Wednesday 13 is a horror punk singer/songwriter and musician who is known as the front man of several projects including Murderdolls and his own eponymous band. Born Joseph Poole, he began his music career in 1992 as guitarist for the band Mizery before becoming the lead singer of Maniac Spider Trash, which he eventually left to start Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13. After five studio albums and a handful of EPs between 1996 to 2002, Poole moved on to join Murderdolls. His Wednesday 13 moniker followed shortly after when Murderdolls went on a temporary hiatus in 2004 and Pool decided to embark on a solo tour of the UK with members of Death Becomes You. Upon his return, he constructed a permanent band and lent the project his Wedneday 13 name. Since Wednesday 13's debut album Transylvania 90210, released in 2005, the band has been steadily offering releases to hoards of punk and metal fans while Poole continues to find time for his other projects.
