Following his most recent trio of gigs – which culminated with him headlining the Dogtooth stage at Download yesterday (Saturday) – Wednesday 13 has announced another short run of dates just before Halloween.


Wed 13 - Condolences header


They are:


Thursday 26 October – Manchester, Club Academy

Friday 27 October – Glasgow, Garage

Saturday 28 October – London, O2 Islington Academy


Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday (16) June.


Wednesday told us:


"We can't wait to return to the UK again this October just in time for Halloween.  The past few years we've been doing two nights in London on Halloween to celebrate the anniversary of past releases.  This year, I wanted to change it up, and do 3 bigger shows in three different places.  These will be the ultimate Halloween Wednesday 13 shows, so expect the unexpected!"


Last week Wednesday unveiled a new video for the title track of his new album, 'Condolences', featuring a faux funeral - his own!



The song was inspired by David Bowie's death:


"[Condolences] is one of the first songs I wrote for the record.  The title came from when David Bowie passed away; I kept seeing 'Condolences, sorry for your loss.'  I realised how powerful that word was, so I picked my guitar up and started writing the riff for it; I had the chorus instantly."
