GWAR Might Be Continuing Without Oderus Urungus, Confirm Performance at Riot Fest 2014
The recent announcement of this year's Riot Fest lineup had the metal world taken by surprise, as the bill featured none-other than GWAR, the band whose leader Dave Brockie, a.k.a. Oderus Urungus, has sadly passed away in March.

AsĀ Metal Sucks reports, the announcement was not an error, with a band representative stating that "Riot Fest is keeping GWAR's spot warm for them and something will happen."

Several options are open here, one of them even being the band venturing on without Brockie, although such option seems a bit unlikely. A fitting tribute with a guest vocalist would be a nice gesture though, so stick around for more details.

As far as the event itself goes, the bill consists of several class acts such as the Cure, Slayer, Wu-Tang Clan, Jane's Addiction, the Offspring and more. Check out the full lineup and ticket info here.
