GWAR has announced that it will be embarking on the 30 Years of Total World Domination tour in late summer, featuring support acts Butcher Babies and Battlecross. Beginning August 25 in Millvale, PA until September 18 in Rochester, NY, the tour commemorates the renowned metal act’s “three decades of bloodlust, throttling the life from humanity, and perverting the human imagination,” citing the tour as “a celebration of unimaginable torment.”
Lead guitarist Brent Purgason (a.k.a. Pustulus Maximus) states “I’ve survived prisons, gulags, religious protests, surfing a crucial wave on D-Day, and even an ISIS spaghetti dinner, so this is nothing. Bring it on! GWAR is coming!, Where is Baltimore?”
Most recently, vocalist Kim Dylla (a.k.a. Vulvatron) joined DC industrial act Mindless Faith onstage for the band’s Baltimore performance with Velvet Acid Christ and Ego Likeness, having appeared on the band’s 2007 album Medication for the Misinformed. Dylla officially joined GWAR in 2014 following the death of founding member and lead singer Dave Brockie (a.k.a. Oderus Urungus) in March of that year.
