STATIC-X Taps DARK NEW DAY/VINCE NEIL Drummer For Current Tour

STATIC-X has tapped drummer Will Hunt (TOMMY LEE, DARK NEW DAY, SKRAPE, STUCK MOJO) to fill in for the group's regular skinsman Nick Oshiro while he is recovering from a broken hand. Hunt's first show with STATIC-X took place Friday night (April 13) in Houston, Texas.

In addition to being a member of DARK NEW DAY, Will Hunt has been playing select dates with MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil. Hunt is no stranger to MÖTLEY CRÜE, having substituted a tendonitis-suffering Tommy Lee last year for some shows on the CRÜE's "Carnival of Sins" tour. He previously toured the world playing drums in Tommy Lee's solo band.

"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.
