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...

Wednesday 13 Post New Music Online

WEDNESDAY 13 has uploaded two new songs, "Not Another Teenage Anthem" and the title track, "Skeletons," from his upcoming CD to his MySpace page.

WEDNESDAY 13 recently announced that "Skeletons" will be available exclusively at Hot Topic.

Commented Jon Nelson, Wednesday 13's manager, "Once we decided to self-release Wednesday 13's upcoming music, the next step was to partner with a company that would be excited and support the release. Music retailers are closing their stores at a rapid place, or they are gauging the customers and jacking the prices up for a new release to $14-$17.99. There is no reason for that. We made one call to Hot Topic, and we are extremely excited about this relationship. Hot Topic will be the only brick-and-mortar store that will be stocking the CD. You will still be able to get the CD online and on tour." More...

Wednesday 13 Answers Vampire Freaks Questions

Former MURDERDOLLS frontman Wednesday 13 recently spoke to VampireFreaks.com about his solo career. The following is an excerpt from the interview:

Q: You've been in the music scene for a while now and you've got a huge fanbase. How long have you been performing music, and when, as well as where, did your career in music begin? What made you become a artist? Also, in what genre of music would you place yourself?

13: "I began learning guitar at age 13, ironically. I played my first live show at my high school at age 15 with some guys I knew from school. After seeing KISS and Alice Cooper and just the whole rebellion and imagery of that kinda rock n' roll I knew I had to do this. My musical style is all over the place and I leave that up to the listener. Some hear punk, some metal, some rock, maybe all together something different, I don't know..it's whatever you hear...give it a name. The image sometimes automatically assumes the goth thing but its way more and beyond that."

Q: Wednesday 13 has become pretty popular, most of it is fans that have followed you guys since the begginning. Do you think the size of it has grown, or stayed about the same since The Murderdolls?

13: "It's changed a lot over the years for sure. Some fans have stayed, some are long gone, but their are new ones popping up every year too. I feel like our status in the USA is growing way more than the Murderdolls, but I can only say that because Murderdolls did minimal touring in the USA."

As previously reported, Wednesday 13 recently announced the first tour dates of his upcoming All American Massacre tour. They are as follows:

February
7 - Phoenix, AZ - Cell Block
8 - Corona, CA - Showcase Theatre
13 - Los Angeles, CA - The Whisky A Go Go
14 - Sacramento, CA - The Boardwalk
17 - Seattle, WA - Studio Seven
20 - Colorado Springs, CO - The Black Sheep
21 - Denver, CO - Marquis Theatre
29 - Detroit, MI - The I-Rock Nightclub

More dates will be anounced soon.

Support bands on the tour include THE VINCENT BLACK SHADOW, THE AKA'S and CREATURE FEATURE.

Acey Slade Comments On Joining Wednesday 13

"I can't believe nobody got the hints! If you read my blogs, I think all of the last few I was listening to either Wednesday or Murderdolls and talking about playing 'old songs' ha,ha. I was talking to Jason, the other guitarist today about the songs, and I just know this All American Massacre tour is going to KILL (pun intended)!

I have always felt like Wednesday and I had some unfinished business to attend to and the timing couldn't be better! The stars lined up right for the first time in MONTHS! Wednesday has such a large catalog of songs and I'm very flattered to have the oppertunity to play them live. Shit, lot of people have never been able to see Wednesday and I on stage together. I feel like Christmas came early!"

Tour dates will be announced soon.

Former Murderdolls Guitarist Joins Wednesday 13

Former MUDERDOLLS frontman Wednesday 13 is gearing up for the All American Massacre U.S. tour starting in late January and running until the beginning of March. The trek will also include THE VINCENT BLACK SHADOWS, THE AKA'S and CREATURE FEATURE.

In other news, Wednesday 13 has announced that the band will remain a five-piece with the addition of ex-MURDERDOLLS/TRASHLIGHT VISION guitarist Acey Slade.

Commented Wednesday 13: "Once I realized I couldn't play guitar with my broken collar bone just before the October tour began I knew I really had to push the visual aspect of the show. I really went out of my way to try and bring the songs to life in a more visual way. It was fun to get inside these songs and act them out. The audiences all seemed to enjoy it as well and I was having a blast with it. I decided by the end of the tours that this is what I wanted to do by continuing making the live shows more theatrical and the only way to really do that was to remain a five-piece. The new ideas I have for the new years stage show are all over the place and I'm really excited for the new tour, and the fans to see it."

As previously reported, Horror High, LLC has set a February 5, 2008 U.S. release date for Wednesday 13's video project "Weirdo-A-Go-Go". This will be Horror High, LLC's first release to be distributed by Caroline/EMI.

"Weirdo-A-Go-Go" features the campy and morbid sense of humor that any fans of Wednesday 13 can expect. In the first two episodes, Wednesday 13 hosts clips and trailers of cheap horror flicks, along with performing schlocky but witty skits with his strange and wacky sidekicks. The program promises to resurrect the tradition of Saturday morning TV shows that Wednesday 13 grew up on — the random creations of Sid and Marty Krofft and Pee Wee's Playhouse mixed with the comedic approach of horror hosts Commander USA, Elvira, and Zacherely. The project was shot by Rafa of Core Entertainment, Inc. Rafa is most noted for the video and web site projects he has done for AVENGED SEVENFOLD, EVANESCENCE, ROB ZOMBIE, DISTURBED, STATIC-X and the Dimebag tribute bracelet.

WEDNESDAY 13 (ex-MURDERDOLLS) will release his already completed new album, "Skeletons", in March/April 2008. "We have been meeting with various record labels and want to make sure we find the right home," reads a posting on Wednesday's MySpace page. "We want to give the new record label as much time as needed to really set up the CD. This CD is very personal to W13 and he wants to make sure it gets the proper attention." Tentative songtitles set to appear on the album include "From Here to the Hearse", "Dead Carolina", "All American Massacre" and "Not Another Teenage Anthem".

Wednesday 13 Talks About New Album

Wednesday 13 (ex-MURDERDOLLS) has issued the following update on the recording process of his new solo CD, "Skeletons":

"Day 5 of recording the new CD, 'Skeletons', is complete and we are way ahead of schedule, with three songs completely finished. Racci [Shay, drums] and Nate [Manor, drums] came in to do drums and bass tracks this week and finished in just four days. I will be handling all rhythm and lead guitar duties for 'Skeletons'.

"This is a new experience in the world of Wednesday 13. This is the first time the band has actually played on the recordings. In the past I've only had the drummer come in and do his parts and then I record everything else.

"Working with the guys in the studio was a really cool experience, and I am shocked about how easy it has been going. I can't thank Racci and Nate enough!

"I don't think I have ever been so excited to hear the final product of anything that I have recorded!! This record is turning out to be the most diverse music I have ever recorded. It is still very much Wednesday 13, the humor and campiness is still there but a whole new bag of tricks will be unleashed on 'Skeletons'. It really feels like I'm creating a Frankenstein monster with this record, it's coming to life every day and it's just getting scarier!!! I really can't wait for all the fans to hear it!!!"

Tentative songtitles set to appear on "Skeletons" include "From Here to the Hearse", "Dead Carolina", "All American Massacre" and "Not Another Teenage Anthem".

Recording of "Skeletons" will be finished in mid-September, just in time for Wednesday 13 to go to Texas and do a week's worth of acoustic shows with his country project BOURBON CROW — with the final show being a pre-party for the REVEREND HORTON HEAT show in Houston, TX. After that Wednesday 13 will tour the U.S. for the month of October and then head overseas for his "Fan Appreciation" tour in November.

In other news, it looks like the final editing of Wednesday 13's video project "Weirdo-A-Go-Go" will be complete next week for a tentative February 2008 release. The show will feature the campy and morbid sense of humor that any fans of Wednesday 13 can expect.
