Wednesday 13 Recruit Alice Cooper, Stone Sour, Lacuna Coil, Children Of Bodom, Etc. Members For New Album, Debut “Decompose”


Wednesday 13‘s new album has been christened “Necrophaze” and has been scheduled for a September 27th release through Nuclear Blast Records. In addition to sharing the details for the album, the band have also unveiled a brand new single, “Decompose“. Their frontman namesake commented of this latest track:

“The track ‘Decompose‘ is one of the first songs that was written for the new album, and one of the songs I was most excited about. Our drummer Kyle came up with the music, and once the band all got together, it took on a new life. With the addition of the eerie keyboard/piano pieces added in by Roy Mayorga (Stone Sour, HELLYEAH), this is another classic Wednesday 13 graveyard sing along.”

The group recorded “Necrophaze” with DevilDriver guitarist Mike Spreitzer taking on the production duties. Mayorga‘s aforementioned guest appearance isn’t the only one to grace the record though as the band have also tapped Alice Cooper, Lacuna Coil‘s Cristina Scabbia, Children Of Bodom‘s Alexi Laiho and Jeff Clayton of ANTiSEEN and GG Allin’s The Murder Junkies fame. Along with the guests, the album will also include a cover of W.A.S.P.‘s “Animal (Fuck Like A Beast)“.

Wednesday 13 had the following to say of the record itself:

“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. 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, tv 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‘.

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.”

Two different cover art variants have been created for the outing with the vinyl edition taking inspiration from John Carpenter‘s ‘The Fog‘ and the CD/digital edition being inspired by ‘Creepshow‘. You can find pre-orders for both now at this location.
