GWAR Split With Singer Kym DillaThursday, 7th May 2015
GWAR has announced that vocalist Kim Dylla was released from the band directly following the fall 2014 “GWAR Eternal Tour”, and will no longer perform with the group. Dylla played the character of Vulvatron, a buxom Scumdog from the distant future, on the band’s last national tour. The group garnered quite a bit of press when it was erroneously reported that Dylla, in the role of Vulvatron, was the new lead singer for the band.
Brent Purgason, slave of the recently defrosted intergalactic barbarian Pustulus Maximus, had this to say: “Kim did a great job, but we wanted to go a different direction with the Vulvatron character. You will absolutely see more of Vulvatron in the future, just not portrayed by Kim. There is no ill will, no acrimony, and no drama. We respect Kim’s talent without question, it just isn’t what we needed in the character.”
Vulvatron was previously described as “genetically engineered to the optimum proportions for a female of her species.” She was said to have returned from the year 69,000, where she was a high-ranking Scumdog assassin in the battle against futuro-fascist forces. Her primary functions included the mastery of the arts of war, quantum mechanics and intergalactic musicology.
GWAR’s “30 Years of Total Domination Tour” will kick off on late August and will feature support from BUTCHER BABIES and BATTLECROSS.
