The world's most lovably disgusting space invaders, GWAR, have just announced the dates and venues for the second leg of their "Return of the World Maggot Tour" this spring -- as well as which bands will be joining them on the tour. Get all the deets after the jump. And be sure to catch GWAR's Oderus Urungus when he brings his good looks and table manners to FEARnet's "Twisted Comedy" series Holliston, premiering on April 3rd. (The trailer for which can be viewed below.) Oderus will also have a new exclusive vlog here on FEARnet, "Advice for Humans".
Here's the official press release we just received for part 2 of GWAR's "Return of the World Maggot Tour"...
Not content with five weeks of North American destruction and devastation, mutant overlords GWAR have announced a second leg to their Spring "Return of the World Maggot Tour". This leg kicks off April 13th in San Antonio, Texas and wraps up April 28th in Allentown, PA. Support on this leg of the tour will come from Kylesa, Ghoul and Legacy of Disorder.
Tickets for fan club members go on sale tomorrow February 8th and tickets will go on sale to the general public Friday February 10th .
"These press releases usually go something like this--", said bellicose front-thing Oderus Urungus. "There is a general statement about what GWAR is up to, then I say something stupid, then it goes to a list of the shows and a bunch of links. That's what's happening right now. We really have to work harder to make these things more interesting."
Oderus adjusted his tie and continued -- "We are finishing this last spate of shows as a tribute to fallen Scumdog Flattus Maximus, and will be playing as a four piece behind the screaming assault of Balsac. In this way we shall give all the US bohabs ample chance to fall to their knees in a sobbing heap when confronted with the reality of Flattus' departure...and a chance to say farewell. Then GWAR can move forward, and we shall."
The first leg of the tour kicks off with a special tribute show for fallen band mate and friend Cory Smoot, AKA Flattus Maximus, in Richmond, VA, at The National Theater on Friday March 16th. All proceeds from the Richmond show will benefit the "Smoot Family Fund" which has been established to help support Cory's widow and their unborn child. Support on this run will come from fellow Richmond metallers Municipal Waste and California's Ghoul. Legacy of Disorder will join the tour on March 20th in Boston and will run through April 11th in Fort Collins, CO.
