STATIC-X Cancels Remaining 'Noise Revolution Tour' Dates

STATIC-X has been forced to cancel the remaining dates of its 2012 "Noise Revolution Tour" following last night's (Saturday, October 6) final show in Flint, Michigan. According to a press release, the band's frontman, Wayne Static, "must return to Los Angeles and prepare for some medical procedures to remedy problems that have been hampering his performance."

Says Wayne: "I'm so sorry to all my fans but I cant give you the 1000% you deserve from STATIC-X every night right now. Evil disco will continue in 2013. Just wait until you see what's next!!!"

EMMURE and ILL NIÑO — who were providing support on the "Noise Revolution Tour"— will continue with the currently scheduled dates.

STATIC-X's next performances will take place in Lancaster, California on October 27 and om Ventura, California on October 28.

Affected tour dates (Note: EMMURE and ILL NIÑO will still be playing these shows):

Oct. 07 - Portage, IN @ Camelot Arena
Oct. 09 - Fayetteville, AR @ George's Majestic Theater
Oct. 11 - Shreveport, LA @ Riverside Warehouse
Oct. 12 - Little Rock, AR @ Downtown Music Hall
Oct. 13 - Dallas, TX @ Palladium Ballroom
Oct. 15 - Farmington, NM @ Top Deck
Oct. 17 - Lubbock, TX @ Cactus Courtyard

Bassist Brent Ashley left STATIC-X last month. His final show with the band took place on September 1 at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California. He wrote on his Facebook page, "[I] wish things would have ended differently, but I'm very excited for what the future will bring." He added on Twitter, "Being the professional that I am, I won't call anyone out or point fingers as to why I left. But, if ya meet me in person … feel free to ask."

Original STATIC-X bassist Tony Campos — who is currently on the road with SOULFLY — issued a statement in July indicating that he had "no interest in working with [STATIC-X frontman] Wayne Static, now, or anytime in the foreseeable future."

Regarding his decision to resurrect STATIC-X, Wayne said, "I really just wanted to go back to old-school STATIC-X since the band has been gone for a few years. The last tour I was on I did a lot of my solo stuff, and I'm ready to get back to old-school STATIC-X stuff, which is actually new again."

STATIC-X's recent trek marked the band's first outing since they announced a hiatus in 2009.
