Static-X Release Official Music Video for "Dead Souls" Featuring Vocals by Wayne Static

September 22, 2020 - Platinum selling, International recording artists STATIC-X have released a new music video for the song “Dead Souls,” from their 7th studio album, PROJECT REGENERATION Volume 1, Out NOW. The video was directed by Wombatfire (HELLYEAH, In Flames, Hollywood Undead, Tech 9) and the song features guest vocals from Ministry’s Al Jorgensen. You can watch the video below and purchase, stream, or download the song and album here: https://lnk.to/projectregeneration

"This song has become one of my favorite tracks on the record. We had no intention on doing a video for it initially, but it came out so good, we had to do it. I'm so grateful to Al Jourgensen for singing on the track with Wayne. Ministry was a big influence on us, and I know Wayne would've been just as stoked as I am to have Al sing on one of our records. I think the video fits the song really well. It's dark, creepy, with just a touch of humor." - TONY CAMPOS

Project Regeneration Vol 1 debuted at #2 on Billboards Current Rock Albums chart, missing #1 by less than 500 units. The album has been widely praised by fans and critics. Loudwire called the album “one of the best releases of their career”, Consequence of Sound said it is “hard-hitting, gritty, industrial metal at its finest” and legendary writer Dom Lawson said the album is “perfectly paced and full of dynamic peaks and valleys”. He continued “Project Regeneration is a genuinely great album”. The album followed a highly successful 2019 tour, which featured a virtually SOLD out 20th Anniversary world tour of the reunited original Wisconsin Death Trip band lineup. The first pressing, limited edition vinyl has sold out and the 2nd limited edition pressing is now available for pre-order along with merch and other formats at https://static-x.com.

Early Praise for PROJECT REGENERATION VOL. 1:

“One of the best releases of their career” - Loudwire

“Every track is hard hitting, gritty, industrial metal at its finest. Considering that Project Regeneration Vol. 1 was pieced together from demos, it really is a commendable effort. What could seem like a cash grab is far from it. The album is a fully fleshed collection that properly cements Wayne’s legacy.” - Consequence of Sound

“The signature sound of that metallic, disco thumping, modern metal 1-2 punchy dance beat is well placed in almost every track on here, it really is the best of what Static-X is.” – 8/10 - The Rockpit

"There are absolutely no negative views about this album. It's a masterpiece, every single track we've listened to, we've been headbanging, singing along and just imagining what it would be like to witness this madness live on stage." - Rock Lifestyle UK

“Static-X has proved regeneration is not only possible, but thrilling and monumental.” - Brutal Planet Magazine

“A presentation that is without argument, a work that kicks off the second half of 2020 on a high note for the hard rock and metal community. One of the year’s top new hard rock/metal albums overall.” - Phil's Picks

“A must have for fans new and old.” - Metal Anarchy

“'Hollow', 'Terminator Oscillator' and 'All These Years' deserve to be placed in any playlist of the Californians and this is no small feat.” - -CORE

“As electric as it is emotional. “Project Regeneration Vol. 1” undoubtedly carries the essence of a true Static-X album in every imaginable way” - Sonic Perspectives

“A triumphant middle finger from the great ether. There are no weak tracks at all.” - 8/10 - Ghost Cult Magazine

“The band did an excellent job of combining old and new into a compelling album.” - 3.5/5 - Heavy Music HQ

"Static-X new album, Project Regeneration Vol 1. , is nothing short of amazing." - Music Existence

"Despite the fact this record sounds extremely novel, perching itself in the sonic vacuum of the early 00s, it’s acutely fleshed out, cohesive and more importantly, ferociously fun." - 3.7/5 - Sputnik Music

"A BRILLIANT, YET BITTERSWEET ALBUM" - 4/5 - DRIVETRIBE

Static-X Releases Official Music Video for Brand New Song "All These Years," Featuring Vocals by Wayne Static!

Static-X Releases Official Music Video for Brand New Song "All These Years," Featuring Vocals by Wayne Static!

New Official Release Date for Project Regeneration Vol. 1 July 10, 2020!!

Rescheduled Russia & Eastern Europe Tour Dates Announced!!

Platinum-selling International recording artists STATIC-X has released the official music video for "All These Years," the second single off of their upcoming album, Project Regeneration Vol. 1. The song features lead vocals by the legendary late front-man WAYNE STATIC. Directed by Xer0 and co-directed by MATT ZANE, the clip is a campy narrative set in the bedroom of a young WAYNE STATIC back in the 1970’s, who comes face to face with his future rock star self through his black and white television.

The band says that the idea was inspired by the song lyrics for “All These Years”

“It’s very challenging to represent someone in a music video, who is no longer alive, but that was something that we really wanted to do and I think it came out great” says drummer KEN JAY. “These are some of Wayne’s last works, so we really wanted to make this video all about him and to continue to celebrate his life and legacy. What better way to do that than through a fun, fictional story about how Wayne was inspired to become the legend that who he became through STATIC-X.”

The band's 7th studio album, Project Regeneration, was scheduled to be released on May 29th but has been slightly delayed due manufacturing shut downs from the Corona virus. The album will be available across all streaming platforms and physical CD on July 10 and vinyl on August 14, 2020.

"The album is 100% complete," says TONY CAMPOS. "We are just waiting for the manufacturing to resume. We have been given word that all is finally in production, so we are excited to get this out to the fans."

Fans can continue to pre-order / save Project Regeneration online right here.

STATIC-X 2020 tour dates have been rescheduled in Russia and Eastern Europe due to the CV shutdowns.

"Due to the current crisis the, European Summer tour will be postponed. We are working on rescheduling both festival and headline shows and hope to have news for you in the coming weeks."
