News Bits: GWAR’s New Album Title Revealed And Gogol Bordello Release Their Video For ‘Pala Tute’

Gypsy punkers Gogol Bordello have released their video “Pala Tute” from their new album “Trans-Continental Hustle”. The album came out a few months ago via American Records and was produced by Rick Rubin (Slayer, Beastie Boys). The video is definitely well made and one of the coolest videos I’ve seen in a while. Enjoy!

 
Read past the break for the news on GWAR! Official Press Release: 

“Our new album is called Bloody Pit of Horror,” said ODERUS URUNGUS, front-thing and leading female impersonator. ‘We are fully aware that there is a movie of the same title, I assure you it has nothing to do with it, save the title, which we stole from them. But you see, we’re calling it “GWAR’s Bloody Pit of Horror”, and that’s a little different, so hopefully we won’t get sued!!

The new album is reportedly “heavy as fuck”, and features songs like “Hail to Genocide”, “Storm is Coming”, and “Tick-Tits”. “That’s a song about a chick whose tits are covered in ticks…big fat gray puffy ones”, said Oderus. A full track listing and official release date is expected soon.

In other GWAR news, the Slave Pit, GWAR’s pit of slaves, located in Richmond, VA. (because of the excellent crack and large art school), is busily preparing for the re-awakening of an ancient GWAR tradition, the GWAR-B-Que! Back in the early days of GWAR, the slaves used to throw parties in the Pit in the hopes of attracting helpless women. These parties grew in size and fury as other bands and insane artists got involved…but then just stopped happening…

“Because of 9/11, man…” said Slave Pit spokesman James Nasium.

But the GWAR-B-Q is back! On August 8th, 2010, at the Bike Lot in Richmond, Va.! Check www.gwarbq.com for full details, directions, and more.

GWAR’s new album, “GWAR’s Bloody Pit of Horror” is out this fall on Metal Blade Records. In the meantime look for GWAR back in Europe this summer, at the Bloodstock fest and more!
