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.

JUST LAUNCHED on Kickstarter – GWAR: ORGASMAGEDDON, a blasphemous and blood-drenched 4-issue full-color comic book series by shock rock legends GWAR, writer Matt Miner (Toe Tag Riot, Critical Hit), artist Jonathan Brandon Sawyer (Welcome Back, Critical Hit), colorist Marissa Louise (RoboCop, Escape from New York), letterer Taylor Esposito (Batman Eternal, Red Hood and the Outlaws) and editor Brendan Wright (Archie vs. Predator, Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight).

The Kickstarter can be found at GWARKICKSTARTER.COM and it ends in 31 Days.

Having already violated the art, music, and film worlds, now infamous scumdogs GWAR are coming for your comic books!  Do you need to be a GWAR fan to love this series?  Hell no!  There’s loads of laughs, violence, fun, and irreverent social satire for everyone to enjoy!

Trampling through the past after being trapped in time by the cold and calculating Mr. Perfect, GWAR fights and kills and kills and KILLS, slogging their way through human history in a torrent of gore, blood, bile, and other assorted bodily fluids the way only the most famous satirical heavy metal band from the depths of outer space can.

“I’ve been a fan of GWAR more than half my life,” said writer Matt Miner.  “They’ve been one of my very favorite things since someone loaned 16-year-old me a cassette tape of SCUMDOGS OF THE UNIVERSE and my mind was warped for the better.  This is the coolest thing I’ve ever done aside from punking the Westboro Baptist Church, making them proclaim that my comics will ‘Split Hell wide open.’”

In addition to the main story, every issue contains extras – shorts featuring X-COPS (GWAR’s cult-favorite 1990s side project, lampooning corrupt police) and the follies of SAWBORG DESTRUCTO, GWAR’s fearsome but mostly incompetent nemesis from Planet Scumdogia.  Each issue will also feature art and story contributions from GWAR members themselves, starting with pieces by BOB GORMAN (Bonesnapper the Cave Troll) and MATT MAGUIRE (Sawborg Destructo).

To entice pledges on the Kickstarter, the team has come up with a treasure trove of goodies to reward loyal backers.  Items range from comics and exclusive Kickstarter covers to limited edition T-shirts, original painted art on drum heads from GWAR themselves, painted baby GOR-GOR character dinosaurs, honest to God STAGE-USED GWAR PROPS, and tons of autographed merchandise, such as posters signed by the entire band, including the late, great Dave Brockie, who graced our puny human lives and made the world a much more fun place as the band’s ODERUS URUNGUS.

Again, the Kickstarter can be found at GWARKICKSTARTER.COM and it ends in 31 Days.  So contribute now!
