Warbeast are going on tour soon with Gwar, and need a bassist. So who do they call upon? Gwar’s former bassist.
That’ll be a little awkward.
I mean, no it won’t. Casey Orr left Gwar in 2011 on good terms and is said to be friendly with his ex-mutant comrades.
Orr’s also in Rigor Mortis, which is rad.
He will join Warbeast when the tour kicks off in Arizona in April.
Warbeast vocalist Bruce Corbitt says, “Obviously, we are all psyched to have Casey on board for this upcoming tour with Gwar and Wilson. I’ve always respected Casey’s professionalism, abilities and musicianship from our many years together in Rigor Mortis. This will be a natural and comfortable fit for Warbeast. Plus he’s still buds with all of the guys in Gwar, so this tour will be a blast… to say the least.”
Adds Orr: “I am very excited to accept the challenge of playing bass for the mighty Warbeast! I’m looking forward to crushing skulls with my brothers in the Beast, and I’m totally stoked to be bringing the thunder on the road this April, supporting my Scumdog family — Gwar. Texas thrash will destroy!”
