Skinless To Headline Delaware Deathfest

NY Death Metal legends SKINLESS have reformed after a 2 year hiatus to headline the third day of Delaware Deathfest this October alongside label-mates Dying Fetus, Exhumed, Ringworm, Howl and Call of the Void plus Suffocation, Deicide, Broken Hope, Brutality and many more!  The 2nd annual Delaware Deathfest takes place October 4-6 in Wilmington, DE at Mojo 13.  More info on the fest is available here.

Commented vocalist Sherwood Webber: 

We’re back, the classic SKINLESS lineup has always had an undeniable live chemistry and it’s time to unleash the beast again. We’re all old buddies and if we have the opportunity to destroy some stages around the world again, it feels right…. who knows what’s next? In keeping with the old SKINLESS credo of not giving a fuck… we’re back to destroy…. we can’t let EXHUMED have ALL the fun! Also….. if you ever told me that we’d be playing with BRUTALITY when I was 15 years old listening to the Screams Of Anguish tape in Noah’s Camaro, I would never have believed it, this is awesome!

Guitarist Noah Carpenter adds:

This is the lineup that put SKINLESS on the metal map, so it’s great to be back. We won’t be the road dogs of the past, but we’ll be playing some select festivals and drinking all their beer. So sit back, slip on your absorbent undergarments, and let the mayhem begin… again!

Skinless Tour Dates:

Oct 6  Wilmington, DE  Delaware Deathfest w/ Brutality, Rings of Saturn, Rivers of Nihil and more

GWAR Hosting Spring Tour Kick-Off Bash

 

Antarctic metal monsters GWAR are kicking off their spring run of dates with a special “Meat and Meet” at the world-famous Grinders in Kansas City, MO. The “Meat and Meet” is scheduled for Monday, April 8 from 6-8pm.

This event is not only for GWAR to drink and eat themselves into a bloated coma with their legions of slavering fans, but to announce and introduce their brand-new and 100% edible “GWAR-B-Q” sauce, personally created for human consumption by none other than GWAR’s steel-faced guitar player, Balsac, the Jaws of Death.

“This new taste sensation is mostly made out of the blood of really hot chicks,” explained the surprisingly cordial space-barbarian. “It was a terrible waste of fine ass, but ultimately worth it because this sauce is absolutely delicious!”

GWAR will be kicking off the second leg of the “Fate or Chaos” tour on April 10. Support on the tour will come from Warbeast and Wilson. All dates can be found on the TOUR DATES page.

The summer will also herald the fourth annual GWAR-B-Q, and this year is shaping-up to have the most colossal, bone-crushing line-up yet! But that’s not all from your toxic mutant under-lords. Rumors of boxed sets, GWAR-B-Q sauce, GWAR beer, and long-awaited “comedy” albums abound. Further details about all of these projects would have to wait until “we get our shit together”, said Oderus.

HOUR OF PENANCE Tour Recap Video, European Winter Dates

Italian death metallers HOUR OF PENANCE will continue to spread their blasphemous verses throughout Europe in the coming weeks whilst touring with brutal legends Cannibal Corpse, DevilDriver and The Black Dahlia Murder.
