Update Regarding Project Regeneration Volume 1

Project Regeneration (Volume 1) is the record that we have been promising for some time now. It is set for release on May 29, 2020. It is a full length album, containing 12 new tracks, most of which will feature lead vocals by Wayne Static.

Under normal circumstances, the next album would have simply had its own title and there would be no confusion. However, due to the fact this large collection of songs are the final works featuring Wayne, we wanted to release them under the same title.

Volume 2 is still in the process of being recorded and does not yet have a release date.

You will be able to pre order Volume 2 in the future, but please also understand that you are under NO obligation to purchase Volume 2. It is a totally separate release. We will share song clips and teasers for Volume 2 at the appropriate time. There are no additional changes to the existing pre-order.

Again, we appreciate everyone’s involvement and excitement around this very unique and special chapter of Static-X.

Below are some quotes from the band about how all of this transpired.

“We have been working on a lot of material over the last year and a half and while selecting the songs to move into the final mix phase, it became clear that there is just too much material and too little time for this to be a single album.” Says drummer Ken Jay.

“The last thing that we wanted to do was make the fans wait any longer.” Adds Tony Campos. “We also didn’t want to abandon the remaining material, because it is very close to being complete and we know that the fans are going to want to be able to hear and experience all of it. We also recognize that all of this music is part of the same body of work, which marks this very important chapter of STATIC-X, so it is only logical to release all of the music under the same banner, PROJECT REGENERATION.”

In total, PROJECT REGENERATION Volume 1 & 2 will consist of more than 20 brand new / unreleased Static-X songs and will feature all of the remaining works left behind by Wayne Static, along with the original Wisconsin Death Trip band lineup. The individual albums are expected to contain creative packaging elements that will allow fans to marry the 2 volumes together.

“Right now we are finalizing the mixes for the first batch of songs, which will appear on Volume 1, while we continue to finish up the tracking for the rest of the music, which will appear on Volume 2. Volume 1 will be released at the end of May and the goal is to release Volume 2 as soon as possible.” says Ken Jay.
