GWAR and HATEBREED will join forces for the "Gore, Core, Metal And More" co-headlining tour this fall. Support will come from MISS MAY I, RINGWORM and AMERICAN SHARKS. These shows begin October 17 in Buffalo, New York and run through October 28 in Peoria, Iowa.
On October 29, GWAR will then kick off a headline run, that sees them stopping in New York City on Halloween and continuing their aural (not oral) devastation of the nation through November 10.
"This is the tour you can't afford to miss," says GWAR guitarist Pustulus Maximus. "We are bringing you the heaviest in hardcore and the most brutal of gore! We are thrilled to be slaying the nation alongside our brothers in HATEBREED."
"Humans, come, witness the eviscerating, ear splitting majesty and power of GWAR and HATEBREED! Yes, demonstrate your ceaseless dedication to heavy fucking metal in the Pit of Death. There is a very good chance you won't survive!" adds vocalist The Berserker Blothar.
"Autumn is a lovely time of year to team up with GWAR and crush every city in our path. There will be moshpits, blood, carnage, and chaos," says HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta.
A special BLABBERMOUTH.NET presale will begin on Wednesday, July 18 at 10:00 a.m. local time and end on Thursday, July 19 at 10 p.m. local time. When prompted, type in the presale code "GHBBM" to access tickets before the general public.

GWAR's latest album, "The Blood Of Gods", was released last October via Metal Blade. The disc was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Ronan Chris "Lord God" Murphy and was made available in standard CD, 2LP colored vinyl and digital formats.
"The Blood of Gods" is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of their great mistake, from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming. Humans are shown as what they are; a parasitic disease that must be eradicated before they suck the planet dry.
