Gwar go “Berserker Mode” with the second preview of their new album

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on May 17, 2022

The accompanying visualizer features the first animated cells from the band’s upcoming graphic novel ‘GWAR In the Duoverse of Absurdity.’

With the start of their “Black Death Rager” World Tour set to kick off later this week, intergalactic horde GWAR have shared the second serving of their June 3rd full length in The New Dark Ages. “Berserker Mode” follows the successful launch of “Mother Fucking Liar” in previewing the band’s landmark 15th studio album.

Speaking of the new track, the band’s voice in Blóthar explained, “This is my origin story, about transforming into a drug-jacked unpredictable liability on the battlefield. But like me, it has a softer side, a tale of the struggle of becoming my authentic self…a sexy, multi-donged, vajazzzled, Viking cow beast known as…The Berserker Blóthar!!”

The release of the latest single from Gwar comes packaged with a dynamic visualizer that features the first animated art cells from the band’s forthcoming graphic novel, GWAR In the Duoverse of Absurdity. The companion release is a collaboration project with speciality publisher Z2 Comics and chronicles the exploits of our unlikely heroes in Gwar, as they face off against their evil dopplegangers in an alternate universe. The graphic novel arrives on same June 3rd date as the album, The New Dark Ages.

To properly support the album, GWAR is set to return to the road on The Black Death Rager World Tour. Kicking off Thursday May 19th in Ft. Wayne, IN and stretching through June 17th in Reading, PA.,  Gwar will be joined by Goatwhore, The Native Howl and Nekrogoblikon for the run of dates. In addition to their U.S. run, Gwar is confirmed to return to Europe this year for a string of festival appearances including Bloodstock and Wacken Open Air Festivals.
