Static-X were last in Australia in 2019, and this tour marks their second run of Australian shows since the death of founding front person Wayne Static.
Static-X – ‘All These Years’
Static-X was founded in 1994 by Static and drummer Ken Jay after the breakup of their former band, Deep Blue Dream, which also featured the Smashing Pumpkins‘ Billy Corgan. Static-X released six albums between 1999-2009 before disbanding in 2013.
In 2014, Wayne Static died of multiple prescription drug toxicity. In 2018 Static-X reformed and in 2019 they welcomed the new masked lead singer, Xer0. Static-X have released one album with this new line-up: 2020s Project: Regeneration Vol. 1.
