Wednesday 13 Announces Fall 2016 Tour, Prepares to Enter Studio to Record New Album [Exclusive]
Things are heating up in the Wednesday 13 camp. The former Murderdolls frontman will embark on a tour in September, and prior to that he will be in the studio working on a new album.
The tour kicks off Sept. 8 in Spokane, Wash. One Eyed Doll will be along for the entire run, with The Things They Carried opening from Sept. 8 through Oct. 8. Gabriel and the Apocalypse will take over after that. After the tour wraps up Oct. 22, Wednesday 13 will play two shows in London celebrating the ten year anniversary of Fang Bang before returning to the U.S. for a Halloween show with Michale Graves in West Hollywood, Calif.
"I'm really excited for the upcoming U.S. tour," Wednesday 13 tells Loudwire. "We are hitting a lot of places that we haven't been in a while. This will also be our last tour on this album cycle before we take a short break and get ready for the new album and new tour next year. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone on the road to Halloween."
Before the touring gets underway, Wednesday 13 will enter the studio in August with producer Chris "Zeuss" Harris to work on the seventh Wednesday 13 album Condolences, the follow up to 2015's Monsters of the Universe. Zeuss also produced the 2010 Murderdolls album Women & Children Last.
"I can't tell you how excited we are to work with Zeuss again," Wednesday says. "We've been talking about it for years and now we're gonna finally make it happen. We had such a great time working with him on the Murderdolls album a while back. This will be our heaviest album to date and I can't wait to see what we come up with working alongside Zeuss."
Wednesday 13 will release the live DVD Almost Dead: LIVE later this year. It will feature live, acoustic, and backstage footage from the past few years' worth of touring in the U.K. and from the "Monsters of the Universe" tours in Europe.
