With the release of Static-X's Project: Regeneration Vol. 2, fans will experience the last of Wayne Static's remaining recordings and, in celebration of his legacy, we've invited frontman Xer0 to name his favorite song off each of the band's eight albums.

As its title indicates, Project: Regeneration Vol. 2 is the second installment of an ongoing project. The pair of albums finds the band utilizing vocal tracks and song ideas Wayne Static had left behind in the wake of his tragic 2014 passing at the age of 48.

With the blessing of Wayne's family, Static-X was resurrected in 2018, with the enigmatic Xer0 paying tribute to the late founder as the band's new frontman, flanked by the classic lineup of Tony Campos (bass), Koichi Fukuda (guitar) and Ken Jay (drums).

Not only are Static-X faithfully delivering classics onstage, touring heavily in recent years and keeping the legacy in trustworthy hands for the future, but they're offering fans a sense of closure by working with Wayne's recordings to make this new music a reality.

"Z0mbie," for example, exudes the best of classic Static-X, a pulse-pounding industrial groove banger that fully embodies the band's self-professed "evil disco" aesthetic.
