Gwar Rocks On

12:01 PM Friday 11/18/11 | |

The metal maniacs say they will move forward on their 2012 European tour plans despite the recent death of one of their members.

Cory Smoot, aka Flattus Maximus, was discovered dead on Nov. 3 as the band was preparing to tour Canada. Although Gwar has since retired the Flattus Maximus character, the band continued on its trek in honor of its fallen comrade, calling for Gwar fans to celebrate Smoot’s legacy.

“When Cory died, we all wanted to go home and take care of the family and our own grief,” Gwar spokesman Dave Brockie (Oderus Urungus) said in a statement. “But the best way to do that is by playing all the shows we have planned. The response from the U.S. metal community and especially the whole international Gwar family has been overwhelmingly supportive … these Gwar fans need the chance to pay their respects to Cory, and canceling any shows would deprive them of that.”

Meanwhile, the band says it will continue as a four-piece.

Smoot’s family, along with Gwar and Metal Blade Records, have created the “Smoot Family Fund.” Click here to find out how you can help.

The Euro tour begins in Antwerp, Belgium, at Trix Jan. 11. Other destinations include London at the Electric Ballroom Jan. 13; Belfast, Northern Ireland, at Spring & Airbrake Jan. 16; Dublin, Ireland, at Button Factory Jan. 17; Reading, England, at Sub 89 Jan. 22; Copenhagen at the Rock Jan. 27; Oslo, Norway, at Rockefeller Jan. 29 and Stockholm, Sweden, at Klubben Jan. 30.
