Following their raucous reception at Ozzfest at the O2 Arena recently, the MURDERDOLLS return to level the UK this coming February on their ‘God Save The Scream’ tour. It will be their first full UK tour in over six years.
The band have just wrapped a three-week US amphitheatre tour, opening for Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper’s pyro-laden ‘Halloween Hootenanny’ touring spectacular, picking up plenty of new fans on the way. MURDERDOLLS also play their own Halloween headline show in Hollywood, CA at The Roxy on 31st October.
Frontman Wednesday 13 is excited for the trip back over this side of the pond, stating "I can't wait to bring the MURDERDOLLS back for our first UK tour since 2003. The Death Valley Superstars are on their way! You've got blood and we'll take it". Meanwhile, guitarist and co-songwriter Joey Jordison adds: “There's no other place I love to play with the MURDERDOLLS more than the UK. It’s our home and will ALWAYS be our home. This is gonna top anything we've ever done there. Can't wait to see all of you. Let's party, motherfuckers!! I NEED THIS!!”
The band’s first album in eight years, ‘Women And Children Last’ picked up stellar reviews from the UK press on its August release, including 4/5 in Q Magazine, and 4/5 in The Sun (‘..gloriously trashy, sleazy, punk-metal’) and 8/10 in Metal Hammer (“The Murderdolls are back -they’re pissed off and this time they mean every fucking last word of it.”).
