In a recent interview with SFWeekly.com, Wednesday 13 spoke about his current touring band. "This is like my favorite lineup that I've ever had, and I've definitely had members come and go for many different reasons over the years, and not all have," he said. "It kind of sucks because every time you get a different band member, it's way beyond crazy a lot of the guys that I've played with are guys that are front men of their own bands and they want to break up — which has been, I would say 90% of the cases with most of the guys I play with who no longer play with me anymore — to do their own thing. Right now, the longest-lasting member in our band who's still in the band now is Nate on bass. We have Jason on guitar, and Johnny on drums. We're back to a four-piece because I'm playing guitar again, 'cause my collarbone is healed from my accident last year. I had to give it up there for awhile. I had a car accident last September, flipped my car five times and broke my collarbone, so… we were always a four-piece and I always played guitar, but I had four solid months where I had all these tours booked, and I went on tour and it never healed up, so I had to have an extra member come and play guitar and I just had to be the frontman for awhile."
