For the first time since frontman David "Oderus Urungus" Brockie's passing away in 2014, and for the first time since 2013's Battle Maximus, Gwar will be doing a new album. Gwar is currently fronted by Mike Bishop, who is playing the character Blothar. You may very well know Bishop as ex-bassist Beefcake the Mighty, who was with Gwar from 1987 to 1993, and then again from 1998 to 1999. So it's cool that they've got someone fronting the band who at least knows the history, right?
Anyway, that's the reason there isn't a Gwar-B-Q this year. Because new Gwar is coming… but on the plus side, touring!
Why is the GWAR B-Q postponed? Well, this is the good news! The band is working on a new album and a whole new show that will blow your minds faster and harder than a meth addicted hooker blows a paycheck. Also, GWAR are about to take on the craziest year of touring in the band’s recent history, and will be destroying North America literally all year! We are still lining up dates for the year long killing spree, but don’t worry Bohabs, GWAR will be coming to visit all of your little shithole towns, and together, we will Make America Bleed Again!
For the record, this is the first time since Gwar-B-Q's inception in 2010 that the event won't take place.
