Former SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison says that he is open to to the possibility of a reunion of the MURDERDOLLS.
Two months after he spent Memorial Day weekend hanging out with his onetime MURDERDOLLS bandmate Wednesday 13, Joey told the “Talk Toomey” podcast that he isn’t opposed to the idea of the two musicians collaborating on new music.
“It’s cool that I’ve been talking to Wednesday recently, but I can’t disclose anything [about a possible reunion],” he said (hear audio below). “Never say never, man — I mean, that’s life. It’s kind of funny, ’cause we have a bunch of songs that have been written and a bunch that are ready to go. Timing is everything, man — not necessarily anything about, ‘Oh, we need to do this to impress people,’ or, ‘We need to put out this record or do something like that.’ Timing in life is everything, so we’ll see. Only time will tell.”
Jordison‘s meeting with Wednesday 13 marked the first time the two musicians were in the same room together since 2011.
MURDERDOLLS has been inactive since completing the touring cycle in support of its sophomore album, “Women And Children Last”, which came out in August 2010 via Roadrunner Records.
In May, Wednesday 13 told Metal Wani that he had gotten in touch with Joey “about a year ago and just established contact again and mentioned the idea of doing something in the future — not [putting] a time on it or anything; just the idea of, ‘Would you be into it?’ And we both said, ‘Yes.’ And then I got busy doing my stuff, he was touring and putting a record out, and that’s the last I really kind of heard of it,” he said. “So that’s kind of where it is. So I can’t say that it will happen, or it won’t, but there’s definitely not any plans or anything that’s changed since the last thing I must have said [in an interview].”
Jordison told CrypticRock.com last year that he “would love to do another record” with MURDERDOLLS. He explained: “I have this punk rock and pop side of me that I don’t really get to get out in other areas in my life. When we did that band, it was just pretty much to express fun, have a great time, and kind of throw a monkeywrench into what was going on in rock and metal at the time, and it worked.”
Jordison — who played guitar for MURDERDOLLS — went on to say that the the tours he did with the MURDERDOLLS were “really awe-inspiring when you look in hindsight of what we accomplished in a short amount of time and the two records we did. I could not be more proud and happy of what we accomplished in that time,” he said. “Everyone that was in that band, the couple of different personnels we employed, the MURDERDOLLS were killer.”
