GWAR Endorses Super Bowl Petition, Announces Run Of Holiday Dates.
"Madness at the Core of Time" Tour Kicks off
"It has long been the joy of GWAR to submit the human race to any number of hideous tortures, and I can't think of anything more horrible than you having to watch acts like The Black-Eyed Peas and Bruno Mars perform. So the temptation to ignore this is great! But then you start thinking about all of the people that who have never experienced GWAR before, and will be forced to do so if we do get the gig, well, at that point my colossal mega-ego kicks in and I am all over it."
After a long and wet fart, Oderus continued…"I really don't think we should be limited to playing the halftime show…I am offering GWAR as an actual team that could complete in the NFL. Think of the titanic struggle involved as the NFL submits their best players, hell, we could play against all the teams at once and still emerge victorious. For too long has the NFL ignored the obvious fact that the players should be naked, blind-folded and armed with battle axes, that land mines should litter the field and whalers should hurl harpoons randomly from the stands.GWAR is throwing our entire cosmic weight (and we are fairly hefty) behind this petition, and command all of our followers, their families, and indeed anybody who has ever existed to sign this fucking thing, and in fact for those who have already signed it to create multiple fake email addresses and sign it again!"
And now to top it all off, today GWAR is ready to bring everyone a little holiday cheer with a select number of shows this December. That's right it's Christmas Time with Santa Oderus. These three shows are set forin New York at Irving Plaza, in New Haven, CT at Toad's Place and finally a show in Richmond, VA on at The National. Tickets for all three shows go on sale .
In support of Battle Maximus,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 Whitechapel, Richmond, VA thrashers Iron Reagan (featuring Municipal Waste singer Tony Foresta) and A Band of Orcs (who are actually a band of Orcs).in Columbus, Ohio and runs through in Washington, DC. GWAR shall be joined by deathcore heavyweights and label-mates
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.
The title track from Battle Maximus is streaming HERE.
