Gwar "Bloody Pit of Horror"

Gwar "Bloody Pit of Horror" - NEW ALBUM IN STORES NOW ON METAL BLADE RECORDS

“LUST IN SPACE” AND “BLOODY PIT OF HORROR” PICTURE DISCS TO BE RELEASED

After a brief return home to their hulking Antarctic stronghold, intergalactic murder-machines GWAR are returning to the U.S. for one final spurt of touring before doing whatever the hell they are up to after that. The Lords and Masters of this world apparently tired of abusing penguins and are ready to return to the surface world and begin the homestretch towards the conclusion of their seemingly endless 25th Anniversary “Slay-a-Bration”, which has now grown to encompass their 26th year of rebirth on Earth from the icy prison that for centuries had been their fate. When will GWAR stop celebrating their 25th anniversary? Only one warty front-thing can say for certain. Oderus was reached for comment at his command bunker located deep beneath the GWAR Fortress, where he took a break from his undead re-creation of the Battle of Stalingrad to chime in about the campaign of continuing idiocy and destruction GWAR plans on schleping to you, the faithful human scum.

“It’s seems we were about 8000 zombies short of our goal, which was to fill every hull of our Skumdog War Fleet with blood-mad slavering zombie shock-soldiers. So we decided to come back to the U.S., re-open the Bloody Pit, and mutate some more of our helpless followers. Then we shall invade the very heart of the galaxy with our infected hatred and lust for war against all things alive. That and party.”

Thu/Feb-17 Raleigh, NC @ Lincoln Theatre

Fri/Feb-18 Allentown PA @ Crocodile Rock

Sat/Feb-19 Millvale PA @ Mr. Smalls Theatre

Who would have guessed that everyone’s favorite bellicose bass player Beefcake the Mighty had a soft side? When he’s not out singing about or actually beating things to death, the rotund one has volunteered for Bloody Disgusting.com to offer his advice to the lovelorn.
