Edsel Dope to Tripp Eisen: “Keep My Name Out of Your Talentless Mouth!”
Edsel Dope has escalated the war of words with his former bandmate, guitarist Tripp Eisen.
Eisen played guitar on Dope’s first album, Felons and Revolutionaries (1999), and has two songwriting credits on their sophomore effort, Life (2001). The guitarist went on to join Joey Jordison’s Murderdolls and then, eventually, Static-X. He was fired from the latter band in 2005 after he was arrested (twice) for having or attempting to have unlawful sexual intercourse with an underage girl. In 2008, he was arrested again, this time for attempting to “to Lure or Entice a Child.” He spent large swaths of 2005 and 2009 in prison.
Eisen made headlines again last year when he claimed that Static-X’s new album, Project Regeneration, Vol. 1, contains “a lot of my material.” Although the band denied this to be the case, Eisen reiterated those assertions yesterday, and took credit for the reported involvement of Edsel Dope, largely believed the be the singer behind the mask of ‘Xer0,’ the mysterious musician currently fronting Static-X.
Edsel Dope has now released a statement slamming Eisen, calling the guitarist “an egotistical, low talent idiot” and claiming that Wayne Static “fucking hated” him. Dope almost made a not-so-thinly veiled reference to the Insane Clown Posse’s recent directive that their fans “inflict necessary beat down” on Blood on the Dance Floor’s Dahvie Vanity, who has also been accused of sleeping with underage girls: “”I hope that ICP and all the Jugalos [sic] across the world are reading this and remember who you are, what you did, and why you’ve ended up crying on the sidelines.”
Dope’s statement, which also included multiple memes about Eisen’s history as a sex offender, is below:
“You 2 time CONVICTED sex offender piece of shit!
“Keep my name out of your talentless mouth!
“I fired you 20 years ago, because you are an egotistical, low talent idiot and Static X fired you more than 15 years ago because you were a 40 Year old creep, who was arrested for having sexual relations with multiple 14 year old fan girls. DEPLORABLE!
“You have not progressed in the least bit. Not even after spending 2 separate stints in jail.
“You are an antagonist, who paints himself as a victim.
“BOO HOO & FUCK YOU!
“Meanwhile, You’ve never even apologized to our metal community for betraying all of our trust, by preying on young, impressionable fan girls for your own selfish perversions.
“And now, you are trying to attach your name to an incredibly well orchestrated memorial / tribute that you had ABSOLUTLY NOTHING to do with.
“GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!!!
“For your information.
“Wayne and I had a very pointed discussion about you, while on tour together in 2014, so I know EXACTLY how he felt about you. WAYNE FUCKING HATED YOU & he had no interest in ever associating with you again…
“You’ve been begging for people to pay attention to you and your new band for 3 years..
“Attempting to tie yourself to virtually everything Static-X or Dope does.
“Hash-tagging Dope, Static-X, and the Murderdolls in virtually every post..
“After all of that, you have managed to gather roughly 1,000 followers in TOTAL….
“IT’S OVER dummy.
“You will always be known as that 40 year old creepy guy with “LEE PRESS ON” dreads, who targeted underage fan girls for sex.
“This is not my opinion.. This is a fact and it is public record.
“Charges were filed against you in 2 separate states for kidnapping, endangering the welfare of a child, aggravated sexual assault, and luring to entice a minor through the Internet.”
“You were ARRESTED & SENTENCED.. GAME OVER.
“I hope that ICP and all the Jugalos across the world are reading this and remember who you are, what you did, and why you’ve ended up crying on the sidelines.
“I’M SO DOWN WITH THE CLOWNS and I so hope the Juggalos are listening.
“#14 year olds dude…”
