“You're my last interview,” Wednesday 13, one of the world's principal proponents of horror punk, tells me. “I'm so excited!” And fair enough. As we speak, he and his band are five weeks into the US leg of their tour, followed by flights out to Australia, and then on to Europe.

With Wednesday 13's Melbourne show close to selling out, they have finally announced their support, Brisbane industrial band Darkc3ll.


Armed with “Soul crushing beats, powerhouse industrial grooves, topped with a layer of dirty rock'n'roll swagger” and having just released their debut album R3BOOT:R3P3AT earlier in the year, Darkc3ll will be joining the “undisputed leader in...

Wednesday 13, the moniker of Muderdolls frontman Joseph Poole, has announced an Australian tour this October.


After the hiatus of Muderdolls in 2004, it wasn't long before Poole released his first Wednesday 13 album, Transylvania 90210: Songs of Death, Dying, and the Dead in 2005. Seven years later and Wednesday 13 has released his fourth album Calling All Corpses and will now...
