After running a semi-succesful sex-for-votes campaign, GWAR is getting ready to devastate Europe this summer. Your mutant overlords are bringing the "Bloody Tour of Horror" overseas with numerous festival dates including appearances at Sweden Rock, The Download Festival (UK), Copenhell (Denmark), Sonisphere (Switzerland), and Graspop Metal Meeting (Belgium).

In addition to these festival appearances, GWAR will be embarking on a headlining tour across Europe, including two very special co-headlining shows with Clutch. Foul mouthed lead throat thing Oderus Urungus commented on the upcoming European carnage:

"GWAR is happy to return to the land of endless cheese, Black Death, and World War. The bohabs of Europe are amongst the most loyal of our fans, and they are also fat. We will also be bringing along some guest stars very near and dear to the people of Europe--to kick the shit out of!"

Oh. f***. Yes. I can't manage to get to Download due to work, and I live in Edinburgh. Haven't seen GWAR in about 7-8 years (Manchester, I think) so I'll definitely be getting a ticket for the Glasgow gig.
