GWAR Continues Global Domination; Announces Australian Headline Dates

Crushing Line-Up Will Feature’s Soundwave’s Heaviest
Amon Amarth, Satyricon and The Black Dahila Murder

As they continued to prepare the Scumship for war, the unstoppable force known as GWARhas announced two Australian headline shows in addition to their highly anticipated appearances at this year’s Soundwave Festival. The first show is set for Wednesday February 26th in Sydney at the Factory Theater, and the second headline show is scheduled forFebruary 17th in Melbourne at 170 Russell. Supporting the Scumdogs on these two dates of devastation are Amon Amarth, Satyricon and The Black Dahlia Murder.

“The sickest, heaviest, most beastly bands of this year’s Soundwave will be joining forces to create the most hideous noise ever,” said notorious asshole Oderus Urungus, lead singer of GWAR and despoiler of the planet Remulak. “It’s an amazing line-up and I fully expect to see mounds of flaming corpses where once stood smiling fans.”

In other GWAR news that you probably heard about already, the most tasteless band in rock recently announced they would be bringing more of it! That’s right, the most disgusting spectacle in rock ‘n roll history is coming all the way from their homeland of Antarctica to the Land of the Rising Sun. After 28 years of relentless touring, getting lost and other general mayhem, GWAR is finally playing Japan!

After playing the gigantic Soundwave Festival in Australia and a couple of special headline dates, GWAR will travel north to play two exclusive shows in Japan, where legions of GWARfans have been waiting patiently for years for their chance to die in the presence of their hulking metal overlords. Their wishes shall at last come true on Thursday, March 6th at Big Cat in Osaka, Japan, and Friday, March 7th at Akasaka Blitz in Tokyo. Tickets are on sale now.

Battle Maximus can be ordered from Metal Blade Records HEREAmazon and iTunes.

GWAR Frontman Oderus Urungus to Appear on “Insane Clown Posse Theater” Tonight on Fuse

GWAR lead throat thing, the one and only Oderus Urungus will make his return to Fuse tonight as he guest stars on Insane Clown Posse Theater.  The show features Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope’s twisted take on what’s new in music and popular culture.  Every week, Insane Clown Posse views a mix of music videos and viral clips and provides uninhibited commentary, as only they can. Insane Clown Posse Theater airs at 11:30 PM EST/10:30 PM CST. In a landmark decision to class up their show even more, the Clowns decided to invite the Lord and Master of the Universe Oderus Urungus to take part in the mayhem.

A preview for tonight’s episode as well as a web exclusive interview with Oderus can be seen HERE.

“I had a great time in the Big Apple w/ ICP, making fun of idiotic videos, molesting their girlfriends in the mop closet, and making entire bologna-logs disappear up my ass,” said rock and roll’s most asinine front-thing. “And once again Fuse had the balls to put GWAR on TV. But isn’t it about time we had our own TV show? Who do I need to have sex with?” quoth Oderus.

In other GWAR news that you probably heard about already, Oderus and company recently announced they would be bringing the most legendary spectacle in rock ‘n roll all the way from Antarctica to the Land of the Rising Sun. After 28 years of relentless touring, recording and general mayhem,GWAR is finally playing Japan!

GWAR Battle Maximus Available Today

“Madness at the Core of Time” Tour Kicks off October 2nd
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.

If you missed PGHMUSICMAG’s recent interview with Oderus you need to go HERE

 

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.

 

But that’s not all; Oderus has taken over the satellites at SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal.  Every hour today through 2:00 AM tomorrow morning, the Warty One will be introducing new songs fromBattle Maximus.  That’s a new GWAR song every hour!

 

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 ofGWAR–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!!”

Oderus of GWAR checks in with PITTSBURGH MUSIC MAGAZINE to talk Battle Maximus/ Live at Mr. Smalls 9/14

Just got off the phone with Oderus Urungus, leader and  intergalactic humanoid barbarian of GWAR, where we talked about their new release Battle Maximus.  I have had the pleasure of listening to the entire release and I have to tell you that it is the strongest effort that GWAR has ever released in my humble opinion.  GWAR gets overshadowed by their show rather than their musicianship for reasons that are obvious had you ever witnessed a GWAR show, and that is not to slight their musical prowess in any way…its just their show is that amazing and fun.  But, with this album GWAR can silence the naysayers and critics who say that all GWAR can do is throw fake blood and jump around in costumes.  True fans have been clued in for years and now many may open their minds and ears to the fact that there is much more going on sonically.  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.   Listen here as we talk to Oderus about the new album and practicing for the tour, The GWARBQ, Fox Channel, Syria, G-pen vaporizer endorsements, and what we should do with “celebutards”like Miley Cyrus…

Slave Pit “GWARtist” Announces Print Line

The man behind the mask of Oderus Urungus, Dave Brockie, today unveiled a new web-store where fans can buy limited-edition, high quality art prints of not only Brockie’s GWAR drawings, but many of his other illustrations. Culled from select images spanning a 30-year career as an artist and illustrator, these highly-collectable prints are now available to the public. Check outwww.theartofdavebrockie.com

brockieprintart

 

“For years I have been doing custom paintings and drawings for people and I have gotten so far behind that I constantly have to turn down people looking to get some of my work. A high-quality print line web store will give everybody a chance to have a Brockie on their wall.” said the artist from GWAR‘s “Slave Pit”, their Richmond studio.

 

Dave Brockie is to many a footnote to the name most people know him by–that of Oderus Urungus, foul-mouthed alien barbarian and longtime lead singer of GWAR, the world’s foremost horror-rock spectacle. GWAR‘s legendary live shows and relentless work-ethic have earned the group of artists and musicians from Richmond, Va. an international reputation as the cutting-edge of outrageous, “Grand Guignol”-style metal theater, and won them legions of fans worldwide. In the course of the groups 25+ year-long career Brockie, as President of Slave Pit Inc., GWAR‘s parent production company, has consistently spearheaded the groups efforts, not only as the bands lead singer and public mouthpiece, but also as an artist involved in many of GWAR‘s graphic projects.

 

Brockie continued on like the blowhard that he is. “I actually graduated art school even though I knew it was no guarantee of employment. Nevertheless I deluded myself that I was going to become a fine artist and was painting these giant squiggly blob paintings that actually looked pretty cool, but were never going to pay the bills. I worked construction and knocked over liquor stores to do that. But I was also into comics and illustration and when GWAR started to happen it gave me a great venue for my work. Suddenly I was being called upon to do flyers, t-shirts, comics…even album covers. That turned into a 25+ year stretch where I was always making art of some kind. It’s about damn time I had my own print line!”

 

The prints are signed and numbered by the artist and are part of a limited edition of 1000 per image. The prints use the highest quality paper and inks, and are mounted on a piece of masonite that features a custom-made 3-D frame that is a throwback to Brockie’s early “squiggle” paintings.

 

“I hope this is a big success,” said Brockie. “I am going on a pilgrimage to Stalingrad this spring and need money for booze and food. Plus I got kicked in the mouth by a circus-mule and need extensive dental-work. “After I get this print site going, I plan to disappear. It is time for GWAR.
In other Slave Pit news GWAR is wrapping up a new album, their 13th, which is the band’s first since the passing of longtime guitarist Cory Smoot in late 2011. Coming out later this year, the album features the debut of Pustulus Maximus, cousin of the mighty departed one, Flattus Maximus. The band has a run of shows scheduled for this April, which are the last stops of the “Fate or Chaos” tour, which chronicles GWAR‘s epic struggle with an angry God. It has been rumored that GWAR will be testing out songs from the new album on these dates.

 

“Yes! We Will!” confirmed Oderus.

 

The band is also venturing into the culinary arts with a signature “GWAR-B-Q” sauce, which they will be debuting at a colossal “Meat & Meet” to be held at the world famous “Grinders” in Kansas City on Monday April 8th from 4-6 PM.

 

August will see the fourth annual GWAR-B-Q, the group’s annual outdoor music and meat-fest which is getting more massive every year. The new album’s release follows soon after, and then the band will embark on a mega-huge world tour that will continue well into 2014. Sounds like business as usual for the hardest working band in show biz.

GWAR Announces Second Leg of “Fate or Chaos” Tour

After spending months deep inside their arctic fortress working on what will be their next album, your Lords and Masters GWAR have announced their return to the road in North America. The second leg of the “Fate or Chaos” tour is scheduled to kick off April 10th in Tucson, AZ and will run through April 25th in Jacksonville, Florida. Support on the tour will come from Warbeast and Wilson. Tickets go on sale this Friday February 15th.
Briefly putting down the crack pipe, lead throat thing Oderus Urungus spoke about going back on tour:

“As you humans amuse yourself with your mundane holidays, it has been a time of intense activity for GWAR, as we record our 13th studio album– the first one with our new Scumdog brother, Pustulus Maximus!”

The Filth-Lord continued– “We begin this years festivities with the second and final leg of our Fate or Chaos tour, so everybody who missed the first leg can see Cyber-Jesus get his fucking ass handed to him. Then it’s back in the studio to work on all the hulking war machines we shall need on our devastating, brand-spanking new tour, after the album drops at the end of the summer! Can you believe I said drop? How fucking stupid!”

Oderus Urungus and Balsac the Jaws of Death, recently took New York by storm when they were in town filming a segment for the SyFy TV Show “Oddities”.

The guys were once again recruited by MTV’s Next Movie to give their critique of another Steven Spielberg directed, Oscar nominated film. The last time they reviewed a movie for Next Movie they reviewed “War Horse” it was only fitting that “Lincoln” be next. Check out Oderus and Balsac’s review HERE.

Oderus and Balsac recently stole the show .as guests on the “Artie Lange Show”. Check out highlights of their appearance HERE:

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.

GWAR to Kick Off “Fate or Chaos” Tour This Friday in Philly- Wrap-up In Pittsburgh in Nov.

Intergalactic space mutants GWAR will kick off their North American tour dubbed the “Fate or Chaos” tour this Friday October 12th in Philadelphia, PA. The tour will run through November 26th wrapping up in Pittsburgh, PA (where PMM will be conducting a video interview about the wrap of the tour). Direct support on the tour will be provided by DevilDriver, with Cancer Bats and Legacy of Disorder rounding out the bill.

GWAR lead throat thing Oderus Urungus spoke about the upcoming tour:

Quoth Oderus, “We are pleased as piss-punch to be back on the road with old buddies DevilDriver and Legacy of Disorder, and very stoked to also have Cancer Bats with us. They are from Canada right? Why do so many cool things come from a place they call America’s Hat? Who is to say that America isn’t Canada’s sweater? No matter! With a nod to departed Scumdog Flattus Maximus, let the games begin with a BRAND NEW SHOW. Let the era of Pustulus Maximus begin!”

It was announced last week that Pustulus Maximus has new joined GWAR as an official Scumdog brother. Little is known about this being, other than that he has a skin condition where his face and feet are covered in painful pustules that can only be soothed by the application of savage metal, spoiled elephant semen or oral sex. Pustulus is also rumored to be half-deaf, which leads him to yell at everyone, which he does often, because he is convinced everyone in the band is ignoring him when actually he just can’t hear what they are saying. It is not known whether he crashed his Scumship into Antarctica or wandered up from the depths of GWAR’s Antarctic fortress – all that is known is that he is here, now, and is ready to ROCK.

Pustulus made his live debut with GWAR performing a rendition of the Kansas classic “Carry on Wayward Son” as part of the AV Club Undercover Series. The video can be viewed HERE.
