Gwar Book Canadian Dates on North American Fall Tour

Gwar Book Canadian Dates on North American Fall Tour
The fake blood industry is about to experience another boom, since theatrical metal monsters Gwar just announced an extensive North American fall tour.

These dates are in support of the band's new album, Battle Maximus, which comes out on September 17 via Metal Blade Records. Before that, the band will spend the summer playing shows and festivals (including Montreal's Heavy MTL) and then join up with Hatebreed for a short co-headlining run.

The so-called "Madness at the Core of Time" tour will begin in early October. It runs until the second half of November, during which they will play a heap of U.S. gigs and Canadian shows in Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto. During this trek, the band will be joined on the road by Whitechapel, Iron Reagan and Band of Orcs.
