More Bands Confirmed For Soundwave Festival 2012

Although it wasn't expected until December, the organizers of Australia's Soundwave Festival have made their second band announcement. Joining the 60 bands already announced are Staind, Wednesday 13, Unearth, Cathedral, Shadows Fall, Heaven Shall Burn, Your Demise, Kittie, and 14 other (mostly non-metal) bands.

Hole has pulled out of the festival after frontwoman Courtney Love refused to play before Limp Bizkit. Soundwave boss AJ Maddah said on Twitter that he was "relieved we got the moody old cow off the bill. [There’s] no point talking her back, only for her to cancel later, or turn up & act like a rotten twat to other artists, fans, etc."

A third announcement in early December will add another five bands to the lineup, and Danzig is one of the confirmed possibilities. More...

Wednesday 13 Announce U.S. Tour Dates

WEDNESDAY 13 has issued the following update:

"Ghouls Scouts, fans and friends,

As the release day for Skeletons gets closer (April 29th), I can't tell you how excited I am. This is the first project in a long time that I have had 100% complete control over.
Every penny from this project has come from my pockets. I could have signed a record deal and received an advance and had a lot of the marketing, advertising, radio, video budgets all provided to me. But really, that is just like a loan you take from the bank and I give up a lot of rights to the songs.

As I have stated recently, this release, Skeletons, is very personal. It deals with my alcoholism, depression and state of minds for the past few years. You guys see one side of me, but there is also the family side, the friend side, and the side that, like all of you, gets lost some times.

I want to take this time to thank Hot Topic and Interpunk for truly getting out there and supporting our efforts.
I would also like to thank my friends LisaJean and Marlene for all their help on the packaging.

As the release date approaches, I know it's easy to go and illegally download this music. Please understand, that if you are a fan of the band and you want to see us live, by illegally downloading the music, you will literally be taking money from our pockets. There is no record label backing me.

Thanks for your support throughout the years,
Wednesday 13" More...
