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.

CASEY ORR (Rigor Mortis, GWAR) To Fill-In On WARBEAST Tour

WARBEAST is pleased to announce that Casey Orr (Rigor Mortis, GWAR) will join them as their fill-in bassist while on the road this spring. The upcoming Fate or Chaos Tour with GWAR and Wilson kicks off in Tucson, AZ on April 10.

WARBEAST vocalist Bruce Corbitt states, “Obviously, we are all psyched to have Casey on board for this upcoming tour with GWAR and Wilson. I’ve always respected Casey’s professionalism, abilities and musicianship from our many years together in Rigor Mortis.” He continues, “this will be a natural and comfortable fit for WARBEAST. Plus, he’s still buds with all of the guys in GWAR, so this tour will be a blast… to say the least.”

“I am very excited to accept the challenge of playing bass for the mighty WARBEAST! I’m looking forward to crushing skulls with my brothers in the Beast, and I’m totally stoked to be bringing the thunder on the road this April, supporting my Scumdog family – GWAR,” adds Casey Orr. “Texas Thrash will Destroy!”

“This by far will be the most solid lineup to date with Casey Orr joining us for this tour. I’ve known him all of my life and it just seems right,” adds WARBEAST guitarist Scott Shelby. “Casey is hyped as well, as is the whole band to move on to this new era and continue to Destroy!”

“I’m looking forward to the rhythm section being tighter than ever,” states WARBEAST drummer Joey Gonzalez. “I know Casey will be killer to learn from and jam with.”

anselmo_warofgargantuas_cover

Heavy metal legend PHILIP ANSELMO and Texas thrashers WARBEAST are pleased to announce today’s release of their new split album, entitled War of the Gargantuas. The split, released via Housecore Records, includes two songs from each artist. This album serves as the first release of any solo work by PHILIP ANSELMO during the span of his nearly 30-year legacy.

See what the press is saying about War of the Gargantuas:

“Veterans of the scene, WARBEAST don’t simply rely on the ’80s template. Rather, they blow it up and rebuild it into an even more vicious and vital monster… This is everything ANSELMO fans and metal fans have been hoping for and so much more. As with all of his projects, you’ve got to hear it to believe it.” – ArtistDirect.com

“The combination of PHILIP ANSELMO and WARBEAST make War Of The Gargantuas a vicious, brutal onslaught of metal that creates the ultimate teaser for both bands.”- Bloody-Disgusting.com

“…ANSELMO’s solo contributions to an upcoming split with WARBEAST, War of the Gargantuas, so delight me: they sound just, like, completely fucking fucknuts… It sounds as though ANSELMO is about to release the aural equivalent of a broken glass bath.” – MetalSucks.net

In addition to this week’s release of War of the GargantuasDOWN and WARBEAST kick off The Weed & Speed Tour: West Coast Throwdown in the Year of XIII in Houston, TX tonight at Warehouse Live!

WARBEAST/DOWN Tour In Memory Of Mike Scaccia

Sadly, many music fans across the globe learned celebrated Rigor Mortis and Ministry guitarist Mike Scaccia passed away while doing what he loved best—playing music.

While it is with a very heavy heart, WARBEAST will be hitting the road for their West Coast tour with DOWN as planned. Mike would not expect anything less from them, so they will be dedicating the upcoming tour to the memory of Mike Scaccia—one of our generation’s greatest guitarists and certainly one of their closest friends.

Last week, WARBEAST vocalist Bruce Corbitt shared his condolences and thoughts with the community.

“Mike Scaccia left this Earth doing what he loved to do. Tragically, the music world has lost an extremely talented, gifted and unique guitar virtuoso. His music and his legend will live on forever. But a loving husband, father, son and brother, etc; can never be replaced. Mike would be overwhelmed with this outpouring of emotion that has risen from his passing, but he would mainly be proud of the enormous support that everyone has shown towards his family during this devastating time in their lives.”

Corbitt contines,

“We can and we will make sure that Mike’s wife and his kids are taken care of. So, I would like to ask anyone that can make a donation… big or small… do it now. Please understand that this is what would mean the most to Mike.”

Donate to the Mike Scaccia Family Fundraiser, click here.

In addition to the fundraiser effort, Philip Anselmo of Housecore Records came up with the idea for WARBEAST to team up and write some lyrics about Mike Scaccia. WARBEAST already has two songs recorded and in the vault. One of them is the song about Bruce Corbitt’s brother Jeff Corbitt (RIP), of which Bruce has mentioned many times publicly. The other will be a song written about Mike Scaccia. The two songs will be released together with a picture of Mike on one side and a picture of Jeff Corbitt on the other.

Also, Sarah Scaccia (Mike’s daughter) is putting a beautiful book together to honor her father. You may email your personal stories about her Dad, contact her at sjska21@gmail.com. She will compile them together for the book. Let’s share and keep him alive in spirit.

Join WARBEAST and DOWN in honoring the memory of Mike Scaccia’s life on their upcoming tour dates.
