Wednesday 13 says he’d welcome a Murderdolls reunion if it was something fans wanted to see.

And speaking exclusively to Metal Hammer, the singer admits he hasn’t spoken with the band’s co-founder Joey Jordison for five years – and only discovered the drummer’s struggles when he read the magazine.

Wednesday 13 says: “The last time I spoke to Joey Jordison was in April 2011 at our very last show – and all I’ve heard from Joey is what I’ve seen in Metal Hammer in past few months. That’s all I know.

“I’m glad to see he’s doing awesome. Thanks to Murderdolls, people know who I am, so I am forever indebted to that band to Joey for giving me that opportunity.”

Murderdolls released two albums, 2002’s Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls and 2010’s Women And Children Last – and despite the distance between himself and Jordison, Wednesday 13 won’t rule out a reunion.

The vocalist continues: “We did some really cool stuff together, made a lot of fans and made two awesome records. Will it ever happen again? I didn’t think a second record would happen, we didn’t speak for eight years and then it happened.

“But I also think it’s kind of dumb for anyone to hold any grudges over music because at the end of the day, it’s all about the fans. If there’s something to do for the fans, I’d definitely entertain it and do it again.”

The full interview will be available in an upcoming Metal Hammer feature.

Wednesday 13 is currently working on his seventh album which will be titled Condolences. It’s set to be released in 2017. He’s currently on tour across the US and will return to the UK for two London dates across the Halloween weekend.

Jordison, meanwhile, is currently involved with his Sinsaenum and Vimic projects.
