GWAR and FU MANCHU have both inked deals with DRT Entertainment, the independent label founded last year by senior music industry executives Derek Shulman, Ron Urban and Ted Green. GWAR's forthcoming follow-up to 2001's "Violence Has Arrived" will mark the group's first release since leaving Metal Blade Records, who have issued all of the band's recordings to date with the exception of their 1988 debut, "Hell-O". FU MANCHU were previously signed to Mammoth Records, which officially closed its doors in 2002. A live album, entitled "Go For It…Live!", was released last year through SPV Records.
