GWAR: Listen To ‘The Cutter’ Feat. HALESTORM’s LZZY HALE And Watch The Music Video For ‘Ratcatcher’

GWAR has released the official music video for the song "Ratcatcher" from their latest album, "The New Dark Ages", and have also unleashed the new song 'The Cutter' featuring Lzzy Hale from Halestorm.


GWAR has released the official music video for the song “Ratcatcher” from their latest album, “The New Dark Ages“, which arrives today (June 3) on CD and digital. You can also listen to the new song “The Cutter“, featuring HALESTORM frontwoman Lzzy Hale, off that very same album, below.

The New Dark Ages” will also be released on vinyl and cassette on September 16 via GWAR‘s own Pit Records.

GWAR vocalist Blöthar The Berserker states: “What better way to celebrate the end of human existence than a little reminder of your dark and violent past from the disease-ridden middle ages! ‘Ratcatcher‘ is the true story of the mysterious Pied Piper of Hamelin. HA! It was GWAR all along! This tune, and every single song on this album is red hot molten lead poured directly into your ears! GWAR is eternal!”

The New Dark Ages” chronicles GWAR‘s adventures in the Duoverse, where the band rediscovers old powers such as Blöthar‘s terrifying Berserker Mode, and encounter new allies, such as the murderous maven known as The Cutter. Along the way, they battle the living monuments of a lost cause and armies of undead soldiers who rise again to fight a new civil war.
