Wednesday 13 will release his first-ever live CD/DVD on October 21, 2008 entitled "F**k It, We'll Do It Live". This release will be sold exclusively through Interpunk.com and select Hot Topic music stores. The CD portion will not be available on iTunes.
Commented Wednesday: "This is the first time I have released a full live concert performance. My main concern was to release the live DVD portion, but we felt like we wanted to give the fans more for their money. We feel like the audio portion of the package is the extra bonus to those who purchase the DVD. We also have included a 20-panel booklet with this release. Most of the photos used in the booklet are live shots taken by the fans. This release is for the fans and we want them to feel like they are part of everything we do."
Wednesday 13 recently returned home from Los Angeles where he was researching some studios for his next recordings. He said, "I have been going non-stop for the past few years and there is still so much more I want to do. This December I will return to the studio to work on two projects. There probably won't be a new Wednesday 13 full-length released until winter 2009, but that doesn't mean I won't be working the entire time. We are constructing some cool ideas for March tours and hopefully everything will fall into place."
The first video teaser for "F**k It, We'll Do It Live" can be viewed below. The disc was recorded on July 18, 2008 at the Crocodile Rock in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Commented Wednesday: "First off, let me say this is a live recording. This is not a live recording where we went back into the studio and overdubbed guitar parts or vocals. This is us… LIVE! If we make a mistake, you will hear it. If my voice cracks, you hear it. This is as close to a live experience as we could give."
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."
