STATIC-X: New Album Title, Release Date Announced

Los Angeles-based metal quartet STATIC-X has set "Cult of Static" as the title of its sixth studio album, due on March 17, 2009 via Reprise Records. The CD will include a new version of the song "Lunatic" (which originally appeared on the soundtrack release to "Punisher: War Zone") featuring a guest guitar solo by MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine. A national tour in support the album will commence in early April.

"Love Dump", the new video from STATIC-X, can be viewed below. The clip comes off group's new DVD and CD, "Cannibal Killers Live", which was released on October 14 via Reprise Records. The DVD was shot during a show in Spokane, Washington on June 2, 2007, shortly after the release of the band's latest studio album, "Cannibal". The 17-song set compiled from the tour includes material from STATIC-X's entire 14-year career, showcasing old favorites like "Push It" and "Bled For Days", along with newer songs from "Cannibal", like the album single "Destroyer" and everything in between. A complete video history is also included in the special package, with every video STATIC-X has ever made, along with an audio CD of the concert (track listing below). In addition, a limited-edition package was released that includes a bonus DVD featuring the band's 1997 concert at Hollywood's famous Whiskey A Go-Go club, which was recorded two years prior to the release of STATIC-X's platinum-selling debut "Wisconsin Death Trip".

"Cannibal", which was released April 3, 2007, debuted at Number 36 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart, selling more than 30,000 its first week out. The album has gone on to sell more than 160,000 copies, solidifying the band's place as one of the metal's pre-eminent artists.

STATIC-X is Wayne Static (vocals, guitar, programming), Tony Campos (bass, backing vocals), Koichi Fukuda (lead guitar, keyboards, programming) and Nick Oshiro (drums).
