Shadow Zone


Static-X was formed in 1994 from the ashes of Wayne Static and Ken Jay's former band, Deep Blue Dream. After searching for members in Chicago, United States, Static and Jay decided to go to Los Angeles to continue their search. There they met Tony Campos, from the Mexican death metal band Asesino, and Koichi Fukuda, completing the band's original lineup. Static-X signed with Warner Brothers Records in early 1998.

The band's debut album, Wisconsin Death Trip, was released March 23, 1999. Notable songs from the album include Push It, I'm With Stupid, Bled for Days, and Fix. Static-X's touring schedule in support of the album included two Ozzfest stints. The following year saw the release of the little-known EP The Death Trip Continues, and the band contributed the song "Otsegolation" to the PlayStation video game Omega Boost. Push It also appeared on the Playstation video games Street Skater 2 & Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes.

After recording their follow-up album Machine, guitarist Koichi Fukuda left the band to spend time with his family and pursue other musical opportunities. Tripp Eisen, formerly of Dope, stepped in as Fukuda's replacement. Machine was released May 22, 2001.

Static-X quickly began work on their third album Shadow Zone, this time with Eisen performing and writing on the album. Before they started recording, however, Ken Jay left the band due to "political differences." Josh Freese of A Perfect Circle was brought in to drum on the album, and Nick Oshiro, formerly of Seether, was later selected as Jay's replacement. Shadow Zone was released October 7, 2003, and July 20, 2004 saw the release of Beneath... Between... Beyond..., a collection of rarities and demos. Later that year, Wayne did guest vocals on the Skinny Puppy song Use Less.

Shortly after the release of Beneath... Between... Beyond..., the band commenced work on their fourth studio album, Start a War. In February of 2005, Tripp Eisen was arrested in a sex scandal involving minors, and was fired from Static-X shortly after. Former guitarist Koichi Fukuda, who had been mixing the new album, rejoined Static-X to fill the vacancy left by Eisen. Start a War was released June 14, 2005.

Cannibal, released April 3, 2007, marked the studio return of their original guitarist, Koichi Fukuda.

One of the new tracks called No Submission is available on the Saw III Soundtrack. The full track has also been released on Static-X's MySpace page. Cannibal was released as a digital download single at iTunes. Destroyer will be the lead off radio single later in February, before the album's release. Videos for the single songs were supposed to be taken at the same time. A promotional Cannibal EP has also been released. The EP contains album versions of Cannibal, No Submission, and a radio edit version of Forty Ways.

Their 6th studio album, Cult of Static, was released on March 19, 2009. The album debuted at #36 in the U.S. with sales of over 30,000.

In June of 2010 Wayne Static revealed that Tony Campos is no longer a member of the band.
