GWAR Announces Scumdogs 30th Anniversary Tour

  • Axl Rosenberg

GWAR have announced their return to the road this fall, and I just wanna share two excerpts from the press release announcing the trek, because it’s so goddamn GWARish in the best possible way:

“Human Scum, have you received your 5G chip implan-…we mean ‘vaccine’ yet? Now that you’ve gotten your shot in the arm, GWAR will give you a shot in the mouth (of spew) this fall as they return to the road in North America.”

The announcement continues:

“’We’ve been saving it up, and we are ready to explode all over the face of this nation with a dazzling flood of chaotic shock rock load. But don’t even try to come to a show on this tour unless you are unvaccinated, covid positive and willing to submit to an enthusiastic rectal temperature check at the hands of our degenerate road crew,’ says lead throat thing The Berserker Blóthar.

“GWAR’s latest release ‘The Disc With No Name’ EP is completely sold out, so you’re fucked.”

Christ on the cross, how can you not friggin’ love this band???

ANYWAY, it’s hard to think of a band better suited to usher in the return of live music than GWAR, whose stage show is legendary. Sweeting the already-delicious pot is that support will come from Napalm Death and Eyehategod. Rare is the bill that will keep me at the show from the first note is played until security tears the overpriced beer from my hand and tells me to get the fuck out, but this is that bill.

Madball will also be on some dates, but only for the superspreader markets.

Dates are below. GWAR’s The Disc With No Name is still available digitally if you didn’t manage to snag a physical copy.
