Update Issued On Wayne Static's Death

After it was announced yesterday that Wayne Static had passed away, rumors began circulating the cause of death was drug related. Today the following press release was issued by Wayne Static's publicist regarding the situation:

"Today is a sad day in the music industry – Front-man and founding member Wayne Static of Static-X passed away quietly in his sleep at his home last night.

"The couple was getting ready to leave for a Fall/Winter tour this morning. They were to have left the night before on Halloween, but decided they would head out early in the morning November 1st.

"The couple, known for partying heavy, had left hard drugs in 2009 and had not touched them since. Static’s first solo album – Pighammer - was a tribute to his new non-drug life and hoped it would help others to get clean from hard chemical drugs.

"More official information about his passing will be released in the following days. This is not a drug related incident or an O. D. Please be courteous to his family and wife and leave positive messages."

We reported the speculative drug involvement because that was among the very limited information available to us at the time. Nothing is certain yet, so we'll see how this plays out.
