Tony Campos leaves Static-X
2010-08-14 by Jeremy Bentham | 30 Comments

Tony Campos, longtime bassist for industrial metal band Static-X, has left the band.

Frontman Wayne Static announced that the band will be going on indefinite hiatus so he can concentrate on his side project, Pighammer.

Static told Buzz Radio: “I haven’t talked to him about it. He’s been playing a lot of childish games over the last couple of years and dropping little lies here and there about me. Like, he said that I’m doing a record with my wife [former adult-film star Tera Wray] and that’s why Static is on hold. And I was like, ‘C’mon, dude. I’m doing a solo record.’

“I think he’s jealous ’cause I have the hottest wife in the world. Honestly, that’s what I really think.

“But anyway, that’s the situation. I have not officially closed the coffin on Static-X. My plan was to do this solo record and then do another Static-X record. Tony decided he doesn’t wanna do it anymore, so I’m not really sure where that puts things — if Static-X is still gonna be Static-X without him. I think it could be. Right now I’m just kind of focusing on getting my solo record done, which is absolutely awesome. It’s some of the greatest stuff I’ve ever written.

"I’m going back and doing some singing, kind of like I did on [2003's] ‘Shadow Zone’, but it’s still got all the full-on screaming that everyone likes, too. It’s a little more electronic-sounding, kind of like [2001's] ‘Machine’ was — more keyboards and loops. And I’m really excited about it.”

Had no idea these guys were still around. Wisconsin Death Trip ruled but couldn't get into anything after that and gave up after an album or two. They were fun live and Wayne's hair is spec-effing-tacular.

"My wife is hotter than yours" is the "grown-up" equivalent of saying "My dad can beat up your dad"

The other site I interview for did an interview with him and during the whole thing he kept reminding us to refer to him as Mr. Static.

His wife is a pornstar. No matter how pretty she is, everytime he kisses her he's kissing the countless dicks she has ever sucked.

I really doubt someone is jealous of that
