ABOUT WEDNESDAY 13–
After Wednesday 13’s primary band the Murderdolls went on hiatus, he went on a solo tour of the United Kingdom in March 2004, called the “Graveyard A Go-Go” tour. For his live performances he was joined by members of Florida horror punk band Death Becomes You, though this was not meant to be permanent.
When Wednesday 13 returned to North Carolina in June 2004 he began to put together a more permanent band, with whom he would perform with under the Wednesday 13 name. He brought in a former Frankenstein Drag Queens member Ikky on guitar. The band took heavily influenced by the likes of KISS and Alice Cooper, while at the same time not straying far from the band members previous horror punk related projects. In September 2004 Ikky was replaced with Matt Montgomery also known as Piggy D.Together the Wednesday 13 band toured Europe in November 2004 on the “Look What The Bats Dragged In” tour, some of dated were supported by English rockers Viking Skull.
In 2005 after touring, they released their debut album “Transylvania 90210”, and made a promotional video for the track “I Walked With A Zombie”, the video depicted the band members in footage from the original Night of the Living Dead horror movie. Following the albums release the group embarked on a tour of the United Kingdom; “Tour from the Crypt”.
Also in 2005 they played on the main-stage of Download Festival at Donington, but perhaps the crowning moment for the group so far was when they opened some shows for their idol, Alice Cooper around Halloween.
Wednesday 13 parted ways with Roadrunner Records, before signing a new deal with Rykodisc, with whom he released Fang Bang, the follow-up to “Transylvania 90210”, on September 12th, 2006. The European version of the album contains a different bonus: a cover of Motörhead “R.A.M.O.N.E.S.” The Japanese edition features the same track listing as the European CD, along with an extra bonus song: “Good Day To Die”. A strange yet, totally truthful twist to this album is that all the songs are based on or inspired by horror movies.
Skeletons, the new album from Wednesday 13, was released on April 29, 2008, available exclusively through Hot Topic locations in the United States. It will be released in the UK on May 12, 2008 by DR2 Records a new subdivision of Demolition Records. Wednesday 13 states that this release has a darker & heavier tone to it than previous albums. The album was heavily promoted on the social networking site, Myspace.
Wednesday 13 has recorded a live CD/DVD entitled Fuck It, We’ll Do It Live during his show at Crocodile Rock in Allentown, Pennsylvania (tentative venue), due to his fan following in Pennsylvania.
