The Dwarves are back on the road and ready to destroy! They’ll be playing a bunch of shows in the US and UK, both as a full band as well as Blag acoustic solo shows.
The Dwarves remain one of the most bizarre and misunderstood bands of all time. Their latest release is a solo effort from masked guitarist HeWhoCanNotBeNamed entitled Sunday School Massacre. The project, engineered and co-produced by Bradley Cook (Counting Crows, Foo Fighters), features many former Dwarves members like Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens of The Stone Age & The Dwarves), Blag Dahlia (The Dwarves, Candy Now), Andy Selway (KMFDM & The Spittin’ Cobras, The Dwarves) and more.
HeWhoCanNotBeNamed will of course be joining the Dwarves they rampage through three months of shows in the US, UK, and Norway:

The band was recently molded into a throbblehead produced by punk collectibles company AGGRONAUTIX. The special edition figure depicts Blag the Ripper and HeWhoCanNotBeNamed dominating the stage.
The figure, limited to 1000 numbered units, stands at 5 1/2 inches tall and is made of a lightweight polyresin. Displayed in a tri-windowed box, here the Dwarves are accurately sculpted right down to the lucha libre mask, bondage wear, and skull boner buckle!
