Gwar Announce 'Return of the World Maggot' Fall Tour with Every Time I Die

Gwar Announce 'Return of the World Maggot' Fall Tour with Every Time I Die
Though chances are art metal weirdoes Gwar have been hitting the major metropolises at least once a year since the mid-'80s, there's still no shortage of crowds willing to get greased up in all the fake blood and semen the band have to offer. With that in mind, break out your tarps and rain slickers, everybody, Gwar are coming your way again this fall.

A press release for the long-running metal outfit confirms that the band "have awoken from their arctic slumber to once again create utter devastation in North America this fall" as part of their "Return of the World Maggot" tour. Armed with a litany of rubber penises, gory getups and numbskull riffs, the cartoonishly violent band will be bashing their belligerent way across the continent come October, with a few Canadian stops scheduled along the way.

Crushing Southern hardcore experimentalists Every Time I Die will be joining the troupe on all dates. Oakland thrashers Ghoul will open the front end of the tour, while Warbeast wrap up the dates with the headliners. You can check out the schedule below.

Fetid, warty and barely clad Gwar band leader Oderus Urungus had this to say about Gwar's upcoming onslaught of dates:

"Once again we blow the mighty horn of war, and summon the most fanatical fans in metal history to pay homage to their brutal overlords, us. Between holding Crack-a-Thon's, having GWAR-B-Q's, you might think that your Lords and Masters had forgotten about you...but you won't get off that easy! GWAR is returning to personally slap the teeth out of your collective mouths, and have a great time while doing it!"

So, on top of your waterproof gear, maybe wear a mouth guard. That is, unless you'll consider your gaping gum holes to be some sort of gooey badge of honour. Gross.
