Wednesday 13 forms new band GUNFIRE 76.
Is Wed 13 the Chad Johnson of Goth Rock?
We found this in an internet gutter and figured we’d update you on the God of Ghoul!
Wednesday 13 to begin recording Gunfire 76
Wednesday 13 will enter the studio on July 1 to begin recording with his new band, Gunfire 76.
Currently Wednesday has been writing with Todd Youth (Danzig, D-Generation, The Chelsea Smiles) to record a cd that will have more of a rock sound.
“Gunfire 76 will be my extension in to the rock world. After touring with The Chelsea Smiles, Todd Youth and I would find ourselves discussing the bands we grew up on and decided to put a band together that fits more of the rock n roll sound of Kiss, Deadboys, NY Dolls, The Stooges and the in-your-face rock n roll sound. Not being signed to a record label allows me to create new projects and continue growing as an artist.“
Gunfire 76’s debut is set to be released in Oct 2009. The band will be recording with producer Howard Willing in Los Angeles and are currently setting up a tour for 2009.
The cd will be self-released in the the U.S. and Wednesday will partner with a company for overseas distribution.
“Gunfire 76 will be on tour this year. We are currently booking a U.S. / U.K tour for the end of the year with Bullets and Octane. I have always wanted to tour with those guys, but the Wednesday 13 music never fit their rock and roll style. Together this should be one great rock show!”
The band’s myspace is www.myspace.com/gunfire76
It will be updated with news, info and pictures in the coming weeks.

W13 answers some questions
W13 here to answer a few questions and clear the air on the new band Gunfire 76, Wednesday 13 etc.
1. Is Wednesday 13 done with/broke up?
Absolutely not, we are just taking a break. I have been working on W13 non stop since late 2003, and its been an long fun ride but I just need to take a break from it. Having other projects such as the new band Gunfire 76 and Bourbon Crow allows me to venture into other styles of music that i cant do with Wednesday 13. Once I return back to touring/recording with Wednesday 13 it will be full on horror themed ghoul rock as you all expect and know.
2. The New band Gunfire 76, what is it and what is it about?
Gunfire 76 is a new band I have started alongside Todd Youth. While touring with Todd and the Chelsea Smiles last march/april in the UK he and I quickly became good friends and started discussing the idea of forming a band that reflected on our influences like Kiss, Ramones, The Stooges, NY Dolls etc. I will not be playing guitar in this band and will be just the frontman. We will record our debut cd in July and plan to release it and tour the US and Europe by the end of the year.
3. Bourbon Crow, news, more tours?
We just wrapped up the BC tour May 24th in NC and it was great. I had a blast, Thanks to Roman, Rayen, Nate, and our crew Roger and Kris you guys rule. It was a nice change to go out and play as BC and not have to worry about costumes and make up for once. We may do some more BC shows later this year with the 4 of us but in the mean time Rayen and I are considering doing some summer shows as a duo in and around NC. Stay tuned for more info on that.
Still no def plans but there is talk between Joey and I on a new Murderdolls cd. Keep your fingers crossed, only time will tell.
5. What have you done to your hair?
Yes its true, the dreads are gone. They are in a ziplock bag in my bedroom. Reason? 11 years is long enough for me toting those things around, I needed a change and I did. Love it or hate it…I refuse to be a slave to an image or hairstyle.
Yeah but dude….WTF! Why not answer the real hard questions…like what about your name?
Will you still be Wednesday 13? Or will it be something new & exciting like Uzi Uno Cinco?
This boy is addicted to some crazy ass numbers, must be fucking with a weegee board again.
