Wednesday 13 has announced that his new album “Necrophaze” will be released on September 27. You can check out the effort’s first single “Decompose” below:
Wednesday 13 said the following about the new song:
“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.”
“Necrophaze” was recorded with producer Mike Spreitzer (DevilDriver) and in addition to Mayorga, it also features guest appearances from Alice Cooper, Lacuna Coil‘s Cristina Scabbia, Children Of Bodom‘s Alexi Laiho, and ANTiSEEN’s Jeff Clayton. Wednesday 13 said the following about the record:
“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.”
The album will feature two different cover arts including one inspired by John Carpenter‘s “The Fog” for the vinyl version and one inspired by “Creepshow” for the CD/digital versions.
