Happy Halloween! I know that I’ve already said that but now it’s time for the treats instead of the tricks as Horror Punk Rocker Wednesday 13 has announced his “Undead Unplugged” Tour and it’s a great way to differently enjoy this groovy ghoulie’s material. Check out the full press release and the dates below, then I will close it out with some additional thoughts.
The Press Release:
WEDNESDAY 13 ANNOUNCES WINTER 2017 ACOUSTIC TOUR – NEW ALBUM DUE OUT IN NEXT YEAR – Attention ghouls and creepy crawlers. Horror rocker Wednesday 13 has an important Halloween announcement.
After wrapping a successful North American fall headline tour, Wednesday 13 is ready to announce his extended plans for next year. He will embark on a unique, 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. It’s a truly intimate experience.
Wednesday 13’s acoustic gigs have been well-received by his fans overseas and the same excitement is anticipated in the U.S. Bourbon Crow will provide direct support for the acoustic trek.
“I’m super excited to bring my undead unplugged shows to America, as they have been really great in the UK,” said Wednesday 13. “Not only is it my unplugged show, it will feature a set from my side project Bourbon Crow. These shows are like a ‘Storytellers’ set, plus Q &A with the audience. It’s a very different show from my normal full band performances and I and wait for the tour in January.”
In addition to the Winter 2017 acoustic tour, Wednesday 13 plans to release his seventh solo effort Condolences, produced by Chris “Zeuss” Harris. Additionally, Deen Castronovo, formerly of Journey, laid drums on a few tracks. Condolences is the follow up to 2015’s Monsters of the Universe.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll make no bones about it LOL, I’m a big fan of the creeptastic musical offerings of Mr. 13 and I’ve wanted to hear his acoustic stuff done in the flesh for a while now. That makes me excited about the tour because it also features a Bourbon Crow appearance which should raise the level of interesting for sure. The intimate setting of The Studio at Webster Hall will be perfect for this kind of acoustic music and storytelling and keep fans busy with their Instagram and Facebook Live feeds or Snapchatting. What do you readers think of this one? Let me know in the comments section and once again “Happy Halloween”. Now go out and get some treats and send some to the Metal Command HQ. I’ll see you next time and before you head off to another website, please give some kudos to the “FANG BANG” Music Milestone that was noted on THIS LINK.
