Metal long-running monster freakshow Gwar have officially started work on a new album. While the band are currently on the road with Municipal Waste, they issued a statement assuring fans that, while there is no release date yet, there will be a new Gwar album.
Gwar are soldiering on with their "Return of the World Maggot" tour, and have just announced another run of tour dates for the tour. Joining them will be party thrashers Municipal Waste, with Ghoul providing support.
Despite the absence of departed brother Cory Smoot, aka Flattus Maximus, Gwar delivered the goods to the crowd at The Glass House in Pomona, California, this past Sunday night, November 13, with radical aplomb, pumping out a killer setlist at very high volume.
Many are still reeling from the news yesterday that Gwar guitarist Cory Smoot had passed away at the age of 34 while on tour. His bandmates found him dead on the tour bus as they prepared to cross into Canada while on their current tour with Everytime I Die and Ghoul.
It has just been announced that Gwar guitarist Cory Smoot -- better known to the legions of Gwar fans as Flattus Maximus -- has passed away. Smoot was found dead this morning as they prepared to cross into Canada while on their Return of the World Maggot Tour.
It's hard to describe a Gwar show to someone who's never attended one. How does one adequately describe the Jagermonsta, the World Maggot and the infamous Cuttlefish to an outsider? How do you explain that if you go to a Gwar show, you're going to end up covered in blood, bile and any number of other bodily fluids, and still have the night of your life?
Last night, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon had some special guests all the way from Antarctica: the mighty Gwar. Gwar took the stage on Fallon to promote their current tour with Every Time I Die and Ghoul, better known as the Return of the World Maggot Tour. You can check out a video from the performance below.
