Jack Tankersley

Jack Tankersley (2010  – Present)

Jack Tankersley joined Wednesday 13  first as a member of Gunfire’76 as he replaced Dave Musselman on guitar in 2010. When the Murderdolls needed a bassist to help support the Women and Children Last tour in 2010. He left Bullets and Octane and joined the band and finished the tour. When the band disbanded he joined Wednesday 13 on his solo efforts as a guitarist.

Jack was involved in 2011 Calling All Corpses and finished that tour. He also was part of the EP Spook and Destroy in 2012, The Dixie Dead in 2013, Undead Unplugged as he played guitar and of course Monster of the Universe: Come on Out and Plague in 2015.

Jack continued with the band in 2017 by being the guitarist for the band during the recording of Condolences and did the supporting tour for that CD.

October 2018 Wednesday 13 did his Halloween again in the UK but this time he split it up over the weekend. The Friday night they did Skeletons from beginning to end to celebrate the 10th anniversary. (also Roman proposed to his girlfriend Shelly D’ Inferno on stage)The Saturday night Wednesday 13 did a special Frankenstein Drag Queens Set.

Much like Roman Surman, Jack Tankersley has been a solid member of Wednesday 13 for sometime.

Wednesday 13- Undead Unplugged (2014)

After doing the Bourbon Crow thing Wednesday 13 thought it would be cool to some a unplugged record to match the success of some of the unplugged shows he was doing.

In 2014 he released an acoustic record with versions of songs from his solo career, with one original track entitled Undead. The album also features acoustic versions of Murderdolls and Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 songs, both being bands Wednesday 13 had fronted in the past.

Before the release of the Undead Unplugged , Wednesday 13 released a few acoustic versions of songs from Bloodwork and Spook and Destroy EPs with an acoustic version of Curse of Me first appearing on Spook and Destroy. The album was released shortly after The Undead Unplugged UK Tour in 2014.

Wednesday 13 and Jack Tankersley appeared on the record together but Roman Surman joined the Undead tour and on stage.

Jack Tankersley – Guitar

Personal View – The new track Undead is actually decent and new and some of the chosen tracks to do unplugged are nice as it hits all era of his catalogue.  Too bad that some of the songs were released earlier on EPs and not replaced for more new stuff but it was a nice addition to the Wednesday 13 collection.

Wednesday 13 has said it before that Roman Surman is like a brother and he uses him as the man to listen to songs and tracks and correct him as second ear for his music. Roman is still a current member of the Wednesday 13 band.
