Though I’ve enjoyed shining the spotlight on the touring side of the musical fence, I should admit that I never anticipated doing them here on the website and felt it would only be an occasional thing that would be done when I had the “PiercingMetal Musings” blog. This side notion just hit me as I’ve now surpassed more than 1K of these kinds of posts and now its time to alert the masses about a super cool combination as The 69 Eyes will return to our shores with direct support from Mr. Scary himself, Wednesday 13. Take a look down below at the full press release and dates.
The Press Release:
Helsinki Vampires, THE 69 EYES are proud to announce their Hell Has No Mercy 2020 U.S.Tour. Kicking off on January 15th at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, the 24 date trek will make stops in Chicago, West Hollywood and Richmond before concluding at Reverb in Reading, PA on February 22nd. Direct support will be none other than label-mates The Duke of Spook and his devilish ghouls known collectively as WEDNESDAY 13. Joining them on the tour are THE NOCTURNAL AFFAIR and THE CROWNED
We might be dealing with the summer heat in my neck of the woods, but that doesn’t stop Mr. Wednesday 13 from announcing a brand new Fall tour. Check out the press release below. I’ll close out with editorial notations afterwards as always.
The Duke of Spook WEDNESDAY 13, will continue to support his highly successful Condolences release and embark on a North American tour this fall. Several dates will include performances with legendary guitarist JOHN 5 and shock-rocker DAVEY SUICIDE.
Comments mainman WEDNESDAY:
“We’re really excited to be hitting the road this fall. Doing the first week with JOHN 5 should be nothing short of a MONSTER show, and we’re super stoked. We’re also really excited to be touring Canada, as this will be our first time with this many dates. Looking forward to playing some new places and performing for all of our Canadian fans. We will be wrapping up the tour on the West Coast at the world famous Whisky a Go Go right before we head to the studio to record the follow up to Condolences. Looking forward to seeing everyone on tour!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I’ve been a fan of Wednesday 13 and his slick brand of Horror Hard Rock with its occasional Metal/Punk edge and think that more people need to get their a$$es out and support his live performances. Sure I’ve seen him play to crowded rooms over the years but it’s usually the already converted to his dark cause and we always need new blood at these sorts of affairs. The “Condolences” album is a heavy one and his show always manages to pull out all the stops. If you like a garish front man who gets right up in your face with a devilish message, why wait until there is another Papa fronting Ghost? The Grooviest Ghoul of them all is waiting for your soul and if you don’t give it willingly, I’m sure he’ll send someone (or something) after it regardless. Let me know what you folks think of this one, and if you are one of the already faithful perhaps you can help me convince some newbies to get a little scare into their systems.
While many of us are preparing for Halloween, this latest alert will fast forward us to the New Year and one of the special happenings that will take place during the annual NAMM Show. Check it out.
The Press Release:
METAL ALLEGIANCE has announced that they’ll be returning to their second home of Anaheim, California at the House of Blues on Thursday, January 25th for their annual January metal assault! This year marks the introduction of Bobby Blitz (Overkill) and John Bush (Armored Saint / ex-Anthrax) to their ranks in addition to the surprise guests they are known for.

I just made mention that with summer steadily chugging away how the next seasons tours are coming at us and this one adds to the mix with a sinister sense. Yes my fiends, the garish and gruesome Wednesday 13 will be bringing his melodical freak show to the masses in a set of happenings known as “Condolences Across America”. Check out the press and the dates below.
The Press Release:
WEDNESDAY 13 announces North American tour in this fall
The duke of spook, WEDNESDAY 13, has announced 2nd leg of headlining dates supporting his latest critically acclaimed album, Condolences.
Artist: Wednesday 13 Title: “What The Night Brings” (Single) Label: Nuclear Blast Records Release Date: 3/25/2017 Genre: Horror Punk Rating: 4/5
It wasn’t too long ago that I shared and briefly discussed the brand new video by Wednesday 13 with his song “What The Night Brings”. It hails from his forthcoming album “Condolences” which will hit the streets care of his brand-new record label Nuclear Blast Records. The video was pretty creepy and done with a dramatic flair and you can watch it and learn what I thought about it via THIS LINK. Now its time to add a few more thoughts about the tune itself since fans can purchase the single via Amazon.com and iTunes. Continue reading “What The Night Brings” (Single) by Wednesday 13→
