Static-X has unveiled the second single taken from their upcoming album, Project Regeneration Vol.1, with the song “All These Years.” The clip takes you on a nostalgic journey to the 1970s, where we see a young Wayne Static figuring out who he wants to be when he grows up. Musically, the track, which features vocals from the late Wayne, takes you back to where it all started with hints of 1999’s Wisconsin Death Trip and 2001’s Machine. The video is directed by the group’s current mysterious vocalist, Xer0, and co-directed by Matt Zane.
The band commented:
“It’s very challenging to represent someone in a music video, who is no longer alive, but that was something that we really wanted to do and I think it came out great” says drummer KEN JAY. “These are some of Wayne’s last works, so we really wanted to make this video all about him and to continue to celebrate his life and legacy. What better way to do that than through a fun, fictional story about how Wayne was inspired to become the legend that who he became through STATIC-X.”

Project Regeneration Vol.1 was initially scheduled for a May 29th release. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the record will arrive via streaming platforms and physical CD on July 10th and vinyl will be available on August 14th.
