Static-X Is Officially Over…Again

In an interview with The Gauntlet, Wayne Static has announced that Static-X is officially over once again. The group had reformed last year for the “Noise Revolution Tour” after the band’s hiatus in 2009 but the tour was cut short due to Static developing a hernia that required medical procedures.

Static explains, “I ended up developing this really bad hernia throughout the tour. And it kept getting worse and worse. It was from touring. I’m getting older and I guess I was pushing myself too hard; we were doing six shows in a row and all that kind of thing. I had a hernia belt on and I was shoving crap in there, trying to keep my guts from pushing out on stage. It was just getting worse and worse and worse, and it just got to the point where I couldn’t do it anymore, so I had to cancel the tour. And then I asked Tony if we could take a break on the deal. Obviously, if I’m not working, how am I supposed to pay him? I don’t shit money; I am not made out of money. So he pretty much told me to fuck off. He’s, like, ‘Boohoohoo, you have a hernia. Sorry. Give me my money.’ I told him, ‘Dude, give me a few months off to recuperate, and then we’ll start up the deal again.’ ‘Cause I wanted to keep touring. But he wouldn’t do it. Apparently, he was really pissed off because I said in some interviews that Static-X were never, like, all gret buddies and friends and all that kind of stuff, and we never hung out. So he told me, like, ‘Since you said we’re not friends, then why should I help you out?’ I’m, like, ‘Who gives a fuck? It’s business, dude.’ And that’s the truth — we weren’t friends; we never hung out. And there’s nothing wrong with that; there’s a lot of bands like that.

He continues, “So that’s pretty much the end of it. Tony wouldn’t give me the break. I had to go have my surgery and take my time off, and he wouldn’t give me the break, so the deal lapsed, the deal’s done, Static-X is done. The end. No more Static-X.

      I only know of them because they had a pretty cool song in a Road Rash game on the ps1… other than that. Yeh well…

  • Skull-And-Crossbones

    sucks. i loved this band. but they’re probably better off ending it if that’s the way they feel about each other. i’m ok with it.

    I’m glad I saw them live a few years back. They had a good run and hit their prime a few years back. djblack, if you are asking “who?”, then you’re showing your age. These guys were great about 10-15yrs ago. YouTube their video “This is Not”.

    Def will be missed, Cult of static was pretty badass as their last effort. One of my faves growing up for sure.

  • STRIK9

    Good. Nuthin but a shit nu metal band. Disturbed and Godsmack should follow as well.
