MURDERDOLLS frontman Wednesday 13 is currently working on a few different projects to donate money to the people of Japan.
While on tour in Japan, Wednesday 13 and the rest of MURDERDOLLS experienced first-hand the magnitude-8.9 earthquake that rocked the country. It was the fifth most powerful earthquake recorded since 1900.
Commented Wednesday 13: "That was the scariest day of my life, without a doubt. It's almost beyond words to explain what we felt and witnessed.
"Japan is my favorite country to visit, tour and I’m just truly, truly saddened by this tragedy."
Wednesday 13 will put up five auctions for custom-made canvas prints (20" x 32"). Each canvas print will be hand-signed, numbered and will contain a songtitle on the back. Proceeds from these sales will go to Save The Children.
Save the Children, which has worked in Japan since 1986, has an immediate goal of $5 million to launch longer-term recovery for children affected by Japan's March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
Prior to the earthquake, Wednesday 13 was working on a special remix CD, "Re-animated". He has taken five songs from his "Skeletons" CD and given them a new life.
For the first month of release, Wednesday 13 will take a portion of all sales and donate to the American Red Cross. The American Red Cross is currently supporting and advising the Japanese Red Cross, which continues to assist the government in its response.
A digital release date for "Re-animated" will be announced shortly.
