STATIC-X RELEASE GODZILLA INSPIRED MUSIC VIDEO FOR “TERMINATOR OSCILLATOR”

STATIC-X RELEASE GODZILLA INSPIRED MUSIC VIDEO FOR “TERMINATOR OSCILLATOR”

Multi-platinum selling industrial music icons Static-X have released a music video for the song “Terminator Oscillator” from their critically acclaimed 2020 release Project Regeneration Vol. 1. The 2-part album features the final vocal performance of Wayne Static, along with the otiginal Wisconsin Death Trip band lineup. The song has become a fan-favorite and the Godzilla inspired music video was directed by Edsel Dope and co-directed by Matt Zane. The clip follows a giant X-faced monster wreaking havoc on an entire city, while chasing down the members of Static-X. The video for “Terminator Oscillator” can be seen here: https://youtu.be/FqZG3iyc4Pc.

“We wanted to do something outside of what you would generally expect to see from a metal band music video. The video really captures the quirky, Sci- Fi spirit of Static-X and is unlike anything that we’ve ever seen from bands in our genre,” explains Static-X.

Static-X will bring more of their self-proclaimed “Evil Disco” to the masses with their Rise Of The Machine North American Tour 2022. The 37-date run kicks off on February 21st in Portland, OR and runs over 5 weeks wrapping up on April 3rd in San Francisco, CA. Joining the touring Static-X lineup of Tony Campos, Koichi Fukuda, Ken Jay, and Xer0, will be fellow industrial metal pioneers Fear Factory and Dope, along with special guests Mushroomhead and Twiztid (appearing on select dates). More information on tickets, meet & greets and other VIP experiences for the Rise Of The Machine tour can be found at: www.Static-X.com.

The 20th-anniversary release of Machine – scheduled for February 18, 2022 – features newly remastered audio by Ulrich Wild and features all 12 tracks from the original release, as well as 3 new bonus tracks: “Wisconsin Death Trip (Live 2019 Regeneration featuring Wayne Static),” “Sweat of the Bud (Live 2019 Xer0)” and “I’m With Stupid (Live 2019 Regeneration featuring Wayne Static).” Originally released in 2001, Machine would ultimately turn out to be the last album recorded by the 4 original members of Static-X.  All of the lead vocals and guitars on Machine were performed by Wayne Static, while bass, backing vocals, drums, and programming contributions came from founding members Tony Campos, Ken Jay, & Koichi Fukuda. The limited-edition release will have packaging featuring fully reimagined artwork and will be available in multiple configurations including multiple color vinyl sequenced on 2 discs, with an etching of the Static-X Shock symbol on side D.
