Masters of medieval metal, the mighty Gwar, are poised to return to the world of man as they announced the first leg of their massive "Madness At The Core Of Time" world tour - this time through North America. The band will be touring in support of their upcoming new album, Battle Maximus, to be out on September 17th via Metal Blade Records. On this tour Gwar will be joined by deathcore heavyweights and label-mates Whitechapel, thrashers Iron Reagan (featuring Municipal Waste singer Tony Foresta) and A Band Of Orcs.

Frontman Dave Brockie (Oderus Urungus) says: "Our loyal slaves have been laboring ceaselessly to create the ultimate Gwar show, and for this they have received nothing but abuse and torment. I know our legions of loyal fans will be delighted to experience a whole new cast of ridiculous characters, all of whom shall meet exceedingly messy ends to the soundtrack of slaughter that our new album shall provide. Get ready world…Gwar is coming.

Let me make something perfectly clear. Don't commit suicide if your city/country/collection of mud-huts isn't on the list. We can't play every city in the world in one tour, as much as we would like to. There will be a whole year or more of shows in support of Battle Maximus, so either be patient, or take a fucking road trip!"

Whitechapel guitarist Alex Wade comments regarding the tour: "We're extremely excited to announce that we will be direct supporting the almighty Gwar this fall. The tour will be hitting some spots we haven't been in a while and we're looking forward to having a blast on tour with them so come out and get Gwar'ed with us!"
