“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 have shared a new live video for their song “Sick Of You.” You can check that out below. As previously reported, the band will be releasing a 30th anniversary edition of “Scumdogs Of The Universe“ on October 30.

“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 have shared a new video for a remixed/remastered version of “Cool Place To Park.” This version of the track is from the 30th anniversary edition of “Scumdogs Of The Universe,“ which will be released on October 30.
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.”
Lani Hernandez-David, an 18-year-old student in London, decided to pick up his grades in a hand-crafted costume based on late GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus. You can find some photos and footage of that in the below Instagram slideshow. You can also find some of Hernandez-David’s other creations, including Slipknot masks, HERE.

“This is the show you’ve been hoping for ever since you went down the rabbit hole of ‘Phallus In Wonderland‘ so many years ago.

In this episode you’ll get an in depth lessons on the History of GWAR, pound booze with JiZMak, witness an intimate conversion between Pustulus and Lzzy Hale of Halestorm, find your only real source for Fake News and if you are insanely lucky, you might be named as one of the Bohabs of the Week! And, oh yeah, did we forget to mention, we’ve got the X-COPS!!”
Balsac The Jaws Of Death also added the following about the show:
“It’s like Saturday Night Live, except it’s not on Saturday, it’s on Sunday., And it’s not live, it’s undead, And it’s not on TV, it’s on your computer or phone. And…it’s funny.”
Each episode will air on YouTube every second Sunday of the month and they will be followed by an “Undead Live!” livecast. You can find a trailer below:
