STATIC-X kicked off its reunion tour on June 18 in Tempe, Arizona. The North American trek, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of STATIC-X 's platinum-certified "Wisconsin Death Trip" album and pays homage to late STATIC-X frontman Wayne Static , features co-headliner DEVILDRIVER and support from DOPE .
While the identity of STATIC-X 's touring singer has not been officially revealed, strong rumors suggest that DOPE frontman Edsel Dope is pulling double duty during the trek and performing with drummer Ken Jay , guitarist Koichi Fukuda and bassist Tony Campos .
"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.
STATIC-X is currently focused on finishing 12 tracks for "Project Regeneration" , with almost all of them set to feature Wayne 's lead vocals.
STATIC-X is in the process of finalizing a label partner in order to ensure that "Project Regeneration" will be promoted and distributed worldwide, just like all of the band's previous albums.
Last fall, STATIC-X released a teaser featuring clips from a brand-new music video, as well as five new STATIC-X tracks — "Road To Hell" , "Something Of My Own" , "Terminator Oscillator" , "Hollow" and "Disco Otsego" — along with a personal message from Campos about the inspiration behind "Project Regeneration" .
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" .
The group issued five more studio albums before disbanding permanently in June 2013. Static had been pursuing a solo career at the time of his death.
