GWAR announces upcoming North American “Fate or Chaos” tour

Posted by Fireball13 on Wednesday, July 25, 2012 at 8:38 AM (PST)

Metal Blade Records‘ thrashers GWAR have announced their upcoming North American “Fate or Chaos 2012″ tour. The band will be wreaking havoc across America with support coming from DevilDriver, Cancer Bats and Legacy Of Disorder.

The tour is currently scheduled to kick off October 12th in Philadelphia, PA and runs through November 26th in Milvale, PA. More dates are expected to be added in the coming weeks.

When asked for a comment on the upcoming tour, GWAR’s Oderus Urungus muttered a few incoherent statements before saying, “Once again GWAR returns, hoof and nail, to our old stomping grounds, North America, on a tour of utter destruction, and this time nothing less than the greatest power in the universe will do as our primary victim! That’s right, this time GWAR, fresh from our battle with Death, takes on another of history’s biggest assholes…God himself! Seeing as we don’t have the new album done yet, we really had to do something spectacular…”

Oderus belched out a midget and continued. “This tour will also see the arrival of a new Scumdog brother to aid GWAR in our quest to destroy everything that sucks. That’s right, I can finally reveal certain details regarding our new album…ever since our missing band mate Flattus Maximus took his leave of Earth, members of the Maximus tribe have been showing up at our Antarctic fortress, not only to pay their respects but also eat all of our food. And also lay tracks on the new album! You see, every member of the Maximus family rips on guitar (though Flattus taught them all they know), and they were anxious to help us fill the void left by Flattus. We have been working with his brothers Pustulus, Infecticus, Bubonus and even the shunned Corpulus…and right now they are fighting it out as to which one of them will stay here with the mighty GWAR for the “FATE OR CHAOS” Tour…and beyond! Get ready world, this fall shall see the birth of a new Scumdog!”
