GWAR Eternal Tour Honors Lost Leader Oderus Urungus and Introduces New Scumdogs

 image001

ANTARCTICA, 29th September 2014

The Scumdogs of the Universe are sharpening their axes and stoking the fires of their great war engines in preparation for the fall 2014 GWAR Eternal Tour. Global leaders had hoped the bouts of terror accompanying GWAR’s annual rampages would finally come to an end with the passing of the the groups monstrous captain, Oderus Urungus. But tonight politicians, religious leaders, and citizens around the world are asking, “Why?! Why won’t GWAR just leave the Earth in peace?”

The band’s toothsome guitarist, BalSac the Jaws of Death had this to say:  “Something is wrong, unspeakably wrong. It feels as if the very fabric of reality has been ripped from belly to taint. And it all centers around Oderus’ disappearance. One moment, life is fantastic, as we celebrate the near sinking of Japan as a result of our recent journey across the Pacific; and the next, he is just gone. Suddenly the world is a dark, vile place with hordes of trolls biting at my hooves and daring to spit poison in my face. There is a great evil behind this, and I will not rest until I know what has become of my brother!”

Mounting evidence points to a disruption in the core of time is the sudden appearance of the Berserker Blóthar, a Scumdog warrior who claims to be from the distant past.Apparently, he was sucked through a hole in the space/time continuum and deposited onstage in front of thousands of screaming metal heads. Fortunately for GWAR, he knows the words to all of their songs and has pledged to aid them by assuming the role of lead singer. Inexplicably, he is also a hell of a bass guitarist!

And what is to be made of the mysterious new Scumdog, Vulvatron? She appears as a cybernetic female assassin who purports to know the answers that GWAR seeks because she hails from the future. While some of the band seems to have fallen under the spell of her impressive blood-spewing assets, others remain skeptical. JiZMak da Gusha was quoted as saying, “Dames, they ain’t nothin’ but trouble.”

CLUTCH

U.S. HEADLINING TOUR

TO LAUNCH DECEMBER 27 IN CINCINNATI AND WRAP JANUARY 10 IN AUSTIN

ANNOUNCE PRE-PRODUCTION ON ELEVENTH STUDIO ALBUM DUE OUT IN 2015 VIA WEATHERMAKER MUSIC

admat holiday jan 2015

After a summer of epic gigs including their first-ever South American performance,  a headlining show in Sao Paulo, Brazil; stunning crowds at all threeRiot Fest shows (Toronto, Chicago and Denver), CLUTCH has announced a U.S. headlining tour which will launch on December 27 in Cincinnati and wrap up on January 10 in Austin. On the upcoming trek, CLUTCH will debut a handful of new songs on the road. Torche and Lionize will join the band as support for the entire run (see dates below).

CLUTCHNEIL FALLON (vocals, rhythm guitar), TIM SULT (lead guitar), DAN MAINES (bass,) JEAN-PAUL GASTER (drums and percussion)–will re-team with the acclaimed producer Machine (Lamb Of God, King Crimson) for a pre-production session in October. The recording of the new album is scheduled to begin in January 2015 with the same team that worked on CLUTCH’s last album Earth Rocker, tagged by Rolling Stone as “seething admixtures of jam-band chops, careening blues-punk riffs” (Dec. 2013). The group’s critically acclaimed Earth Rocker album received a 3-disc triple deluxe release this summer via Weathermaker Music. CLUTCH’s upcoming album is due for worldwide release in 2015.

Asked about the musical direction of the new album NEIL FALLON says: “The best thing is just following your gut. I think if we tried to make ‘Earth Rocker 2,’ it would be D.O.A. But then again, you don’t wanna completely abandon it. We started writing for the next album pretty quickly. So it does bear a lot of similarities to Earth Rocker, just because we’re coming off the heels of that album. If we’d waited five years, I’m sure it would be a different story.”

With Torche and Lionize.

GWAR New Lead singer announced and new “GWARwoman” joins group. Upcoming Fall tour announced…

Two GWAR Members To Join Their Scumdog Brothers on the

GWAR Eternal Tour this Fall!

image001

 GWAR, the most brutal band in existence, has bolstered its ranks leading up to the GWAR Eternal Tour. The Berserker Blóthar and Vulvatron are the latest intergalactic warriors to be banished to the pathetic mudball known as Planet Earth. Blóthar; a fat, filthy, frozen space viking, will take over as GWAR’s lead vocalist. The role of the red-hot cybernetic spitfire known as Vulvatron is more mysterious…Both will feature prominently in the anticipated GWAR Eternal Tour – which promises to be the most shocking and entertaining rock show of the year! Get to know your new masters before they grind you to a bloody pulp!

Blóthar

Size: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL

Origin:       The Berserker Blóthar is an ancient shape-shifting holy warrior from the planet Scumdoggia. Blóthar is known to associate with intergalactic outlaw biker gangs

Position:     Doggy Style baby! A true Renaissance man; Blóthar sings, he dances, he kills things…

Features:   Blóthar wears a ceremonial headdress fashioned from the gigantic antlers and pelt of a Spectral Moon Moose he killed eons ago. He carries a mighty battle axe, an impenetrable shield, and for some reason has grown a set of hideous space udders

Hobbies:     Ice fishing and ritual murder

Quote:       “I went into a trance of blinding rage. I must have killed a million space apes.  I was sleeping it off, and I woke up with a piss boner. I figure, why waste it, you know? So I’m rubbing one out, and the next thing I know, I’m on stage with GWAR in front of thousands of hideous, acne-ridden teenaged humanoids. I was promised there would be wifi, but it’s hit or miss….”

 

Vulvatron

Size:           Genetically engineered to the optimum proportions for a female of her species

Origin:       Vulvatron has returned from the year 69000, where she was a high-ranking Scumdog assassin in the battle against futuro-fascist forces. Her primary functions include mastery of the arts of war, quantum mechanics, and intergalactic musicology

Position:     Head Bitch In Charge

Features:   Shock-white dreadlocks, high-tech armor, cybernetic implants, boob spew, prominent posterior

Hobbies:     Adapting her superior technology and sexual prowess to the present day, perfecting the chemical formula for Vulvoline – her line of signature drag-racing motor oils, hot yoga

Quote:       “I have summoned Planck quantities of energy to navigate the fabric of space-time back to this primitive era on Earth. I believe our wormhole might have slightly malfunctioned upon my arrival, also ushering in a primeval creature from a far earlier era, vaguely resembling a Moon Moose. I shall have to report this anomaly to maintenance. My mission is to alter the current path of GWAR so that they might prevent the darkest period in the history of the Universe! I have calculated an optimum plan of action to achieve…Hey! Quit staring at my tits!”

 

See the Berserker Blóthar, Vulvatron and the rest of GWAR as they embark upon the GWAR Eternal Tour and search for Oderus Urungus!

gwar b-q smokes attendance records… new gwar frontman introduced!

August 29th, 2014 by jack Comments Off Gwar,News

From Atop a Heap of 5,000 Dead Bodies, GWAR Declares 2014

GWAR B-Q a Success!

Capture

 The 5th Annual GWAR B-Q, held at Hadad’s Lake in Richmond, Virginia on August 16, has been labeled an unequivocal success. This comes from GWAR themselves as they lounge atop the bodies of the more than 5,000 GWAR B-Q attendees, imbibing from their secret stash of Killsner GWAR Beer (which sold out at the GWAR B-Q), chain-smoking the band’s own premium limited edition CiGWARs, and dipping their massive, stinky toes into tubs of ice-cold GWATER.

GWAR’s manager, Sleazy P. Martini, was overjoyed by the event’s turnout: “Every year I tell myself there’s no way these inbred zoo animals can pull off another GWAR B-Q, and there’s no way in hell even more Bohabs will show up and fork over their life savings just for the chance to be roasted on a spit. But every year they prove me wrong, and I get to wipe my ass with a new roll of $1000 bills. The GWAR B-Q is the biggest thing in the history of meat and music, and don’t you forget it scumbags!”

GWAR B-Q broke all previous records for attendance, death count, and casualties. Every band that performed kicked so much ass that GWAR actually let them live. The lineup would go toe-to-toe with any other festival performance anywhere on any day: Body Count, Misfits, The Meatmen, Hatebreed, Iron Reagan, Kepone, Noisem, Occultist, Loincloth, The Glorious Gone, Eat the Turnbuckle, Venomous Maximus. The GWAR B-Q also had the “Crypt of Chaos,” a GWAR-themed haunted house, drunk idiots out on the lake in giant hamster balls, a “Rolling Wheels of Death Skatepark,” tattoo artists, classy ladies doing synchronized swimming, and lots and lots of bloody, delicious meat slathered in GWAR B-Q Sauce.

But of course, the main event of this and every GWAR B-Q was the jaw-dropping, eyeball-popping exhibition by the creators of the human race, our lords and masters, the Scumdogs of the Universe, GWAR! Those in attendance witnessed a blistering set that featured Slymenstra Hymen spitting giant fireballs, the Sexecutioner duking it out with Gor Gor, and the introduction of the band’s new mouthpiece — an enigmatic, old-school Scumdog known only as Blóthar! Punk-rock loudmouth Jello Biafra was thrown into the meat grinder – despite his LONG but heartfelt eulogy at the previous day’sfan memorial for GWAR’s most faithful slave, Dave Brockie. Finally, a cathartic performance of the band’s classic, “The Road Behind” summoned forth an ocean of salty tears from the sea of flaming Bohabs in attendance. All this to say…

GWAR lives! See them live on the GWAR Eternal Tour this fall!

Hail Oderus! 
Hail Flattus!
Hail GWAR!!!

gwar Fall tour 2014 announced…

August 23rd, 2014 by jack Comments Off Gwar,News

GWAR to Embark Upon the “GWAR Eternal Tour 2014”

image001

Oderus is missing. Once the Scumdogs in GWAR finally notice this (it takes them a while to notice stuff) they will set off on a journey to find their departed brother using every resource available – including recruiting an ancient Scumdog warrior. GWAR will need the help from everyone, even the lowliest Bohab, as their enemies are plotting to take advantage of the hole in GWAR‘s ranks.

BalSac The Jaws of Death on The “GWAR Eternal Tour 2014” and what to expect:

“Dark clouds of war and ill omen have gathered around GWAR. In our hour of greatest peril, Oderus has left us and our enemies stand poised, ready to strike while they sense weakness. But we shall no longer cower in our Antarctic stronghold, awaiting Destiny’s final blow. This Fall GWAR sets out on the most trying quest of our career. We shall scour our leader’s favorite stomping ground, North America, leaving no city unsearched, no venue unraised, and no sheep unmolested. GWAR will venture to the depths of Hell or to the very end of Time itself, and though I fear what we may encounter out there, I know that we can never return home until we have the answer we seek: ‘Where is Oderus Urungus?’”

GWAR fans have been mourning the loss of Dave Brockie, GWAR’s founder and lead singer, since March. The “GWAR Eternal Tour 2014” gives them an opportunity to gather and share a bunch of feels as a community while experiencing the sickest band in this or any other world.

Jamison Land, Beefcake the Mighty’s personal slave and bass tech:

“Dave was our friend and anchor for as far back as anyone can remember.  He’s held us together, and sometimes he drove us apart.  He is our brother and we love him. Unlike a lot of prominent musicians, he was friends with all of the fans. He made GWAR fans feel special on a personal level.  The fans love Dave as much as we do and ‘The GWAR Eternal Tour 2014’ is our way of getting together and sharing that love.”

The first leg of the tour will include direct support from Decapitated; the second leg will have direct support from Corrosion of Conformity.  American Sharks will open all shows.  The tour kicks off October 15th in Norfolk, VA and runs through December 13th in Baltimore, MD.  A complete list of dates can be found below.  Tickets go on sale this weekend.

Hail Oderus! Hail GWAR!
