Static-X has cancelled all remaining tour dates on the Evil Disco tour. The band performed on Oct. 6th at The Machine Shop in Flint, MI but needs to cancel the remaining dates due to singer/guitarist Wayne Static’s need for medical procedures “…to remedy problems that have been hampering his performance.” Emmure and Ill Nino will be continuing the tour as scheduled.
Static states, “I’m so sorry to all my fans but I cant give you the 1000% you deserve from Static-X every night right now. Evil disco will continue in 2013. Just wait until you see whats next!!!”

Alright people, what do you think of it? You excited for this album or would you rather have another Static-X album?
I don’t know about you guys but I’m a huge Static-X fan. They’ve been pretty damn consistent in sound and releases and their music is always a lot of fun. Plus, if you’re a horror fan in the slightest, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ve heard their music in at least two or three films. I mean, let’s look at a few of the bigs ones: Bride of Chucky, Scream 3, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (remake), Saw III, and more. If you haven’t seen these movies, then what are you doing on this site? Shame on you!
Coming back to the story, Static-X frontman Wayne Static is releasing his first solo album, Pighammer, on October 4th. There is a teaser video after the jump that is definitely tailored to horror fans, so make sure to check it out!
