The final interview late Static-X frontman Wayne Static took part in has surfaced over at Revolvermag.com. While there’s nothing too relevatory during the read, there is the following hauntingly ironic closing thought shared by Static:

“It’s been a long journey and honestly, I can’t believe that I’m still relevant to the music scene. I can’t believe I’m still touring and still making records. I never in a million years expected all this. It’s all because of my fans. I have the best fans in the world. They’re hardcore and die­hard. I do it all for them. I keep going for them. I want to keep everyone happy and excited. I realize that’s my job. The reason I’m on this planet is to make people happy.

I used to think my job was to rock out with my cock out and shit like that, but that’s not my job. My job is to make people happy. I go on stage and I see people’s faces light up and I see everyone smiling. I don’t see people fucking banging their heads and shit, I see everyone smiling at me, having a good time and singing along.

I’m just really glad that I can provide that service to everyone and take an hour out of everyone’s shitty day, so that they can have a good time and enjoy themselves. So thanks you to all of my fans for sticking by me. I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing ’til I’m dead.”

Static was found dead on November 01st at the age of 48. His exact cause of death has yet to be determined.

One of Mike Patton‘s (Faith No More, etc.) going concerns is a new project dubbed Tētēma. That outfit finds him paired with Anthony Pateras. The pair will release their debut album “Geocidal” on December 09th through Ipecac. Until then you can find the bands video for their track “Tenz” below courtesy of wonderingsound.com.

A new Agnostic Front album will soon be a reality with the band set to begin tracking the outing on December 05th. Those recording sessions will be occur at Buzzbomb Sound Labs with Paul Miner (Terror, Atreyu) taking on the engineering, mixing and mastering duties. Frontman Roger Miret commented:

Lock Up Release Statement On Their New Vocalist

Yesterday it was revealed that Lock Up had parted ways with vocalist Tomas Lindberg (of At The Gates, etc.) and replaced him with Kevin Sharp, formerly of Brutal Truth. The following official statement has now been released on the matter:

“ATTENTION GRINDMONGERS!!!
It seems to be on the internet already so you may aswell hear it from us now a little earlier than we planned.

Unfortunately we have to announce the departure of our brother and long-time vocalist Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates / Disfear).For the record, there’s absolutely no bad blood or drama involved and we wish Tompa nothing but the best in all his future endeavours.

As you all know, At The Gates have just released a brand new, killer album, and the subsequent touring schedule that will follow means Tompa simply won’t have any free time to commit to Lock Up‘s imminent future plans of recording a new album or any live performances that will follow.

Tompa states:
“I sadly had to part ways with.my good ol’ grindbuddies in Lock Up.This is all due to time/schedule/logistic issues. The new At The Gates record needs/deserves its time, and i don’t want to leave my brothers from downtown hades hanging. In a dream world i could do both, but it would be egoistic of me to hang on to it – and constantly having to say no to stuff because i wasn’t available.

Luckily a mutual grind bear buddy, Mr. Kevin Sharp, was able to step in. He will be a perfect replacement. He has the heart, the passion and the voice. He has also been a friend of everybody in the band for as long as i can remember. I will miss the music, the brotherhood, the fans and the good times. But i think that this decision is for the best of the band, and that is what matters.”

So please welcome our good friend and partner in grind, Mr. Kevin Sharp of Brutal Truth into the ranks of the band as our new full time vocalist. Kevin made his debut live appearance with Lock Up at Manizales Grita Rock Festival in Colombia back in early October with only 10 days notice to learn 22 songs.

Kevin had this to add:
“Having already toured with Lock Up several times, its fells very natural jamming with them. When we played the gig in Colombia last month… If I wore shoes, I’m sure they would have been very comfortable.

Barker is an absolute pleasure to follow – hit’s like an asshole on fire. Anton’s tones and riffage are simply metallic and classic . And Shane and myself – well we’ve done Venomous Concept for over 10 years now – I know how the man is wired. I’m super stoked to see the variables put together… This is gonna be ridiculously heavy.

Nothing but but huge grind gratitude for Tompa and his work in the band… It’s pretty cool tearing apart his phrasing and lyrical style. Never too old to learn new things about what you can do with your voice and dissecting his approach is an honor. Uber grind salutations to his reboot of both Disfear and At The Gates. Two of my favorites. I look forward to crossing paths with them in the future…

Let’s kill it…”

This is a very exciting and brand new chapter for the band as we prepare to enter the studio in the coming months to record our follow-up album to ‘Necropolis Transparent‘, which came out on Nuclear Blast Records back in 2011. The band is currently busy in writing mode and currently seeking a new label home and hope for an early summer release of the as yet untitled new album.”
