To keep you from going completely insane in quarantine, taxidermying your pets and loved ones, or developing an interest in stamp collecting, Gwar has announced a new monthly variety show they are calling Undead From Antarctica. The first episode will premier Sunday, August 16, 2020 at 9pm EST on their youtube channel.

Check out the trailer for Undead From Antarctica here:

The first episode of Undead From Antarctica will feature a special guest appearance from Lzzy Hale of Halestrom, as well as skits, laughs, goofs, a parasocial drinking session with JiZMak, in-depth lessons on the History of GWAR, and probably a couple of murders. I don’t actually know what to expect. No one does! Thankfully, the Gwar will be hosting an “afterparty” following the broadcast called Undead Live!, a live-cast where fans can pelt the band with questions and accusations in a vain attempt to make sense of it all.

Attempting to explain what’s going on, BalSac offers the following: “It’s like Saturday Night Live except it’s not on Saturday, it’s on Sunday, And it’s not live, it’s undead. And it’s not on TV, it’s on your computer or phone. And…it’s funny.” All of these statements are all probably partly true and probably partly false. Except for the part about being funnier than SNL. That’s most definitely accurate. It’s a low bar, but I think Gwar can clear it.

Undead From Antarctica will premier a new episode every second Sunday of the month, but if that’s not enough for you, they’ll be doing the Undead Live! thing every week. More details can be found here.

In other Gwar news, the band will be releasing a 30th anniversary version of Scumdogs of the Universe. The album will be available on CD, Double LP, Cassette and digital and is available for pre-order here.

That’s all I have. Beat it!
