STATIC-X Embarks on a European Summer Tour

Static-x Static-X will be hammering out their heaviest, most flammable work to date as they start their trek of major European festivals June 12th in Tallinn, Estonia. Just coming off the coattails of headlining 2009's Snocore US run, this European metal journey is in support of their new release CULT OF STATIC, on Reprise Records. The album marries the band's aggressive driving force with disarming experimentation, a performance you do not want to miss.

Static-X's CULT OF STATIC debuted at #16 on Billboard's TOP 200 while STRINGWRAY hit the charts as the first single. Keeping the integral tones, Static-X encompasses shredding guitars with solos that have brought the band to a level of playing to be reckoned with. The cybernetic stomp of "Hypure" and "You Am I" bludgeon, bruise and break with precise grooves. Elsewhere, the staccato riffs on "Terminal" crush through an unmistakable guitar tone. Guitarist Koichi Fukuda blazes through incendiary solos, while Tony Campos bolts down demonic bass lines and Nick Oshiro pounds out deadly rhythms. Front-man Wayne Static riffs pure violence and screams out his soul. "Over the years my voice has been destroyed from excessive touring... and I love it," exclaims Static. "The vocals on the new record are raw and brutal." The fiery raw quality of CULT OF STATIC is blatant as the second single Z-28 now on the airwaves is climbing to the top.
