GWAR Rigs The Election

GWAR has once again returned to The AV Club to take part in the Undercover Series. This marks GWAR's record-breaking 5th appearance at The AV Club, where for (four) years running your lords and masters won the title of "best cover of the year."

On this particular visit, GWAR gets started with a little bit of "Foreplay" from Boston, before getting political with a take on AC/DC's "If You Want Blood."

Since today is election day, and we are all tired of hearing about it, your lords and masters invited Trump and Clinton to duke it out in person, and we are sure the long suffering American public will be pleased with the outcome!

Following this triumph, GWAR will return to the band's Antarctic Fortress for the winter and work on a new album featuring the Berserker Blothar. More details will be made available soon. Stay tuned Human Scum!

One more thing, don't fret Bohabs! GWAR would not leave you without something special for Record Store Day this year, releasing a limited edition picture disc called "Black Friday" featuring covers of Billy Ocean's "Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car" and "West End Girls" from The Pet Shop Boys. This was Dave Brockie AKA Oderus Urungus' final recording with GWAR. More...

It has also been confirmed that Sleazy P. Martini will be accompanying the band on all of these dates, who had the following to say:

"As manager of GWAR and America's benevolent deep state dictator Sleazy P. Martini. I want to encourage as many Americans as possible to shun the false left-right dichotomy that is politics and make their voices heard by coming out to see GWAR defend their belts on tour this year. And while your vote will have no effect on the Presidential election this year you can take pleasure in watching Trump and Clinton fight to the death. So come out and support democracy by watching GWAR take on all comers in a political death match knowing that at least it's not rigged... this time." More...

GWAR Posts New Q & A Video

The scum dogs of the universe are working on a new album and have decided to announce it in properly bizarre fashion with a new episode of Pusty's Mailbag. The band comments:

"Day after day we are bludgeoned with an onslaught of lame questions and it's time we answered the most important one... Yes, GWAR has united itself to record yet another disasterpiece and it has been secretly in the writing phase for months in a crackhouse of seclusion in the northside of Chicago. A due date for the record has not been decided but the band is grinding out what may prove to be their most savage and bloodthirsty tracks to date.

"The Scumdogs are also currently searching for a producer that is brave enough to risk their life to give them the tones of the gods to make this next record stand as a testament to the next era of GWAR.

"We had found out about this information while watching the premier episode of Pusty's Mailbag where, apparently, he's taking time out of his day to host a show where the festering giant reads your letters. Watch the clip below as it may contain clues to the future endeavors of GWAR, including this year's highly anticipated GWAR B-Q, set for August 20, 2016 in Richmond, VA." More...
