Virginia, USA metal warriors GWAR shall return to LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON 10/27/2011 on NBC.


Antarctic metal-mutants ready to crush North America

Hot off their last-second saving of the annual GWAR-B-Q, and lead singer Oderus Urungus’s wrapping of his new TV show, FEARnet’s “HOLLISTON”, out this spring, GWAR has announced “that for the second straight year they will be appearing on “Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon”, on Thursday October 27th as part of their humungous “Return of the World Maggot” tour, set to crawl forth from Hell next week.

“We are overjoyed that Jimmy had the good sense to invite us back”, declared front-thing Oderus Urungus (whose tweets are hilarious -- follow him @therealoderus) “as we had planned to return anyway. Now Fallon can do the show with his head still attached to his body.”

In the continuing support of their insanely heavy latest Metal Blade release – last year’s “Bloody Pit of Horror”, GWAR is set to hit the road starting Oct. 18th, along with Every Time I Die and either GHOUL or Warbeast (depending on where in the country you are), for a six-week tour of major GWAR strongholds.

Oderus had this to say about the upcoming slaughter-fest – “Ever since we acquired a Skumship (GWAR’s intergalactic war-barge), we have had to spend more time off-planet, you know, killing stuff, so we couldn’t visit as many shit-hole clubs as we would normally. That means all you GWAR bohabs will have to show your devotion by driving endless miles in dangerous vehicles just so you can be ripped into shreds and have your girlfriend devoured by a giant worm.”

In other Slave-Pit news, GWAR has revealed that the brutal hazing ritual required of any new member is finally over, and that they are pleased to announce that Louisville musician Jamison Land has landed the coveted spot of personal man-servant to GWAR bass player Beefcake the Mighty.

Said Land, “I’m ecstatic to be a part of GWAR, it is a dream come true. My first GWAR show was in 1994 at the age of 15. At 18 I worked in a club in Louisville, KY, and I got to make GWAR’s deli-tray. I was so proud.

Jamison, who for years has been a member of Louisville punk band The Burial , continued—“I feel a bit sore…the initiation is brutal. I probably won’t be able to sit down for a week!”
