Wednesday 13 has revealed the video for “What the Night Brings,” the first track taken from his forthcoming album, Condolences. The album will be released June 2 on his new record label home—Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

The track is now available at iTunes, Amazon and all good DSPs. Fans can pre-order Condolences in an array of digital and physical formats, including a few limited-run, colored vinyl versions, here.

“I’m really excited to unveil the new video for ‘What the Night Brings,’ the first track from our upcoming album, Condolences,” Wednesday 13 said“It kicks off our new album and really sets the tone for the rest of it. We worked on the video with director Matt Zane (Society One), and he really helped bring a spooky vibe. The song reminds me of a heavy metal version of ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ theme.” (more…)

After wrapping a North American fall headline tour, Wednesday 13 is ready to announce his extended plans for next year. He will embark on a winter 2017 acoustic tour. In addition to performing an entirely stripped down set, Wednesday 13, who is formerly one-half of the Murderdolls with Slipknot’s Joey Jordison, will share stories and engage in a Q&A session with fans during the show.

Bourbon Crow will provide direct support for the acoustic trek. (more…)

Wednesday 13, who mixes punk rock and metal with kitschy horror imagery and was one-half of the Murderdolls, is back on the scene and there is lots of activity taking place in his blood-spattered world.

Wednesday 13 will embark on a tour this fall, traversing the U.S. in September and October. One-Eyed Doll will serve as direct support for the entire tour. The Things They Carried will appear from Sept. 8 through Oct. 8, while Gabriel and the Apocalypse will join the tour from Oct. 9 through 22. (more…)

During the past decade and change, there may not be a musician—in any genre—more prolific than Wednesday 13. Whether in a band or as a solo artist, he’s seemingly always writing and releasing new music. Since 2002, he has released two Murderdolls albums; five solo albums, three EPs, a live album and an unplugged record; two outlaw country albums under the moniker Bourbon Crow; and an album with the glam-rock-influenced Gunfire 76. On my playlist (which probably is missing something), that’s more than 150 songs. And before all this, there were an EP and album with Maniac Spider Trash, and a five albums and six EPs with Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 (though many of those songs resurfaced on later releases). He’s branched out at times from his horror rock roots, but that always will be what he’s best known for, and there’s no better time to count down our top 13 Wednesday 13 songs than the spooky Halloween season.

Eight years after the Murderdolls’ debut album, Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls, Wednesday 13 and Joey Jordison, better known as the drummer for Slipknot and now Rob Zombie, are back with their sophomore effort, Women and Children Last. The songs this time come not from horror movies, but a darker, scarier, more personal place, and Roadrunner Records is so excited that it sent Wednesday out on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival to do nothing but meet fans and talk to press. Proper touring will start soon, with European dates with Guns N’ Roses and Ozzfest, and the opening slot on the Halloween Hootenanny Tour featuring Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper. At the Mayhem Festival’s stop in Bristow, Va., Greg Maki and Jeff Maki of Live Metal met up with Wednesday to talk about the new album and more. (more…)

Bassist, guitarist, songwriter, artist. Matt “Piggy D.” Montgomery is a man of many talents, and those skills led him in 2006 to becoming the bassist for Rob Zombie. With him on board, along with guitarist John 5 and Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison, Zombie now has arguably the best band he’s ever had behind him. After soldiering through the summer heat as a co-headliner of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival, Zombie and his band are looking to the special-edition release of Hellbilly Deluxe II in September and an October run, the Halloween Hootenanny Tour, with Alice Cooper. When the Mayhem Festival came to Bristow, Va., Greg Maki and Jeff Maki of Live Metal sat down with Piggy to discuss both versions of the latest album, the upcoming tour and more. (more…)

KISS, New York Dolls, The Stooges—probably not the first bands that come to mind when you hear horror-rocker Wednesday 13 (formerly of Murderdolls, now a solo artist). Those influences have always been there; they’ve just been hidden by ghouls, corpses and movie monsters. So, needing a change of pace, Wednesday stripped those trappings away for his latest project, Gunfire 76, a pure rock band whose debut album, Casualties & Tragedies, is a lot of fun from front to back.

Review by Greg Maki

It had been a while since I had encountered a gathering of goths like I did at the Recher Theatre this night. Then again, there weren’t too many of them, as the venue was only about half full (which wasn’t bad for a Monday night). All I could think about was how miserable these kids must have been outside in the 98-degree heat as they waited to get inside.

Due to personal scheduling issues, I missed the first band of the evening, Night Kills the Day. I arrived minutes before Fair to Midland took the stage. The band, which is signed to System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian’s Serjical Strike imprint, played a high-energy set hopping from genre to genre seemingly by the minute. Singer Darroh Sudderth was so manic that he seemed on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Keyboardist Matt Langley is the band’s strongest asset, bringing beauty to an often chaotic sound. (more…)

Wednesday 13’s Fang Bang is full of blood, murder, body parts and cadavers. And it’s one of the most flat-out fun albums of 2006. The sense of humor in song titles like “Morgue than Words,” “My Home Sweet Homicide,” “Happily Ever Cadaver,” “Til Death Do Us Party” and “Buried with Children” carries over to the entire disc. It appears Wednesday has never met a pun he didn’t want at his party. (more…)
