Wayne Static: “Static X And Wayne Static Are The Same Thing”
Wayne Static recently stated that he and his former outfit Static-X are “the same thing”. To that end he posted the following via his Facebook yesterday (September 06th):
“The thing is Static X and Wayne Static are the same thing. The music comes from the same place and the same person. A struggle that all musicians face is how to keep moving forward without losing fans. If you do the same thing people say “oh it sounds the same as their last record. I wish they’d do something new” but if you change it up then it’s “they don’t sound the same.
I wish they’d go back to their old music.” You can never please everyone at the same time. Styles, sounds, records, they all change with environmental factors such as what’s going on in a writers life at the time the pieces were written. And that’s the true beauty.
I’m not writing a song to appease you, I’m communicating an emotion to appease what is inside of me. You can appreciate the butterfly, even in its coccoon. Lest we forget that these dusty dirty temporary homes are spun of pure silk. Change is beautiful.”
You may recall that in 2012 Wayne Static was touring under the Static-X moniker with his solo band lineup. The name was eventually dissloved amid contractual disputes with former members.
