Wayne Static: 'Albums Aren't Important, Not a Big Deal Anymore'
Static-X mastermind Wayne Static gave an update regarding the new material he's working on, sharing a less optimistic stance regarding the music world. "I'm trying to figure where I wanna go with it, that's the biggest obstacle right now 'cause I don't wanna repeat myself," Wayne told the Gauntlet. "It's kinda hard - each record you do it gets harder and harder. I think I'm good at what I do. And people ask me 'Why did your solo album sound like Static-X?' I'm like, 'Well, because that's me [chuckle].' I wrote Static-X songs. What did you think you were gonna get - Nickelback?" After noting that he is looking for a way to spice up his material and freshen up the approach, the frontman focused on the rock crowd and the overall state of music industry. "You can't please everyone and there's always gonna be people that - I could redo 'Wisconsin Death Trip' and some people would be overjoyed and some people would be mad." The singer added, "Releasing CDs is not as important as it used to be, I don't think it's that big of a deal anymore. Nobody buys music anymore. I'm kinda at a point in my career where I think I could just go out and tour and people are fine with that - just hearing the old songs."
