GWAR Announces Fall 2017 North American Tour

GWAR Announces Fall 2017 North American Tour

On October 20, GWAR will release a new studio album titled "The Blood Of Gods" via Metal Blade Records. In support of the disc, your Lords and Masters will leave their arctic slumber and return to the road to cause aural (and anal) devastation across North America. Joining in the chaos will be GHOUL, DOYLE (October 20 - November 5), HE IS LEGEND (November 7 – December 10) and U.S. BASTARDS. The tour kicks off in Richmond, Virginia on October 20 and runs through December 10 in Detroit, Michigan.

The Berserker Blothar had this to say about the upcoming tour: "Humans, we are coming to tear your world apart with a live performance the likes of which has never been seen on this or any other planet! This album, 'The Blood Of Gods', is the greatest thing since French toast. Just hearing these songs performed will result in an instant paroxysm of weeping, gnashing of teeth, and the uncontrollable voiding of your filthy bowels. Now, we are taking the whole bloody shit show on the road, with the most spectacular, blood-drenched, gruesome, and terrifying rock concert of all time. Don't miss your chance to sacrifice yourself to GWAR at a venue near you!"

"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. Meanwhile, Sleazy P. Martini, the crooked entrepreneur who discovered the Scumdogs, and has always envisioned them as a sort of horrific boy band, finally managed to convince the group to write a hit song called "I'll Be Your Monster". If all goes according to plan, it may be just stupid enough to work!
