You already knew that GWAR-B-Q was returning this year on August 20, 2016 at The National in Richmond, VA, and now the initial lineup of bands has been announced. It's pretty cool, with mall-metal giants Lamb of God, reinvigorated punks Against Me!, reunited melodic hardcore greats American Nightmare, NOLA sludge legends Eyehategod, and snotty pop punks Lagwagon.

Tickets will go on sale in June, stay tuned. Watch a commercial for the fest:
