Former Static-X Guitarist Rejoins The Band

STATIC-X have confirmed the re-joining of guitarist Koichi Fukuda back to the band. An update by frontman Wayne Static is as follows:

"I am very excited to announce that former Static-X guitarist Koichi Fukuda has rejoined the band. Koichi was with us back in the club days here in Los Angeles, played on our first record, Wisconsin Death Trip, and did the first two years of touring with the band. He's been in the studio with us since October working on the new record and this feels like a very natural transition. The first shows with Koichi will be at the Galaxy in Santa Ana on March 25th and at the Key Club in Hollywood on March 26th. We'll be releasing details very soon about more extensive touring plans as well as the title and release date for the new record. Tony, Nick, and I want to thank all of you for your continued support...you guys have never let us down. Thanks! -Wayne Static"

Carlitos Glassjaw is not best band in the world... and you obviously have not listened to Wisconsin Death Trip, which was Static-X first album, and their best album. Hopefully the old guitarist will bring back some of the same chemistry that produced WDT.

Glassjaw is the best band out there? You must live in a bomb shelter. Really, I'd shoot myself if Glassjaw was as good as I could get. Christ, they aren't even metal.

Ah yes. If I fronted a band. My name would be "Laser." We'd be cooler than everyone. We wouldn't even have to play any instruments. My name would suffice.

Glassjaw has to be the WORST band ever, and there are so many bands to compete withthat notion, it's not even funny.

Glassjaw sucks. I don't even know how they got inked.

I cant believe thats theres actually a discussion about if Static X is better than GlassJaw......It boggles the mind because they both are so completely differnt from eachother.....It's like comparing a quart of milk to a jump rope, theres no point and it doesnt make sense....

Their completely covering differnt ends of the musical spectrum. I happen to like Glassjaw somewhat better but I've enjoyed a few of Statics songs over the years. Saw em(static-X) live when I was 19 come to think of it, with Sevendust and Down actually, they had just gotten signed....Good show by all three bands.

Back on track

GLASSJAW IS NOT THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD

BUT YOURE JUST AS CLUELESS IF YOU THINK WAYNE STATIC AND CREW ARE SOMEHOW BETTER

Theres some great bands out there that both sides of the discussion are obviously just missing. But you all are titled to your uninformed opinions so resume mud slinging.
