GWAR To Release Acoustic EP “The Disc With No Name”

GWAR will be releasing a new acoustic EP titled “The Disc With No Name” on May 28. The effort will feature acoustic versions of “Fuck This Place,” “Gonna Kill You,” “I’ll Be Your Monster,” and “The Road Behind.” You can stream “Fuck This Place” below. Blóthar The Berserker commented:

“During the quarantine of 2020 I spent long, lonely days with my hand down my pants, hiding out in a fortress made entirely of rolls of toilet paper, drinking hand sanitizer and watching ‘1000-Lb Sisters’… which is business as usual for me. So I was relieved when I got the call to lay down some vocals on ‘The Disc With No Name.’ We recorded this record over the telephone, which was fine with me, because I can’t stand to be in the same room as the other members of GWAR.”

GWAR Team Up With Puck Hcky For New Merch Collection

GWAR have teamed up with hockey-themed brand Puck Hcky for a new merch collection. You can see what they have to offer HERE. Matt Marini, CEO of Puck Hcky, commented:

“Are you kidding? How insane is it that we have had requests from all over the planet to hook up with GWAR on some hockey jerseys? How could we say no? Well, we couldn’t… we were given no choice! We love it that both humans and non-humans have asked us for these!”

GWAR’s Berserker Blothar added:

“Drop the gloves and get ready to see blood on the ice! Wear your GWAR hockey jersey with pride and show support for Antarctica’s home team, the mighty GWAR!”

GWAR To Launch “Bud Of Gods” CBD Line

GWAR have joined forces with Consequence to create a limited edition CBD line, which they are calling “Bud Of Gods.” Pre-orders are available HERE.

Here’s a description of the CBD:

“After a day of enduring the hustle and bustle of the human condition, lift off to outer space with Gwar’s Bud of Gods premium small batch CBD hemp flower. Inspired by your favorite interplanetary warriors, these dense green-violet buds with bright orange hairs offer a comforting sense of clarity to bring inner peace to your inner Scumdog.”

“Each glass jar contains 3.5 grams of this limited-edition, small batch descendent of the Sour Tsunami flower, a heritage that makes it a Indica-favoring hybrid with a taste of lovely tropical citrus and earthy undertones.”

Blóthar The Berserker commented:

“GWAR has been tearing the universe a new one for literally eons. It’s not easy being an intergalactic warrior shaman, and the leader of the most insane shock rock band in history. I’ve found that after a long day of bloodthirsty battle, nothing soothes my mind like the Bud of Gods CBD. It is the perfect sacrament with which to wind down from a white-hot berserker rage. Grab some today, and feel your petty human concerns melt away into the sweet nothingness you crave.”

Pustulus Maximus added:

“Bud of Gods CBD is the perfect companion for job interviews, parole hearings, child births, and socially distanced funerals. Pusty sez, ‘It does a body good!'”

GWAR Team Up With Catoctin Creek For “Ragnarök Rye”

GWAR have joined forces with Catoctin Creek to create “Ragnarök Rye.” The 92 proof (46% ABV) whiskey is expected to be released in February 2021.

A press release said the following:

“Eons ago, the members of the intergalactic shock rock band known as GWAR descended on this world as passengers on a flaming comet that would bring about the destruction of most life on Earth. The asteroid plowed into the continent of Antarctica with devastating force, melting the ice, setting much of the world ablaze, and leaving a massive crater filled with the purest Antarctic water and a strangely intoxicating ichor that flowed from the veins of the immortal GWAR. Legend recorded these events as the tale of Ragnarök, the end of days. But like all endings, it was also a beginning. Now, this blood of the gods, harvested from the great caldera, has been distilled and bottled by Catoctin Creek Distilling Company as Ragnarök Rye.

The mad scientists at Catoctin Creek conducted experiments on aging the blood of GWAR in barrels made from the different types of wood scorched by the comet’s blast. They used the rarest of grains and watered their mash bill with the melted Antarctic ice to create a single 92 proof rye whisky, potstilled and then aged in charred new White Oak. Members of GWAR then hurl the whisky barrels into the orbit of the Moon, causing contraction to take place as the barrels spin under the influence of the deathly coldness of space and the life-giving heat of the sun. The end result is Ragnarök Rye, an exquisite beverage graced with notes of cherrywood and sugar maple to produce subtle flavors unheard of in a traditional rye whisky. Truly, there is nothing else in the vast universe like the rock band GWAR, and in tribute to the band’s originality as the most elaborate, and transgressive theatrical production in heavy metal history, the distillers at Catoctin Creek have made sure there is nothing else like Ragnarök Rye.”

GWAR’s Blothar the Berserker commented:

“Ahh, such a powerful spirit. A delicious sacrament to drink in preparation for battle, and it’ll get you really, really crazy.”

Catoctin Creek founder and general manager Scott Harris added:

“We were quite surprised when GWAR showed up at our distillery. Purcellville is a quiet town, so to have these intergalactic visitors was—honestly — a little stressful. We had to constantly keep an eye on them to keep them from breaking stuff, and they even tried to eat our dog, Otto. The only way we could get them to leave was to agree to bottle their whisky for them.”

GWAR Announce “Scumdogs XXX Live” Livestream Concert

GWAR will be performing “Scumdogs Of The Universe” in full with some special guests during a livestream concert on October 30. The virtual event will start at 5:00pm PDT/8:00pm EDT with a pre-show set to launch at 3:00pm PDT / 6:00pm EDT. Tickets can be found HERE. Blothar The Berserker commented:

“We always wanted to do a concert without an audience in the room. The audience is always the worst part. Well, that and the fact that we’re constantly being attacked by a bunch of assholes while we try to get through a set. Man, I hope none of those old school dicks show up to rain on our glorious parade.”

GWAR Announce October Drive-In Show

GWAR will be playing a drive-in show at the Diamond Drive In in Richmond, VA on October 10. Tickets for that event are available HERE. Blothar The Berserker commented:

“Denizens of Richmond, Virginia! Americans do everything in their cars, and now that will include watching the greatest rock and roll horror show on this or any other planet! Truly, what is October without a global pandemic and the chance to watch GWAR from the comfort of your shitty old hoopty?! Grab a hotdog, slather it in chili, and shove it down your throat as we bring you the pinnacle of entertainment, the ultimate creature feature, live and writhing…all over your windshield!”

GWAR Share Video For Remixed/Remastered Version Of “Cool Place To Park”

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.”
