Static X is stopping by the Myth on Wednesday, December 4th as part of their tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their ‘Wisconsin Death Trip’ album.
The surviving members of Static-X intend on honoring the legacy of their classic breakout album, ‘Wisconsin Death Trip’, by reuniting the original lineup and performing music from the influential album.
Bassist Tony Campos, drummer Ken Jay and guitarist Koichi Fukuda will also use the show as a way to honor late frontman Wayne Static. Campos says in a statement, “Our intention is to pay ultimate respect to Wayne and to celebrate the music that has been in all of our hearts for more than 20 years. It’s all about channeling the vibe from 1999 to the best of our ability and playing those classic Static-X songs live and loud with the fans.”
Wayne Static died in November 2014 after mixing Xanax and other powerful prescription drugs with alcohol, according to the coroner’s report. The 48-year-old, whose real name was Wayne Richard Wells, was found dead in his Landers, California home. Static founded STATIC-X in 1994 and achieved commercial success with “Wisconsin Death Trip”, which included the rock radio hit “Push It”. “Project Regeneration”, featuring the last recordings of Static, will be released later this year. The rest of the group’s original lineup will also be featured on the album and in the music videos.
Joining in on this tour will be Mushroomhead, Dope, Wednesday 13, and- a personal favorite of mine- Raven Black!
