“GWAR and Hatebreed together is really gonna fuck some people up” says space alien Oderus Urungus of the news that Scumdogs of the Universe GWAR are to be joining up with hardcore heroes Hatebreed on a mini-tour this September (dates listed below). The tour will also feature Iron Reagan, which is made up of members from Municipal Waste and Cannabis Corpse.
Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed is excited to be playing with GWAR:
“We’re extremely happy to finally hook up some GWAR/Hatebreed dates after years of trying to get our schedules to connect! We’ll have spent this entire summer rocking stages in Europe so it will be great to get back to the good ole USA, to get down & dirty in the clubs with our favorite mutants from Antarctica. These gigs are not to be missed!”
The satirical shock-rockers are also gearing up for their 4th annual GWAR-B-Q, which features bands such as Municipal Waste and Battlecross and will take place at a waterpark. Actually going in the water might not be the best idea during the festivities, but it still sounds like a hell of a time. GWAR will also be appearing at Chicago’s “Riot Fest” for the second year in a row.
