STATIC on the upcoming tour:
“2014 has been an awesome year! We just finished up the 15th anniversary Wisconsin Death Trip tour. I’ve got the best band behind me that I’ve ever had, and I am very excited to round out the year with a co-headline tour with Powerman 5000. It’s another 15th anniversary tour! It’s a testament to both bands that we are both still going strong and the timing is perfect for us to tour together again. I am equally excited to share the stage with American Head Charge again. I believe it was 2005 when we toured together last. This is a great line up and this tour is gonna kill!”
About Wayne Static:
WAYNE STATIC is the enigmatic former frontman and namesake of Static-X, now forging a successful solo career. WAYNE STATIC is considered the Terminator of contemporary rock music with his signature blunt-force-trauma melding of industrial rock, thrash metal, and futuristic disco, which is nothing if not cybernetic. But when you look back at WAYNE STATIC’s 15-year legacy, the comparison goes beyond the music; having weathered musical trends, survived lineup shifts, and even severed long-time creative partnerships to emerge as a streamlined metallic machine.
WAYNE STATIC Lineup:
Wayne Static- Guitar / Lead VOX
Ashes – Lead Guitarist
Frankie Sil – Bassist / BV
Bevan Davies – Drummer
About Powerman 5000:
Armed with giant hooks and crowd-empowering choruses, Powerman 5000 deliver the electroshocked power-anthems that only Spider One and his merry band of musical superheroes can pull off on Builders Of The Future, their first album with T-Boy Records. The platinum selling band conquered rock radio and built a career in the underground, embodying the very title of one of their most enduring and ubiquitous hits, “When Worlds Collide” and sorta upending the sentiment implied by “Nobody’s Real.” Because these guys are real, crating only the most authentic music they can.
Powerman 5000 has created a culture around their band. Part of the appeal is the way Powerman 5000 pilfers through the most exciting elements of schlocky pop culture, bridging the gap between dance clubs, Comic-Con and the Vans Warped Tour. But there’s something even grander in play with songs like “You’re Gonna Love It, If You Like It Or Not,” “How To Be A Human” and “I Can’t F-cking Hear You” from Builders Of The Future, something that was also present in their biggest hits: a spirit of community.
Powerman 5000 Lineup:
Spider One – Vocals
Rich Jazmin – Lead Guitar
Nick ‘Sci55ors’ Quijano – Rhythm Guitar
Gustavo Aued – Bass
DJ Rattan – Drums
