Static-X On Tapping Former Seether Drummer

Launch Radio Networks reports: The new STATIC-X album, "Start a War", features the recording debut of former SEETHER drummer Nick Oshiro, who joined the group on its tour in support of 2003's "Shadow Zone". STATIC-X frontman Wayne Static told Launch that Oshiro's abilities as a live drummer had an impact on the making of "Start a War" as well. "This is actually the first record where we didn't try to fix the drums in the computer or anything like that," he said. "We just recorded the drums with the band, playing live, and the drums are what they are. There's no samples, there's no straightening things out, and I think this record has a real, sort of live STATIC-X feel to it because of that."

"Start a War" arrived in stores on June 14.

STATIC-X has added a batch of new shows to its current tour with AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE and BLOODSIMPLE. New dates include:

Jul. 24 - Rockford, IL - Forrest Hills Lounge
Aug. 04 - Atlantic City, NJ - House Of Blues
Aug. 05 - Baltimore, MD - Sonar
Aug. 07 - Fort Wayne, IN - Piere's
Aug. 08 - Sauget, IL - Pop's
Aug. 09 - Columbia, MO - Blue Note
Aug. 12 - Spokane, WA - Big Easy
Aug. 13 - Boise, ID - Big Easy
Aug. 14 - Seattle, WA - El Corazon
Aug. 15 - Portland, OR - Roseland Theatre

Tripps a done deal. He dug himself a crater he cant get out of.

Fukuda is a very capable guiarist and his influence will be felt on this record as was the case with the first two. More power to him for rejoining his chums.

Always liked static x, the new disc is ok, nothin great. They kind of changed the singing style a little bit, and some of the songs seem kind of watered down.

Well sh**dog if you can tell that yes tripp had some effect on them. But its nothing noticable. I just saw them last night. I'm in jacksonville NC. And may i say that the show was great. But this is the 3rd time i've seen them. Still great. And i'm sure that if they were still having some kind of problem it would be talked about by them. So Cu Nt dog you're a f***InG Idiot
