GWAR IS RECORDING A COVER ALBUM FOR THEIR 30TH ANNIVERSARY!
Great news GWAR fans! The legends just unleashed their latest album, “Battle Maximus,” this week, but are already looking toward the future! In a recent interview with Loudwire, Oderus Urungus said this on 2014, “We are going to do a new record. We’ve been talking about a follow-up to ‘Battle Maximus.’ It’ll be coming out for next year for the 30th anniversary. It’s going to be an all-cover album and it will be called ‘GWAR Covered,’ and then the cover will be the cuttlefish just covering someone in some kind of filthy icker. It’ll be beautiful. I’m gonna divvy it up amongst the band. I’m gonna let everybody in the band pick two or three songs and then I’m going to throw those all out and then I’m gonna decide on everything myself. I’m gonna do a lot of classic rock. We’re gonna hit some Motorhead, we’re gonna hit some Thin Lizzy, we’re gonna do some more Who, we might do some Engelbert Humperdinck, we might do a Neil Diamond medley. I wanna do that song about ‘leaving the cake out in the rain and it took so long to bake it, I don’t think that I can fake it and I’ll never have that recipe again’ … that one; that f—ing song! Maybe that one by the Cranberries, you know, where she sounds like she’s having an anorexic vomiting fit. I don’t know, we’ll figure it out when we get there, but we’re definitely doing some Springsteen.”
