With the release of the upcoming album "Project Regeneration: Vol. 2" just weeks away (out January 26),industrial music icons STATIC-X are releasing a new music video for the song "Otsego Placebo" from "Project Regeneration: Vol. 1". The song is the first piece of original music that the band created without Wayne Static. The music was written and performed by the original lineup of Tony Campos, Koichi Fukuda, Ken Jay along with current vocalist/guitarist Xer0, who is widely believed to be DOPE frontman Edsel Dope. "Otsego Placebo" was a fan-favorite from "Project Regeneration: Vol. 1" and shows that STATIC-X is back and stronger than ever.

"This is a brand-new STATIC-X song," says Campos, "but we approached it with the same spirit as the other songs on 'Project Regeneration'. I really feel like we captured that old school STATIC-X/Evil Disco sound, even though Wayne wasn’t involved in the writing on this one. Xer0 really delivered with the vocals on this track and this is one of my favorites from the batch of these new songs."

The music video features live performance footage of the current lineup from the first leg of "Machine Killer" tour and can be seen below.

"Project Regeneration: Vol. 2" was always planned as a companion piece to the original "Project Regeneration: Vol. 1" and the two records combined feature all of the remaining material discovered on tape of Wayne Static. The new album was produced by Xer0 and mixed/mastered by longtime collaborator Ulrich Wild. All vinyl record and digipack bundles come with a limited-edition double sleeve, which both "Project Regeneration: Vol. 1" and "Project Regeneration: Vol. 2" are able to slide into. This allows both albums to be housed together as the completed set they were always intended to be.

"Project Regeneration: Vol. 2" track listing is:

01. Stay Alive
02. Z0mbie
03. Jic-Boi
04. Black Star
05. Kamikaze
06. No Hope
07. Take Control
08. Tone
09. Run For Your Life
10. Dark Place
11. Disco Otsego
12. From Heaven
13. Terrible Lie (Bonus Track)
14. Grover Yoda Data 14 (Bonus Track)
