Just days after GWAR's triumphant return to the stage, the intergalactic metal warmongers have announced a massive 2014 North American tour. After a short break to properly mourn the loss of Dave Brockie (Oderus Urungus), GWAR will march on with new vocalist Blothar.

The fifth annual GWAR-B-Q was preceded by Oderus' viking funeral, giving friends, fans and bandmates the opportunity to say goodbye. Closing out the GWAR-B-Q, the alien act performed an awesome set with Blothar, who is portrayed by classic GWAR bassist and original Beefcake the Mighty, Mike Bishop.

"Dark clouds of war and ill omen have gathered around GWAR. In our hour of greatest peril, Oderus has left us and our enemies stand poised, ready to strike while they sense weakness," says GWAR guitarist BalSac the Jaws of Death. "But we shall no longer cower in our Antarctic stronghold, awaiting Destiny's final blow. This Fall GWAR sets out on the most trying quest of our career. We shall scour our leader's favorite stomping ground, North America, leaving no city unsearched, no venue unraised, and no sheep unmolested. GWAR will venture to the depths of Hell or to the very end of Time itself, and though I fear what we may encounter out there, I know that we can never return home until we have the answer we seek: 'Where is Oderus Urungus?'"

The current Beefcake the Mighty, Jamison Land, adds, "Dave was our friend and anchor for as far back as anyone can remember. He's held us together, and sometimes he drove us apart. He is our brother and we love him. Unlike a lot of prominent musicians, he was friends with all of the fans. He made GWAR fans feel special on a personal level.  The fans love Dave as much as we do and 'The GWAR Eternal Tour 2014' is our way of getting together and sharing that love."

The GWAR Eternal Tour 2014 will feature Decapitated for the tour's first leg and Corrosion of Conformity on its second leg. American Sharks are booked as support for the entire run.

All hail the return of GWAR! Check out the full list of tour dates below!
