Dope Announces “Die Mother F**ker Die” Reunion Tour

Hey there readers so between the contests and the other “Milestone” pieces coming down the pike here at PM.com, I thought you might be interested in the latest dope (hahahaha) on the band Dope. They posted this the other day about a reunion tour that is labelled as the “Die Mother Fucker Die” tour (such language – I feel like Captain America by saying that….watch “Avengers Age Of Ultron” to know the inside line). Anyway so below the poster you will find some press copy from the bands Facebook and words from Mr. Edsel Dope himself. Then there are a lot of show dates to firm up in your event planner if you ever followed these guys. Dig in.

“Skeletons” by Wednesday 13

Artist: Wednesday 13
Title: “Skeletons”
Label: Independent Artist
Release Date: 4/29/2008
Genre: Horror Punk
Rating: 3.5/5

As soon as you begin spinning “Skeletons”, the third album by Horror Punker Wednesday 13, you will realize that the effort is far heavier than “Fang Bang” and more along the lines of his work as one of The Murderdolls. That’s not a bad thing at all since that stuff was rather good but when he morphed its morbid style deeper into his love of zombies and other things that go bump in the night the end result was quite interesting. “Skeletons” comes across as the singers most personal album to date as well and instead of dealing with movie monsters and grave robbing transvestites he deals with his own personal demons and matters that vividly bring to the front his own bout with depression. It opens up with “Scream Baby Scream” and he welcomes us to creature feature number thirteen – the track is the perfect intro music for the dark ride into his psychotic psyche and seems to line out quite a bit about his identity and raison d’etre. “Not Another Teenage Anthem” is more along the lines of stuff we got from “Fang Bang” and I rather enjoyed it since he was letting the listener know that this was apparently not your typical walk in the dark alley that he always managed to guide us through in relative safety. He did the same with “From Here To The Hearse” as it is loaded with the twisted display of love gone horribly wrong and a perfectly typical W13 twisted bit of wordplay. The album’s title track “Skeletons” really seems to open the closet doors on Wednesday’s inner being quite a bit as he sings about talking to them and how they are continually exposing his darkest secrets. His line about “the only thing that is real is the feeling that he doesn’t feel” is rather deep and showcases this as perhaps his most biographical track to date.

Wednesday 13 @ Club Europa (10/11/2007)

I’ve enjoyed Wednesday 13’s music since I first heard the album “Fang Bang” and after catching him as an opener for Alice Cooper I was excited to find him doing a gig in Brooklyn. That night I took a trek down to the old neighborhood of Greenpoint to see what was brewing at Europa and would find W13 and his crew performing with Anti-Product as openers.

Artist: Wednesday 13
Venue: Club Europa (Brooklyn, NY)
Opener: Anti-Product, Creature Feature
Date: 10/11/2007
Label: Ryko Records

It was a dark and stormy night when Wednesday 13 brought his “Ghouls On Parade” tour into New York City for a visit, and if you knew what was bad for you there would be no avoiding this devilishly good time. The scene of the crime would be Greenpoint Brooklyn’s Club Europa which as I approached I had realized was formerly the location of a Chinese restaurant that I used to go to with family in my younger years. As a club I admit that it is quite cool looking on the inside and has a decent bar downstairs to hang out in before you hit the venue itself which is on the second floor. The upstairs area offers a small but comfortable stage, several lounge areas and a decent dance floor where the crowd can convene to enjoy the bands. There is also a larger bar off to one side and there’s plenty of room to move around over there as well should you decide on that part of the club. It certainly had a Gothic Shock Rock feel tonight and this made it all the better based on the participants in the evenings festivities. “Ghouls On Parade” would be a tour that featured not only Wednesday 13 and his fellow zombie rockers but also finds them supported by the bands Anti-Product and Creature Feature. Trashlight Vision was supposed to be on this as well but sadly would disband just before the tour was to set to begin. I made sure to get there early enough tonight since I had heard so much about the openers as well that I knew I needed to determine what was up for myself. Here is what the story is.
