Static-X’s ‘Project Regeneration’ album due out in May 2020

Credit: Matt Zane PhotographyStatic-X has set a release date for Project Regeneration, a new album featuring the final vocal recordings of late frontman Wayne Static.

The album will be available on May 29, 2020. You can check out a preview of the new song "Hollow" now via YouTube.

Static-X first announced plans for Project Regeneration in October 2018. The album will feature the band's original lineup -- bassist Tony Campos, guitarist Koichi Fukuda and drummer Ken Jay -- as well as vocals and compositions left behind by Static prior to his death in 2014.

Originally, Project Regeneration was going to feature mostly guest vocalists. However, a new trove of Static's recordings was discovered, and the album will now feature Wayne's lead vocals on "nearly every track."

Over the summer, Static-X launched a tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of the band's 1999 debut album Wisconsin Death Trip, with an unidentified singer referred to as "Xer0," who wears a mask created in Static's likeness.

The tour is currently traveling through Europe, and will return to the U.S. for another run in November.
