The surviving inhabitants of Planet Earth breathed a collective sigh of relief as the halfway point of GWAR’s two-year long victory lap came and went with only vague reports of minor atrocities being committed in the name of the Universe’s most dangerous band. Speaking with a megaphone from a lofty parapet on the GWAR fortress, instead of proclaiming some cosmic doom, lead throat-thing Oderus Urungus took the opportunity to announce the release date of the new GWAR album, “GWAR’s Bloody Pit of Horror” (out Nov. 9th on Metal Blade Records), and more of the cities slated for destruction on the “Bloody Tour of Horror”, which begins Oct. 2nd in Baltimore, Md.
In a remarkably redundant statement, Oderus was quoted as saying “I hereby announce the release date of the new GWAR album, “GWAR’s Bloody Pit of Horror”, out Nov. 9th on Metal Blade Records, and more of the cities slated for destruction on the “Bloody Tour of Horror”, which begins Oct. 2nd in Baltimore, Maryland.”
The tour, their longest one yet, will take GWAR all over their usual stomping grounds in the U.S. and Canada, and will see the band travel across the Pacific to play their first shows in Australia and New Zealand as a part of the “No Sleep Til” tour. Tickets are on sale starting today HERE
Al-Jazeera today announced that renegade shock-rockers GWAR have recently and secretly returned to North America to begin the final preparations for a host of promo events and concert appearances in their continuing two-year long 25th Anniversary. After a lightening-quick four-month break spent in the band’s hulking south-pole fortress (“fighting penguins…” claimed GWAR front-thing ODERUS URUNGUS, “and working on a new album…”), the band reportedly made landfall late Wednesday evening, arriving in their signature bat-shaped helicopter at an undisclosed location.
In order to publicize their pressing agenda (and display the pressing of genitals), the band (GWAR) announced that on Friday, May 28th, at 10:00 p.m. E.S.T. ODERUS URUNGUS will hold an web-based press conference, which can be viewed at gwar.tv
, where he is expected to mouth-off about the insignificance of humanity and make a long and complicated set of demands. Viewers will be able to ask Oderus questions through the chat room, and he might even answer some of them. You can also check out the press conference streaming at MetalBlade.tv
