The Murderdolls, featuring Slipknot’s Joey Jordison and Static X’s Tripp Eisen, will preview songs from their upcoming album, Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls, with a series of shows in late July and early August. The group has 10 shows on the itinerary beginning July 30 in San Diego. Most of the destinations are in the western U.S.
Muderdolls vocalist Wednesday 13 compares the live show to “the final scene from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, where it’s just complete chaos-people screaming, chainsaws running down the road, people getting hit by trucks.”
The band cites a horror-flick inspiration for the album as well, claiming Friday The 13th and Night Of The Living Dead helped shape lyrical themes. “We’re like the musical equivalent of being kicked in the f-kin’ teeth,” Jordison says.
Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls arrives August 20 from Roadrunner Records.
