Video footage of STATIC-X performing the song "Stingwray" on May 28, 2009 at The Village in Little Rock, Arkansas can be viewed below (courtesy of Arkansas Rocks! Entertainment).
"Stingwray" was inspired by frontman Wayne Static's wife, former adult film star Tera Wray, and the Corvette Stingray she drives.
"Cult of Static", the new album from STATIC-X, sold 19,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 16 on The Billboard 200 chart.
STATIC-X's previous CD, "Cannibal", opened with more than 30,000 copies back in April 2007 to land at No. 36. This represented a slight drop from the 35,000 tally registered by the band's "Start a War" album, which came out in June 2005 and debuted at No. 29.
As previously reported, STATIC-X has tapped drummer Will Hunt (EVANESCENCE, DARK NEW DAY, ex-SKRAPE, TOMMY LEE) to fill in for Nick Oshiro on the group's current tour. Hunt also appears in STATIC-X's new video for the song "Stingwray".
Oshiro is reportedly "taking a break" from STATIC-X, but has not officially left the band.
The Best Buy-exclusive version of "Cult of Static" features two bonus tracks — "W.F.O." and a cover of MÖTLEY CRÜE's "Looks That Kill".
