They kicked off their Wisconsin Death Trip/Wayne Static Memorial Tour throughout America this week before heading down to Australia in August but it seems like Static-X may be open to more touring after this run and their new album Project Regeneration comes out, but only if the fans want it.
Bassist Tony Campos told our very own Browny in this week’s Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall podcast that he’s not opposed to the idea when the topic of doing anniversary tours for 2001’s Machine or 2003’s Shadow Zone was brought up, to which he revealed:
“We haven’t really thought that far ahead actually. We’re just kinda enjoying the moment, in the now and just like trying to do this [tour] as best as we can and really just enjoy our company again [with original members Ken Jay and Koichi Fukuda]… So when this is all said and done, we’ll see, I mean if it’s something the fans want I’m certainly not opposed to it”
“If it’s something the fans want, we’ll definitely keep it in mind for sure” – Tony Campos on Static-X doing more anniversary tours in future years
But, as he mentioned it all comes down to the fans who (not surprisingly) have been more than supportive of the band’s reunion, tour plans/decisions and album making process (which was all crowd-funded mind you). It really comes down to what they want and if they’re keen to “push it” and see these original members back together again with their infamously illusive frontman, then it could be a reality.
