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 honour 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. We’re looking forward to many more years of this with all of you.”
WEDNESDAY returns to UK shores later this month with his ‘Undead, Unplugged’ tour. The intimate evening features an extended set of acoustic versions taken from his extensive catalogue, 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. Support on the tour comes from his outlaw country side-project, BOURBON CROW – featuring Wednesday’s longtime friend and singer/songwriter Rayen Belchere – and will be the very first time BOURBON CROW have ever played UK shows.
WEDNESDAY continues, “I’m excited to bring my ‘Undead, Unplugged’ show back to the UK, as this is where it all started! Not only is it my acoustic show, this time around, it will feature a set from my side project, Bourbon Crow. These shows are like a story tellers set, plus we have a Q&A with the audience and a long list of songs from over the past two decades. These shows are always so personal and intimate with the fans, so I can’t wait!”
