Static-X, DevilDriver, and Dope announce North American tour

Dates for Static-X’s North American tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of the group’s debut record Wisconsin Death Trip and the memory of late frontman Wayne Static are now available. The tour will feature the original lineup on the album: Tony Campos on bass, Ken Jay on drums, and Koichi Fukuda on guitar. A fill-in vocalist for the trek has yet to be revealed. DevilDriver will be co-headlining the tour, performing a full set each night as well. Dope will be providing support along with other acts, which will be announced at a later date.

Campos said of the tour:

“Our intention is to pay ultimate respect to Wayne and to celebrate the music that has been in all of our hearts for more than 20 years. It’s all about channeling the vibe from 1999 to the best of our ability and playing those classic Static-X songs live and loud.”

Fukuda adds:

“Rehearsals have been awesome! The music and the vocals are sounding really great! I feel like Wayne would be proud.”

Jay said:

“We understand that people are naturally going to want to know more about who is singing. We have discussed this at great length and we came to the conclusion that at this time, it would be inappropriate for us to put the focus on anyone other than Wayne, Tony, Koichi, and myself. It feels like the best way for us to celebrate Wayne’s legacy, along with the 20th anniversary of Wisconsin Death Trip, with all of our fans.”

DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara also commented, offering:

“For those who don’t know, I am the one who first discovered Static-X back in the day in a small club in front of about 40 people! From that moment forward, I was and have always been a fan of what they do. It’s unique and will always hold a special place musically for me.

Co-headlining this first memorial tour is not only a way to pay homage to Wayne, but something I’m very excited to do. Static-X will be closing the show each night out of respect for Wayne. I’ll be there nightly, side stage, watching the unit do their thing with a big smile. I hope that Wayne will be there in spirit, watching as his brothers pay respect by bringing this music back to the fans that made the band so massive! I know he would have loved this!

Don’t miss out and grab tickets before these dates sell out! DevilDriver will have a full headlining set and we are throwing in some ‘surprises’, so get ready to get LOCO! If there was ever a time for me to break out Coal Chamber tracks, this would be the tour to do it on… we will also add new stuff from DevilDriver before our double record comes out in late summer! Come join us for the summer tour of a lifetime!” 

Dope will also be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut effort, Felons And Revolutionaries. Bandleader Edsel Dope said:

“We are super excited to be part of this tour. Dope and Static-X played hundreds of shows together back in 1999 and 2000, so it’s an honor to be able to run it back 20 years later.
