Static-X Reunites For New Album and Tour
Four years after the death of frontman Wayne Static, the original members of Static-X have announced they’re reuniting for a new album and world tour. The original lineup of Tony Campos, Koichi Fukuda, and Ken Jay will be commemorating the 20th anniversary of their platinum-selling debut album, Wisconsin Death Trip. Campos says the project will include the final vocal performances and compositions of Wayne Static taken from recordings.
“With the 20th anniversary of Wisconsin Death Trip quickly approaching, it feels like the right time to pay our respects to the band, to Wayne, and to all the fans who have been with us right from the start.” says the bassist. “We had a lot of material to work with… several demos that Wayne left behind, as well as some really great isolated vocal performances from some nearly finished songs. Together, we have been writing and crafting something very special!”
Static-X’s new album, Project Regeneration, is planned for a spring 2019 release with 12-15 brand new songs. Campos adds that unfinished tracks will be filled with guest vocalists, explaining that the band has gotten interest from “David Draiman, Ivan Moody, Al Jorgensen, Dez Fafara, Edsel Dope, Burton C Bell, and a few others,” though it’s too early to “know how things will shake out.”

The album is open to pre-orders with special bundles and autographed CD booklets. Participants in the pre-order will get their name in the CD liner notes. For more, visit the Static-X website.
