After the Murderdolls went on hiatus in 2004, Poole went on a solo tour of the United Kingdom in March 2004, called the "Graveyard A Go-Go" tour. For his live performances he was joined by members of Florida horror punk band Death Becomes You, though this was not meant to be permanent.
Poole returned to North Carolina in June 2004 he began to put together a more permanent band, with whom he would perform with under the Wednesday 13 name. He brought in a former Frankenstein Drag Queens member Ikky on guitar. The band is heavily influenced by the likes ofKISS and Alice Cooper, while at the same time not straying far from Poole's previous horror punk related projects. In September 2004 Ikky was replaced with Matt Montgomery also known as Piggy D. Together the Wednesday 13 band toured Europe in November 2004 on the "Look What the Bats Dragged In" tour, some of the dates were supported by English rockers Viking Skull.
