GWAR Planning Drive-In Concert, Acoustic EP, Etc.

During a recent interview with Revolver, Blothar The Berserker offered an update on GWAR’s current plans. According to him, the group are planning a drive-in concert, a livestream event, an acoustic EP, and more.

Blothar said the following:

“We’re going to have a lot of stuff going on. I’m not going to get specific dates because then we would actually have to do the work, and we don’t want to do that.

So in the future, vaguely, I can say that, yes, GWAR will be doing a live drive-in performance at some point where people can drive up their cars and watch the band — the greatest band in rock & roll history — perform. We’re also going to do a livestream GWAR event. At some point, we’re working on a new comic book.

We’ve got a bunch of new products coming out. Most of them are intoxicants, exploiting human vices in one way or the other. Our own line of sex toys, which may be released.

We’ve got a lot of stuff going on, let me tell ya. At some point, we’re going to have to record an album, which we hope will be out towards the end of next year. In the meantime, we have an acoustic EP that we’re working on and trying to get that out the door.”

So today I dressed in my home made Oderus Urungus to pick up my A-level school results. I got a B in design technology and a D in art… oh well. All I’d like to say is that you don’t need the highest grades and you don’t need to go to Hollywood to be able to create cool shit. Anyways, this has been a fun project. Let’s try see if we can get an article made about this! Thanks for all the lovely support. Not for sale, will not make any for sale.

GWAR’s Blothar Says Oderus Urungus Wouldn’t Have Wanted His Statue In A “Row Of Losers”

As previously reported, a Change.org petition to replace the Robert E. Lee statue in Richmond, Virginia with a statue of late GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus recently received over 50,000 signatures. However, Blothar The Berserker has since commented on the campaign saying that Oderus wouldn’t have wanted his statue in a “row of losers.”

Blothar told Consequence Of Sound the following:

“I don’t think that Oderus should replace Robert E. Lee on that statue in Richmond. For one thing, he’d be in some really shitty company. It’s just a parade of douchebags.”

He continued:

“Why would Oderus want to be in that row of losers? Even if they pulled them all down, Monument Avenue still has the reputation of being the place where losers [are honored with statues]. What kind of a county allows the losers of a war to erect a bunch of monuments and statues to themselves?”

He also added:

“I think they should just explode the entire damn monument. Make it a big smoldering hole in the ground.”

Blothar went on to say that he would like to see “statues of Oderus everywhere” but not on Monument Avenue.

Petition To Replace Robert E. Lee Statue With Late GWAR Frontman Oderus Urungus Gets Over 50,000 Signatures

Earlier this month, a Change.org petition was launched to replace the Robert E. Lee statue in Richmond, Virginia with a statue of late GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus. Impressively, the campaign has since gone on to receive over 50,000 signatures.

The following message was shared with the petition:

“Robert E. Lee is a failed war general that supported a racist cause. For too long, the city of Richmond has been displaying statues of him and other loser civil war veterans.

We the scumdogs of the universe call on the city of Richmond to erect a statue of great local leader Oderus Urungus in its place. While Oderus comes from the planet Scumdogia, he called Richmond his home, working with the local art community and employing local artists and ladies of the night.
