GWAR parts ways with female vocalist
photo property of REX USA/AMY Harris and Wondering SoundGWAR has announced the departure of Kim Dylla, who joined the band last year as Vulvatron. The band has issued the following statement:
GWAR, the world's premier shock rock band, today announced that Kim Dylla was released from the band directly following the fall 2014 GWAR Eternal Tour, and will no longer perform with the group. Dylla played the character of Vulvatron, a buxom Scumdog from the distant future, on the band's last national tour. The group garnered quite a bit of press when it was erroneously reported that Dylla, in the role of Vulvatron was the new lead singer for the band. Brent Purgason, slave of the recently defrosted intergalactic barbarian, Pustulus Maximus, had this to say; "Kim did a great job, but we wanted to go a different direction with the Vulvatron character. You will absolutely see more of Vulvatron in the future, just not portrayed by Kim. There is no ill will, no acrimony, and no drama. We respect Kim's talent without question, it just isn't what we needed in the character."UPDATE: If Dylla is to be believed, she suggested that she only found out about her dismissal today via the Internet. Here's what she had to say:
"It's really nice when you find out important things from people you consider to be your friends from posts on the internet and messages from strangers. There is something called basic respect not existing in that modus of communication. That being said, I'm currently looking for a new vocal gig with a serious metal band that likes to tour their asses off. Doesn't matter what style but no core b.s., no symphonic metal. Must be chill dudes and down with beer drinking hellraisers. Must not be threatened by strong women, no deep-seated drama. Location unimportant."
