began as a joke in the late 1980s, has become a band with more longevity than anyone could have ever imagined. Gwar came about
when a band called Death Piggy decided to create a fictitious band that would open for them at concerts. The fake band, originally
called Gwaaarrrggjjllgh, was supposedly from Antarctica and dressed in creature costumes, sacrificing made-up animals. While
the members of Death Piggy got a kick out of passing their fake band off as a real opening act, the joke was on them. Fans
started coming to concerts just to see Gwaaarrrgghhllgh, and then leaving before Death Piggy went on. The band decided to
phase out Death Piggy and commit to Gwar (the shortened name) full-time. They produced a number of EPs and albums, with their
most popular album being Scumdogs of the Universe that was released in the early 90s. The album helped the band solidify their
place in American heavy metal music and earn a record deal with Metal Blade Records. Today, the band continues to tour with
their outrageous live shows, and create new music for their loyal fans! Buy your Gwar tickets and find out why heavy metal
fans can't get enough of this out-of-the-box band!
