I am a music enthusiast with a deep love for the energy of crowded venues, loud music, & passionate fans. I have a diverse background that includes private security, talent buying, festival security planning, & media relations. I've also worked as a camera operator for various projects, including music videos featuring notable artists like Bernz, Tech N9ne, & Krizz Kaliko. Additionally, I am a camera operator for Full Moon Features, where I contribute to the production of horror movies.

Get your evil disco horns towards the sky! Static-X, the platinum-selling industrial metal outfit, have officially released their cover of the 1989 ‘Pretty Hate Machine’ classic by Nine Inch Nails, “Terrible Lie”. This new version even features vocals from the band’s late and great frontman, Wayne Static!

This release marks the first time since Static X’s acclaimed LP ‘Project: Regeneration Vol. 1’ that new music has been released featuring Wayne Static’s very own vocals. The song was recorded during the sessions for Static-X’s ‘Cult of Static’ (2009) album. It is an emotional tribute to their beloved former frontman and aims to honor his legacy.

As Static-X’s version of “Terrible Lie” is a heavier and more powerful interpretation of the classic track. The up-tempo drums and dark synths give it a sinister edge, while Wayne Static’s powerful growls remain as captivating as ever.

The impending release of ‘Project Regeneration Vol. 2’ marks a defining moment for Static-X’s collective career; it will be the last album to contain Wayne Static tracks. Making this upcoming LP bittersweet for fans, knowing that this era of the group has come to an end, yet there is anticipation and excitement for what lies ahead. The music produced by current vocalist/guitarist Xer0 has been instrumental in crafting their signature sound, which undoubtedly left its mark on countless listeners.

The production Xer0 be bringing to the table is said to be truly incomparable and will live on through his contributions to this record. Mixing and mastering duties will be brought forth by Ulrich Wild (Static-X, Taproot). ‘Project Regeneration Vol. 2.’ is scheduled to be unleashed for the whole world to hear on Friday, November 3rd, 2023.

Static-X Members & Family Speaking of Project Regeneration Vol 2:

Tony Campos:

“I am so happy that the recording for ‘Project Regeneration: Vol. 2‘ is finally finished, and the album is currently being mixed by our long-time producer Ulrich Wild. The only thing left is for the vinyl manufacturing to be completed.

I am proud to say that between Project Regeneration: Vol. 1‘ and ‘Project Regeneration: Vol. 2‘, we have been able to bring the fans 25 brand new Static-X songs, most of which feature Wayne Static on lead vocals. Nobody would have imagined that any of this could even be possible a few short years ago.”


“We are so grateful to Wayne’s family for giving us their blessings and trusting us to complete Wayne’s final works. This has been an incredibly challenging task, to say the least, and it has all been done with an immense amount of love and respect. I am also grateful to all of the Static-X fans around the world for all of the love and support they have shown towards me.”

Wayne Static’s younger sister Aimee:

“We all miss Wayne very much and we are so proud of the way that the band has chosen to honor him through the completion of his final works. They continue to place an emphasis on his presence within their live shows and it’s been incredible to see the fans continue to connect with the band’s music and with Wayne‘s memory. We fully support the journey that Static-X is currently on, and we know that Wayne would be incredibly grateful for all of the hard work that Tony, Ken, Koichi, and Xer0 have done over the past few years.”

Ken Jay:

Due to this being a two-part album and the fans having already been treated to 13 original songs from Vol. 1, we thought it would be fun to share the NIN cover, as we announce the completion of Vol 2. ‘Terrible Lie’ is just a taste of what is to come, and we can’t wait for fans to heart the rest of this album!”
