Oderus Urungus Says GWAR Is Writing New Material; New Band Member Has Been Found?
- Posted by RobInjection on August 14, 2012
GWAR might be gearing up for their big GWAR-B-Q this weekend, but that doesn't mean they haven't been keeping busy. According to front-thing Oderus Urungus, the band has 14-16 songs written and will most likely keep 12 for the new album, and use the extras as bonuses for deluxe editions. He also teased that there is a "new Scumdog," presumably meaning a new member to the band, but that it wouldn't be revealed until the GWAR-B-Q. Here are all his tweets about the record in one, easy to read, paragraph:
“We are writing 14-16 songs for the new album…then we will keep the best 12 or so, then use the rest for imports and other stuff… This album is the hardest but most satisfying so far. To keep or even surpass what we achieved w Flattus is no easy task. Have never worked so hard on an album, and never in our own in-house Slave-Pit Studios. For Flattus. And you guys! There is a new Scumdog, song titles, lyrics, all kinds of stuff…but it will have to wait til’ this GWAR -B-Q!”
Certainly exciting to hear the least. I've heard some rumblings about what the band plan to do with their new album, and if it comes to fruition, it'll be huge.
