Intergalactic metal merchants GWAR are set to pillage the Earth once again with their announcement of a fall North American 2012 tour. Coming along for the ride will be DevilDriver, Cancer Bats and Legacy of Disorder.

After successfully completing an insanely awesome tour with Municipal Waste and Ghoul, GWAR plan to squirt blood and guts on North American soil once again with their 'Fate or Chaos' Fall Tour. "Once again GWAR returns, hoof and nail, to our old stomping grounds, North America, on a tour of utter destruction, and this time nothing less than the greatest power in the universe will do as our primary victim!," yells GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus. "That's right, this time GWAR, fresh from our battle with Death, takes on another of history's biggest assholes...God himself! Seeing as we don't have the new album done yet, we really had to do something spectacular."

Having tragically lost guitarist Flattus Maximus (Cory Smoot), GWAR have sought out other members of the Maximus clan to fill his giant shoes. "This tour will also see the arrival of a new Scumdog brother to aid GWAR in our quest to destroy everything that sucks," Urungus eloquently states. "That's right, I can finally reveal certain details regarding our new album...ever since our missing band mate Flattus Maximus took his leave of Earth, members of the Maximus tribe have been showing up at our Antarctic fortress, not only to pay their respects but also eat all of our food. And also lay tracks on the new album!"

The GWAR front-thing explains, "You see, every member of the Maximus family rips on guitar (though Flattus taught them all they know), and they were anxious to help us fill the void left by Flattus. We have been working with his brothers Pustulus, Infecticus, Bubonus and even the shunned Corpulus...and right now they are fighting it out as to which one of them will stay here with the mighty GWAR for the Fate of Chaos Tour...and beyond! Get ready world, this fall shall see the birth of a new Scumdog!"

Get ready to be covered in no less than three types of alien body fluids as GWAR will once again ransack cities around North America. Check out the 'Fate or Chaos' tour dates below.
