GWAR Are Gonna Release an Acoustic EP
BOHABS, REJOICE! For the mighty GWAR have announced that they’ll release a new EP, The Disc With No Name, as a limited edition 12″ picture disc on May 28 via Pit Records. May 28th will see the release of “The Disc With No Name,” via Pit Records.
The artwork for said picture disc is characteristically family-friendly:
The Disc With No Name “features unplugged versions of four GWAR classics, completely reimagined and rearranged with acoustic instruments,” according to a press release:
“The idea to release the EP came during last year’s quarantine following the band’s heart wrenching, emotional and ridiculous acoustic performance for The A.V. Club during their quarantine sessions. With this release, the band looks back wistfully on eons of murderous rock and roll and the lonesome time of the great GWARANTINE of 2020.”
Lead singer Blóthar the Berserker says of the EP:
“During the quarantine of 2020 I spent long, lonely days with my hand down my pants, hiding out in a fortress made entirely of rolls of toilet paper, drinking hand sanitizer and watching ‘1000-Lb Sisters’… which is business as usual for me. So I was relieved when I got the call to lay down some vocals on The Disc With No Name. We recorded this record over the telephone, which was fine with me, because I can’t stand to be in the same room as the other members of GWAR.”
You can listen to the acoustic version of “Fuck This Place” below. If not for the lyrics, it actually would sound quite emotional.
The Disc With No Name is available for purchase at GWAR.net and indie retailers.
In related news, hockey-loving GWAR fans will be please to learn that the band has also collaborated with Puck Hcky on an exclusive line of hockey jerseys. You can buys those here.
