Phase one of the collection launched for pre-order earlier this month in England through a partnership with London’s legendary THREE AMIGOS SKATESHOP, the first retail shop in the world to release offerings from the line, in advance of GWAR’S recent June UK headline dates.

Launched in 2018, VOLATILE Skateboards has become the go-to brand for licensed artist skateboard decks and accessories, creating and manufacturing direct to consumer, retail, and touring skateboard decks and accessories through collaborations with Fear Factory, Helmet, Cro-Mags, Darkthrone, Plasmatics, Descendents, Subhumans, White Zombie, Morbid Angel,Dio, Nonpoint, Halestorm, Fishbone, Saliva, Alien Weaponry, Filter, Scatterbrain, Dangerous Toys, Nuclear Assault, Warrant, Dark Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Stone Temple Pilots, Venom, Death, and many more.


VOLATILE founder John Horn says, “When we started VOLATILE, it was just for the fun of making cool stuff with bands we like. 5 years, and hundreds of decks later, we are honored to collaborate with the mighty GWAR. It really doesn’t get much cooler than that. What the Hell do alien overlords want with skateboards? No fucking idea. We tried to ask Blothar, but he just grunted and screamed “BOW, HUMAN SCUM”. Still not exactly sure what he meant by that, but that sword is sharp.”


After the stabbing, Blothar the Berserker added “Me on a skateboard is like a bowling ball on a roller skate, but when I was a younger space alien overlord, I was King of the Darkslide. These boards and all this cool stuff makes me want to strap one on and break a hip!”

Story: Ralph Greco, Jr. Spacey blips flow into a synth-led danceable beat, with vocals making more music than they do an actual statement on the first tune of NYC-composer Chris Ianuzzi’s new double single. This tune, “Distant Suns,” keeps up with its blurring, plastic-pulling video-game sounds, and swirling vocals throughout its mid-tempo four-minute + mélange. […]
