Static-X Premiere New Song “Hollow,” Featuring Wayne Static on Vocals

0

More than fifteen months after initially announcing their new album, Project Regeneration, and just about six months after announcing the delay of that album, Static-X have, at last, released the record’s first single, “Hollow.” Constructed from previously-unreleased and newly-unearthed recordings of late frontman Wayne Static — who passed away in 2014 as the result of mixing alcohol and prescription drugsProject Regeneration is said to feature Static’s vocals “on virtually every song.” Thus, even though Mr. Static has been dead for more than five years, he appears on “Hollow,” which sounds, to my ears at least, like classic Static-X. Whether or not that’s a good thing, I’ll leave to you to decide.

You can check out “Hollow” below. Project Regeneration comes out May 29. You can pre-order it here.
