Warbeast Tap Rigor Mortis/Ex-GWAR Bassist For Upcoming Tour

Posted by on February 21, 2013

Last week, GWAR announced that Warbeast and Wilson will be joining them on the latest leg of the Fate Or Chaos Tour kicking off in April. In need of a bassist, Warbeast has recruited none other than Casey Orr to fill-in on the road.

Singer Bruce Corbitt had the following to say about having his Rigor Mortis bandmate play with Warbeast on tour:

“Obviously we are all psyched to have Casey on board for this upcoming tour with GWAR and Wilson. I’ve always respected Casey’s professionalism, abilities and musicianship from our many years together in Rigor Mortis. This will be a natural and comfortable fit for Warbeast. Plus he’s still buds with all of the guys in GWAR, so this tour will be a blast… to say the least.”

Orr, who portrayed the role of Beefcake The Mighty in GWAR for many years before leaving in 2011, had the following to add:

“I am very excited to accept the challenge of playing bass for the mighty WARBEAST! I’m looking forward to crushing skulls with my brothers in the Beast, and I’m totally stoked to be bringing the thunder on the road this April, supporting my Scumdog family – GWAR. Texas Thrash will Destroy!”

The tour comes right as Warbeast unleashes it’s new album Destroy on April 2 via Housecore Records, which Corbitt claimed to us shows how the band has “evolved and improved.” Warbeast will be performing a record release show on April 6 at The Rail Club in Fort Worth, TX.
