GWAR: More 20th Anniversary Tour Dates Announced

Mutant metal-masters GWAR are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their rebirth on Earth with a triumphant tour of their most depraved stomping grounds. Beginning October 7 and lasting until everything is dead, North America shall reel under the savage assault of GWAR, the most dangerous band in this or any other universe. Fresh from their glorious participation in the ultra-sick Sounds of the Underground tour, everybody's favorite Antarctican war-gods will crush the cities of man one by one until the people of Earth are reduced to quivering piles of molten flesh.

"There have been abundant rumors of a hideous summoning, and the great beast T-Rex GOR GOR stirs in his subterranean lair," said spokesman and lead throat-thing Oderus Urungus. "We will harness our gore-flecked war machines as GWAR returns with a devastating 20th anniversary tour, damning all humankind to an eternal doom of pus-drenched necro-bestial nasal violation!"

Since 1985 GWAR has unleashed over ten albums and countless video's in their long and tarnished history on Earth, and have even been nominated for two completely meaningless Grammy awards. In 2004 and 2005 the band released of some of their most successful efforts to date, the much-lauded "War Party", and their first-ever live album, "Live From Mt. Fuji", respectively. The band also terrorized the masses in a special guest slot on this summer's Sounds of the Underground tour, gaining legions of new fans. In 20 unmatched years of metallic majesty, GWAR has set the standard for all things that are loud, smelly, and generally obnoxious, and shall continue their reign of supreme dominance of Earth until the planet is reduced to a seething mudball!
