Gwar have introduced two members that will join them on the Eternal Tour this fall in search for Oderus Urungus. They are two different vocalists: Blóthar and Vulvatron. Blóthar; a fat, filthy, frozen space Viking, will take over as Gwar's lead vocalist. The role of the red-hot cybernetic spitfire known as Vulvatron is more mysterious. Both will feature prominently in the anticipated Eternal Tour, their first without charismatic founding member and lead singer Dave Brockie, who passed away in March.
