GWAR: Oderus Urungus Posts Public Service AnnouncementSaturday, 31st August 2013
GWAR recently went back to their hometown of Virginia with a larger than life G Pen to host the GWARBQ, the ultimate BBQ for metal addicts, where lead singer Oderus Urungus made a “special announcement,” which can be viewed below.
GWAR are set to return to the realms of man and reclaim their vice-like grip on the throat of hard-rock humanity after spending the last year-and-a-half working on their follow-up to 2011’s Bloody Pit Of Horror. The new recording, Battle Maximus, is GWAR’s first full-length studio effort since the loss of their longtime guitar player, Flattus Maximus, and is set to hit the streets on September 17th on Metal Blade Records.
“This album is both a tribute to Flattus and a telling of the next chapter in the story of GWAR,” said Urungus. “The combo of the brand new album and show should satisfy even the most hardcore Flattus devotee with the fact that GWAR’s slay-skills are as supreme as ever, and the band stands poised to embark on our most earth-shattering world tour yet. We have mourned, we have honored, and now it’s time to fucking devastate in the name of Flattus and the supreme entity that is GWAR.”
