GWAR has unveiled a partial picture of their new guitarist Pustulus Maximus on Twitter. Check it out clicking on the embedded Tweet below.
Pustulus will be brought into the GWAR camp to replace the late guitarist Cory Smoot (aka Flattus Maximus), who was found dead in his bunk on the Gwar tour bus on November 3 last year. His cause of death was determined as being a coronary artery thrombosis, brought about by a pre-existing coronary artery disease.
The band posted a series of posts to Twitter prior to releasing Pustulus’ picture.
The first read: “Monster Day! 1st official photo shoot for our new guitarist, Pustulus Maximus.”
The tweets continued at fifteen minute intervals thereafter: “1st Official picture of Pustulus to be released here, in less than an hour!! Stay tuned!”
“Pustulus picture will be leaked here in 45 minutes!!”
“Less than half an hour until your first glimpse of GWAR’s new guitarist!!!!!!!!”
“Are you ready for the 1st official Pustulus Maximus?!?!”
“The very next tweet will be a photograph of Pustulus Maximus!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Finally, GWAR gave fans their first glimpse at the new guitarist: a picture of what appeared to be his toes.
“Here it is! Pustulus Maximus!!” the band teased.
