Gwar has announced a reissue of their 2013 record Battle Maximus for September 1. The reissue is a tribute to both vocalist Dave “Oderus Urungus” Brockie and guitarist Cory “Flattus Maximus” Smoot, who passed away in 2014 and 2011 respectively. The reissue features a previously-unreleased bonus track “Tammy, Queen Of Dirt”, and you can check out a remixed and remastered version of “Falling” above.

“10 years after its initial release, the wounds are just as fresh,” said guitarist BälSäc, The Jaws ‘O Death. “The words that Oderus wrote as a tribute to his fallen Scumdog brother, Flattus Maximus, gain new meaning when heard as the final lyrics he would ever sing. The songs echo in stereo through the twin holes that were left in our hearts by the absence of Oderus and Flattus. This new remix of Battle Maximus breathes new life into this album that demands to be considered as one of Gwar‘s greatest.”

Battle Maximus is an important Gwar album,” added vocalist Berserker Blothar. “Recorded as a farewell to guitarist Flattus Maximus, this album was born out of straight pain. As the Scumdog warriors grieved the passing of their brother, they had no way of knowing they were also recording the last album with singer Oderus Urungus. Battle Maximus then, is on the cusp of the greatest challenge of Gwar‘s career. This version has been remixed and remastered and it sounds straight up viscous. I hope you relish it as much as I…”

Pre-orders for Battle Maximus are available here.
