Static X With New Singer

STATIC-X has announced that their warehouse space. which is also shared with DOPE, was recently robbed of nearly $200,000 worth of touring equipment during the coronavirus lockdown.

STATIC-X wrote in a post: “We want to encourage our community to keep a close eye on your property and on your facilities during this unprecedented time… We also ask for our fans to keep an eye out for the stolen items and maybe we can help the police find these people.”

Drummer Ken Jay said: “With most of us in lockdown, and those who aren’t locked down, wearing masks in public, apparently it’s a great time to be a thief.”

STATIC-X has released a list of stolen equipment here, complete with many of the serial numbers.

DOPE singer Edsel Dope, who is also rumored to be new STATIC-X frontman Xer0 said: “This is tough one to swallow. Our bands are small businesses that have developed and refined our touring systems over years. The amount of time and effort that has gone into building out the tech and AV production alone is hard to quantify. It’s a lot of money. We own all of our own gear and have built our touring business through years of continuous investment back into ourselves.”

STATIC-X will release highly anticipated 7th studio album, Project Regeneration on May 29, 2020.
