Static-X Announce “Wisconsin Death Trip” 20th Anniversary Tour With DevilDriver & Dope

Static-X’s classic lineup, Tony Campos, Koichi Fukuda, and Ken Jay, will be paying tribute to the late Wayne Static with a “Wisconsin Death Trip” 20th anniversary tour. DevilDriver will co-headline the trek and Dope will serve as support along with other artists TBA. Static-X will be playing a majority of “Wisconsin Death Trip“ with guest vocalists.

Campos said the following:

“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 with the fans.”

Fukuda added:

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

Jay continued:

“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. This 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 commented as well:

“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!”
