As they continued to prepare the Scumship for war, the unstoppable force known as GWAR has announced two Australian headline shows in addition to their appearances at this year’s Soundwave Festival. The first show is set for Wednesday, February 26th in Sydney at The Factory Theater and the second show is set for the following night Thursday, February 27th in Melbourne at 170 Russell. Supporting the Scumdogs on these two dates of devastation are AMON AMARTH, SATYRICON and THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER.
“The sickest, heaviest, most beastly bands of this years Soundwave will be joining forces to create the most hideous noise ever,” said notorious asshole Oderus Urungus, lead singer of GWAR and despoiler of the planet Remulak. “It’s an amazing line-up and I fully expect to see mounds of flaming corpses where once stood smiling fans.”
In other GWAR news that you probably heard about already, the most tasteless band in rock recently announced they would be bringing more of it! That’s right, the most disgusting spectacle in rock ‘n roll history is coming all the way from their homeland of Antarctica to the Land of the Rising Sun. After 28 years of relentless touring, getting lost and other general mayhem, GWAR is finally playing Japan!
After playing the gigantic Soundwave Festival in Australia and a couple of special headline dates, GWAR will travel north to play two exclusive shows in Japan, where legions of GWAR fans have been waiting patiently for years for their chance to die in the presence of their hulking metal overlords. Their wishes shall at last come true on Thursday, March 6th at Big Cat in Osaka, Japan, and Friday, March 7th at Akasaka Blitz in Tokyo. Tickets are on sale now.
