The Intergalactic Scumdog Warriors GWAR are declaring war on humanity (AGAIN!) for their upcoming "Age of Imbeciles" Tour!

Lead singer, The Berserker Blothar had this to say about the impending battle:

"Attention People of Earth! Halloween is coming, and your world is up in flames. You're a bunch of hairless apes with the smoothest of all brains. We see you there, groping in the chaos of maddening darkness. GWAR is coming to end your suffering, to bring a close to the Age of Imbeciles."
