Guitarist and vocalist Wayne Static of the Los Angeles-based metal quartet Static-X has issued the following update from the band’s Myspace, it reads:
“I am excited to announce our new CD, entitled ‘Cult of Static’, will be released on March 17.
“I started writing a year ago in January 2008 after coming home from the long tour for ‘Cannibal’.
“The past year has been quite a blur; between writing and recording the new CD and releasing the ‘Cannibal Killers Live’ DVD, I’ve kept very busy.
“I know you are all going to love this new record. It has everything you have come to expect from STATIC-X… and more. This is the most epic record we’ve ever made, it has the most crushing guitar tone I’ve ever had, and we even got Dave Mustaine of Megadeth to play a guitar solo on a new version of the song ‘Lunatic’ [which originally appeared on the soundtrack release to ‘Punisher: War Zone’]. Tony, Koichi, Nick, and myself put everything we had into recording this CD.
“I can hardly believe it’s been a decade since the release of our first CD, ‘Wisconsin Death Trip’, and we’re still going strong, thanks to all of you!
“The title ‘Cult of Static’ is meant to be a big thank-you to everyone who has supported us through the years.
“I’m looking forward to seeing you all on the upcoming world tour.”
