Static-X Discuss ‘Cult Of Static’ With Chicago’s Q101.1

Static-X discussed their new, darker record ‘Cult of Static’ with Ryan Manno of Chicago’s Q101.1 while at press row at the Staples Center in Los Angeles ahead of Sunday’s 2009 Grammy Awards. “Just as heavy as our last record ‘Cannibal’,” Wayne Static said of the new release. “But there’s a lot more depth to it… It’s very epic for us. Normally our songs last about 2 1/2 minutes, and there’s 5 and 6 minute songs on this record. You can really chill out to this and have a great time. There’s parts that are really super heavy and shreddy, and there’s parts that are moody and dark.” Watch the interview below.

No Rest For Static-X

Wayne Static tells Dan Condon of Time Off magazine that the Los Angeles band are set to begin work on the follow-up to their 2007 disc ‘Cannibal’ after their Australian tour wraps up. “After the Australian tour we’re gonna go home right away and start writing the next record,” the frontman said. “I plan on working very hard on that and hopefully we’ll have the next record out in the middle of next year. I haven’t actually written anything but I know exactly what I want to do. I have a lot of great ideas brewing in my head and I’m really looking forward to getting started on it, actually.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
