Antarctic rock-gods Gwar have finally announced the ticket info for this year's GWAR-B-Q, located at Hadad's Water Park in Richmond, VA. 2013 sees the event entering its fourth consecutive year while offering its most bone-crushing line-up yet, setting the stage for what will certainly be the most massive GWAR-B-Q in the history of the human or any other race!

There will be three levels of tickets sold and all tickets will be available only on the GWAR-B-Q website here. Tickets go on sale June 6th, and info is as follows:

Standard $30 Ticket - All day entry
Deluxe $40 Ticket - All day entry and official GWAR-B-Q t-shirt
Premium $100 Ticket (Limited Quantity 150)- All day entry, official GWAR-B-Q t-shirt and VIP Pass for Meet & Greet signing with GWAR and possible chance to appear on stage with GWAR.

Today GWAR continues in the tradition of reuniting classic bands to play at the GWAR-B-Q, with the addition of the X-Cops! That's right, the original lineup featuring Lt. Louie Scrapinetti (Mike Derks), Cadet Billy Club (Mike Dunn), Patrolman Cobb Knobbler (Dave Brockie), Sgt. Al Depantsia (Pete Lee), Sherriff Tubb Tucker (Casey Orr), Mountain Bike Officer Biff Buff (Brad Roberts), Sgt. Zypygski (Bob Gorman), and Detective Philip McRevis (Dave Musel) are reuniting for one night only at this year's GWAR-B-Q. This will serve as the band's first show since 1996.

X-Cops's bass "man" Cobb Knobbler commented on the reunion of the band: "I am excited to get the boys together for one last gig, especially since I have become a member of the Westboro Baptist Church."

Sherriff Tubb Tucker, Motherfucker of All Motherfuckers, added: "Alright you lowlife dirtbags, listen up! X-Cops have been hired on as crowd control for the 4th annual GWAR-B-Q. I'm here to tell all of you faggot punks that we will be in full force to put the beat down on any of you little shits that step out of line! That's right! After years of deep cover, the original X-Cops team has been reassembled to make sure there's no bullshit at this fine event. We will be on hand to confiscate all your drugs, accept donations to our policeman's balls, and thoroughly pat down your girlfriends. So bring drugs, money, and women! As you were."

Three more bands have been added to the GWAR-B-Q lineup. Fresh off a tour with GWAR, Wilson and Warbeast will be making their first GWAR-B-Q appearances. Metal Blade Records artist Battlecross has been confirmed as well. Rumor has it that there are still huge special guests to be announced.

Already confirmed for the GWAR-B-Q: local favorites and international thrashers Municipal Waste will provide main support to the mighty GWAR, and in turn will be supported by a plethora of devastating acts like Corrosion of Conformity, Pig Destroyer, Cannabis Corpse, Loincloth, Kung-Fu Dykes and many more.

The event is scheduled to take place Saturday August 17th, 2013 at Hadad's Water Park in Richmond, VA, located at 7900 Osbourne Turnpike.
