“Let There Be GWAR!” Book Coming In September!


“Let There Be GWAR!” Book Coming In September!


The almighty GWAR will be kicking off their “30 Years of Total World Domination Tour” in August(dates here), but they have something else special planned for September! “Let There Be GWAR!” is a comprehensive behind-the-scenes history of the band, and the book that features over 350 pages of chaos will be available in September! As the press release states, “The book follows the band from the mid-1980s, known in GWAR lore as the “Dim Time,” when the group came together at a derelict dairy building in Richmond, Virginia, through the 1990s and 2000s, when the band spread across the face of the planet like a plague. This book is a record and testament to all that is GWAR, the band who redefined the meaning of performance in rock music with their outlandish costumes and intense theatrical performances. A GWAR show is more than a rock concert; it is an immersive experience, featuring hilarious storylines, absurd live gore effects, and hundreds of gallons of blood and other fluids sprayed on an eager audience.

Let There Be GWAR takes you backstage at these performances, a tour of the GWAR kingdom in photos, band posters, ephemera, production sketches and interviews that chronicle the band’s albums, comics and videos in a blood-stained hardbound tome. Bohabs the world over will delight in the wretched world of GWAR through the pages of this, the most monstrous book since The Necronomicon.

Not only that, but the first 150 copies of the book sold will be autographed by the band themselves! “Let There Be GWAR” is available for pre-order now, so GO PRE-ORDER IT!
