Wednesday 13 has announced that he is bringing back his and the late Joey Jordison‘s horror-punk band the Murderdolls for a North American tour later this year.

Wednesday and Jordison formed the Murderdolls in 2002, and while the band was active, they released two studio albums: 2002’s Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls and 2010’s Women and Children Last.

Last year, there was some controversy concerning the Murderdolls name, with Wednesday saying that the band’s name was “stolen” by ex-members of the band. However, per the horror-rocker, this upcoming tour is an “official” Murderdolls tour.

Per an Instagram post uploaded to Wednesday’s account, the following information is provided:

“When there’s no more room in Hell….The Duke of Spook, WEDNESDAY 13, has announced a fall 2023 US headline tour to celebrate 21 years of his former band, revered glam punk icons, Murderdolls. WEDNESDAY 13 and his current band – which features former Murderdolls alumni Roman Surman and Jack Tankersley – will perform a full set of Murderdolls songs, taken from the band’s celebrated 2002 debut album, Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls and their 2010 sophomore album, Women And Children Last, which won them the Revolver Golden Gods ‘Comeback Of The Year’ Award.

“WEDNESDAY 13 was the frontman and songwriter, alongside Murderdolls guitarist and his creative partner-in-crime, Joey Jordison, in the metallic glam punk outfit. The tour will begin on Friday, October 20 in Los Angeles, CA, and will visit a slew of major cities before ending in Colorado Springs, CO on December 9.”

In regard to this upcoming tour, Wednesday provides the following comment: “After 21 years since its release, and the recent sad and premature passing of Joey, it only feels right to go out and celebrate these songs. We made two amazing albums that I was very proud of, and unfortunately much of the world didn’t get a chance to hear the songs live. In 2018, we all got together at Joey’s house and discussed plans and possibilities for the future, but we both had other immediate plans. We will be performing tracks from both Murderdolls albums on this upcoming tour and celebrating the legacy of the band.”

For Murderdolls fans itching to see the band perform live again, this is going to be special. It’s melancholic too, considering Joey Joridson’s passing. But much like when he is touring on his own, Wednesday will celebrate the life of Jordison and share some heartwarming stories about his dear friend.
