The Duke of Spook, Mr Wednesday 13 is set to play some warm-up shows on these shores around his appearance at Bloodstock Festival in August.

Wednesday tells us,

“We’re really stoked to be heading back to the UK this summer.  We’re hitting Ireland, N.Ireland and Scotland for a few dates before we bring the blood and guts to the main stage at Bloodstock on Aug 10th!  We’re coming back with an all new show, new tricks and new treats, so get ready to get your grave on this August!”

Check out the tour’s video trailer here

Dates rack up as follows:

Tue 7th Aug – DUBLIN Tivoli
Wed 8th Aug – BELFAST Limelight
Thu 9th Aug – GLASGOW Garage
Fri 10th Aug – BURTON UPON TRENT Bloodstock Festival

Tickets are on sale now over at VIP ‘Up-Grave’ and Meet/Greet packages can be purchased at here. The dates are a co-headline with industrial aggrotech outfit, Combichrist as part of an extended European tour schedule, but Wednesday 13 will close the show at all three UK/Ireland dates.

Expect some classic Wednesday tunes and a few new cuts taken from his current album, ‘Condolences’, out now via Nuclear Blast.  Check out the schlocky horror video for ‘Cadaverous’.

Wednesday tells us:

“‘Cadaverous’ is the most campy video that we’ve made so far.  We really had fun with this one and it’s a throwback to all my spooky TV favourites like The Munsters and The Addams Family.  I hope our fans enjoy this as much as we did making it.”
