Gwar to release new album 'The New Dark Ages' in June

Gwar

Official press release:

GWAR is set to release their ambitious new album The New Dark Ages June 3rd on CD and Digital, and on September 16th on Vinyl and Cassette via GWAR's own label Pit Records. Pre-orders are available at: gwar.net/collections/the-new-dark-ages

The album concept is tied to a companion graphic novel, "GWAR In the Duoverse of Absurdity," which will be released by Z2 Comics on June 3rd. In the graphic novel the band are sucked off into an alternate universe to do battle with their evil twins and the specter of rogue technology. On The New Dark Ages our heroes floorboard it through a kaleidoscope of hard driving heavy metal, and rock-n-fucking roll, building on their hilarious mythos, introducing cool new characters, and cataloging mankind's hapless abandonment of their passions, rituals, and beliefs.

The Berserker Blóthar says: "This is the greatest rock record of all time. These are the songs for a new age, a New Dark Age, when men live by the dimming light of a technology destined to betray them. Listen, as we have a rock and roll orgy in the ruins of the world to celebrate humanity's descent into an age of darkness, disease, ignorance, and death."

The New Dark Ages is available for pre-order on cassette, CD, and multiple different colors of vinyl (whiskey, sunbolt and black/gold marble) and the graphic novel as both soft and hard cover. Bundles are available including ones with Blóthar bobbleheads, and a one of a kind Beefcake helmet. See them all at gwar.net/collections/the-new-dark-ages.

Produced by Ronan Murphy. Album artwork by Alex Horley.
