GWAR / “A rock and roll orgy in the ruins of the world”

GWAR return to the road with the first leg of The Black Death Rager World Tour beginning on 29 July 2022 in Tilburg. The new album The New Dark Ages will be released on 3 June 2022.

The tour finds GWAR on European soil for the first time in nearly three years, with the band also set to Bloodstock, Wacken Open Air and Pol’land’Rok Festivals.

“Ah Europe, the Old Country.” The Berserker Blóthar ha said. “We shall sweep across the continent like the plague, bringing pestilence and death and our unquenchable thirst for Heavy Metal glory.”

The New Dark Ages album is linked with a companion graphic novel, GWAR In The Duoverse of Absurdity. Here, the band are sucked off into an alternate universe to do battle with their evil twins and the spectre of rogue technology.

“This is the greatest rock record of all time,” Blóthar says. “These are the songs for a new age, a New Dark Age when men live by the dimming light of a technology destined to betray them. Listen, as we have a rock and roll orgy in the ruins of the world to celebrate humanity’s descent into an age of darkness, disease, ignorance, and death.”

The New Dark Ages is available in a host of options, along with the graphic novel, at
