This fall will be a busy one for GWAR as the Scumdogs of the Universe will not only release a new studio album in October, but embark on a lengthy tour beginning in late-September which will stretch into December.

Their new record is titled The Blood of Gods, and it drops Oct. 20 via Metal Blade Records. In support, our Lords and Masters will leave their arctic slumber and return to the road to cause aural devastation across North America.

Joining in the chaos will be Ghoul, Doyle (Oct. 20- Nov. 5), He Is Legend (Nov. 7 - Dec. 10) and U.S. Bastards. The tour starts off with a trio of late-September gigs, including a return to Riot Fest Chicago, then kicks into high gear on the day the new LP is released in Richmond, Va. and runs through Dec. 10, wrapping up in Detroit, Mich. The trek also will feature a stop in New York City on Halloween as well. The complete list of dates can be found below.

"Humans, we are coming to tear your world apart with a live performance the likes of which has never been seen on this or any other planet," the Berserker Blothar says in a statement. "This album, The Blood of Gods, is the greatest thing since French toast. Just hearing these songs performed will result in an instant paroxysm of weeping, gnashing of teeth, and the uncontrollable voiding of your filthy bowels. Now, we are taking the whole bloody sh-tshow on the road, with the most spectacular, blood-drenched, gruesome, and terrifying rock concert of all time. Don't miss your chance to sacrifice yourself to GWAR at a venue near you!"

There will also be a an opportunity for fans to take part in "The Lords and Masters VIP Experience," which includes a ticket with early entry, access to GWAR's soundcheck and an invitation to play an instrument onstage, a photo opportunity with the band and a designated pit area. Also, GWAR promises to kill fans onstage during the show who take part in the VIP experience, of which only five tickets will be made available per show. Full details can be found here.

General admission tickets and VIP Packages go on sale to the public this Friday Aug. 18h at 10:00am Eastern.
