Wednesday 13, who mixes punk rock and metal with kitschy horror imagery and who is formerly one half of the MURDERDOLLS braintrust, has signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment. His seventh solo studio album, titled “Condolences”, will be released on June 2. The follow-up to 2015’s “Monsters Of The Universe” was produced by Chris “Zeuss” Harris, who previously worked with Wednesday 13 and guitarist Roman on the 2010 MURDERDOLLS album “Women & Children Last”.
Commented Wednesday 13: “We’re so excited to finally announce that we have signed with Nuclear Blast Entertainment! It’s an honor for us to be on the roster among so many other great bands and friends. Thanks to Nuclear Blast for giving us the opportunity and our fans for your undying support. We’re looking forward to many more years of this with all of you.”
Wednesday 13 will hit the road in the U.K. later this month with his “Undead, Unplugged” tour. The intimate evening features an extended set of acoustic versions taken from his extensive catalog, plus a wealth of tales regaled from years on the road with early projects MANIAC SPIDER TRASH and the FRANKENSTEIN DRAG QUEENS, through to the debauched heights of MURDERDOLLS and his lengthy current solo career. Support on the tour comes from his outlaw country side project BOURBON CROW, featuring Wednesday‘s longtime friend and singer/songwriter Rayen Belchere.
