GWAR has just added CLUTCH as a co-headliner to this year’s GWAR B-Q! And as if that weren’t enough to melt your pathetic mind, the B4BQ launch pre-party will now feature the entire lineup of the hard hitting Summer Slaughter Tour, who will join metal heavy weights Fear Factory and the highly awaited return of Coal Chamber!

That’s right, GWAR-B-Q has grown to include three stages of brutal music! CLUTCH will join the already stellar lineup of bands set to rock the Slaughterama Stage with the heaviest grooves on the planet.


The B4BQ started as a small gathering prior to GWAR-B-Q, but this year the event will come into its own as a full day of eardrum blasting metal madness at The National (708 E Broad St, Richmond, VA) on Friday, August 14th. The pre-party event kicks off at 2:00 PM and features Coal Chamber, Fear Factory, Arch Enemy, Born Of Osiris, Veil of Maya, The Acacia Strain, Obscura, After the Burial, Cattle Decapitation, and Beyond Creation. That’s ten bands! That’s one band for each finger to clinch together into two heavy metal fists of fury as you punch your way through the mosh pit.

TRIVIUM Free Download, Tour Dates

Trivium vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy,

Vengeance Falls is the culmination of everything we’ve gone through; the representation of struggle endured from within and experienced from the world. Every failure and every success has led us to this moment. Vengeance Falls is this moment in time.”

Producer David Draiman added,

Vengeance Falls is a masterpiece of metal. It is their finest work to date, and a record so strong that it will blow the doors open to a world they deserve to dominate.”

Long hailed as one of modern metal’s most powerful live acts, Trivium will hit the road hard in support of Vengeance Falls, kicking off with a North American co-headline tour alongside DevilDriver. The dates get underway Thursday, September 12 at Boise, Idaho’s Knitting Factory and then continue through October 17 in San Diego, California. In the meantime, the Orlando, Florida-based band will spend the remainder of this summer lighting up Europe, including upper-bill appearances at such hard rock festivals as Germany’s Wacken, Bucharest, Romania’s Rock The City 2013, Spain’s Resurrection Fest, Sweden’s Getaway Rock Festival, Czech Republic’s Brutal Assault, and Germany’s ELB-RIOT and X Rockfest.
