News : GWAR Battle for Adelaide coming 2018

By on December 16, 2017

Australian promotion company, DRW Entertainment have recently announced something rather massive. While the details are extremely scarce at the moment, we can only assume American metal heroes GWAR will be touring Australia in 2018 thanks to the poster below which was sent out to media outlets.

Unfortunately, at this point in time with such little details, we can neither confirm or deny if they’re actually touring the entire country or just Adelaide, as a way to troll the rest of the country. They could potentially be planning a festival, but again, we can neither confirm or deny this information until DRW Entertainment makes more information available.

Stay tuned to Metal Obsession for more details when they’re made available.

In October this year, the band released their fourteenth studio album, Blood Of The Gods, which is available now via Metal Blade Records.

Listen to the album in its entirety below.

The story of GWAR is carved across the history of this barren and hopeless planet, but GWAR themselves are not of this world… their story begins in the deepest reaches of outer space. Long ago, the beings who would become the rock band GWAR were part of an elite fighting force, the Scumdogs of the Universe. For eons, they served as thralls to a supreme being known only as the Master. But one by one, each future member of the band earned a glaring reputation for being an intergalactic fuck-up. And so, they were banished, sent away on a fool’s errand to conquer an insignificant shitball floating in a dark corner of the universe; the planet Earth. Once here, GWAR shaped the face of the globe, destroying and rebuilding the natural world, and giving rise to all of human history. Aliens to some, gods and demons to others, our erstwhile Scumdogs fucked apes to create the human race, and this fateful unplanned pregnancy would prove to be truly disastrous!

Their new album, “The Blood of Gods” is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of their great mistake, from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming. Humans are shown as what they are; a parasitical disease that must be eradicated before they suck the planet dry. Born of adversity, “The Blood of Gods” is a sonic scar…a question asked and answered…
