Back in June, GWAR released their fifteenth studio album, The New Dark Ages. As of today, a new GWAR graphic novel has been released (said book is called GWAR In the Duoverse of Absurdity). To celebrate the release of the new record and graphic novel, the band have announced a new North American tour! Per a press release associated with this news, band singer Blothar the Berserker shares the following:

“Long ago, GWAR broke the frame of what a rock concert can be. We’ve pushed the envelope of live performance for decades, but this time around, we wanted to do something different. This is the first GWAR show conceived to go along with a graphic novel and an album, all working together as one massive hunk of hot steaming shock rock performance ART! A can’t-miss cavalcade of chaos, a trash culture trilogy, a shocking extravaganza that will leave you utterly spent, soaking wet, and bawling uncontrollably. We’ve got the coolest storyline, unbelievable new characters, more blood, gore, and gags than ever before. Come, unload your worries, human scum, and let GWAR transport you to the Duoverse of absurdity just in time for the NEW DARK AGE!”

Joining GWAR on The Black Death Rager World Tour will be: Light The Torch, Nekrogoblikon, and Crobot. Below you will find all the dates and locations associated with this tour. Also, don’t forget that a brand new GWAR documentary is coming out soon! If you are itching for even more GWAR news, check out our two-part interview with Blothar! Links below for each story.
