Gwar has returned to North America to begin the final preparations for a host of promo events and concert appearances in their continuing two-year long 25th Anniversary. After a lightening-quick four-month break spent in the band's hulking south-pole fortress ("fighting penguins..." claimed Gwar front-thing Oderus Urungus, "and working on a new album..."), the band reportedly made landfall late Wednesday evening, arriving in their signature bat-shaped helicopter at an undisclosed location.

In order to publicize their pressing agenda (and display the pressing of genitals), the band announced that on Friday, May 28th, at 10:00 p.m. E.S.T. Oderus Urungus will hold a web-based press conference, which can be viewed at this location, where he is expected to mouth-off about the insignificance of humanity and make a long and complicated set of demands. Viewers will be able to ask Oderus questions through the chat room, and he might even answer some of them.

In other news, Gwar is set to hit the road for the second leg of their "Lust in Space" tour, including stops at the Skatopia and Bonnaroo festivals. Bonarroo will also have a special Gwar autograph session at the official signing location, where loyal fans can get their favorite Gwar stuff signed, or even have their names carved into their foreheads. "It's a little thing we intend to do to, I mean for, our fans..." explained Gwar guitarist Balsac, the Jaws of Death, "So when they take all those drugs at Bonnaroo they won't forget who they are."
