Static-X Frontman Announces "Pighammer" Solo Album Details

Static-X frontman Wayne Static has announced that he will be releasing a new solo album, titled "Pighammer," on October 4, 2011 through Dirthouse Records. You can view the album's track listing below. Wayne Static commented on the album's theme by saying;

"The Pighammer concept conjures up bizarre images. It’s about a mad plastic surgeon, with a pig fetish, that likes to convert hot chicks into pigs. It is the total opposite if what a plastic surgeon would do. He has this crazy hammer device made from a pig foot. The images of the surgery in the CD package are only a dark comedic visualization of the real theme of the album, which is my transformation."

I listened to the sample on another site and am looking forward to hearing the rest. It seems like an opportunity for him to stretch out and be more creative. Curious to see what Wayne has in him.

Static x seems to have a new line up with every album release anyway. Good live band especially in club venues.

Makes sense to me
Luv the incorporation of " women" and "pigs"
Texas chainsaw massacre on audio anyone?
I ll give it a spin, but X needs to regroup, they had some great live shows
be awesome if he takes this "act" on the road..
I see wayne coming on stage with a white butchers smock on covered in pigs blood with yellow hard hat, a black bandana around his mouth and his guitar replicating a chainsaw or drill, on stage u have dead babies hanging on meathooks like that one beattles lp cover,the entire band wearing wearing same attire as wayne, and the show consists of smoke machines, red lights, barrels of spoiled pig/ beef gutts and women dressed in pink tight colored bikins and using giant meathooks as stripper polls..throw in a few midgets and wild boars in cages on stage and u got a show..
This is what happends when u dont have sh!t to do on a saturday nite,
