GWAR Heading Out On North American Tour Dates

Intergalactic space mutants GWAR will kick off their North American tour dubbed the "Fate or Chaos" tour this Friday October 12th in Philadelphia, PA. The tour will run through November 26th wrapping up in Pittsburgh, PA. Direct support on the tour will be provided by DevilDriver, with Cancer Bats and Legacy of Disorder rounding out the bill.

GWAR lead throat thing Oderus Urungus spoke about the upcoming tour: "We are pleased as piss-punch to be back on the road with old buddies DevilDriver and Legacy of Disorder, and very stoked to also have Cancer Bats with us. They are from Canada right? Why do so many cool things come from a place they call America's Hat? Who is to say that America isn't Canada's sweater? No matter! With a nod to departed Scumdog Flattus Maximus, let the games begin with a BRAND NEW SHOW. Let the era of Pustulus Maximus begin!"

It was announced last week that Pustulus Maximus has now joined GWAR as an official Scumdog brother. Little is known about this being, other than that he has a skin condition where his face and feet are covered in painful pustules that can only be soothed by the application of savage metal, spoiled elephant semen, or oral sex. Pustulus is also rumored to be half-deaf, which leads him to yell at everyone, which he does often, because he is convinced everyone in the band is ignoring him when actually he just can't hear what they are saying. It is not known whether he crashed his Scumship into Antarctica or wandered up from the depths of GWAR's Antarctic fortress - all that is known is that he is here, now, and is ready to ROCK.

big fail on missing kreator...if they came anywhere near florida my a$$ would be driving there come hell or high water...i hope i have enough money together for the LOG and Hatebreed show and I hope the wife will let me go since the show is on a monday....This is why you frustrate and confuse me...you can be a perfect gentleman most of the time and then go off on the craziest tinfoil rants for no good reason until R10 and Hellrat get things settled down...you think you might make it to Maryland Death Fest to see Venom in the spring? Thats the big show of 2013 that i'm really looking forward too...If you make it i'll buy you a beer.

that sucks for you...i love vinnie paul and everything but hatebreed is soooo much better than hellyeah will ever be...damageplan was cool, i love down and superjoint ritual but hellyeah is one of the lamest bands founded by ex-pantera members. I hope you get to see the Gwar/DD show too...i'm pretty excited, probably haven't seen gwar in 5 years
