If Devildriver plays last and GWAR only gets a 1 hour set this tour wont be worth it.

Truth. GWAR never had good openers for a while but in the last 2 years they took out The Casualties, Ghoul, Kylesa, and Municipal Waste. This tour lineup isn't that bad but it's a step in the wrong direction.

Oh fuck yes, they're playing 20 minutes from me! Last year was the first time I ever saw them, and it was AMAZING! One of the most memorable shows I ever went to, and I barely knew any of their songs going into it. Support is not bad either. Nobody I'm psyched to see, but no one terrible. But if you haven't been to a GWAR show before, and this is coming near you, don't miss it!

If you're the interviewer i'd imagine you would much rather get to interview him in character but personally I enjoy Brockie unmasked interviews much more. While the in character interviews can be funny he never really says anything important.

Also I saw an article that said the plot for this tour is gonna be GWAR kills god. They better fucking play Martyrdumb (or at least Meat Sandwich) if that's the case.

DevilDriver and Cancer bats both make better music than Gwar. Their live show is matched by very, very few bands, but musically Gwar leaves A LOT to be desired.


I'm considering going though. Gwar is Gwar, so that's reason 1. I'm a big DD fan and they've always impressed me live, and i'm not big on Cancer Bats, but they put on a pretty energetic and fun set at Heavy TO, so I wouldn't mind seeing them in a club.
