Static-X Vocalist revealed

2019-10-09 by Toondude | 20 Comments
After several months of speculating, the vocalist for Static-X has officially been revealed as Brian Charles Ebejer, also known professionally as Edsel Dope, the vocalist for fellow nu-metal/industrial band Dope. The reveal was due to Dope's neck tattoo that was exposed on a photograph of "Xer0" during the band's 20th Anniversary tour of Wisconsin Death Trip.

Dope will be the band's new frontman for the remainder of the tour, and with provide some lead vocals for the band's upcoming album, Project Regeneration. The album will mostly feature unfinished tracks and voice samples of the late vocalist Wayne Static, who passed away in 2014.

It was only rumored, this is now a confirmation.
I'm not exactly jazzed about Edsel, he fucking sucks compared to Wayne.

Just rename the band, for pete's sake. It's not Static-X without Wayne.

I went to the tour and I know this is what everyone thought, but I’m kinda surprised. He sucked during Dope’s set but nailed the Static-X vocals.

Yeah if they decide to continue after Project Regeneration is done, they should change their name. Call the group Wisconsin Death Trip - a homage to their debut album, the only album to feature these musicians together, and also, if I remember correctly, the group's name before changing to Static-X.

ya i'm listening to a recent live vid of them and if you close your eyes, edsel does a pretty great job emulating wayne's vocals. they should deff change the band name if they continue on after this album though.

I mean, you’re essentially watching a Static-X cover band now. I don’t think I could muster up the enthusiasm for a piece of a band that hasn’t been relevant for twenty years.

Dope is an awful, awful band. Literally not even one good song.

Dope were doing the cringy, whiny, faux political thing before Machine Head's Catharsis ever came out, by the way. They were doing albums just like and just as bad as Catharsis in the early 2000's.
