Murderdolls return for their first UK tour in over six years next month.
The duo of Slipknot’s Joey Jordison (guitar, drums) and Wednesday 13 (vocals, guitar) released their debut album, Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls, in 2002.
They headlined a 5,500 capacity crowd at Brixton Academy 18 months later and picked up the Best Newcomer award at the inaugural Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards.
Though Jordison has been busy with Slipknot duties, at the end of last year Murderdolls completed a three-week US amphitheatre tour, opening for Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper’s pyro-laden Halloween Hootenanny touring spectacular.
Now, frontman Wednesday 13 is excited about coming to the UK next week. He says: ‘I can’t wait to bring Murderdolls back for our first UK tour since 2003. The Death Valley Superstars are on their way!’
Jordison adds: ‘The UK is Murderdolls’ home and this tour is gonna top anything we’ve ever done there.’
The band’s first album in eight years, Women And Children Last, was released in August and scored 4/5 in Q magazine and The Sun and 8/10 in Metal Hammer.
Their God Save The Scream tour kicks off at the Pyramids in Southsea on Wednesday, with support from Black Veil Brides from 7.30pm.
Tickets cost £15 from 0844 871 8803, seetickets.com or on the door from 7pm.
