Here Comes GWAR B-Q!

  

Come celebrate GWAR‘s 30th year of conquest on this fucking shit-hole planet at the most ear-bursting, bone-crushing, mouth-watering, belly-bursting, beer-guzzling, nut-bustingest party of this or any summer! The date is set for the 6th Annual GWAR B-QSaturday, August 15th at Hadad’s Lake (7900 Osborne Turnpike Richmond, VA 23231). 

  

 

This amazing milestone in GWAR‘s torrid history – 30 fucking years! – demands more than just a one-day party. The Scumdogs have set forth a slew of satellite events to be held across Richmond over the three-day weekend of August 14 through 16. GWAR fans will be busier and more fulfilled than during any time in their miserable existence!  

  

 Today, the official commercial for this year’s GWAR B-Q has been released. It can be found here http://youtu.be/14uWvkr0S-w

Watch it, worship your lords and masters GWAR, share it, then watch it again! 

In other GWAR news, your Lords and Masters will be travelling back in time to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the film Empire Records, in which they had a starring role.  GWAR will make an appearance during the anniversary Celebration in Brooklyn, NY April 8 – 10.  More details on GWAR‘s invasion of Brooklyn, NY can be seen HERE.

Finally March 23rd marked a sad anniversary in the GWAR family, as it was the one-year anniversary of founding member Dave Brockie’s (Oderus Urungus) final journey to Valhalla.  We celebrate him on this day as we celebrate and worship him every day.  Hail Oderus!

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 Battle Maximus Available Today

The day has finally arrived. Your lords and masters GWAR have unleashed their 13th and most devastating album to date Battle Maximus. The album can be ordered from Metal Blade Records HEREAmazon and iTunes.

In celebration of the album’s release, GuitarWorld.com the online home of Guitar World Magazine, is hosting an exclusive stream of the instrumental title Track “Battle Maximus”. Check out the song HERE.

Tonight in Richmond, VA at Balliceaux there will be a Battle Maximus release party. The party starts at 8:00 PM and will feature appearances by Oderus Urungus and guitarist Pustulous Maximus. Battle Maximus will be blasting in its entirety, there will be free posters and fans can pick up their copy of the new album for $5.

Continuing their media onslaught, GWAR front thing Oderus Urungus appeared on the Dan Patrick Show yesterday to talk football, the new album and as the case with Oderus a whole lot more. The interview with Oderus, Dan Patrick and Jamey Jasta can be seen HERE.

GWAR will be heading out this fall on the “Madness at the Core of Time” tour. The tour, which features a completely brand-new show full of slavering creatures and deserving victims, is set to kick off October 2nd in Columbus, Ohio and runs through November 17th in Washington, DC. GWAR shall be joined by deathcore heavyweights and label-mates Whitechapel, Richmond, VA thrashers Iron Reagan (featuring Municipal Waste singer Tony Foresta) and A Band of Orcs (who are actually a band of Orcs).

Check out a stream of the song “Bloodbath” 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.

Most GWAR fans know the “Battle Maximus” was the sonic war of fratricide waged by the Maximus clan against themselves in order to choose a successor worthy to follow in Flattus’ clawprints, and was recorded as a song on the new album. Every GWAR fan knows that the awesome Pustulus Maximus triumphed in this struggle. But what most don’t know was the stellar line-up of additional guitarists that contributed solos to this blistering instrumental track. These included Lamb of God’s Mark Duane Morton (who played under the pseudonym “Tyrone Die Tuefel”), Ol Drake from Evile (Twatticus Maximus), and Todd Evans of Mobile Death Camp (also an ex-GWAR member, who for many years played Beefcake the Mighty and contributed to this work under the name Skookum Maximus).

But the biggest outside contribution came from Zach Blair of Rise Against (who had played the character of Flattus before Cory Smoot, and took to this project under the name “Splattus Maximus”. Zach flew into Richmond to GWAR’s “Slave Pit Studios” several times, did much of the writing and arrangement on the record, and finally recorded tons of completely shredding guitar.

Said Zach, “It was so great to re-connect with this family of mine and be reminded of what a great, hard working institution GWAR really is. This organization defines the term “DIY”. If they want to see something or use something that just doesn’t exist, they make it! It’s inspiring to be around and in the ten years since my tenure with them I’d forgotten what a force it is to be reckoned with. I’m so proud of them and I’m so proud of this record.. This record is many things to me a musical send-off and tribute to the late, great Cory Smoot (in the manner of which he would have liked it!) and an extension of my own contribution to this amazing cultural, artistic and musical statement. I’m forever proud to say “I PLAYED IN GWAR!!”

GWAR Confirm 2014 Soundwave Festival Appearance

Fresh off their highly successful and best GWAR-B-Q yet, your lords and masters have announced that they will be conquering yet another festival. That’s right everyone’s favorite Scumdogs, GWAR will be returning to the land down under to wreak havoc and make sweet Kangaroo love with the locals. The first show is Saturday February 22 in Brisbane, followed by shows in Syndey, Melbourne and Adelaide before wrapping up Monday March 3 in Perth.

“Considering it was twice as big as last year’s 2012 GWAR-B-Q and about eight times as slaughter-ific, your Lords and Masters, the mighty GWAR, are semi-satisfied, said lead singer Oderus Urungus, who was contacted at this Antarctican fortress.

“The sheer amount of carnage influcted… I mean I saw whole families just wiped out in the savage glee of the Pit of the GWAR-B-Q, willingly screaming as their bodies were pulped by our giant meat grinder. Every drop of GWAR Beer and GWAR B-Q Sauce was consumed, and all the bands ruled! And loyal bohab Goldmember repeated as Spew-O-Lympic champion it was far and away the greatest GWAR-B-Q yet.”

“Now on to our new album Battle Maximus, the new GWAR album, featuring the debut of new Scumdog, Pustulus Maximus. A new era of GWAR has begun. Hail FLATTUS, Hail GWAR, tell all of your friends that missed the 2013 GWAR-B-Q that they fucked up!”

On playing the Soundwave Festival Oderus said:

“We can’t wait to come back to Australia as part of the colossal Soundwave Festival. Now if we could only figure out how to get there, if we swim, on Gor-Gor’s back, we should be able to decimate Asia nicely.”

GWAR recently announced the first leg of their massive “Madness at the Core of Time” world tour, in support of their new album, Battle Maximus. The tour features a completely brand-new show full of slavering creatures and deserving victims.

GWAR shall be joined by deathcore heavyweights and label-mates Whitechapel, Richmond, VA thrashers Iron Reagan (featuring Municipal Waste singer Tony Foresta) and A Band of Orcs (who are actually a band of Orcs).

GWAR has teamed up with VICE to drop the next tasty morsel from Battle Maximus on your pointy little heads. HERE – read an exclusive interview with Oderus and to hear the premiere of the song Bloodbath.

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 17 via Metal Blade Records. Check out 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.
