GUNFIRE 76: New Touring Lineup Announced

WEDNESDAY 13's latest project, GUNFIRE 76, will kick off the "This Is Rock N Roll" tour on January 8 in Raleigh, North Carolina. The band's lineup for the trek will consist of the following musicians:

Wednesday 13 - Vocals
Roman Surman - Guitar
Jack Tankersley (BULLETS AND OCTANE) - Guitar
Nate Manor (WEDNESDAY 13) - Bass
Rob Hammersmith - Drums

"Casualties & Tragedies", the debut album from GUNFIRE 76, was recorded at a studio in Charlotte, North Carolina and was released in October via Wednesday 13 LLC. The CD was mixed by Brent Clawson, who is best known as the bassist for BULLETS AND OCTANE. Brent has produced, mixed and engineered "Dirty Angel" from Nick Oliveri's band THE KNIVES; engineered and mixed GUTTERMOUTH's "Eat Your Face"; and produced, engineered and mixed the last two CDs from BULLETS AND OCTANE"Song For The Underdog" and "Bullets and Octane".

According to a press release, the album — which features material written by Wednesday and Todd Youth (DANZIG, D-GENERATION, THE CHELSEA SMILES) — has "more of a rock sound."

"GUNFIRE 76 [is] my extension into the rock world," said Wednesday. "After touring with THE CHELSEA SMILES, Todd Youth and I would find ourselves discussing the bands we grew up on and decided to put a band together that fits more of the rock and roll sound of KISS, DEAD BOYS, NEW YORK DOLLS, THE STOOGES and the in-your-face rock n roll sound. Not being signed to a record label allows me to create new projects and continue growing as an artist."

GUNFIRE 76 spent December touring the U.K., with BULLETS AND OCTANE acting as main support. Fan-filmed video footage of the December 7 concert in Glasgow can be viewed below.
