Nich Madl of Metal Riot conducted an interview with GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus in December 2013 in New York City. You can now watch the chat below.
GWAR will bring the most insane spectacle in rock 'n roll all the way from Antarctica to the Land Of The Rising Sun. After 28 years of relentless touring, recording and general mayhem, GWAR is finally playing Japan!
"A lot of people think we have played there already because of our album, Live at Mt. Fuji," said Oderus Urungus. "But that was in fact recorded in the future!"
After playing the gigantic Soundwave Festival in Australia, GWAR will travel north to play two exclusive shows in Japan, where legions of GWAR fans have been waiting patiently for years for their chance to die in the presence of their hulking metal overlords. Their wishes shall at last come true on Thursday, March 6 at Club Quattro in Osaka, Japan, and Friday, March 7 at Akasaka Blitz in Tokyo.
Tickets for the shows will be available during the Creative Man pre-sale January 13-17. There will also be a presale opportunity on Japan's most important metal radio program "Power Rock Today" hosted by Masa Ito on January 18. The local Ticketmaster presale will run January 19-24 and the general public on sale begins January 25.
GWAR will bring its full show, featuring all the carnage, spew, and metallic mayhem that has enslaved legions of fans in North America and beyond. This, of course, means spontaneous beheadings and disembowelments shall be the order of the day, and a bloody attack by mutant cyborg Sawborg Destructo is sure to occur. "But the biggest reason we are going there is to reward all of those loyal and patient Japanese GWAR fans with what they have been yearning for in their blackest of dreams... an actual GWAR show," proclaims Oderus Urungus.
