Terrance Zdunich and Saar Hendelman, who most recently collaborated on Devil’s Carnival: Alleluiah! are touring again! This time, they’re taking their newest project, American Murder Song, on the road. Zdunich and Hendelman are calling this the American Wake Tour, and tickets are available here.

The Devil’s Carnival, the first movie in this trilogy of musicals, tells the story of three souls who end up in hell. Their stories mirror three Aesop’s Fables as told by the Devil himself (Terrance Zdunich) to a young boy. The movie ends with *spoiler* Lucifer deciding to wage war with God and Heaven.
