Announcing the Hell-O! 36th Anniversary Edition & Never Before Seen Footage!

Announcing the Hell-O! 36th Anniversary Edition & Never Before Seen Footage!

Human Scum! Raise Your Horns!

Your Infamous Lords and Masters of Shock Rock are thrilled to announce the re-issue of their landmark masterpiece album, 'Hell-O!,' on this, its 36th anniversary. The new release will be blood-spattered clear vinyl and includes expanded artwork featuring never-before-seen photos from the time, including the original album release show in Richmond.

Over those 36 years many have tried to destroy the footage filmed at the recording of this album, but all have failed. For the first time ever, you can now see part of that footage here. Pre-order 'Hell-O' and return to GWAR.net on Sept 13th to see all of this never-before-seen video!

'Hell-O! (36th Anniversary Edition)' will be available in physical form only with limited runs of both CD and Vinyl. It is due out September 13th on the band’s own label: Pit Records. Pre-Order right here!

To help celebrate this momentous release, the iconic heavy metal collective is also reprinting the "GWAR Must Die" t-shirts made oh-so-famous back in their original pillaging days by human rabble everywhere. Get yours HERE!

As some of you may know, the current lead singer of the band, Blóthar the Berserker, once inhabited the earthly form of GWAR’s original bass player, Beefcake the Mighty. We asked Blóthar for his feelings on this momentous occasion: “It was the 80’s. I was so young and scared. I will always remember wandering around the seedy sex arcades of Times Square, pants around my ankles, tears in my eyes…little did I know, I was working on the most important record in the history of shock rock. We were polishing a turd for the ages…we wanted to call it 'Beat the Meatles,' but the record company said no…and 'Hell-O' was born.

GWAR circa 1988

GWAR Announces “Age of Entitlement” Tour

Your Lords and Masters GWAR will embark on “The Age of Entitlement Tour” for two more legs of 2024 headline dates in support of their most recent album “New Dark Ages.” Prepare yourself!

This summer, the band has enlisted drug metal addicts WEEDEATER along with the habitually offensive cop rock of X-COPS as support. The savage hardcore weirdness of openers SQUID PISSER will alienate what is left of the audience.

In September, GWAR will go out again to kick more human ass, this time with absolutely brutal Latin American death grinders Brujeria, NOLA grindcore face-melters BRAT, and the reptilian Christianity of hardcore punk/metal evangelists Cancer Christ.

GWAR vocalist Blothar the Berserker commented: “This is an incredible time in the history of the world, so much death and destruction in the face of so much senseless entitlement and arrogant darkness. We cannot wait to shock some sense into humanity with the most outrageous performance of heavy metal theater ever to descend from the gods.

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10:00 AM local time. Pre-sale tickets are available now through Thursday at 10:00 PM local time in the bohab's lair!

X-COPS are back! After 25 years on the lam, the original Bad Boys of Law Enforcement have returned, bringing their unique brand of heavy metal with them. The world has never been more in need of the message they bring: “Respect authority, or else!”, and they have the riffs and the firepower to back it up!

Get Limited Edition, Etched Vinyl, CDs and New Merch Here!

Rumors about the identities of these uniformed thugs are rampant, with some even going as far as to say that they are made up of members of such legendary bands as GWAR, Rigor Mortis, and Darkest Hour, but the truth is they are actually former police officers who have banded together to beat the world into submission, force feed the public their own brand of Justice, and spread the word that All Cops Are Beautiful!

Download or stream Light 'Em Up Here!

Commenting on the new release, Sheriff Tub Tucker had this to say, “Listen up you degenerate punks! X-COPS are back on the streets with a new e.p. coming to disturb your peace! 5 armor-piercing tracks, locked and loaded and aimed directly between your eyes. This slab of police brutality features the single 'Light ‘Em Up', a little tale of how the fire that burned down the Branch Davidians in Waco, TX really started! Spoiler: it was us!

Announcing The Age Of Befuddlement Tour

Lead singer, The Berserker Blothar, had this to say about the impending trek: "The Invasion of Canada is nigh. We will start our campaign to bring befuddlement to the masses in the cultured and forward-thinking American South, and from there, we will launch a coast-to-coast attack on the Great White North, leaving a swath of destruction not seen since the War of 1812. Stopping only to get high in the Pacific Northwest, we will dive directly into the gaping hole of the donut, the American Midwest, before gracing the Dirty South and ending again on the filthy streets of Baltimore! I wonder if we can score crack in the “City that Reads.” Are You Not Befuddled?"

Battle Maximus Is Out Today, And Introducing The Li'l Raspy Plush Toy

Battle Maximus Is Out Today, And Introducing The Li'l Raspy Plush Toy

Ten years have passed since the release of GWAR’s masterwork known as “Battle Maximus.” The record is a tribute to fallen Scumdog Warrior Flattus Maximus (AKA Corey Smoot) and was the last album recorded with vocalist Oderus Urungus (AKA Dave Brockie) before he departed the planet Earth in 2014. Today, in celebration of this momentous occasion GWAR have released a 10th Anniversary Edition of “Battle Maximus.”

In addition to being completely remixed and remastered, this edition features the final recorded vocal performance of Oderus Urungus on the previously unreleased and never-before heard song “Tammy, The Swine Queen.” Listen to it HERE. Purchase or stream the album HERE.

Checking in from the road, vocalist BlothaR the Berserker commented: “Musically, Battle Maximus is a great debut work by Pustulus Maximus, and lyrically, it is the final word of lead singer and band founder Oderus Urungus, The record is run through with the desperate, dangerous, and fully bananas imagination of Oderus. In fact, this re-release includes a song so nutty we named it twice, and then promptly forgot to put it on the record the first time around. ‘Tammy, Queen of Dirt,’ or, ‘Tammy the Swine Queen’ is the final performance of the maestro of mayhem, Oderus Urungus, and for our fans, it does not disappoint.

The double vinyl also features expanded packaging, redesigned art and an embossed cover. Available now are the standard LP is Crystal Blue with Dark Blue swirl vinyl, the Bandbox exclusive version is Stained Glass vinyl, Newbury Comics version is White with Blue swirl vinyl and Revolver Icons Series features multiple different colors all with NFTs to authenticate.

Your Lords and Masters are also pleased to announce that you can finally buy your very own plush “Lil’ Raspy'' doll. This fuzzy neon green platypus of despair is our first official GWAR plushy, and it is simply the cutest thing you will ever see on this or any other planet. Raspy may be a murderous Artificial Intelligence come to life, but he is also the coolest toy on the shelves this year! This toy is in stock and ships immediately! Order yours HERE.
