WarbeastÂ has announced that Casey Orr (Rigor Mortis,Â GWAR) will join them as their fill-in bassist while on the road this spring withÂ GWAR! The bandâ€™s upcoming tour dates withÂ GWARÂ andÂ WilsonÂ kick off in Tucson, AZ on April 10th. The 16 day run, dubbed the â€śFate or Chaos Tourâ€ť, will continue through the month of April until it closes in Jacksonville, FL on April 25th.
WarbeastÂ vocalist Bruce Corbitt states, â€śObviously we are all psyched to have Casey on board for this upcoming tour withÂ GWAR andÂ Wilson. Iâ€™ve always respected Caseyâ€™s professionalism, abilities and musicianship from our many years together inÂ Rigor Mortis,â€ť â€śThis will be a natural and comfortable fit forÂ Warbeast.Â Plus heâ€™s still buds with all of the guys inÂ GWAR, so this tour will be a blastâ€¦ to say the least.
â€śI am very excited to accept the challenge of playing bass for the mightyÂ 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 â€“Â GWAR,â€ť adds Casey Orr. â€śTexas Thrash will Destroy!â€ť
â€śThis by far will be the most solid lineup to date with Casey Orr joining us for this tour.Â Iâ€™ve known him all of my life and it just seems right,â€ť addsÂ WarbeastÂ guitarist Scott Shelby. â€śCasey is hyped as well, as is the whole band to move on to this new era and continue to Destroy!â€ť
â€śIâ€™m looking forward to the rhythm section being tighter than ever,â€ť statesÂ WarbeastÂ drummer Joey Gonzalez. â€śI know Casey will be killer to learn from and jam with.Â â€ś
