Several songs into last night's (Thursday, January 27) MURDERDOLLS concert in Bordeaux, France, the band's guitarist, Joey Jordison (who also plays drums for SLIPKNOT and ROB ZOMBIE), suddenly threw his guitar towards the drum set and walked off stage (see video below). The rest of the group finished the track before leaving the stage. The full band came back five minutes later, with singer Wednesday 13 apologizing to the crowd for "technical problems." But after another couple of numbers, Joey walked off stage a second time. After the song ended, the rest of the band left the stage again. They came back five minutes later, this time without Joey, stating that he wouldn't be back on stage but that the rest of the band would finish the show, apologizing once again for "technical issues" and asking the crowd for understanding. They played a few more songs as a four-piece band before exiting the stage one final time, leaving the audience surprised and frustrated.
MURDERDOLLS recently canceld its "Violent Night, Deadly Night" U.S. tour "due to an unforeseeable family emergency."
The band's sophomore album, "Women And Children Last", sold 8,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 43 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on August 31, 2010 via Roadrunner Records, the CD was recorded at a studio in Hollywood Hills, California with producer Chris "Zeuss" Harris (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD).

* Wednesday 13 (WEDNESDAY 13, GUNFIRE 76, BOURBON CROW) - Lead Vocals
