GWAR Unleashes Remixed/Remastered Version of “Fly Now”

Listen HERE

Taken From the ‘Battle Maximus’ 10th Anniversary Edition Out September 1st on Pit Records

Order HERE

On Tour Now With Mudvayne & More!

Ten years have passed since the release of GWAR’s masterwork known as “Battle Maximus.” The record is a tribute to fallen Scumdog Warrior Flattus Maximus (AKA Corey Smoot) and was the last album recorded with vocalist Oderus Urungus (AKA Dave Brockie) before he departed the planet Earth in 2014. In celebration of this momentous occasion (and to line their pockets with filthy lucre) GWAR will release the 10th Anniversary Edition of ‘Battle Maximus,’ on September 1st via Pit Records. 

Today the remixed and remastered version of “Fly Now,” is available for streaming. 

Listen to “Fly Now” on YouTube HERE

In addition to being completely remixed and remastered, this edition features the final recorded vocal performance of Oderus Urungus on the previously unreleased and never-before heard song “Tammy, The Swine Queen.” 

Available as a double LP, CD and in digital formats, ‘Battle Maximus’ is set for release on September 1st via the band’s own Pit Records and is available for pre-order HERE.  

The double vinyl also features expanded packaging, redesigned art and an embossed cover. The standard LP is Crystal Blue with Dark Blue swirl vinyl, the Bandbox exclusive version is Stained Glass vinyl, Newbury Comics version is White with Blue swirl vinyl and Revolver Icons Series features multiple different colors all with NFTs to authenticate.
