STATIC-X and DEVILDRIVER are continuing their onslaught of North America this fall with a second leg of the massively successful "Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary" tour, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of STATIC-X's platinum-certified "Wisconsin Death Trip" album and pays homage to the group's late frontman Wayne Static. With several sold-out shows from the first leg under their belts, STATIC-X and DEVILDRIVER will once again be joined by support acts DOPE, WEDNESDAY 13 and RAVEN BLACK, kicking off the second leg on November 8 in Austin, TX.
The full lineup will tour through December 8. Then, from December 9-18, STATIC-X will headline solo shows in the Pacific Northwest with Wednesday 13 as direct support.
Tickets are available now via individual venues and their web sites. Additionally, North American meet-and-greets are available now via www.static-x.org.
Tony Campos of STATIC-X says: "We are so honored and grateful to all the fans who came out and supported the 'Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary' tour. The response was absolutely overwhelming. There were a number of places that were left out of the first leg, so we are very excited for the opportunity to circle back and celebrate all the good times we had with Wayne. We look forward to giving those fans an opportunity to pay their respects with us and to experience 'Wisconsin Death Trip' once again before 2019 comes to a close. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all!"
Masked STATIC-X vocalist Xer0 — rumored to be Edsel Dope of DOPE — adds: "The first leg of the tour was absolutely insane! Almost every single show was SOLD OUT! Thank you to everyone for being so supportive! We are very excited to be able to get out there and hit a bunch of cities that didn't appear on the first leg."
Dez Fafara of DEVILDRIVER adds: "The last tour was so successful, with most dates sold out or close to it, that of course we are honored to be part of this package again."
Edsel Dope of DOPE offers: "The first leg of the tour came and went so fast. Every night was a massive celebration of Wayne and of 20 years of 'Wisconsin Death Trip', and 'Felons And Revolutionaries'. Hearing Dez singing 'Loco' nightly has just been crazy! It's like a fucking time warp and it's just been so sick! The package is amazing! The fans are loving it... I'm so glad that we get to do it all again before 2019 comes to a close."
Wednesday 13 says: "We are excited to announce that we are part of the second leg of the 'Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary' tour with STATIC-X and DEVILDRIVER. This tour has been amazing so far, and we can't wait to do it again. Look for an all new album and show from us the second time around."
Raven of RAVEN BLACK adds: "It has been an honor and privilege to have shared the stage with so many legendary bands we each have grown up listening to as fans. We have been overwhelmed by the love we've received by their fans. It has been an amazing and life changing experience for us and we are so excited to be on part two of this tour this fall. We are forever grateful for the opportunity and support."

Wayne Static died in November 2014 after mixing Xanax and other powerful prescription drugs with alcohol, according to the coroner's report. The 48-year-old, whose real name was Wayne Richard Wells, was found dead in his Landers, California home.
Static founded STATIC-X in 1994 and achieved commercial success with "Wisconsin Death Trip", which included the rock radio hit "Push It".
"Project Regeneration", featuring the last recordings of Static, will be released later this year. The rest of the group's original lineup will also be featured on the album and in the music videos.
