New “GWAR-B-Q” Commercial Released – Tickets to Go On Sale on June 6th

New “GWAR-B-Q” Commercial Released

Tickets to Go On Sale on June 6th

GWAR-B-Q 2013 Commercial
GWAR-B-Q 2013 Commercial
In keeping with the tradition of past GWAR-B-Q’s, Slave Pit Inc. today 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.

 

Tickets for this barbaric extravaganza will be available June 6th at www.gwarbq.com, and come in three different versions…

 

But wait! Before you buy your tickets, check out the “Win It Before You Can Buy It” contest on local Richmond radio station 102.1 the X, airing June 3rd-7th. Listen for your chance to win tickets which grant you full access to the GWAR-B-Q, “Meat and Beat”, the “B4BQ”, and the “GWAFTER PARTY EVENT”, plus the chance to become GWAR’s “Slave for a Day”, which could entail duties as critically important as draining the pus from Pustulus’ scabby leg-enders, to sitting around backstage in everybody’s way while getting completely hammered until you are thrown into a trash dumpster. What fun!

 

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-Q2012 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 mightyGWAR.

 

“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 affiar 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 bonafide 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 17th, 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 greatestGWAR-B-Q yet!

On this co-headlining trek, NAPALM DEATH will be selling tour-exclusive t-shirts designed by artist Sean Taggart (CRUMBSUCKERS, AGNOSTIC FRONT). In regards to these special tees, bassist Shane Embury comments: “As everyone should know, we grew up on a steady diet of the musically extreme, be it death/thrash metal or hardcore punk! Two album covers stood out to us back in the day more than any others as being both satirical and serious at the same time–those being CRUMBSUCKERS’ ‘A Life of Dreams’ and AGNOSTIC FRONT’s ‘Cause for Alarm.’ To me, those album covers capture my youth and enthusiasm for what has now become our lives: playing the music we love all around the world. So with this tour coming up with MUNICIPAL WASTE in the US, we thought to ourselves, ‘Why not get in touch with Sean Taggart—the man behind those covers and all of the awesome flyers from CBGB’s back in the day—and ask if he would do an exclusive shirt, just for us?!'”

Sean agreed to make the shirts for NAPALM DEATH since, as he says, “they’re the heaviest motherfuckers ever!”

To get your shirt, be sure to visit the merch table at one of NAPALM DEATH’s upcoming shows. These tees won’t be available online, so this will be your only chance to have this exclusive, wearable piece of art!

NAPALM DEATH will be touring in support of their critically acclaimed new album, Utilitarian, which was released this past February. Read on for a few reviews of this new NAPALM classic:
