Static-X Wisconsin Death Trip at Marquee Theatre

June 18 @ 6:00 pm - 11:30 pm

STATIC-X is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their seventh studio album, entitled Project Regeneration. The album will feature 12 brand new STATIC-X tracks and contains several vocal performances and musical compositions by Wayne Static, along with a handful of high-profile guest vocal contributions.

As announced, the original STATIC-X lineup introduced on their 1999 platinum-selling debut full-length album, Wisconsin Death Trip – bassist Tony Campos, guitarist Koichi Fukuda and drummer Ken Jay – have joined forces once again to release a new album, Project Regeneration. The band has cultivated a treasure chest of vocal performances and musical compositions left behind by Wayne. Along with the help of STATIC-X‘s long-time producer Ulrich Wild, the band is in the process of completing the album now.

A new teaser featuring clips from a brand new music video, as well as five new STATIC-X tracks – “Road To Hell”, “Something Of My Own”, “Terminator Oscillator”, “Hollow” and “Disco Otsego” – along with a personal message from bassist Tony Campos about the inspiration behind Project Regeneration, is available to view now at www.static-x.org.

For the unfinished tracks, the band is inviting several of their friends to lend their voices for the completion of this very personal project. The guest vocalist curation process is being led by none other than SiriusXM programming pioneer Jose Mangin, who is working alongside the band as one of the executive producers for Project Regeneration.

STATIC-X has created a pre-order campaign allowing fans who purchase Project Regenerationin advance to have their name appear in the liner notes of the new album. Additional special pre-order package options are also available, including Project Regeneration merch bundles and several old school STATIC-X merch items to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Wisconsin Death Trip.  Pre-orders are available via www.static-x.org
A punishing groove and melodic death metal unit based out of Santa Barbara, California, DevilDriver originally operated under the moniker Deathride, before a copyright issue forced them to adopt a new name. Co-founded by Coal Chambervocalist Dez Fafara, who remains the group lone original member, the band debuted in 2002, but didn’t truly catch fire until the release of 2007’s Last Kind Words, which heralded a string of high-charting albums like Pray for Villains (2009), Winter Kills (2013), and Trust No One (2016). Despite enduring numerous personnel shifts, the band maintained a lean, loud, and punitive sonic attack that made them one of the more reliable heavy music purveyors of the 2000s and 2010s.

Following the dissolution of his Marilyn Manson/Korn-influenced nu-metal band Coal Chamber, vocalist Dez Fafarahooked up with guitarists Evans Pitts and Jeffrey Kendrick, bassist Jon Miller, and drummer John Boecklin to form DevilDriver — a rather more extreme band dedicated to the subsequent hardcore-meets-death-metal trends. Signed to Roadrunner like Fafara‘s previous group, DevilDriver released their eponymous debut in 2003, followed a sophomore effort, The Fury of Our Maker’s Hand (where Pitts was replaced by Mike Spreitzer), a couple years later. 2007’s Last Kind Wordswas the group’s first outing to crack the Billboard 200, but they got their day in the sun when their 2009 album, Pray for Villains, debuted at number 35 and found success in Europe as well. After touring with groups like Behemoth and SlipknotDevilDriver went back into the studio to begin work on their fifth album. the resulting Beast, produced by Mark Lewis, was released in 2011, and would be their last album to feature longtime bassist Jon Miller. The band would team up with Lewis again for its next album, Winter Kills, their highest-charting LP to date, which arrived in the summer of 2013 via Napalm Records. 2014 saw the departures of drummer John Boecklin and guitarist Jeff Kendrick, which prompted Fafara to put the band on hiatus until 2016. The group did indeed resurface that year, releasing its seventh studio album, Trust No One, which would be the first DevilDriver outing for three new members, ex-Chimaira drummer Austin D’Amond, guitarist Neal Tiemann, and ex-Static-X bassist Diego Ibarra. In 2018, Fafara, a longtime fan of outlaw country, fulfilled his ambition to unite the genre with metal on DevilDriver‘s eighth album, Outlaws ’til the End, Vol. 1. A collection of covers of classics of the genre refashioned in the band’s inimitable powerhouse style, it featured guest vocals from several metal and country artists including Randy BlytheBrock LindowBurton C. BellJohn Carter Cash, and Hank Williams III.

An uncompromising New York City-based outfit that draws from both heavy metal and industrial music, Dope‘s confrontational emissions evoke MinistrySkinny Puppy, and White Zombie. Emerging in 1999 with the hard-hitting Felons and Revolutionaries, the group continued to beat the post-industrial drum on 2005’s American Apathy and 2018’s Blood Money, Part 1, while managing to weave in elements of speed, alternative, rap, and nu-metal.The quintet was formed in the Chicago area by brothers Edsel Dope (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Simon Dope(keyboards). Simon studied chemistry at the University of Florida, then received a scholarship to Polytechnic in Brooklyn. There he was joined by his brother, with the two claiming to have financed their demos by selling drugs. The initial incarnation of the band included lead guitarist Tripp Eisen, bass player Acey Slade, and drummer Preston Nash. They began a selective series of gigs in late 1997. In October 1998, they were signed to Flip Records, which made a production deal with Epic.

Dope‘s debut album and best-selling release to date, Felons and Revolutionaries, was released in September 1999. The Dope brothers gutted their lineup after the ensuing tour, switching Slade to guitar and bringing in original bassist Sloane Jentry, guitarist Virus, and drummer Sketchy Shay. In the fall of 2001, they released their second album, Life. Two years later, the band inked a deal with Artemis and issued the nu-metal-leaning Group Therapy. The punitive American Apathy arrived in summer 2005, featuring covers of Depeche Mode‘s “People Are People” and N.W.A‘s “Fuck tha Police.” It topped the Billboard Heatseekers chart upon release. No Regrets was issued four years later, and featured a guest appearance by Zakk Wylde. After an extended hiatus, Dope‘s classic lineup returned with a new album and coinciding tour. The band — Edsel DopeAcey SladeVirus, and Racci Shay — released Blood Money, Pt. 1 in late 2016, with a sequel, the aptly-named Blood Money, Pt. 2, arriving in 2019.

Musician and horror aficionado Joseph Poole embarked on his career in music in 1992 with Maniac Spider Trash. He left the group in 1996 and formed Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 with fellow “Spider Trashers” Abby Normaland Sicko Zero. The band managed to release five full-length albums and six EPs over the span of five years before calling it quits in 2003 as a result of Poole‘s rising success with his Murderdolls side project. In 2004, Poole began recording under the moniker Wednesday 13, releasing the EP 6 Years, 6 Feet Under the Influence. It was followed in 2005 by the full-length Transylvania 90210: Songs of Death, Dying, and the Dead. In May 2006, Wednesday 13 put out a six-CD/DVD box set called Little Box of Horrors, followed by Fang Bang later that September. The significantly heavier and darker Skeletons dropped in 2008, followed by the equally brooding Calling All Corpses in 2011. The Dixie Dead, the project’s fifth studio long-player, arrived in 2013, followed by Monsters of the Universe: Come Out and Plague(2015) and Condolences (2017), the latter of which was the group’s first outing for Nuclear Blast.

“raven black – a visciously sweet metal medley of feminine and masculine power harnessed through a tiny half human | half doll surrounded by her misfits, tossed into a theatrical debauchery of creepy fun and that’s just the beginning.” There is a story here, but you have to take the journey to the 13th hour where these 4 live.”
