GWAR announce new guitarist/on tour with Devildriver and Cancer Bats!


Heavy metal space mutants GWAR have announced their new guitarist Pustulus Maximus!

Lead singer Dave Brockie had this to say about the addition:
“Everyone knows we lost Cory last year and it’s been a rough time,” begins Brockie. “But we have been forging onwards, we’ve been writing new songs, and we’re in the middle of writing a really awesome new album. And part of the whole process was finding a new guitar player and I’m really happy [to say that] Brent Purgason, who plays in Antietam 1862 and Cannabis Corpse now plays in this little band called GWAR. He was a really good friend of Cory’s and he’s just a perfect fit. He actually got the job about a month ago and he’s been in the Slave Pit five days a week. We’ve been working really hard on the new album. . . His [character] name is ‘Pustulus Maximus.’”
