There’s no more satisfying task in life than to serve our high Antarctican junk-lords GWAR. To be a Bohab is to take part in the most elaborate and disgusting sex act that mankind has ever know. Now, it’s time to fire up the nail-studded Sybian once more, as GWAR have announced a new album, as well as an accompanying comic book for you to read on the can.
GWAR’s 15th studio album will be titled The New Dark Ages, and will see the light of day on June 3rd from the band’s own Pit Records. The album is already available for preorder. You can check out the cover art below.
“This is the greatest rock record of all time,” insists dual-johnsoned overlord Berseker Blóthar. ” These are the songs for a new age, a New Dark Age, when men live by the dimming light of a technology destined to betray them Listen, as we have a rock and roll orgy in the ruins of the world to celebrate humanity’s descent into an age of darkness, disease, ignorance, and death.”
With the album also comes a new graphic novel, Gwar In the Duoverse of Absurdity, which will be published on the same date by Z2 Comics, who also made Dio’s Holy Diver graphic novel and King Diamond’s Abigail graphic novel. The comic is available for preorder.
“This was the most utterly engrossing book I’ve ever read!” said GWAR’s behooved guitarist Bälsäc The Jaws ‘o Death. “I couldn’t wait until I’d read what was on the page before I was compelled to turn it! This novel has the one element that is missing in so many so-called literary masterpieces: It’s about me!”
“GWAR has made sure that this story is a full throttle hysterical ride into tipping every sacred cow possible and I consider it an honor to help bring this chapter of the band’s legacy to fetid, pulsing, life,” said Z2 editor Rantz Hoseley as his shackles were clamped on.
Get ready for GWAR in 2022, you blithering primates!
