Despite the passing away of lead-singer Dave Brockie, GWAR recently announced that this year’s GWAR-B-Q is still on. The band has revealed an initial lineup which includes some serious heavy-weights among the metal punk scene.
On March 24 the death of frontman Dave Brockie, -AKA Oderus Urungus- was announced and came as a shock to the metal community world-wide. This didn’t stop the legendary band from celebrating the life of one of it’s founding members and so they announced the creation of the Dave Brockie Foundation, an organization that strives to preserve the art and music of Brockie and promising talents.
In addition, GWAR-B-Q is on, alongside with a public memorial service that will be held at Hadad’s Lake in Richmond, VA the day before (the same location as the main event). It certainly won’t be a regular memorial, it will include all the fun GWAR is capable of
Fans, friends, family and bohabs will have the opportunity to pay their respects, as they drunkenly toast with a GWAR Beer in one hand, while wearing the commemorative Dave Brockie Fund vomit stained t-shirt as Oderus Urungus is set ablaze in a Viking Funeral Pyre on the lake.
As alway Slave Pit Inc. has announced the first bands confirmed for the event. Check them out below.
