Oderus is missing. Once the Scumdogs in GWAR finally notice this (it takes them a while to notice stuff) they will set off on a journey to find their departed brother using every resource available – including recruiting an ancient Scumdog warrior. GWAR will need the help from everyone, even the lowliest Bohab, as their enemies are plotting to take advantage of the hole in GWAR‘s ranks.

 

BalSac The Jaws of Death on The “GWAR Eternal Tour 2014″ and what to expect:

 

“Dark clouds of war and ill omen have gathered around GWAR. In our hour of greatest peril, Oderus has left us and our enemies stand poised, ready to strike while they sense weakness. But we shall no longer cower in our Antarctic stronghold, awaiting Destiny’s final blow. This Fall GWAR sets out on the most trying quest of our career. We shall scour our leader’s favorite stomping ground, North America, leaving no city unsearched, no venue unraised, and no sheep unmolested. GWAR will venture to the depths of Hell or to the very end of Time itself, and though I fear what we may encounter out there, I know that we can never return home until we have the answer we seek: ‘Where is Oderus Urungus?’”

 

GWAR fans have been mourning the loss of Dave Brockie, GWAR’s founder and lead singer, since March. The “GWAR Eternal Tour 2014″ gives them an opportunity to gather and share a bunch of feels as a community while experiencing the sickest band in this or any other world.

 

Jamison Land, Beefcake the Mighty’s personal slave and bass tech:

 

“Dave was our friend and anchor for as far back as anyone can remember.  He’s held us together, and sometimes he drove us apart.  He is our brother and we love him. Unlike a lot of prominent musicians, he was friends with all of the fans. He made GWAR fans feel special on a personal level.  The fans love Dave as much as we do and ‘The GWAR Eternal Tour 2014′ is our way of getting together and sharing that love.”

 

The first leg of the tour will include direct support from Decapitated; the second leg will have direct support from Corrosion of Conformity.  American Sharks will open all shows.  The tour kicks off October 15th in Norfolk, VA and runs through December 13th in Baltimore, MD.  A complete list of dates can be found below.  Tickets go on sale this weekend.

 

Hail Oderus! Hail GWAR!

The 5th Annual GWAR B-QGWAR’s saucy, sinful summer celebration-draws ever closer! And good reasons to make the trek to Hadad’s Lake (7900 Osborne Turnpike, Richmond, VA 23231) www.hadadslake.com on Saturday, August 16th keep multiplying.

GWAR! Haunted! House! Those three words should get your heart racing! The GWAR B-Q will feature the Crypt of Chaos, the first-ever GWAR-themed horror experience! Combining Slave Pit’s demented artistry and the pedigree of Tim Bunch’s House of Horrors, this will be a sicker, scarier event than your wildest nightmares can imagine! You will beg for release and emerge a bloody, broken shell of your former self. That is, if you have the guts to enter…

GWAR recently announced that Jello Biafra will preside over the Dave Brockie/Oderus Urungus Memorial (from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday, August 15th). He will share those duties with two other special guests: Randy Blythe of Lamb of God and Holliston TV series creator Adam Green. The event, also taking place at Hadad’s Lake, is FREE to the public. Show up to drink GWAR Beer and unleash a primal scream to pay tribute to Oderus as he journeys to Valhalla and beyond.
