GWAR Release New Sex Toy Based On Oderus Urungus’ Cuttlefish Of Cthulhu

GWAR have joined forces with Bad Dragon to create a new sex toy based on the late Oderus Urungus’ Cuttlefish Of Cthulhu. If you’re interested, you can find one HERE. The following was said about the collaboration:

“GWAR recently seized control of the red-hot phallic forges deep in the Bad Dragon lair, where legendary sex-smiths work day and night to create the highest-quality fantasy-themed adult toys in the business. The result is a new monster dong for the denizens of planet Earth. Now, you too can wield the awesome power of the winged wiener of Oderus Urungus, the Cuttlefish of Cthulu!”

“Imagine the sheer horror on the faces of all the happy families aboard, let’s say, another cruise when they look across the sea and see GWAR decapitating someone on the main deck of a big-ass boat filled with a few thousand crazed metalheads. If there’s any better reason to go on the Headbangers Boat, I can’t think of one…well, that and all our other friends we’ve played shows on land with that will be joining us. It’s gonna be a party for sure – see y’all somewhere in the Atlantic!”

“A thrash metal cruise vacation to the Bahamas? Hell yea! Headbangers Boat! We’re stoked about this one y’all! Join us in a celebration of the heavy metal movement that these bands and these fans have been building for the last two decades. Lots of incredible bands with some more surprises announcing soon. LFG!”

GWAR Share Music Video For “The Cutter” Featuring Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale

GWAR have shared an age-restricted music video for “The Cutter.” The track, which features Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale, appears on the band’s latest album “The New Dark Ages.”

GWAR‘s Blöthar The Berserker commented:

“Lzzy Hale is wonderfully talented. Few realize she is also an undercover Scumdog who came to Earth with the rest of GWAR eons ago under her true name Clitaurus Maximus of the Maximus clan. We are delighted to have her voice and image on this work of absolute genius.”

Hale added:

“I, Clitaurus Maximus the She Bull… hereby declare, ‘The Cutter‘ as my FIRST feature in a MOTHERFUCKING GWAR SONG! Thank you so much to these interplanetary warriors for the much-appreciated bloodletting, and for giving this lil’ beast the opportunity to rear her three ugly heads!”

Light The Torch Drop Off Fall Tour With GWAR After Being “Unable To Find An Affordable Reliable Vehicle To Tour In”

Light The Torch have dropped off their upcoming tour with GWAR, Nekrogoblikon, and Crobot. The band had to sit out the trek after being “unable to find an affordable reliable vehicle to tour in.”

Light The Torch issued the following statement:

“It’s with great disappointment that we must announce we are pulling off the upcoming fall GWAR tour as well as the one Light The Torch headline show on Sep-17 in Columbus, OH. Since confirming the GWAR tour 2 months ago, we’ve been unable to find an affordable reliable vehicle to tour in, and with the tour starting in just a week we’re at the point where we can’t keep everyone in limbo. It’s such a unique time for touring bands right now with touring essentials in such high demand and low supply, something we’re experiencing first hand.

We sincerely apologize to the GWAR camp that we couldn’t find a way to make this happen. They have been nothing but accommodating and we know it would’ve been an amazing tour for us to do. We’re truly heartbroken and wish we had better news.

We encourage you all to still check out the tour when it comes to your town, featuring GWAR, Nekrogoblikon and Crobot.

Thanks to all of our fans for your understanding and continued support. We miss being out there and look forward to seeing you all again soon. Until then, stay safe and be well. Love LTT.”
