Additional 4th Annual GWAR-B-Q Details Announced

Slave Pit Inc., creators of GWAR and a slew of other naughty products, today announced new details regarding the summer’s most eagerly anticipated entertainment apocalypse, the 4th Annual GWAR-B-Q, to be held August 17 at Hadad’s Water Park in Richmond, Va. Attendees can now add not one but TWO new social events to be held the same weekend as the GWAR-B-Q – the “B4-B-Q” (to be held the night before at The Canal Club), and the “GWA-fter Party” (after the GWAR-B-Q, for those of you who are morons). In addition, the directors of GWAR’s coveted “Spew-O-Lympics”, a centerpiece event of every GWAR-B-Q, released a statement regarding this year’s event and the incredible prize package some lucky Spew-lympian will ultimately attain. A full feast of fun awaits the teeming masses as Richmond prepares for the most action-packed weekend in the glorious history of the GWAR-B-Q!

Artist Rendition of Typical GWAR Fan Before and After GWAR-B-Q

On Friday, Aug.16, the festivities begin with the “B4-B-Q”, a power-packed line-up of brutal bands to be held at Richmond’s venerated Canal Club, which for the last two years has hosted the Cory Smoot Memorial Show. Admission is FREE to any GWAR-B-Q ticket holder, so be sure to bring a copy of your ticket, or a receipt, or the actual ticket (if you are an idiot). Check the “B4-B-Q” event page on the official GWAR Facebook page for more information.

Hosted by the personal Slaves of Oderus and Balsac, Dave Brockie and Mike Derks, doors open at 7 and the line-up consists of, in no particular order:

Apocalypse Dudes / RVA

U.S. Bastards / RVA

Savage Attack / RVA

Bloody Crackdown / RVA

Red Box Money Cult / Roanoke

Rong / Wilmington

Stuck Backwards / Norfolk

With GWAR, Municipal Waste, Corrosion of Conformity, Pig Destroyer, and the reunion of the legendary X-Cops, this years’ bill is possibly the greatest yet assembled in the blood-spattered history of GWAR’s ever-expanding festival. So this year’s Spew-O-Lympics intends to match this majesty with the most epic contest yet conceived, with events scheduled to include the “King of the Swing”, “Beware of the Blob”, with the climactic battle for supremacy (and valuable prizes) waged on the  “Sperm and Slide”. This years contest will be limited to a lucky 25 entrants, who must sign-up in advance via GWAR’s Facebook page. Look for more details on the official GWAR Facebook page .

And if that’s not enough filthy fun for you, the fine folks at Slave Pit have scheduled one last event that should satiate even the most unappeasable bohab’s desire to bask in the dubious glory of all things GWAR–the “GWA-fter Party”. Held on Saturday, August 17 at Balliceaux, in Richmond, VA., and hosted by the internationally matchless DJ Pari, the event is free not only to GWAR-B-Q ticket holders but also everybody else in the entire world. Doors are at ten, and look for more information at the “GWA-fter Party” events page on the official GWAR Facebook page/

Win Tickets To GWAR-B-Q on The Welding Room!

The Welding Room and Freeman Promotions have your chance to win a pair of tickets to GWAR B-Q! Listen to The Welding Room every Tuesday from 3-7pm ET and Thursday from 5-7pm ET for details.

*Grand prize winner will also have an opportunity to appear on stage with GWAR, and be ground into pulp in the gore-choked meat grinder!

In keeping with the tradition of past GWAR-B-Q’s, Slave Pit Inc. released their latest commercial hyping what will certainly go down in history as the greatest GWAR-B-Q yet, presented once again by the Slave Pit and sponsored by Ring Dog Rescue. With tickets scheduled to go on sale in two weeks, the countdown is on for the most decadent, delicious, and downright depraved social event for mutant miscreants in the history of this mud-ball planet! Check out the cinematic masterpiece HERE, directed by the same Slave responsible for the last two GWAR-B-Q commercials.

Win GWAR-B-Q Tickets on The Welding Room! Listen every Tuesday & Thursday for details

Tickets for this barbaric extravaganza available now, only at www.gwarbq.com, and come in three different options:

Standard Ticket – $30: All Day Event Entry – all the bands, all the fun, all the flailing! Completely free for the low price of 30 bucks!

Deluxe Ticket- $40: All Day Event Entry – all the fun, farts, and flailing, as well as an “official” 2013 GWAR-B-Q T-shirt, actually rubbed on Beefcake’s ass at one point or another.

Premium Ticket – $100: All Day Event Entry, Official GWAR-B-Q T-shirt, GWAR-B-Q 2012 DVD, (see if you can find yourself throwing up) and an exclusive laminate VIP Pass for the “Meat & Beat” signing, where you can meet and hang out with the band, take photos to your hearts delight, and watch in horror as your hot or not hot girlfriend is dragged all too willingly into the special “Abyss of Abuse”, to be sullied in ways unthinkable. This ticket also includes free admission to the “B4BQ,” and the GWAFTER PARTY EVENT, where you can hang with the band and the artists of GWAR in a rare out of costume experience.  More details will be announced in the coming weeks. You will also have the chance to win an opportunity to appear on stage with GWAR, and be ground into pulp in our gore-choked meat grinder.
For those of you who were just born, or simply didn’t give a shit (which is practically unthinkable!), the GWAR-B-Q is GWAR’s annual summer slaughter-fest presenting some of the heaviest, most awesome bands the metal and punk scenes has to offer. Stemming from it’s original roots as a semi-annual party, the event has grown every year in the scope of its majesty, and this year promises to be the most incredible one yet, with a lineup that includes such heavyweights as Richmond hometown heroes Municipal Waste, the legendary Corrosion of Conformity, the aural devastation of Pig Destroyer, and a very special reunion of the infamous X-Cops, who are coming out of hiding after a 17-year hiatus spent running meth labs in Ecuador (and a host of other naughty things).  All the original members shall reunite for the GWAR-B-Q to open for the mighty GWAR.

“Just because we have all of the original members doesn’t mean the band hasn’t been progressing,” said Cobb Knobbler, the X-Cops gay, satanic, Nazi bass player.

“I for one have been exploring the world of drug dog law enforcement…not handling the animals, but actually becoming one, through a series of extremely painful and expensive surgical procedures…the results of which I plan on unveiling at the actual GWAR-B-Q., giving me the legal right to ravage your genitals in search of cocaine!”

At this point the lineup for the days entertainment has been finalized, and two stages will barely be enough to present the enormous rock and rock spectacle that Slave Pit and Ring-Dog Rescue (http://ringdogrescue.org) shall present. The set times have yet to be finalized, but it should run something like this…

GWAR
Municipal Waste
Corrosion of Conformity
Pig Destroyer
Cannabis Corpse
Loincloth
X-Cops
Warbeast
Battlecross
Wilson
Mobile Death Camp
Volture
Kung-Fu Dykes

And if that’s not enough, there is plenty more filthy fun to overload your senses, leaving bloated, beastly, and completely broke. There will be more meat than ever, and boatloads of GWAR’s new GWAR-B-Q sauce to slather all over it, as well as GWAR’s new beer to wash it down your bottomless and gaping feed-hole. Just like last year, the affair will be held at the only venue capable of handling such a stupendous event — the legendary Hadad’s Water Park…check out the details at http://hadadslake.com

So get ready to experience the ultimate spectacle of music, meat and mayhem, as the undisputed Masters of Shock Rock prepare to unleash the greatest GWAR-B-Q in the history of this non-stop orgy of sun, fun, meat, murder, music, and straight up MAYHEM! What started years ago as a party for GWAR’s wretched Slaves has mutated into a bona fide festival that grows every year in the scope of its debauchery.  Come take part in this Barbaric Bacchanalia!

Damn the torpedoes and let slip the dogs of war! Hail GWAR, hail Flattus, and gather with the tribe of GWAR in Richmond, VA on or around Saturday August 17, 2013. But get there a day early for the “B4BQ” and then get ready for what is certain to go down in history as the greatest GWAR-B-Q yet!

“Once again we blow the horn of war and set into motion the gears that grind us towards the greatest GWAR-B-Q yet,” said unrepentantly horny front-thing Oderus Urungus, fresh off debuting GWAR’s new “GWAR-B-Q” sauce at a strongly attended event at the world-famous Grinders in Kansas City (see more details HERE).

“We will not only be rockin’ like Dokken and slippin’ the cock in, but we will be shoving a wealth of GWAR productions down your throat… not only our new GWAR-B-Q sauce, but our very own beer, Impaled Ale! Eat and drink yourself into a diabetic stupor, then puke it all up in the slam pit! It’s gonna fucking rule!”

TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY Streaming Full Album

Agonia Records

Ruralizer, the debut album from Southern Rock-inspired Doom Metal act TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY is streaming in its entirety here

Available now in Europe, Ruralizer is coming to North American shops on April 16.

Music of TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY is a classic blend of feisty Stoner/Southern Rock and Doom Metal, with catchy guitar solos and old-school heavy metal parts that may remind of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Corrosion Of Conformity, Pride and Glory, Down, Black Sabbath, or even ZZ Top. Apart from Hard Rock instruments, the band also uses a banjo and Hammond organs.

The album features guest appearances by electric guitar virtuoso Mario Percudani (Hungry Heart, Mitch Malloy), Hammond maestro Paolo “Apollo” Negri (Wicked Minds, Black Widow, Hasselvander) and Razor SK (Forgotten Tomb).

Joe Hasselvander (ex-Pentagream / The Hounds Of Hasselvander) called the album, “Good old swamp infested blues metal”

Ruralizer consists of 8 original songs and a cover of Mountain’s Mississippi Queen with a playing time of almost 50 minutes. The album will be made available on Digipack CD and digital download. Ruralizer was recorded at Elfo Studios by Daniele Mandelli who is also in charge of mix and mastering.

The band commented:

“We’re very proud of how the album came out and we strongly believe it’s the perfect way to begin our legacy. People into heavy, ballsy southern-tinged Hard Rock should take note!”

Tracklisting:
1. Old Blood
2. Acid Overlord
3. Graveyard Blues
4. Hellfire Rodeo
5. Ruralizer
6. Bite The Dust (and bleed)
7. At The Bitter End
