This past May, DeMaio said that MANOWAR was “not retiring,” despite the fact that it announced its “final” tour more than three years ago. ” I’m too young to retire,” he told Bulgaria’s Z Rock Radio. I’m like Peter Pan — I’m a boy in a man’s body. I’m, like, 15 years old in my mind.”

Back in May 2016, MANOWAR revealed that it would say “thank you”, “farewell” and “goodbye” to its fans on a world tour that would be “bigger and beyond anything” the group had ever done.

MANOWAR released a new EP, “The Final Battle I”, in March. Parts II and III of the trilogy will arrive at a later date, inspired by MANOWAR‘s adventures on the remainder of “The Final Battle”.
