GWAR just kicked off the first phase of the tour of their two-year long 25th Anniversary Celebration. They are touring in support of their brand new album, "LUST IN SPACE," out now on Metal Blade Records.

GWAR recently wrapped up filming for their first music video off the of the “LUST IN SPACE” album for the lead single “LET US SLAY,” which you can view below.

Frontman ODERUS URUNGUS comments: "'LET US SLAY' is the first video from our new epic album, ‘LUST IN SPACE’, and provides actual first-hand footage of GWAR's recent travels through outer space and our cosmic struggle against that intergalactic asshole Cardinal Syn...this should put an end to any speculation that we are not really from outer space...you can really see us flying around on spaceships and shit!"

"This is just the latest GWAR video from esteemed director David Brodsky, whom we have worked w/ before on the amazing ‘SCHOOL’S OUT’ video. He is a very talented and effusively garrulous sort of guy, and he works for rocks! Plus I am particularly excited about the many dance moves that I executed in the course of the video...I recently studied under Christopher Walken, and after working very hard he gave me the nickname 'Twinkletoes!'"
