Yet another must-see metal tour has just been announced. Intergalactic metalmongers GWAR have just announced a handful of North American tour dates with Hatebreed and crossover thrash act Iron Reagan, which boasts members of Municipal Waste and Cannabis Corpse.

GWAR are one of metal's hardest touring bands, lugging with them a ridiculous amount of props, celebrities to dismember onstage and other alien beings kept in cages until showtime. If you've never experienced GWAR in person, you're missing out on an essential piece of your existence. Luckily for the not-yet-converted, the alien beasts may be stopping by your town. "GWAR and Hatebreed together is really gonna f--- some people up," rightfully states GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus.

Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta offered a more lengthy comment on the summer tour, which Hatebreed will join about halfway through the upcoming trek. "We're extremely happy to finally hook up some GWAR/Hatebreed dates after years of trying to get our schedules to connect! We'll have spent this entire summer rocking stages in Europe so it will be great to get back to the good ole USA, to get down and dirty in the clubs with our favorite mutants from Antarctica. These gigs are not to be missed!"
