The horror-rock icons are back with a new singer and offerings including a CBD line, a graphic novel and—no joke—the first-ever GWAR dildo.
They say you can’t kill rock ’n’ roll. And when it comes to horror-rock icons GWAR, we know it is true. After guitarist Flattus Maximus died in 2011, the band rolled on. Then in 2014, lead singer Oderus Urungus died of a heroin overdose. Surely that was the end of the band? Nope. GWAR once again gathered the monstrous space wagons and plowed forward with Blothar the Berserker taking over as frontman. Alongside second guitarist Balsac the Jaws of Death, drummer Jizmak Da Gusha, lead guitarist Pustulus Maximus and bassist Beefcake the Mighty, Blothar and GWAR are planning to grow the band’s legacy of gore and guts for years to come.
Speaking of growing, GWAR will soon be releasing a line of CBD products known as Bud of the Gods to help all of us “human scum” get through these dark days. We caught up with Pustulus Maximus to discuss the band’s upcoming projects, which include a graphic novel, the previously mentioned CBD line, a new album and the first-ever GWAR dildo. No, we are not kidding about that last item—these costumed creep-rockers are ready to help you go fuck yourself. Strap in; here comes GWAR!
