Fake blood, slime and make-believe decapitations of presidents and celebrities: This is what you can expect at a GWAR concert.

Oh, and they’re coming to The House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach on Nov. 2. Tickets start at $20.

The heavy metal band that’s made its name by performing in elaborate costumes has a history of spraying fake blood and other fluid over audience members.

The Virginia-based rock band performs as characters in their own mythological tale, playing “elite fighting characters” sent to conquer the planet earth.

The band released its first album, “Hell-o” in 1988. They have more than a dozen studio albums.

Their latest album, “The Blood of Gods,” was released in 2017. It’s the band’s first album since original frontman and founder David Brockie died following a heroin overdose in 2014.
