Former MURDERDOLLS frontman Wednesday 13 has revealed that the American horror punk band is in talks to reunite and record a new studio album.

In February 2010, while preparing to embark on a solo tour of Australia, Wednesday 13 spoke with The Drum Media (see article scan below), saying, "Right now, it's the worst week, and I keep getting asked that question, 'What are my future plans? The next step after this?' It's kind of hard to say. We're possibly going to do another WEDNESDAY record, record it in the summer and have it out around Halloween. Or the other option is... we're in talks right now to do another MURDERDOLLS album. So right now I don't know which of the two is going to happen. Of course, if MURDERDOLLS is possible, then we have to do that — it's gotta be the number one priority." He adds, "It's just talks right now. The whole MURDERDOLLS thing, it's the band that me and Joey [Jordison, SLIPKNOT drummer] put together, and right now we're having the same conversations that we were having in the very beginning of the band, 'What direction, what kind of music are we doing this time?' All the small talk stuff like that, so it's far away from getting in that room with the full band or something like that. Right now we're just trying to get a game plan together."

Formed in 2002, MURDERDOLLS released one album in the form of "Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls", which came out via Roadrunner Records. The band had limited initial success in the United States, though its album and singles charted well in the United Kingdom and around the same time the group picked up a strong following in Japan.

MURDERDOLLS' sound is made up of their shared influences, which include punk rock and 1970s hard rock acts such as KISS and ALICE COOPER. The band also shares an interest in horror movies, from which they take images and references.
