After years of tumultuous relationships between himself and the former members of Static-X, frontman Wayne Static officially declared the band as “done.”
Static confirmed the official disbandment of the group on June 7, 2013 in an interview with The Gauntlet, citing the band’s end to be related to his disputes with former band members, specifically with former bassist Tony Campos.
Static explained his relationship with Campos in the interview:
“The last e-mail Tony sent me, he said he hopes we never have to talk again. And I said, ‘Believe me, this is the last you’ll ever hear from me.’ And that’s the way we left. And it sucks. I think it’s sad that things have to end that way. And it happens to a lot of bands … Static-X is done. The end. No more Static-X".
Wayne Static had continued Static-X with a new lineup in 2012, but the Noise Revolution Tour was the group’s final major tour before dissolving. The band originally broke up in 2011, but reformed in 2012, though Wayne Static was the only original member.
No new projects from Static are currently revealed, though the former frontman did release a solo album, Pighammer, in 2011. Tony Campos currently plays bass in Prong and Soulfly.
my 14 year old self would be devo right now
he and his hair should start an electronic funk duo side project together
Digging: Magnolia Electric Co - Trials and Errors
Actually I liked this band, but after cult of static they were dead. So that was the best choice.
Yeah this is long overdue

THIS IS THE ONLY

LOVE DUMP AGH
Thought they broke up along time ago
Up to Start A War were pretty good. Static needs to grow up and stop spiking his hair up now he's balding though. Wasn't he planning on a tour where they were gonna play Wisconsin Death Trip in full? Guess people weren't coming to shows without Tony in the band so Wayne got desperate but, clearly, Tony wasn't interested. He's in half a million bands right now anyway (Soulfly, Prong, Asesino, finishing up the last ever ever no seriously this time final ever no more after this Ministry album, etc.) so has no reason to go back.
bout time and scoots comment made me lol
But what will happen to Skinnyman
Digging: Das EFX - Dead Serious

looks like ill have to make a new email address now. rip StaticXFan1995@gmail.com
I actually liked some of their stuff... eh, whatever. What's done is done
They haven't released anything good for like 13 years and even their good stuff was iffy.
Everything about Static-X was Wayne Static, he was the face of that band and everything about him should stay like forever since he doesn't lookthat way just a few weeks or months, he looks like that for more than a decade, can you imagine it? He is what he is, he is just static. I wish him a good luck and I hope I will hear him on some new project. The best would be if he could create a new band.
Static's saying it's cos Tony owns half the name Static-X (which helps prove my theory that it was an amalgamation of their stage names Wayne Static and Maldito-X) and he was paying Tony for the ability to use the name and tour with it but because he got a hernia he couldn't pay Tony. Shame it's ended with mudslinging.
terrible band lol
Not terrible but it was time indeed
Just like it's time for Metallica
The last 2 albums (and the solo album) sounded phoned in, like a band trying to sound like Static-X, but without the spark that made Static-X any good. I held out hope for a return to form, but I guess we're just left with a band puttering out and dying.
Actually I found cannibal as a decent album with a lot of energy, chemical logic and no submission are highlights of that album
Always thought of these guys as a gimmick
Not really surprised.
Never liked this band. Good riddance.
Band has always sucked hard

i've always enjoyed static-x. such a long solid run. bummer it had to end like this. i watched a video w/ wayne and his woman about this and it seemed very yoko-ish
Digging: Buzzov-en - Sore
I honestly thought that they were already done...
Also, I always thought the hair was stupid.
Only Wisconsin... and Machine were worth listening to, anyway.
The hair was to blame. It possessed Wayne Static's mind and forced him to act like a douche.
band was the bomb at a point in time
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
"my 14 year old self would be devo right now"
WDP middle school jamz 4ever. and too bad that they also showed promise during Cannibal, but Static and his ego fucked everything as usual.
Wisconsin Death Trip!
Digging: Mansions - Doom Loop
I thought this band died about 10 or so years ago. Never listened to any of their songs.
Oh wow, never knew this until now
Didn't care much for the band anyway, that Wayne guy's voice was annoying as hell
Liked Shadow Zone a lot.
what a disappointment
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU GOTTA BE FUCKIN KIDDING!!
