Not ones to rest on their laurels and fresh off the announcement of the 2015 GWAR B-Q, the intergalactic overlords GWAR have confirmed they will be taking part in the annual Record Store Day Festivities on Saturday April 18th.
“I used to like Chinese food, now I don’t give a fuck”, said guitarist Pustulus Maximus when asked about Record Store Day.
Just how exactly do they plan on doing this? First, Metal Blade Records will releasing an exclusive Record Store Day double LP edition of GWAR’s third opus America Must Be Destroyed. Previously only available on import vinyl from the UK, this exclusive version which has been meticulously recreated by the slaves of GWAR, features the original color insert with lyrics, an official (looking) certificate of authenticity and a killer ‘pop up’ of GWAR’s pet dinosaur Gor Gor! Additionally, it is confirmed that on April 21st the Grammy nominated classic Phallus in Wonderland will be reissued on DVD in a convenient CD sized package.
But that’s not enough for GWAR. They have planned a special Record Store Day appearance as well. This once in a lifetime opportunity takes place at Asylum Records April 18th from 12:00 – 3:00pm located at 108 W Main St in Mesa, Arizona. On this day you will be able to worship at the feet of the almighty GWAR, get your albums signed and if they deem you worthy, maybe even get a picture with them. There will be special giveaways and raffles including a one of a kind airbrushed guitar signed by the band!
Of course, GWAR could not make it to Arizona without the help of their personal slaves. So in order to get the slaves to agree to help, GWAR has agreed to let the slaves appear as “RAWG” and play a special show that evening at the Nile Theater across the street from Asylum in Mesa, AZ. The doors open at 5:30 PM and you can grab tickets HERE.
