As previously reported, GWAR filmed a music video for the song "Eight Lock" on November 27, 2006 before their show at the New Orleans House of Blues. The clip was shot in its entirety at the House of Shock haunted house in New Orleans and features the band roaming through the House of Shock as if it were Hell and encountering some of its inhabitants along the way. Cast members of the House of Shock also make appearances in the clip.

GWAR's new album, "Beyond Hell", was released on August 29 via DRT Entertainment. The band's video for the ALICE COOPER classic "School's Out" can be viewed at this location.

"Beyond Hell", produced by Devin Townsend (LAMB OF GOD, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) is said to be GWAR's "most crushing release yet." An e-card has been made available where fans can stream four tracks off the album. A deluxe limited edition of the album includes expanded artwork, a poster and a DVD which compiles all of the SlavePit TV episodes along with additional behind-the-scenes footage on the creation of the new costumes, as well as hilarious footage of GWAR in the studio with producer Devin Townsend.
