Last month we passed along details on Battle Maximus, the new concept album from the depraved demigods of mutant metal known as GWAR, and hinted that details of a massive world tour would be coming soon. True to his word, GWAR's vocal monstrosity Oderus Urungus has stepped forward with the full details of the tour's first phase, which is slated to begin on October 2nd in Columbus, OH and concludes in Washington, DC on November 17th. 
 
GWAR will be joined on the "Madness at the Core of Time" tour by world-famous deathcore unit Whitechapel and another FEARnet fave, A Band of Orcs, as well as thrash band Iron Reagan, featuring Municipal Waste singer Tony Foresta.

"Our loyal slaves have been laboring ceaselessly to create the ultimate GWAR show, and for this they have received nothing but abuse and torment,” Oderus declared in his uniquely elegant fashion. “I know our legions of loyal fans will be delighted to experience a whole new cast of ridiculous characters, all of whom shall meet exceedingly messy ends to the soundtrack of slaughter that our new album shall provide.”

"Don't commit suicide if your city/country/collection of mud-huts isn't on the list,” Oderus tastefully added. “We can't play every city in the world in one tour, as much as we would like to. There will be a whole year or more of shows in support of Battle Maximus, so either be patient, or take a fucking road trip!"
