Fresh off their amazing appearance on the “Howard Stern Wrap Up Show” where they performed the Electric Comicbook (Howard Stern’s Middle School Band) classic “Silver Nickels, Golden Dimes”, GWAR has once again returned to The AV Club to take part in their “Undercover Series”.

This marks GWAR’s record-breaking 5th appearance at The AV Club, where for (four) years running they won the title of best cover of the year.  This of course was accomplished with their covers of Kansas, Billy Ocean, Pet Shop Boys and Cyndi Lauper classics. This year the Intergalactic Overlords plan on taking the championship for the fifth time!

On this particular visit, GWAR gets started with a little bit of “Foreplay” from Boston, before getting political with their take on AC/DC’s “If You Want Blood.” And since today is Election Day, and we are all tired of hearing about it, your Lords and Masters invited Trump and Clinton to duke it out in person, and we are sure the long suffering American public will be pleased with the outcome!  Watch GWAR lay waste to the AV Club yet again HERE!

Following this triumph, GWAR will return to their Antarctic Fortress for the winter as they work on their new album and first release featuring the Berserker Blothar.  More details will be made available soon.  Stay tuned Human Scum!

One more thing, don’t fret Bohabs!  GWAR would not leave you without something special for Record Store Day this year.  That’s right, on Record Store Day (11/25/17) AKA Black Friday, GWAR will release a limited edition picture disc called “Black Friday” featuring their covers of Billy Ocean’s “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” and “West End Girls” from The Pet Shop Boys.  “Get outta My Dream’s Get Into My Car” will be on Side A (Oderus).  This was Dave Brockie AKA Oderus Urungus’ final recording with GWAR.  Side B (Blothar) “West End Girls” was the first recording by GWAR featuring new singer Blothar.

Hail GWAR

ON TOUR NOW!

As your Lords and Masters GWAR have just hit the road for their annual Halloween tour dates, they have a huge announcement to make.  For the first time ever, the Scumdogs of The Universe will invade The Howard Stern Compound to make their live debut on The Howard Stern Wrap Up Show this coming Monday October 31st.   The band is set to perform two songs including a GWAR favorite and a special surprise that Stern Show fans will immediately recognize. The show is hosted by Gary Dell’Abate and Jon Hein and airs at 11:00 AM EST with repeats throughout the day on the Howard Stern Channels on SiriusXM, Howard 100 and Howard 101.  It may have taken close to thirty-five years, but GWAR has finally made it to Howard Stern!

“We are very excited that Howard and his crew have decided to bring their already low moral standards down a notch to have GWAR as a guest on The Wrap Up Show”, said guitarist Pustulus Maximus.

GWAR will stop tonight in Norfolk, VA and steamroll through the Northeast capping everything off with their Halloween performance on Monday October 31st in New Haven, CT.  Darkest Hour and Mutoid Man will provide support on the tour dates.

In addition, members of GWAR have announced two special book signing appearances for Let There Be GWAR, their career-spanning memoir.  Let There Be GWAR is a comprehensive behind-the-scenes history of the most outrageous shock rock band of all time. GWAR fans will cherish this oversized hardcover book chock full of fascinating first-hand accounts and rare, never-before-seen photographs.

The first signing is on October 29th in Brooklyn, New York at Rough Trade and takes place from 2pm-4pm and will feature appearances by the one and only JiZMak da Gusha, manager Sleazy P Martini, Sawborg Destructo and longtime GWAR member and book author Bob Gorman.

The second signing is on November 19th at Atomic Books in Baltimore, MD and takes place from 7pm-9pm and will feature appearances by the one and only JiZMak da Gusha, Blothar the Berserker, Beefcake The Mighty and longtime GWAR member and book author Bob Gorman.
