and pillage your town. Head to gwarvip.com to take part in “The Lords and Masters VIP Experience“.

General admission tickets and VIP Packages go on sale to the public this Friday August 18th at 10:00 AM Eastern.

The Lords and Masters VIP Experience Includes:
• One (1) General Admission Ticket with Venue Early Entry (potentially guest list)
• Exclusive access to GWAR soundcheck where you will pledge allegiance to your Lords & Masters!
• Invitation to play a GWAR instrument onstage at soundcheck
• Tour of the weapons of your Lords & Masters
• Crowd Free Merch Access
• One (1) Souvenir item signed by members of GWAR
• One (1) Souvenir GWAR laminate
• Photo opportunity with GWAR before the show
• You will be killed by GWAR on stage during the show
• Designated Slave Pit Area to pledge your allegiance before you are killed on stage by GWAR!

There are only 5 VIP TICKETS available per show, that’s it so don’t wait.

Concerning the album: “The Blood of Gods” is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of their great mistake, from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming. Humans are shown as what they are; a parasitic disease that must be eradicated before they suck the planet dry. Meanwhile, Sleazy P. Martini, the crooked entrepreneur who discovered the Scumdogs, and has always envisioned them as a sort of horrific boy band, finally managed to convince the group to write a hit song called “I’ll Be Your Monster.” If all goes according to plan, it may be just stupid enough to work!

Rosetta Announces New Album, Tour Dates

Philadelphia avant-metal band Rosetta will embark on a headline North American tour this fall in support of forthcoming 6th studio album, “Utopioid,” which is due out on September 1st. The band will be supported by Tucson sludge act North, and Rosetta also had this to say:

“We’re thrilled to play shows throughout the Western US and Canada this Fall, in support of our new album Utopioid. And we’re especially proud to be joined by our longtime friends in North, who we’ve had the pleasure to tour with several times over the years.

“Even beyond our brotherly kinship, they bring a level of inspired creativity to the stage night after night. For our part, we’re crafting a setlist pulling from the new album as well as many of our past releases, and look forward to connecting with old and new friends along the way. Can’t wait to see you out there.”

Guitarist / vocalist Eric Jernigan further states: “Composing ‘Utopioid,’ we were wholly devoted to realizing the concept, disciplining ourselves to let the narrative shape all parts of the album — not just the lyrics, but everything down to the subtle ways rhythm or effects could alter the mood. We quickly let go of the imperative to write for live performance; although we will play many of these songs live, we felt freedom to explore the furthest reaches of our skills and imaginations.”

North Announces New U.S. Tour Dates

Fresh off the release of latest live album, “Transmissions: Live In Bucharest,” which hit retailers in March via Prosthetic Records, Arizona-based epic sludge trio North is pleased to announce an upcoming North American tour directly supporting Rosetta.

The tour will begin on October 5th in Scottsdale, AZ and visit several cities, coming to a close back in the band’s hometown of Tucson on October 30th. More dates are to be announced soon. Tickets are available via individual venues.

The band states: “North is thrilled to be back on the road with our friends Rosetta, a band that not only do we enjoy immensely on a musical level, but who are also some of our very best friends in the world. There isn’t another band out there that we would rather be on tour with. They first reached out their arms to us back in 2008 for our first trip to the east coast, and again last summer for our six-week European tour together.

“To say we’ve all seen some shit is an understatement. The folks in Rosetta are a class act and not to mention one of the heaviest bands in the world. They haven’t been to the west coast in seven years and we’re honored to be accompanying them on their return to our side of the country.”
