After months of paperwork, hoop-jumping, and making the appropriate sacrifices, today Slave Pit is pleased to announce that the GWAR-B-Q is 100% completely legal and confirmed, and set for August 18th at Hadad's Lake. As you may recall, last year's GWAR-B-Q was switched from Hadad's to the National Theater because of problems getting the correct permits.

"All the proper arrangements have been made in triplicate and the proper demonic sponsorships attained," said GWAR spokes-thing Oderus Urungus. "It's going to be a stinking hot, beer and beef-smeared metallic murderfest of unprecedented debauchery...the most splat-tac-cular GWAR-B-Q!"

The following press release was also issued:

"This marks the third consecutive year for the growing festival, and like last year GWAR will headline the event. As Best Friends Day, the hugely popular Richmond music fest, is taking this summer off, the GWAR-B-Q is set to be the hugest heavy music event of the Richmond summer scene. Bands will be spread across two stages and feature such acts as The Casualties, GHOUL, Valient Thorr, Occultist, Lionize, Highness, Antietam 1862, MUTWAWA, and Black Naked Wings. There will also be Spew-O-Lympics, numerous food vendors, endless streams of golden nectar, pools to cool your fevered sun-burn, and much much more, including the return of the Sexecutioner to the GWAR stage for the first time in twelve years. Sexy has completed a lengthy sabbatical beneath the catacombs of Paris with his good friend, Prince Ray Pierre, better known as 'Frenchy,' the demon of France. His return to the rock stage provides the promise of attaining unprecedented levels of naughtiness."

Added Oderus, "I can't tell you how ecstatic I am to once again be engaging in acts of necro-bestial delight with my old buddy, The Sexecutioner. Well actually, I can. I am ecstatic I am to once again be engaging in acts of necro-bestial delight with my old buddy, The Sexecutioner."

Some of the proceeds from the event will go to benefit Richmond's Ring Dog Rescue. More info on the GWAR-B-Q will be released in the coming weeks. GWAR also has the following upcoming tour dates:

6/9: New York, NY @ Irving Plaza (Zombie Prom)
6/15: Providence, RI @ Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel
6/16: Montebello, QC @ Montebello Marina (D-TOX Rockfest)
6/17: London, ON @ London Concert Theater
8/18: Richmond, VA @ Hadad's Lake - GWAR-B-Q
