VIA: Bravewords.com

WEDNESDAY 13 will be bringing his gore-filled, ghoul-fest, sleazy live shows to Australia in October just in time for Halloween.

A press release describes Wednesday 13: “A grimly glamorous ghoul who first slithered from the cobwebbed shadows of Charlotte, North Carolina, Wednesday 13 has established himself as the world’s premier purveyor of balls-out horror punk insanity. With a vivid and vile imagination that has endeared him to countless fans of riff-driven macabre over the last two decades, he has been one of rock’s most prolific protagonists, spreading his credo of grave-robbing rock ‘n’ roll and Halloween debauchery around the globe and unleashing a seemingly endless stream of blood-spattered albums and EPs.” Continue reading WEDNESDAY 13 Announces Australian Tour

In a recent interview with Metalkrant, Wednesday 13 stated about “The Dixie Dead”: “I think it’s the best CD I have ever made. It’s a great combination of everything I have done over the years. It’s heavy, it’s still catchy and singalong songs, it’s a full horror record.”

He continued: “The album is going to look like a 1980s horror movie. It’s a special way we did it. I’m more excited about that than everything I can remember that I put out. We have some different sounds, too, that we’ve tried. There’s some really heavy stuff. Heavy for me — I don’t mean like SLAYER heavy. [laughs] But for me, it’s heavy. There’s a track on the record that reminds me of BLACK SABBATH and there’s one that reminds me of MINISTRY and METALLICA. There are a lot of influences in there and it showcases my lineup that I have now. I didn’t play anything on the record, but vocals and keyboards. It’s the first time I haven’t played guitar on a record. I wrote everything, but I let the band play it. So to me, that definitely added something to it. I think I have a great band and my guitar player is amazing. The things he does and what he brought to the table… It’s the perfect record for me. I feel like it’s taken me 10 years to… Not that I didn’t like what I did before, but I feel like this is finally the one that we got where I wanted it to be. I’m super excited and I hope people will embrace it the same way.”

2013 is a special year for Wednesday 13 as it marks 20 years of him releasing recorded music and 10 years of the band WEDNESDAY 13.
