Gwar have confirmed that Kim Dylla, aka Vulvatron, will replace the late Oderus Urungus as lead singer of the band.
Urungus, better known as Dave Brockie died of a heroin overdose in March of this year (2014). In August, he was given a traditional viking send-off involving his stage costume being set on fire.
New singer Vulvatron will join vocalist Blöthar in fronting the band. She joins Gwar from her regualr band, Kung Fu Dykes. She previously performed with the band at the group’s annual Gwar-BQ event in 2013.
Known for their outrageous costumes and prosthetics, Gwar released their 13th album in 2013 and mark their 30th anniversary this year. According to Gwar’s “mythology”, Oderus Urungus was 43 billion years old, and was assembled on a planet called Scumdogia. He wielded a sword called Unt Lick. The latest chapter of the band’s mythology dictates that Vulvatron and Blöthar will lead a quest together for the departed Oderus Urungus.
