GWAR are due to wrap up their Psychotherapy Sessions tour at the end of this month, but they're not quite done with the road yet; the band have just announced a run of North American tour dates, which includes a lone Canadian performance.

"Attention People of Earth! Halloween is coming, and your world is up in flames," GWAR's Berserker Blothar wrote in an announcement. "You're a bunch of hairless apes with the smoothest of all brains. We see you there, groping in the chaos of maddening darkness. GWAR is coming to end your suffering, to bring a close to the Age of Imbeciles."

The October trek will bring the band across the East Coast and Midwest in the US through to Halloween, which is when they'll board Lamb of God's Headbangers Boat cruise. Somewhere between Hampton Beach, NH, and the high seas, GWAR have also plotted a show at Toronto's Phoenix Concert Theatre.

The tour will see support from Negative Approach, X-Cops and Cancer Christ on select dates. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, August 18, at 10 a.m. local time. Check the schedule below.

With the tour dates, the band have also announced the release of the remixed and remastered 10th anniversary edition of Battle Maximus, out September 1 via Pit Records. It features the final recorded vocal performance of the late Oderus Urungus on the previously unreleased track "Tammy, Queen of Dirt." Pre-order that here.
