GWAR Releases Video For Acoustic Version Of 'F**k This Place'
April 30, 2021
May 28 will see the release of GWAR's "The Disc With No Name" via Pit Records. The EP is a limited-edition 12-inch picture disc, which is sold out at GWAR.net, but limited quantities will be available at indie retail stores in the U.S. starting at the end of next month.
"The Disc With No Name" features unplugged versions of four GWAR classics, completely reimagined and rearranged with acoustic instruments.
Today, your Lords and Masters have unveiled a new epic video for the acoustic version of "Fuck This Place".
Guitarist Pustulus Maximus confessed: "I forgot to pay my electric bill so we were forced to rehearse acoustically and this is the result. The GWAR, the bad, and the ugly."
Singer Blóthar the Berserker had a somewhat more confusing take: "This isn't what I thought they meant by 'unplugged.' I haven't been able to muster a turd for years."
The idea to release the EP came during last year's quarantine following the band's heart wrenching, emotional and ridiculous acoustic performance for The A.V. Club during their quarantine sessions. With this release, the band looks back wistfully on eons of murderous rock and roll and the lonesome time of the great Gwarantine of 2020.
Blóthar had this to say: "During the quarantine of 2020 I spent long, lonely days with my hand down my pants, hiding out in a fortress made entirely of rolls of toilet paper, drinking hand sanitizer and watching '1000-Lb Sisters'... which is business as usual for me. So I was relieved when I got the call to lay down some vocals on 'The Disc With No Name'. We recorded this record over the telephone, which was fine with me, because I can't stand to be in the same room as the other members of GWAR."
"The Disc With No Name" track listing:
01. Fuck This Place 02. Gonna Kill You
01. I'll Be Your Monster 02. The Road Behind
Dave Brockie, who fronted GWAR under the name Oderus Urungus, was found dead in his home in Richmond, Virginia in March 2014. According to Virginia's State Medical Examiner's Office, he died from acute heroin toxicity by accidental means.
Brockie was last remaining original member of GWAR, which was founded 37 years ago. He was 50 years old.
The satirical metal band earned a following for its macabre, over-the-top costumes, offensive lyrics and graphic, gore-soaked shows, in which the bandmembers performed as the descendants of alien warriors who arrived on Earth to enslave and slaughter the human race.
