Following the recent success of the band's Rise of the Machine tour with Fear Factory, Static-X has confirmed plans for a fall North American trek opposite nu-metal stalwarts Sevendust in what is being dubbed The Machine Killer Tour.
The name of the run pays homage to the tenure of both bands, borrowing from Static-X's iconic sophomore full length, Machine, and Sevendust's pending fourteenth studio album, Truth Killer. The effort is due July 28th via Napalm Records and has thus far been previewed by the impactful singles in “Fence” and “Everything”.
The 21-date stretch begins on October 6th in Houston, TX. and rounds out with the finale in Los Angeles, CA on November 1st in what will be a hometown play for Static-X. The run will also include an especially important stop on October 10th with a hometown show for Sevendust. Veterans DOPE and prospects Lines of Loyalty will be on as support for all dates.
Members of both Static-X and Sevendust weighed in on their shared history and the importance of a pairing more than two decades in the making.
“We are excited to bring the fans an even bigger and better show than the last one” says Xer0 of Static-X. “We are already building the new production elements and we intend to blow the roofs off of these venues each night.”
“We can’t wait to hit the road with our friends in Static-X and DOPE. It has been 24 years since the last time we have shared a stage with those guys. We can’t wait to do it again this Fall and to bring together all of our family members together in one place,” added Lajon Witherspoon.
“We are beyond thrilled to be touring with Sevendust again” says Tony Campos. “They bring one hell of a show each and every night, so this tour is going to be one for the ages.”
"We’re excited to join our friends in Static-X and Dope who we share much history with on tour,” add Clint Lowery. “I have no doubt that this will be an extremely entertaining and high production run. The bands and the fans have much to look forward to on this one. Do not miss out!”
Truth Killer from Sevendust will be released on July 28 via Napalm Records. Pre-orders are available HERE.
