GWAR Announces 'Fate Or Chaos' Tour With DEVILDRIVER, CANCER BATS

July 24, 2012

Intergalactic mutant overlords GWAR are plotting their return to the road this fall. Taking a break from working on their new album as well as an extended arctic slumber, GWAR is back with an entirely new show. Your lords and masters will be wreaking havoc across North America, with support coming from DEVILDRIVER, CANCER BATS and LEGACY OF DISORDER. The tour is currently scheduled to kick off October 12 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and run through November 26 in Millvale, Pennsylvania. More dates are expected to be added in the coming weeks. Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 27 and Saturday, July 28.

When asked for comment on the upcoming tour, GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus muttered something incoherent, then when prodded a bit more muttered something else incoherent. After the third attempt for comment something more intelligible came from the mouth of the warty one:

Said Lord Oderus, "Once again GWAR returns, hoof and nail, to our old stomping grounds, North America, on a tour of utter destruction, and this time nothing less than the greatest power in the universe will do as our primary victim! That's right, this time GWAR, fresh from our battle with Death, takes on another of history's biggest assholes...God himself! Seeing as we don't have the new album done yet, we really had to do something spectacular..."

Oderus belched out a midget and continued. "This tour will also see the arrival of a new Scumdog brother to aid GWAR in our quest to destroy everything that sucks. That's right, I can finally reveal certain details regarding our new album...ever since our missing band mate Flattus Maximus took his leave of Earth, members of the Maximus tribe have been showing up at our Antarctic fortress, not only to pay their respects but also eat all of our food. And also lay tracks on the new album! You see, every member of the Maximus family rips on guitar (though Flattus taught them all they know),and they were anxious to help us fill the void left by Flattus. We have been working with his brothers Pustulus, Infecticus, Bubonus and even the shunned Corpulus...and right now they are fighting it out as to which one of them will stay here with the mighty GWAR for the 'Fate Or Chaos' tour...and beyond! Get ready world, this fall shall see the birth of a new Scumdog!"

Before GWAR takes to the road this fall, they are of course hosting the premiere event of the summer, the third annual GWAR-B-Q. Ring Dog Rescue and Slave Pit Inc. are proud to present the 2012 GWAR-B-Q, being held August 18 at Hadad's Water Park in lovely Richmond, Virginia. Bands on the bill include GWAR, THE CASUALTIES, STRIKE ANYWHERE, VALIENT THORR and GHOUL.
