Gwar — who made our year-end albums list — are going back out on the road next month for the last tour on this latest album’s promotional cycle. If you want those dates, you can find them after the jump, at the tail end of this post.

According to a press release, “The Lords and Masters of this world apparently tired of abusing penguins and are ready to return to the surface world and begin the homestretch towards the conclusion of their seemingly endless 25th-anniversary ‘Slay-a-Bration,’ which has now grown to encompass their 26th year of rebirth on Earth from the icy prison that for centuries had been their fate.”

I guess after that, the band will start working on a new record. Great. “It seems we were about 8,000 zombies short of our goal, which was to fill every hull of our Skumdog War Fleet with blood-mad slavering zombie shock-soldiers,” commented frontman Oderus Urungus. “So we decided to come back to the U.S., re-open the Bloody Pit, and mutate some more of our helpless followers. Then we shall invade the very heart of the galaxy with our infected hatred and lust for war against all things alive. That and party.”
