GWAR Destroying The Literary World

"Let There Be GWAR" is a comprehensive behind-the-scenes history of the most outrageous shock rock band of all time. The book follows the band from the mid-1980s, known in GWAR lore as the "Dim Time" when the group came together at a derelict dairy building in Richmond, Virginia, through the 1990s and 2000s, when the band spread across the face of the planet like a plague.

This book is a record and testament to all that is GWAR: a GWAR show is more than a rock concert; it is an immersive experience, featuring hilarious storylines, absurd live gore effects, and hundreds of gallons of blood and other fluids sprayed on an eager audience. "Let There Be GWAR" takes you backstage at these performances, a tour of the GWAR kingdom in photos, band posters, ephemera, production sketches and interviews, that chronicle the band's albums, comics and videos in a blood-stained hardbound tome.

Compiled by Bob Gorman and Roger Gastman, the hardcover book is over 350 pages, with a lenticular cover, and features 30 years of GWAR and Slave-Pit Inc, the production company behind the band. You can pre-order yours over here. More...
