The New Dark Ages are upon us, which means it's time to tour for GWAR. The band latest album is quickly approaching and the band is ready to bring their brand of mayhem to the concert stage with a U.S. tour this spring, followed by a European trek this summer.

Dubbed "The Black Death Rager World Tour," the run will feature support from Crowbar, The Native Howl and Nekrogoblikon stateside. The tour kicks off May 19 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, with shows booked through June 17 in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Then taking some time to digest their spring feasting, GWAR will make their way to Europe for a run that kicks off July 29 in Tilburg, Netherlands and runs through Aug. 18 in London.

The Berserker Blothar exclaims, “Ah, the cruel spring, when life bursts forth and humans are reminded how dead they are inside! The horrific majesty of GWAR will blow through your town like painted ladies working the block for that rock.”

Check out the full itinerary for both tour legs below. Look for tickets to go on sale to fan club members this Thursday (March 3) with the general public on-sale starting a day later on March 4. Get your tickets here.

Meanwhile, fans can look for GWAR's The New Dark Ages arriving on CD and digital on June 3 and vinyl and cassette on Sept. 16. Head here to pre-order.
