The singer also revealed his intentions for the album in an October interview with John Parks of Legendary Rock Interviews, addressing its sound in comparison to past works, as well as the band’s recovery following the death of their longtime guitarist.

As for the album, I think it’s a heavy album, a metal album. I think it goes back to all different elements of the band. Is it a complete return to songs like ‘Fish Fuck’ or ‘Fucking An Animal’? No. Does it have some of that same sense of humor? Yes. Does it rip as a metal record? Yes. Most definitely. Is it afraid to be silly? No. Does it tell a story? Yes. Do I think GWAR fans are gonna love it? Yeah, because I think it’s the best album we’ve ever written. That’s what we set out to do, and that’s the only thing you can do after going through a tragedy like losing a guitar player, a friend, a guy who was that important to your music. It’s do-or-die time with this band and that will be what happens with the next GWAR album. GWAR will always live forever, but will GWAR always put out metal albums? A lot of that will be decided when we see how people react to our new record.
