GWAR B-Q Is Huge Success – GWAR Announces North American Tour Dates!


The 6th Annual GWAR B-Q was held this weekend in beautiful Richmond, Virginia. All Bohabs lucky enough to survive the event are in agreement; this was the best GWAR B-Q ever! Fans from across the globe made their way to Hadad’s Lake in Richmond to celebrate the 30th Birthday of intergalactic shock rock giants….GWAR!

The 3-day weekend of destruction and debauchery started off at The National with the B4BQ, featuring blistering performances from Coal Chamber, Fear Factory and every band from The Summer Slaughter Tour. After the show, hundreds of Bohabs kept the party going at GWAR’s own watering hole, the one and only GWARbar!

The weekend’s main event took place on Saturday, August 15th, under crystal clear skies at Hadad’s Lake. The water was cool, and the Oderus Ale was flowing like hot, delicious piss! In an uncharacteristic act of compassion, our Lords and Masters offered free GWATER to the delirious, heat stroking Bohabs, and this was no Woodstock…there were more than enough chemical toilets for all the pee pee and poo poo!

Riding high on the momentum from The GWAR B-Q, the Intergalactic Overlords are set to hit the road next week. The tour begins August 25th in Millvale, PA and ends September 19th in Toronto. Support on the tour will come from Butcher Babies and label-mates Battlecross, and this run will see the band playing all three Riot Fest dates (Denver, Chicago, Toronto) and the Befuddled Fest in New Albany, IL. Tickets for these dates are on sale now!

Following their appearance at the final Riot Fest in Toronto, GWAR will return to their arctic slumber for less than a month before they return to finish the desecration of the North American continent. This time, the band will be joined by Born of Osiris and once again their friends in Battlecross. This leg of the tour kicks off October 7th in Cincinnati, OH and wraps up November 28th in Orlando, FL. For the Canadian dates on the tour direct support will come from Cryptopsy. More dates will be added in the coming weeks, so don’t worry if your Intergalactic rock gods have yet to announce a date in your town. Tickets for these Fall shows go on sale Friday August 21st, but if you are a member of the GWAR Fan Club, you can get your tickets starting today direct from your Overloards at a reduced ticket processing fee by clicking the logo below or visiting


GWAR promises an all new show that cannot be missed. All human scum are commanded to attend each and every show of the tour! So tell your bosses, spouses and screaming rug rats to suck it! Dedicate your life to GWAR!

The band is keeping the gory details of the show tightly under wraps, but guitarist Pustulus Maximus seems hell bent on leaking some information about what to expect…

”I have yet to grasp this concept of the internet and the spouting of self-important speeches by people in social media; the INTERNET MUST DIE, so GWAR will KILL IT!. Management tells me the internet is not a person that can be fought and killed, but they don’t know the true power of a Scumdog. WE KILL EVERYTHING!”

GWAR B-Q vendors and such…

GWAR Debut New Products At GWAR B-Q, Vendors Announced, Brutal Brunch Details Revealed


The 6th Annual GWAR B-Q is set for this weekend and GWAR themselves have promised to deliver four new amazing products for humanity to choke on.

Front Cover for Press hi res

First, the highly anticipated “Let There Be GWAR” book will be available for the first time to the masses of Bohabs that know how to read. (Don’t worry there are plenty of pictures, so even the Bohabs that can’t read can still enjoy it too.) “Let There Be GWAR” is a comprehensive behind-the-scenes history of GWAR. This 360 page oversized hardcover book is chock full of fascinating first-hand accounts and rare, never-before-seen photographs. The book follows the band from the mid-1980s, known in GWAR lore as the “Dim Time,” when the group came together at a derelict dairy building in Richmond, Virginia, through the 1990s and 2000s, when the band spread across the face of the planet like a plague. It’s a must have for all Bohabs, even the illiterate ones.



What is a GWAR B-Q without alcohol? It would still be a festival but not as fun! This year the Scumdogs debut the exclusive Oderus Ale. It’s GWAR’s legendary beer and it’s back by popular demand. These brews always sell out at the GWAR B-Q! For the third year running, Cigar City Brewery of Tampa FL. has crafted a very special tribute brew, Oderus Ale, to the legendary Scumdog! This beer is bold, strong, and drunk just like the ultimate Scumdog warrior it’s named after. Hail ODERUS!!!




And this one is just for you, Bohabs, fires of hell for you to put in your mouth, ’cause life’s too short for bland food! GWAR is also pleased to debut their Bohabanero Sauce. This sauce is not for wimps but it doesn’t sacrifice flavor for heat’s sake. Affectionately named after GWAR‘s faithful followers, the Bohabs, this hot sauce brings the smack of habanero peppers and the subtle sweetness of carrots in a unique combination! If you crave equal parts pleasure and pain, Bohabanero Sauce is what you’ve been seeking and you can try it for the first time at the GWAR B-Q!

The one and only CiGWARs are returning to this year’s GWAR B-Q. CiGWAR No.2 is a full bodied smoke with a spicy yet smooth finish. These puros are handcrafted by Pete Johnson of Tatuaje at My Father’s Cigar factory in Nicaragua, available at the GWAR B-Q, and sold exclusively by Havana Connections with five locations in the Richmond and Williamsburg areas. Come smoke a CiGWAR in the great outdoors at Hadad’s Lake during the 6th annual GWAR B-Q.

In addition to GWAR’s Oderus Ale, CiGWARs and Bohabanero Sauce, and the new book, there will be a sea of vendors that will be slinging grub and peddling their wares for you human scum to buy.

The event takes place from 2:00 – 6:00 PM at Abner Clay Park, across the street from the GWARbar located at 217 W Clay St, in the historic Jackson Ward District! The Brutal Brunch will feature live music from The Sawyer Family, Sarah White, and Richmond’s own Mag Bats. This family friendly event (yes, GWAR can be nice and appeal to families sometimes) will showcase more local food and art vendors as GWAR has an ever growing soft spot for Richmond artists! Bring a blanket or grab a chair there. Whatever you do, enjoy the day! The band will be mingling at this party with you human scum, giving you one more opportunity to worship your Lords and Masters and giving GWAR themselves the opportunity to say THANK YOU to GWAR B-Q weekend patrons, sponsors, and meaningless passers-by alike! We encourage you to end your weekend of mayhem and hangovers by hanging with us in the park, visiting GWARbar, and indulging in food and some Hair of the Dog once more before high tailing it out of beautiful Richmond… until next year!


Tickets are still available for purchase at Online GWAR B-Q ticket sales end Friday night Aug 14th at 8pm. So, save some money on the advanced online ticket price. B4BQ tickets for Friday Aug. 14th at the National are available at Tickets will still be available at the gates for both shows, the B4BQ and the GWAR B-Q.
