For a band that appears to be on tour all the time, you’d think that GWAR would have left their mark everywhere on Earth by now. But a new announcement from the band has confirmed that GWAR will be heading over to Japan to perform for the first time on Thursday, March 6th at Club Quattro in Osaka and Friday, March 7th at Akasaka Blitz in Tokyo.
On the subject of playing Japan, leader Oderus Urungus says:
“A lot of people think we have played there already because of our album, Live at Mt. Fuji, but that was in fact recorded in the future!”
“But the biggest reason we are going there is to reward all of those loyal and patient Japanese GWAR fans with what they have been yearning for in their blackest of dreams…an actual GWAR show.
From the official press release:
GWAR will bring their full show, featuring all the carnage, spew, and metallic mayhem that has enslaved legions of fans in North America and beyond. This of course means spontaneous beheadings and disembowelments shall be the order of the day, and a bloody attack by mutant cyborg Sawborg Destructo is sure to occur. GWARwill certainly fight back with their pulsing spew-cannon, the Biledriver, and Oderus has pledged to “blow wad everywhere” creating legions of mutated sex slaves to spread the disease of GWAR across the entire country. Even more alarming are the continued sightings of GWAR’s mighty pet Tyrannosaurus Rex, Gor-Gor, which have been coming ever closer to the region.
It’s safe to say that GWAR plan on making these Japan shows well worth the wait and anyone who’s seen the band live will tell you that concert-goers are in for a bloody treat.
