The Duke of Spook, WEDNESDAY 13 has premiered a new video clip for ‘Cruel To You’, another new track taken from his forthcoming album, ‘Condolences’ which is set for release on 2nd June via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Check out the clip here –
Wednesday tells us “I’m really excited for everyone to see our new video for ‘Cruel To You’. Making this one turned out to be so much fun and director Tommy Jones made my comic book dream come to life. Running around sunny Los Angeles chasing a girl and her dog with an axe was certainly a first for me, haha! This song and video is definitely a throw back to the more fun, campy side of Wednesday 13.”
‘Cruel To You’ is now available for download at iTunes, Amazon and all good DSPs and pre-orders for the ‘Condolences’ album are also ready to be snapped up. The release is available in an array of different digital and physical formats, including a number of limited run coloured gatefold double vinyl editions and signed editions. Check out the pre-order options at http://nblast.de/W13Condolences.
The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Chris ‘Zeuss’ Harris (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed) and the sleeve artwork was created by Travis Smith (Opeth, Katatonia).
WEDNESDAY 13 is also confirmed to headline the Dogtooth Stage at Download Festival on Saturday 10th June with his full electric set, as well as two additional shows in Dublin (Thu 8th Jun at Voodoo Lounge) and Belfast (Fri 9th June at Limelight 2). Download tickets are available from http://downloadfestival.co.uk/tickets and Irish tickets from www.ticketmaster.ie.
I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
