GWAR documentary This is GWAR, directed by Scott Barber, was acquired by horror streaming service Shudder, and will premiere on July 21. It tells the whole GWAR story, and here's the official synopsis:

The powerful story of the most iconic heavy metal/art collective/monster band in the universe, as told by the humans who have fought to keep it alive for over thirty years. The feature documentary includes interviews with members of GWAR, both past and present, as well as other artists including Weird Al Yankovic, Thomas Lennon, Alex Winter, Bam Margera, and Ethan Embry, also including never before seen footage of legendary GWAR frontman Dave Brockie.

You can watch the This is GWAR trailer below. The film will also be screening in cities around the country this month, including NYC screenings at Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn today (7/15) and July 18 and Alamo Drafthouse Lower Manhattan today and July 18. The 7/18 screenings at both Alamo locations have GWAR in person for a post-screening Q&A. All screening dates are listed below and more info is at GWAR's site

Meanwhile, GWAR have announced fall tour dates including a NYC show at Irving Plaza on Halloween. Tickets for that show go on sale today at noon. All dates are listed below.
