Who doesn’t love GWAR, right? Now, everyone’s favorite heavy metal band has released The Disc With No Name, a four-track acoustic EP. It’s hard to imagine GWAR going acoustic, but they rock it on here.

“When Sleazy P. Martini suggested we do something ‘unplugged’ I was confused,” Blóthar the Berserker said in a statement. “It took me forever to get it plugged in the first place. Turns out he wanted us to record a few GWAR tunes, stripped down to chords, harmony and emotion. Now that I understand what’s going on, I’m thrilled with the project. I was finally able to release my inner Joni Mitchell. I swallowed her years ago, and she’s been living in my belly ever since.”

In addition to the new tunes, the band has also released its Ragnarök Rye signature whiskey.
