Metal Blade Records has announced the re-signing of the mighty GWAR. Pictured below is Metal Blade owner and CEO Brian Slagel and GWAR lead singer Oderus Urungus holding the carefully crafted document that spells DOOM for the human race. Untold legions of slaves are already laboring without pause to prepare the world for the first release in what shall go down in history as the most savage GWAR assault upon the human race to date! Ready the butchers block! "Lust in Space", the new album from GWAR, will be released in August on Metal Blade Records!
Quoth Oderus: "We couldn't be more delighted to be back on Metal Blade. The alliance of metal's most prestigious label and metal's most incredible band shall form an UberKlaw of ten-fold devastation. When GWAR's new album, 'Lust in Space', drops in August, the world shall be forced to its knees in total submission to our confusing dominance! The release marks the 25th anniversary of GWAR's thawing out, and we proclaim a two-year celebration to herald this brain-melting event! Death to life! Up the Irish! GWAR is back on Metal Blade and bitter is their wrath!"
