Static-X Announces Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary Tour
The surviving members of Static-X have announced that they will be launching the Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary Tour this summer to pay tribute to late frontman Wayne Static.
The band (Tony Campos, Ken Jay and Koichi Fukuda) will be playing a majority of the album during the tour, which they will be coheadlining with DevilDriver, with Dope supporting.
The band announced, "In celebration of this announcement, we would like to share this tour promo teaser, containing a brand new audio / video clip of us performing 'Push It'." Watch it here.
Campos had this to say, "Our intention is to pay ultimate respect to Wayne and to celebrate the music that has been in all of our hearts for more than 20 years. It's all about channeling the vibe from 1999 to the best of our ability and playing those classic Static-X songs live and loud with the fans."
Jay shared, "We understand that people are naturally going to want to know more about who is singing. We have discussed this at great length and we came to the conclusion that at this time, it would be inappropriate for us to put the focus on anyone other than Wayne, Tony, Koichi and myself. This feels like the best way for us to celebrate Wayne's legacy, along with the 20th anniversary of Wisconsin Death Trip, with all of our fans."
Fukuda added, "Rehearsals have been awesome. The music and the vocals are sounding really great! I feel like Wayne would be proud."
