WEDNESDAY 13 On MURDERDOLLS Reunion: 'I Don't Know Why We Can't Do It'

In a brand new interview with the "Talk Toomey" podcast, horror-punk stalwart Wednesday 13 once again spoke about the current status of MURDERDOLLS, his one-time project with former SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison. He said: "It's cool to know that that band's liked and still loved after all the years and it wasn't just a side project like everyone thought it was gonna be in the beginning. It's got a lot of fans, and over the years, man… I tour nine months out of the year, and I'm lucky, I get to go around the world and see people, and I see the MURDERDOLLS fans — I see tattoos, I see the shirts. It's still alive. So anytime that come up, and especially now that Joey's no longer in SLIPKNOT, everyone's, like, 'Well, why can't you guys do it?' And I ask the same thing: I don't know why we can't do it. So I'm hoping, in the future, once Joey and I get some spare time off from doing our new projects, with this [new WEDNESDAY 13] record ['Condolences'] and what he's got going on as well — I know he's busy — in a couple of years, if we can sit down and maybe do a MURDERDOLLS tour. It'd be cool to do that, and then if it does well, if we wanna do a record, we can talk from that point. There's no point, in my mind, why we can't do something on the side. And it would be like a side thing, because I'm focused on doing WEDNESDAY 13. I wouldn't wanna put that on the side for MURDERDOLLS. MURDERDOLLS could just be like a thing. Like when I saw the MISFITS do that reunion thing, I was, like, 'Wow! This is so cool. They should have done this a long time ago.' And it doesn't mean [Glenn] Danzig can't still do DANZIG. That's his priority, and he's making it his priority, and he does the MISFITS probably whenever he feels like it. That's how I would like MURDERDOLLS to be. I'm not comparing us to the MISFITS, but [I would like to see us] in that type of touring-type schedule. It would be cool to do that."

Wednesday 13 went on to say that he is pleased to see Jordison back on the music scene after stepping away from the spotlight for a couple of years after his split with SLIPKNOT. "Joey's always kind of been a recluse, so when he stayed out of the light there for a while, [after] the SLIPKNOT stuff [happened], which I understand that as well," the singer said. "Yeah, it's great to see him back out playing music and kicking ass on the drums. He's still one of the fucking best drummers in the world, and I had a great time playing with him. He and I, when we get together and write music, it's so much fun — it really is. We have a really, really good time doing that. So, yeah, I wish him the best and I hope that we can work out doing MURDERDOLLS sometime in the future. It would be fun to do that."

In a recent interview with, Joey, stated about the current status of MURDERDOLLS: "I cannot say anything bad about that band and what we accomplished with the MURDERDOLLS. Those tours we did are really awe-inspiring when you look in hindsight of what we accomplished in a short amount of time and the two records we did. I could not be more proud and happy of what we accomplished in that time. Everyone that was in that band, the couple of different personnels we employed, the MURDERDOLLS were killer. Like I said before, I don't know if I would do another record, but I won't rule it out."

Jordison — who played guitar for MURDERDOLLS — added that the band enabled him to express himself musically in a way that wasn't possible with SLIPKNOT.

"That is the thing, when we did 'Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls' [2002], I had already done four records with SLIPKNOT, two that were on the label and released," he said. "When we did the first MURDERDOLLS record, I have this punk rock and pop side of me that I don't really get to get out in other areas in my life. When we did that band, it was just pretty much to express fun, have a great time, and kind of throw a monkeywrench into what was going on in rock and metal at the time, and it worked. I would love to do another record. Like I said, I won't rule it out."

Wednesday 13 will release his seventh solo studio album, "Condolences", on June 2 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
