GWAR 16 - Dillinger Escape Plan PHOTO

We are just over five weeks away from the wildest party of the summer, the one and only GWAR B-Q in Richmond, VA at Hadad’s Lake on August 20th!  It has already been announced that GWAR, LAMB OF GOD, AGAINST ME!, AUGUST BURNS RED, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, EYEHATEGOD, LAGWAGON, MURPHY’S LAW, BRAIN TENTACLES, MOBILE DEATHCAMP, OCCULTIST, SAWYER FAMILY, and THE DEATH OF ROCK AND ROLL will devastate and earfuck everyone at the event.


Today we are pleased as piss in your mouth to announce the addition of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN to the GWAR B-Q!!! THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN are known for their unyielding, experimental, and brutal sound that will punish the GWAR B-Q and devastate Richmond with full force!


DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN Guitarist Ben Weinman commented on playing the GWAR B-Q: “In honor of the legendary Oderus Urungus, we are proud to take part in this year’s GWAR B-Q. After all, any band who sings songs about killing hippies and Skinheads while simultaneously condemning war and shooting many gallons of blood on the crowd are friends of ours!”


With THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN added to the bill, this is proving to be one of the sickest GWAR B-Q lineups to date. So, what the FUCK are you waiting for? BUY or DIE!
