Casey Orr, better known to most by his stage name of Beefcake the Mighty, has joined Warbeast on their upcoming "Fate or Chaos Tour" with Orr's former band, GWAR. Warbeast recently put out a split entitled "War of the Gargantuas" with Phil Anselmo's new project, Philip H. Anselmo and the Illegals.
Warbeast vocalist Bruce Corbitt said of the announcement: "Obviously we are all psyched to have Casey on board for this upcoming tour with GWAR. I’ve always respected Casey’s professionalism, abilities and musicianship from our many years together in Rigor Mortis. This will be a natural and comfortable fit for Warbeast. Plus he’s still buds with all of the guys in GWAR, so this tour will be a blast… to say the least."
Orr also added, "I am very excited to accept the challenge of playing bass for the mighty Warbeast! I'm looking forward to crushing skulls with my brothers in the Beast, and I'm totally stoked to be bringing the thunder on the road this April, supporting my Scumdog family – GWAR. Texas thrash will destroy!"
