WAYNE STATIC Embarks On Fall Trek

PIGHAMMER to be released October 4th on DIRTHOUSE RECORDS

WAYNE STATIC will embark on a string of dates this fall in support of his first solo album, PIGHAMMER, releasing October 4th, on Dirthouse Records. STATIC will be accompanied by special guests EYE EMPIRE, KYNG, ONE EYED DOLL and GEMINI SYNDROME. 

STATIC will play select tracks off the new album and a barrage of classic Static-X giving fans the hard driving metal they crave. "I can't wait to get on stage again,” exclaims STATIC. It's been far too long! I know everyone is curious as to what the new show will be like... and it's going to be even a bigger party than before with some fun surprises. I have an awesome new touring band that includes some of the best players in LA. We'll be doing plenty of shots on stage, playing some new songs off "Pighammer," and of course playing a ton of classic Static-X songs. Let the Evil Disco party begin!"

PIGHAMMER has a disarming raw quality of heavy driving guitar riffs and lyrics that will take hold of your bowels and into the mind of STATIC’s dark past and warped mind. This is blatant as the first single Assassins Of Youth, was inspired by WAYNE STATIC’S last days of drugs and partying. “I wrote this song while living in a hotel room, listening to Pink Floyd, drinking Crown and doing whippits,” explains Static. “I started the song in that condition but never finished it until years later after dumping off the drugs. Now the song has a whole new meaning from when I started it.” Assassins Of Youth is an old-school term for drugs. The first verse is about doing drugs, the chorus is going dry and the 2nd chorus is about getting off and no longer being slave to the drugs.

With STATICS transformation, his mind has creatively twisted to a side that he has waited to unleash! “The Pighammer concept conjures up bizarre images,” STATIC explains. “It’s about a mad plastic surgeon, with a pig fetish, that likes to convert hot chicks into pigs. It is the total opposite if what a plastic surgeon would do. He has this crazy hammer device made from a pig foot. The images of the surgery in the CD package are only a dark comedic visualization of the real theme of the album, which is my transformation…”

PIGHAMMER is the bastard child of WAYNE STATICS transformation after a 12 year journey of metal annihilation. “It’s hard to believe that it’s 12 years since the release of "Wisconsin Death Trip," and now my warped musical lunacy will take me down a new path of metal destruction. I'm looking forward to seeing you all on the upcoming fall tour.”
