“Harbinger” — a follow up to MUTILATION RITES acclaimed underground debut “Empyrean” —  was released last summer via Prosthetic Records. Described as a “nightmarish merger between black, death, d-beat, and doom” (Pitchfork), the album was recorded by long-time friend and producer Kevin Bernsten (TRIAC) and mastered by James Plotkin (Pelican, Isis, SunnO))), Isis). Its eight tracks of “invigorating and nerve-wracking debauchery” (Dead Rhetoric) are perfectly accompanied visually by noted cover artist Valnoir (Psycroptic, Watain, The Black Dahlia Murder).

GWAR-B-Q, DAVE BROCKIE MEMORIAL Details Announced

Presented once again by Slave Pit Inc. and sponsored by Ring Dog Rescue (http://ringdogrescue.org), The 5th Annual GWAR-B-Q and Dave Brockie Memorial will certainly go down in history as one of the most significant events to happen in Richmond since the Civil War. 

In a celebration of the life of David Murray Brockie, a special memorial event will be held FREE to the public from 4:00 PM -7:00 PM ONLY on Aug 15, 2014 at Hadad’s Lake (located at 7900 Osborne Turnpike Richmond, VA 23231). Fans, friends, family and bohabs will have the opportunity to pay their respects, as they drunkenly toast with a GWAR Beer in one hand, while wearing the commemorative Dave Brockie Fund vomit stained t-shirt as Oderus Urungus is set ablaze in a Viking Funeral Pyre on the lake.

In keeping with the tradition of past GWAR-B-Q’s, Slave Pit Inc. has revealed the first bands confirmed for the event.  The GWAR-B-Q will feature the heaviest, and most legendary line up of bands that the metal and punk scenes have to offer. Heavyweights such as Hatebreed, hometown heroes Kepone, with former GWAR member Beefcake, the infamous Meatmen, featuring the Dutch Hercules, Tesco Vee and a very special appearance by the Original Gangsters, Body Count, where TV executives were bribed and beaten to get Ice-T off the set of Law and Order SVU.

 

For a full lineup of bands visit http://www.gwarbq.com

“The magnitude of heavy bone crushing acts at this year’s GWAR-B-Q is enough to …aahhh …crush bone” said Bonesnapper, GWAR’s body guard.

And if that’s not enough, there is plenty more filthy fun to overload your senses, leaving you bloated, basted, and completely broke. There will be more meat than ever, boatloads of  “GWAR-B-Q” sauce to slather all over it, GWAR’s new beer “Killsner” to wash it down your bottomless and gaping feed-hole, as well as an infinite number of port-o-john vomitorium kissing booths for full body evacuation. Just like last year, the affair will be held at the only venue capable of handling such a stupendous event, the legendary Hadad’s Lake.

Check out the venue at http://hadadslake.com/ 

As our beloved bohabs would come to expect, the Slave Pit has yet again produced its customary GWAR-B-Q commercial commemorating the beastly birthday of the 5th Annual GWAR-B-Q. This year’s clip heavily features Oderus Urungus’ final film performance. Although, Oderus will not be there physically, his spirit will reign over the event.

Hail Oderus! View the commercial HERE.

GWAR B-Q IS ON, RAIN OR SHINE!

Spew-O-Lympics Contestants List and a Ton of Other Stuff About upcoming GWAR-B-Q Announced

GWAR B-Q IS ON, RAIN OR SHINE, 8/17 @ HADAD’S WATER PARK IN RICHMOND, VA

With the biggest, sickest, most debauched party of the summer drawing inexorably closer, Slave Pit Inc. today released “a butt-load” of last-minute details about their 4th annual “GWAR-B-Q”, to be held Sat., Aug. 17th at Hadad’s Water Park in Richmond, Va. The event will be held RAIN OR SHINE. Nothing short of nuclear holocaust can stop GWAR, and even that is highly debatable… the GWAR B-Q is on, NO MATTER WHAT!!!

As far as tickets are concerned please pay close attention– everybody who bought an e-ticket online must have a hard copy of EACH TICKET for entry– that means following all the links provided in the email that was sent to you and printing a hard copy of every ticket. That means if you bought more than one ticket, you must have copies for every individual ticket purchased, so be sure to follow every link and print everything you can. YOU MUST HAVE HARD COPIES OF EVERY INDIVIDUAL TICKET IN ORDER TO GAIN ADMITTANCE. Klar? Klar! That’s “clear” for us Americans.

Deluxe ticket sales have ended, but official GWAR-B-Q 2013 t-shirts will be available for purchase at the event. There will also be raffle tickets available at the merch booth with your chance to win any number of a host of valuable prizes. (See Below) There will be no weapons, pets, video cameras or glass allowed anywhere within Hadads, and backpacks and coolers will be checked by Hadad’s security at the gate. Remember GWAR fans, we are guests at Hadads, and if we want to continue this fine tradition we must respects the perfectly reasonable requests of our host… plus GWAR commands it!

No effort has been spared to make this the most spectacular GWAR B-Q yet, and this year that includes providing the faithful GWAR fans with a skate park truly worthy of a GWAR B-Q. A legion of slaves has been laboring ceaselessly to create it, and their efforts are a complete GO, featuring a half-pipe, ¼ pipes, a fun box (whatever the hell that is), grind rails, and finally a bike launch ramp, supplied by FBM Bike Co. These are all open to the public so bring your skate, bike, or rocket-sled.

Of course the memory of GWAR’s departed Scumdog brother, Flattus Maximus, will always be with us, and many flagons of GWAR BEER (brewed especially for the GWAR B-Q by Tampa‘s Cigar City Brewery) will be hoisted to honor his legend. There will be a special “Flattus Shrine” booth set up full of Smoot shirts and music, and all proceeds garnered here will go straight to the Smoot Family Fund.

Finally, there will be a car pool available for anybody that gets too loopy to pilot their vehicle. This does not mean for you to drive your car into the pool, it means you can get a free ride if you are too wasted. The safety of our fans and other humans is of the highest priority for the Slave-Pit, so your soul can be saved for GWAR’s to do with as they please. Please check the schedules at http://www.gwarbq.com or 2BNB.org or in order to ensure everybody has a accident-free GWAR-B-Q experience.

Spew-Lympian Ian Hussey demonstrates part of grueling training ritual

Slave Pit also announced the participants in this years Spew-O-Lympics, the second time the GWAR-B-Q has hosted this semi-aquatic flail-fest. Contestants were required to submit a short essay on why they felt they should be considered to participate in this hallowed event, the top selections being picked by the band themselves (in a completely random manner).

“We are pleased not only to announce the winners, but are also surprised that forty of our fans could actually write a semi-coherent collection of words, let alone string them together in a coherent fashion,” said GWAR lead singer Oderus Urungus.

“For this effort they will be allowed to flail, flop, and flagellate themselves in front of a jeering crowd, as they are pelted with garbage… all for valuable prizes!”

To get the full listing of the winners on the band’s official Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/gwar, or the official GWAR B-Q website at http://www.gwarbq.com. The contestants must get to the registration area (near the merch booth) as quickly as possible after doors open at 10:30, in order to get their nickname and number and prepare for the first event, which starts promptly at 12:30.

A sampling of some of the amazing prizes available — and yes, that is a real guitar

The prize packages are full of valuable GWAR merchandise, though it looks like our grand prize, the “S.S. Boat” may have exploded and sank in an unexplained accident that “killed a lot of guys.”

“It’s a complete tragedy,” said eyewitness James Nasium.

“My car got dirty.”

Unfortunately, the organizers of the event are sad to announce the cancellation of the band LOINCLOTH from the days festivities. Guitar player Tannon Penland and members of his family were involved in a serious, but non-life threatening automobile accident, that will make it impossible for the band to perform. Said injured band member Tannon Penland from his hospital bed…

Loincloth guitar player Tannon Penland

“I am truly fucking bummed between doses of morphine and dilaudid that Loincloth cannot be slaughtering alongside our many mighty brothers, mutants, and sisters at this year’s GWAR-B-Q. We shall return!”

There is no word yet as to whether or not the empty slot will be filled.

Rain or shine, it’s all systems GO for this years most debauched gathering of the summer and the greatest GWAR-B-Q in history. See all of you faithful bohabs there at Hadad’s, Aug. 17th, 2013! HAIL FLATTUS, HAIL THE BOHABS… AND HAIL GWAR!!!

GWAR is set to release Battle Maximus their 13th studio album, and their first since legendary Scumdog Flattus Maximus returned to the stars to fulfill his cosmic destiny. The album will be available September 17th via Metal Blade Records. You can hear the first track, “Madness at the Core of Time” on The Welding Room radio program and pre-order your copy of Battle Maximus HERE.

GWAR’s Battle Maximus features twelve brand new tracks that not only honor their departed ally, but tells the story of GWAR’s latest struggle against what may be their greatest enemy yet… the insidious “Mr. Perfect”, who has travelled through time itself to steal the power of GWAR — the power of immortality, and use this power to mutate the human race into his twisted vision of what the “perfect” human should be. Once again GWAR finds themselves as the only thing standing between the human race and the latest super-powered shithead bent on the destruction of GWAR and the enslavement of their worshippers.

This marks the band’s first ever Billboard chart debut! War of Will also peaked at #3 on the US iTunes metal chart on the day of release.

BATTLECROSS comments on the chart debut:

“This is just amazing! We are really grateful and honored that fans like our record enough to pick it up when there are so many great releases out this summer. We’re truly humbled by this outpouring of support and we are very proud that War of Will is getting such great reviews from around the world. We share this achievement with Co-Producers Eyal Levi and Mark Lewis from Audiohammer Studio, our management, and Metal Blade Records, as they’ve been a huge part of this record. Thank you to everyone!”

The band is on tour as part of the Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Tour with Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, Machine Head, Mastodon and more. BATTLECROSS made an undeniable impact on fans, both old and new, through insane walls of death and just plain shredding. If the fest has yet to hit your town, make sure to check rockstarmayhemfest.com for details and tickets!

BATTLECROSS triumphantly return as one of the true champions of American Heavy Metal with their devastating sophomore release, War of Will. Co-produced at Audio Hammer Studios by famed producers Mark Lewis and Eyal Levi, the sophomore effort from Detroit’s newest soldiers of steel will soon prove as one of the most impressive follow-up releases, destined to become a heavy metal classic for fans of all sub-genres.

War of Will triggers a strange Déjà Vu while feeling completely brand new” says Levi.

“another essential listen for thrash fans worldwide” – Big Cheese Magazine (UK)

“The level of musical and compositional progression here is startling, to be quite honest… The effect as a whole is energetic and fist-pumping to the extreme, ushering in a beacon of hope for American metal in 2013” – Zero Tolerance Magazine (UK)

“Get ready for Battlecross to move up to headlining status by the conclusion of this album’s touring cycle. War Of Will is a rallying cry for American metal, synthesizing the best of all sides of the extreme, thrash, and modern genres to champion for the genre” – DeadRhetoric.com

BIO:

Most high school friends can’t even stand to look at each other once school’s out, but in the case of vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key, they decided to spend even more time together after graduation.

Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, they joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, a band they’ve coined as humorcore. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

Almost 100 percent do-it-yourself, Psychostick never strays from its signature sound, a combination of heavy music Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed would be proud of and wit and humor that would make Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic holler with laughter.

(L- R) – Alex “Shmalex” Dontre – Drums | Josh “The J” Key – Guitar | Rob “Rawrb” Kersey – Vocals | Matty J “Moose” – Bass

With two full-length albums behind them – We Couldn’t Think of a Title and Sandwich, the band released their latest record, Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D, in 2011, following it up with a tour with Mushroomhead to add to their total count of 21 nationwide tours that have hit 47 states.

 

GWAR/HATEBREED Co-Headline Dates Announced

Joining the fun will be Richmond, VA’s Iron Reagan, featuring members of Municipal Waste and Cannabis Corpse.

GWAR is gearing up for the 4th Annual GWAR-B-Q (enter to win tickets on The Welding Room) and the release of a new album in the early fall. Razor and Tie recording artists Hatebreed will be continuing their support of their newest release, The Divinity of Purpose. 

Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta; about the upcoming mini-tour:

“We’re extremely happy to finally hook up some GWAR/Hatebreed dates after years of trying to get our schedules to connect! We’ll have spent this entire summer rocking stages in Europe so it will be great to get back to the good ole USA, to get down & dirty in the clubs with our favorite mutants from Antarctica. These gigs are not to be missed!”

GWAR front-thing Oderus made a simpler comment, “GWAR and Hatebreed together is really gonna fuck some people up.”
