The Duke of Spook, WEDNESDAY 13 reveals another taste of his hotly anticipated 9th studio album Horrifier, in the shape of ‘Insides Out’. One of, if not the heaviest track of his career, the gory cut is accompanied an equally gruesome video, above, and arrives in the wake of addictive first single, ‘You’re So Hideous’.
Horrifier is set to arrive on 7 October via his new label home, Napalm Records. Pre-orders or pre-save now.
WEDNESDAY 13 tells us: “Our latest single ‘Insides Out’ is a very heavy song, so it only made sense to make a video to match the sound! Torture and violence is the main theme of this song, and we continue along the lines of the last music video with another horror movie theme here too.”
Showcasing a blend of styles plucked from the band’s 20-year career, Horrifier weaves an underlying sonic thread reminiscent of WEDNESDAY 13’s roots – a raucous blend of ballistic metal and macabre heavy rock that’ll have new and diehard fans alike ascending from the depths. As always, various tracks on the album are inspired by classic horror flicks, this time circling cult-favorite slasher John Carpenter’s Halloween and the iconic Christine supernatural thrillers.
Horrifier was produced and recorded by WEDNESDAY 13 with mixing and mastering by Brent Clawson, and features stunning album artwork by Jonny Bush. A dynamic journey into the 20-year career-spanning sound of WEDNESDAY 13, Horrifier revitalizes with something for every listener to latch onto – boasting intensely fun horror punk energy with gruesome metallic attitude!
WEDNESDAY 13 offers about Horrifier: “The last three releases have seen the band explore new ground with heavier songs, drums, and vocals. Coming out of the Covid crisis, I promised I would not release a sad, depressing record. I wanted to make a fun, horror themed rock record that would be reminiscent of the first few WEDNESDAY 13 records. The new album is a fun, fast-paced, thriller!”
