Wayne Static Leaves the Drugs Behind on 'Assassins of Youth' -- Video Premiere
Next month Wayne Static will unleash 'Pighammer,' the Static-X mastermind's debut solo album.
The industrial metal icon is coming out of the darkest year of his life and he channels that turmoil into the album's 12 songs. It's evident in the record's first single, the unrelenting and unapologetic 'Assassins of Youth.' "I wrote this song while living in a hotel room, listening to Pink Floyd, drinking Crown Royal and doing whippits," explains Static.
"I started the song in that condition but never finished it until years later after dumping off the drugs. Now the song has a whole new meaning from when I started it," reveals the frontman. "Assassins of Youth" is an old-school street term for drugs. The first verse is about doing drugs, the chorus is going dry and the 2nd chorus is about getting off the stuff and no longer being slave to them.
Noisecreep presents the exclusive premiere of the video for 'Assassins of Youth.'
Wayne Static's 'Pighammer' will be out on October 4th via Dirthouse Records.
