STATIC-X – New Album Delayed

The new STATIC-X album “Project Regeneration” will be arriving a bit later than expected according to the band. The group shared an update on that effort overnight, revealing the discovery of more vocal tracks from the late Wayne Static this past spring as being one of the reasons they’ve pushed back their timeline.

That discovery led to them having to start from scratch on new material while other songs had to be reworked. Another apparent factor in the delay is securing a label deal for the release.

The band’s Tony Campos, Koichi Fukuda and Ken Jay reunited for the upcoming record and a 20th anniversary tour behind the band’s debut album, “Wisconsin Death Trip“. For the new material they’ve largely been using previously unreleased recordings from the band’s late vocalist/guitarist Wayne Static.

Their early plans had a number of guest vocalists being brought in to flesh out the album, with the following participants having been approached:

David Draiman (Disturbed)
Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch)
Al Jourgensen (Ministry)
Dez Fafara (DevilDriver/Coal Chamber)
Edsel Dope (Dope)
Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory)

Edsel Dope himself has been rumored to have been the live replacement tapped to fill-in for Static, performing in a necrotized Wayne Static-like mask under the name of ‘Xero‘. You can read the band’s full update on the album delay below with the first leg of their “Wisconsin Death Trip” 20th anniversary tour set to commence next week.

That leg will find them out with DevilDriver, Dope, Wednesday 13 and Raven Black.
