Wednesday 13 Partners With Hot Topic


February 19, 2008

Wednesday 13 is pleased to announce that his upcoming cd, “Skeletons”, will be available exclusively at Hot Topic.

Commented Jon Nelson, Wednesday 13’s manager, “Once we decided to self-release Wednesday 13’s upcoming music, the next step was to partner with a company that would be excited and support the release. Music retailers are closing their stores at a rapid pace, or they are gauging the customers and jacking the prices up for a new release to $14-$17.99. There is no reason for that. We made one call to Hot Topic, and we are extremely excited about this relationship. Hot Topic will be the only brick & mortar store that will be stocking the cd. You will still be able to get the cd online and on tour.”

As stated “Skeletons” is Wednesday 13’s most personal recording to date. Although still infused with horror overtones, the cd deals with Wednesday’s depression, desperation and a struggle that almost caused his untimely demise. Wednesday will self-release “Skeletons” in N. American but will be teaming up with a label for overseas distribution.

An April 29, 2008 release is slated.

Wednesday 13 is pleased to announce that he has tapped Andrew Akelel to mix his upcoming release “Skeletons”.

Andrew has been a force in the music industry for a number of years. He has worked with such bands as Fu Manchu, No Doubt, Foo Fighters, Rancid, Tiger Army, Tool and Nine Inch Nails.

Commented Wednesday “Originally, I had planned to mix the cd myself. However, given the opportunity to work with someone as talented as Andrew, I had to go with him. I am extremely excited to hear how he adds more life to these songs”.
