Just when you thought all the fun was gone in rock….The inimitable MURDERDOLLS are BACK! Their first album for eight years, titled ‘Women and Children Last’ hits stores on 30th August.
MURDERDOLLS is the frankenstein brainchild of Joey Jordison and partner-in-grime, Wednesday 13. The band sees Joey step from his day job and masked role behind the drumkit in Slipknot, to low slung lead guitar, whilst Wednesday fronts the band. The duo breathed new life into the project with a brand new line-up, yet their ‘fuck you’ attitude, devilish glamour and trademark black sense of humour remain. Joey and Wednesday are excited to bring back their revamped musical monster, exclaiming, “We don't look at this as a return...this is REVENGE! The music scene today is as boring and stale as it was in 2002, when we first formed the band. And this time around, everyone is the enemy!”
Wednesday dug deep for the lyrical content on ‘Women And Children Last’. He declares, "It's definitely personal. I've been doing campy horror lyrics since I was 15 years old, and I wanted to expand beyond that. For the new Murderdolls, I wanted to keep the humour and violence intact, but I wanted to show a different side of the band. I'm singing about life this time, instead of Dracula. If you really want to get down to it, we're a sex-drugs-rock-n-roll band more than anything."
"Drug Me To Hell" and "Blood Stained Valentine” feature solos from legendary Mötley Crüe guitarist, Mick Mars. About working with Mars, Jordison comments, "He's always been my favourite member of Mötley Crüe. He's just a really classy guy, and his guitar playing is so unique. We sent the songs to him, and he loved them and before we knew it, he was in the studio tracking. The way he plays - his style - is so different than anyone that I've ever seen. He's like a demonic Jeff Beck." Wednesday elaborates, "Every day around 6 o'clock, we'd have dinner and the Mötley Crüe ‘Behind the Music’ would be on VH1 Classic, so we had to call Mick for 'Blood Stained Valentine.' It was really cool sitting next to this guy in the studio knowing that he wrote some of my favourite songs that were the soundtrack to most of my life. I've always considered Mick Mars to be one of the true villains of rock 'n' roll like Ozzy and Alice Cooper. I hope one day we're looked at in that same way."
Comments Joey, "We’ve waited 8 years to make sure, but this is the perfect time to bring Murderdolls back to the world. We've got nothing to lose, and nothing to prove. So raise your fist along with us motherfuckers and sorry if you get a bloody nose along the way. It’s about to get ugly!..."Women and Children Last"!!!”
