Static-X Premiere “Terminator Oscillator” Music Video

Static-X have premiered a new video for their song “Terminator Oscillator.“ The Godzilla-inspired clip was co-directed by Edsel Dope and Matt Zane. The track appears on the band’s latest album “Project Regeneration, Vol. 1.“ The group commented:

“We wanted to do something outside of what you would generally expect to see from a metal band music video. The video really captures the quirky, sci-fi spirit of STATIC-X and is unlike anything that we’ve ever seen from bands in our genre.”

Static-X commented:

“We are so excited to finally get back out on the road. We plan to play most of the songs off of both ‘Machine‘ and ‘Wisconsin Death Trip‘, as well a number of nice surprises that are being incorporated into the set list. It is going to be awesome to have Fear Factory, Dope, & Mushroomhead back out on the road with us to share in all of this nostalgic insanity.

All in all, this package is going to be one for the ages and we can’t wait to get out there and celebrate 20 years of our ‘Machine‘ record, while we continue to remember all of the good times that we had with Wayne and to share it live and loud with all of our fans night after night.”

Fear Factory‘s Dino Cazares continued:

“I’m beyond excited to finally turn the Fear Factory machine back on and start crushing stages alongside our longtime friends in Static-X.”

Dope‘s Edsel Dope added:

“We are honored to be part of this tour. Static-X, Fear Factory, & Dope toured together back in 1999. It was the first time that we all met, and it laid the foundation for all of the tours that Dope and Static have done together. I can’t wait to get back out there and get crazy with all the fans!”

Dino Cazares Says Fear Factory Are “Talking About” Doing A World Tour With Static-X

During an interview with Overdrive, Dino Cazares revealed that Fear Factory and Static-X are “talking about” doing a world tour together. He said the following about that:

“We’re hoping we get to do a world tour and Tony [Campos] can do ‘double duty’ for each show. We’re hoping to work things out and take this package tour around the world. At the moment, we’re talking about it, so no promises just yet, but it’s definitely something that I think the fans would really want to see. It would be a dream to make this happen. If Tony couldn’t do it and was tied up with Static-X, then we would have a cool fill-in. I spoke to Matt DeVries [Chimaira], and hopefully he’ll be able to fill in. Matt toured with us before in the past during ‘The Industrialist’ era. He’s a really great guy.”

Static-X Premiere “Dead Souls” Music Video

Static-X have premiered a new video for their song “Dead Souls.“ The track, which features Ministry‘s Al Jourgensen, is from the band’s latest album “Project Regeneration, Vol. 1.“ Tony Campos commented:

“This song has become one of my favorite tracks on the record. We had no intention on doing a video for it initially, but it came out so good, we had to do it. I’m so grateful to Al Jourgensen for singing on the track with Wayne. Ministry was a big influence on us, and I know Wayne would’ve been just as stoked as I am to have Al sing on one of our records. I think the video fits the song really well. It’s dark, creepy, with just a touch of humor.”

Tony Campos On The Possibility Of Static-X Continuing After The “Project Regeneration” Cycle: “It’s Up To The Fans”

“I don’t know. We’ll see. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. I’m not opposed to it. I still wanna go do other things. I’d love to work with MINISTRY again. I’d love to play with the Cavalera brothers [Max and Igor] again. I’m working on an ASESINO record. It’s up to the fans. If they wanna see us continue on as doing this with Xer0, then yeah. It’s up to them.”
