STATIC-X Recruits Former DANZIG Drummer

STATIC-X frontman Wayne Static has issued the following update from the road:

"I want to thank everyone who's been coming out to the shows to support us. Almost every show has been sold out so far and we're having a lot of fun out here as usual. Nick [Oshiro, drums] has stayed on tour with us despite his broken hand so he can participate in band appearances and signings. [Fill-in drummer] Will Hunt [TOMMY LEE, DARK NEW DAY, SKRAPE, STUCK MOJO] has done a great job hitting the drums for the past ten days, but he has prior commitments with DARK NEW DAY and VINCE NEIL, so Orlando was his last show. Next up on the drums is Bevan Davies. He's played with JERRY CANTRELL, DANZIG, and COMES WITH THE FALL, and will stay out with us for the next few weeks until Nick has fully recovered.

"For those who can't make it out to see us this time around, don't worry. We're working on summer tour plans and I hope to make an announcement about that very soon."

STATIC-X's latest album, "Cannibal", shifted more than 30,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week of release. This represents a slight drop from the 35,000 tally registered by the band's "Start a War" album, which came out in June 2005 and landed at No. 29.
