All eyes were on Gwar at the GwarBQ last month to see who the hell the singer of the band was going to be, with the passing of frontman Dave Brockie, who portrayed Oderus Urungus. Now that we know it'll be Blothar, the question that lingers is what the hell is Gwar going to be doing on their upcoming national tour?
The band was interviewed by Billboard Magazine over the weekend at Chicago's Riot Fest and gave some clues as to the storyline of the tour:
[T]he band members say they will stay true to the premise of the upcoming tour, which is a search for Oderus. “We’re still looking for him," Roberts quips. "I think he’s holed up somewhere with a prostitute.”
“We’re gonna scour the goddamn Earth for him because he owes me money,” Roberts later adds.
“I’m sure we’re gonna find him,” Mike Derks (Balsac the Jaws of Death) jokes. "We might go as far as Cleveland." Why Cleveland, you ask? “There’s a huge crack problem there. Besides the Browns suck, so why wouldn’t he be there?”
It seems like the band will continue their quest for Oderus on their upcoming tour. Having seen the way they got their shit together for the GwarBQ, I'm really excited to see what the band has in store for us once they've had plenty of time to work out the kinks of their new lineup. Get dates for their upcoming tour here.
Speaking of new members, it looks as though Gwar has added a new female member, Vulvatron, who you can see in the two photos below. Vulvatron seems to be the successor to the great Slymenstra Hymen, who, while still a member of Gwar, has since relocated to Los Angeles for stunt work and would not be able to commit to Gwar full time. We've sent some questions to the Gwar camp to get to know Vulvatron a bit better and will report back on it soon.
