Iconic goth/horror-punk/rock band Wednesday 13 who will be releasing their 8th album, Necorphaze, on September 27th with Nuclear Blast.
The new record is their first to feature guests collaborators, which include Alice Cooper, Roy Mayorga (Stone Sour), Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom), Christina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil) and Jeff Clayton (GG Allin’s Murder Junkies). According to frontman Wednesday 13, the album is “the most elaborate, horror themed album” he’s ever released under his name, and channels “the atmosphere of early 80’s horror films, tv shows, cartoons and movie soundtracks.”
Wednesday 13 released the following statement: “To say we are excited about this release would be an understatement. We have re-built and Frakensteined an all new Wednesday 13. This is the next chapter, the next experience, the next phase into our world…Enter the NECROPHAZE.”
He continued, “This is the most elaborate, horror themed album I’ve ever released under the name Wednesday 13. Channeling the atmosphere of early ’80s horror films, shows, cartoons and movie soundtracks the Necrophaze was complete. To add a little more Blood to the party, we had the complete honor of having the Godfather of shock rock, the legendary Alice Cooper. Alice is a guest doing the introduction to the album and the title track “Necrophaze.”
The vocalist adds, “We wanted to give the listener the ultimate listening experience as if our band was the soundtrack to a horror film. The artwork for the CD and vinyl is a visual guide to the songs, and the live show will be the living breathing horror movie version. There will be a Wednesday 13 action figure, music Videos, movie soundtrack trailers, commercials and more all on the way with the release of Necrophaze. The artwork and packaging is a tribute to the classic art and packaging from my favorite time of the 1980s. So welcome to Party…but bring your own blood.”
Necrophaze will be released on Sept. 27. It is available for pre-order now here
