4th Annual GWAR-B-Q Pictures & Audio

Check back often! The Welding Room’s exclusive coverage of the 4th Annual GWAR B-Q from Hadad’s Water Park will be available RIGHT HERE over the course of the next few hours.

Then tune in on Tuesday for a full review of the party in Richmond, Virginia featuring GWAR, Municipal Waste, Pig Destroyer, X-COPS, Warbeast, Battlecross, Wilson, & more!

In the meantime, you can listen to the pre-show interview from last week (below):

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/

LORD DYING Streaming New Album

LORD DYING come from Portland, Oregon, a place over abundant with purveyors of the heavy riff.  A region where the inhabitants are plagued with nerve and joint damage due to lack of sunlight. In a time where everyone is trying to out-sludge or out-doom each other LORD DYING gives something less than a fuck. They are a metal band with members of Black Elk , Portals, Le Force, and Cremains, who in their short, one year’s time as a band have shared the stage with Red Fang, Down, Unsane, Yob, Valient Thorr, Ghost and many others.

LORD DYING’s debut Summon the Faithless is set for release July 9 via Relapse Records.  The album will be available in CD, LP and digital formats, and is available for pre-order HERE.

The band is giving fans a chance to hear Summon the Faithless in its entirety a week before it is released.  Crave Online, is hosting an exclusive stream of the album HERE.

After releasing a self-titled EP in 7″ form, the dudes kicked it up a notch, heading out on national tours with Witch Mountain followed by a long trek with label-mates Red Fang and Black Tusk. Fast forward to 2013 and LORD DYING are poised to be the new heavyweight champions of metal.  Smashing the riffs of High On Fire into the groove of Kylesa, LORD DYING delivered one of the most impressive metal debuts in a long, long time. A young band that matured well beyond their years into a fully developed titanic heavy metal machine, LORD DYING’s new album is poised to be one of the best debuts of 2013.

*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!

“I am excited to get the boys together for one last gig, especially since I have become a member of the Westboro Baptist Church.”

Sherriff Tubb Tucker Motherfucker of All Motherfuckers added:
“Alright you lowlife dirtbags, listen up! X-Cops have been hired on as crowd control for the 4th annual GWAR-B-Q. I’m here to tell all of you faggot punks that we will be in full force to put the beat down on any of you little shits that step out of line! That’s right! After years of deep cover, the original X-Cops team has been reassembled to make sure there’s no bullshit at this fine event. We will be on hand to confiscate all your drugs, accept donations to our policeman’s balls, and thoroughly pat down your girlfriends. So bring drugs, money, and women! As you were.”

Three more bands have been added to the GWAR-B-Q lineup. Fresh off their tour with GWAR, Wilson and Warbeast will be making their first GWAR-B-Q appearance.

Once again Hadad’s will host not one but TWO stages which will be packed with bands all day…and finally there are rumors of a yet-to-be-announced act that will put this year’s GWAR-B-Q 2013 completely over the top!

And we will be premiering our new beer, Impaled Ale? I think this is more fun than the humans deserve! Now I am back to driving tanks into the river! See you there, fuckers!”
