Wednesday 13  will headline The Dogtooth Stage at Download this summer on Saturday, June 10, but he has teased the possibility that a future return to Donginton Park could be made by - The Murderdolls.
The horror punk rocker has refused to rule out a future Murderdolls reunion by stating their are no reasons why he can't reform the band with former Slipknot Joey Jordison.
Wednesday 13 helped created the Murderdolls with Jordison but the band have been on a long time hiatus but he says that doesn't mean it will be the case indefinitely.
"It's cool to know that that band's liked and still loved after all the years and it wasn't just a side project like everyone thought it was gonna be in the beginning," Wednesday 13 tells  "Talk Toomey" podcast.
"It's got a lot of fans, and over the years, man… I tour nine months out of the year, and I'm lucky, I get to go around the world and see people, and I see the Murderdolls fans — I see tattoos, I see the shirts. It's still alive. So anytime that come up, and especially now that Joey's no longer in Slipknot, everyone's, like, 'Well, why can't you guys do it?' And I ask the same thing: I don't know why we can't do it."
He continues: "So I'm hoping, in the future, once Joey and I get some spare time off from doing our new projects, with this [new Wednesday 13] record ['Condolences'] and what he's got going on as well — I know he's busy — in a couple of years, if we can sit down and maybe do a Murderdolls tour. It'd be cool to do that, and then if it does well, if we wanna do a record, we can talk from that point. There's no point, in my mind, why we can't do something on the side. And it would be like a side thing, because I'm focused on doing Wednesday 13. I wouldn't wanna put that on the side for Murderdolls. Murderdolls could just be like a thing. Like when I saw the Misfits do that reunion thing, I was, like, 'Wow! This is so cool. They should have done this a long time ago.' 
"And it doesn't mean [Glenn] Danzig can't still do Danzig. That's his priority, and he's making it his priority, and he does the Misfits probably whenever he feels like it. That's how I would like Murderdolls to be. I'm not comparing us to the Misfits, but [I would like to see us] in that type of touring-type schedule. It would be cool to do that."
Continuing on the subject of his former band mate Jordison he continued: "Joey's always kind of been a recluse, so when he stayed out of the light there for a while, [after] the Slipknot stuff [happened], which I understand that as well," the singer said. "Yeah, it's great to see him back out playing music and kicking ass on the drums. 
"He's still one of the fucking best drummers in the world, and I had a great time playing with him. He and I, when we get together and write music, it's so much fun — it really is. We have a really, really good time doing that. So, yeah, I wish him the best and I hope that we can work out doing Murderdolls sometime in the future. It would be fun to do that."
Wednesday 13 will release his seventh solo studio album, "Condolences", on June 2 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
