Static-X Preview New Song 'Hallow'
Static-X have shared a video teaser for their new song "Hollow." The track will be featured on their forthcoming album "Project Regeneration", which is set to hit stores on May 29, 2020.
The surviving Wisconsin Death Trip lineup members of the band original planned to record the album with guest vocalists, but one of their producers discovered a number of unreleased tracks from the band featuring vocals from late frontman Wayne Static.
The band then decided to include the isolated vocal tracks on the album and they report that nearly every song will feature Wayne. Tony Campos explains, "It was very surreal. Our producer was going through all of these old studio tapes, many of which were damaged.
"He called me up and told me that I needed to get down to the studio right away and listen to what he found. I jumped in my car and raced to the studio and what he shared, f***ing blew me away. It was Wayne singing on track after track, but there was little to no music on any of it.. Most of the tapes were damaged and Waynes voice was virtually all that remained in tact."
drummer Ken Jay added, "It was just crazy!! There we were.. Myself, Tony and Koichi, back in the studio together, after all these years, and somehow the universe decided to surprise us with all of these lost Static-X tapes containing Waynes voice.
"I just couldn't help thinking that this was all somehow meant to be. I couldn't stop thinking about how happy this was going to make Waynes family, and all of the Static-X fans around the world." Watch the preview video here.
