Industrial metal band Static-X has announced that they will be embarking on a short US tour this December with support coming from The Defiled and Madlife. It is the first tour since vocalist/guitarist Wayne Static had to undergo hernia surgery late last year.
Static comments, “It’s been almost a year but I am finally 100% recovered from my surgery I had in November 2012. For those of you who do not know I developed a hernia during the Static-X tour last Fall. I kept the tour going despite my medical situation because I do not like to cancel shows, but my health finally got to the point where I could not perform anymore and I had to cancel the final two weeks of the tour.
“I am very excited to get back out and perform for all of you! I have made a couple of line up changes in my band and we are ready to bring all of you the Evil Disco you have come to expect from my live show, whether it be Static-X or my solo band. On guitar I have Ashes, who has been a staple in my band since 2011, on Bass I have Andy, who made his debut with me at the tail end of the Static-X tour in 2012, and on drums I am bringing back former old school Static-X drummer (2007-2009) Bevan Davies.
“We will be performing a ton of everyone’s favorite Static-X songs along with a few songs from my solo cd Pighammer. It’s a really fun set list and we’re ready to kick everyone’s ass and have a good time. Let’s do some shots!”
