Murderdolls Reunite For ‘Women And Children Last’
March 24, 2010
It’s Official: Murderdolls Are Back!
SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison has confirmed to U.K.’s Kerrang! magazine that he and Wednesday 13 will return this summer in their horror-punk side-project MURDERDOLLS.
Although the band went on hiatus in January 2004, Joey tells Kerrang! that he and Wednesday are currently working with producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) on their new album, “Women And Children Last”, for a 2010 release.
Kerrang!: What started the ball rolling with regards to playing together again?
Jordison: “It’s been an ongoing conversation between Wednesday and I from 2006 until now. We were bored with everything out there, and thought we had something to piss people off and shake things up. Everything is such a product or a fucking formula these days… Fuck formula! Fuck the norm!”
Kerrang!: Apart from Wednesday 13, who else is in the band?
Jordison: “Much like the way [Norwegian black metal bands]DARKTHRONE or SATYRICON make records, Wednesday and I are doing the record ourselves with a couple of very special guests.”
Kerrang!: Do you have any plans to hit the U.K. soon?
Jordison: “Oh, we have plans! Just wait and see, U.K.! We love you guys and it will be well worth the wait! If you have a problem finding a band that rocks, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire The M-Team!”

Formed in 2002, MURDERDOLLS released one album in the form of”Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls”, which came out viaRoadrunner Records. The band had limited initial success in the United States, though its album and singles charted well in the United Kingdom and around the same time the group picked up a strong following in Japan.
MURDERDOLLS’ sound is made up of their shared influences, which include punk rock and 1970s hard rock acts such as KISS and ALICE COOPER. The band also shares an interest in horror movies, from which they take images and references.
