GWAR was the musical guest on last night’s (Thursday, October 27) edition of “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” on NBC. You can now watch video footage of the band’s performance below.
Bassist Casey Orr (a.k.a. Beefcake The Mighty) recently announced his departure from GWAR. He explained in a statement that he could “simply . . . no longer devote the time and effort required to maintain my position within the group. I have so many projects going on now in Texas, including a new RIGOR MORTIS record in the works, that it just wouldn’t be fair to everyone involved for me to stay and not be able to give 100%.” He has since been replaced by THE BURIAL guitarist Jamison Land.
Metal Blade Records released the vinyl versions of GWAR‘s “Lust and Space” and “Bloody Pit of Horror” albums.
GWAR‘s new album, “Bloody Pit Of Horror”, sold around 2,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The band’s previous CD, “Lust In Space”, opened with 5,000 units to debut at position No. 96 on The Billboard 200 chart.
