Fans of the music of Wednesday 13 will be “Happily Ever Cadaver” at the notion about the Groovy Ghoulie’s signing to Nuclear Blast Entertainment. We’re big fans of the Horror Punk Rocker and have been covering his misadventures for years. Check out the full press release below.
The Press Release:
WEDNESDAY 13 has signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment and is set to release his eighth solo studio album, titled Condolences, on 2nd June 2017. The horror punk kingpin and former-MURDERDOLLS frontman is thrilled to be joining his new record label home, telling us, “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.

WEDNESDAY 13 will embark on a tour of the UK 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 more recently, his lengthy current solo career.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Like I said up above in my intro to this news, I’m a fan and I’ve been one since first hearing the album “Fang Bang” which was his second solo album. From this one I went backwards to listen to his first and then to examine some of the Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 stuff and yeah even Murderdolls. It’s a lot of fun this stuff and his shows are always a blast. Sometimes they are a spectacle with many different happenings and more tongue in cheek while at others there is more of a serious tone to them. Whatever you catch from this musician will entertain you so I am going to be more and more excited as his new album gets ready to arrive and the power of one of my favorite labels shows just what it can do for him. What do you readers think of this little bit of music industry news? Are you a fan of Wednesday 13 at all? Will you give him a chance now based on this information? Let me know down in the comments section and if you want to see some old coverage of W13 and his macabre mates just click THIS LINK for a rundown of the stuff he is tagged in. See you soon.
