STATIC-X frontman Wayne Static recently revealed plans for the group to enlist some very special guests to appear the band's third full-length album, due next summer.
"I asked Dimebag Darrell of PANTERA to do a lead on the record and asked Aaron from STAIND to sing on a song," Static told Metal Hammer magazine. "Whether all this happens or not, it's all speculation."
Wayne also indicated that the forthcoming CD would be very different from the band's previous outings.
"Since Machine was a lot heavier than our first record, Wisconsin Death Trip, the third record will go the other way," Static joked. "It's gonna be all acoustic love ballads. We kept our integrity last time, so next time we're totally gonna sell out — it'll all be radio hits. We have to keep the radio people happy, too… just like the hardcore metalheads. We have a lot of people to keep happy.
"We're going to take the rest of the year off to write," Wayne added. "It's not easy to write acoustic love ballads, We're gonna have to work really hard to write all those acoustic songs… buy some acoustic guitars."
