Static-X debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its single ‘Dead Souls.’  The song is the fourth single from the band’s recently released album ProjectRegeneration Volume 1.  Its debut follows the debut of the album’s other singles ‘Bring You Down,’ ‘All These Years,’ and ‘Hollow.’

The band’s ‘Dead Souls’ video features a blindfolded woman in a forest setting seemingly controlling a masked figure in a city, who ends up capturing a man and bringing him to the forest for the apparent mystic.  The mystic ends up binding the man’s hands and leads him away as the video ends.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Dead Souls’ is an example of the change that Wayne Static displayed in his vocal performance style before his death as well as the approach to songwriting taken by Static’s band mates — Tony Campos, Ken Jay, and Koichi Fukuda since Static’s passing.  Ministry founder/front man Al Jourgensen provided a guest vocal performance for the song.

Campos discussed Jourgensen’s appearance on the song in a recent interview.

“This song has become one of my favorite tracks on the record,” said Campos.  “We had no intention on doing a video for it initially, but it came out so good, we had to do it.  I’m so grateful to Al Jourgensen for singing on the track with Wayne.  Ministry was a big influence on us, and I know Wayne would’ve been just as stoked as I am to have Al sing on one of our records.  I think the video fits the song really well.  It’s dark, creepy, with just a touch of humor.”

Static-X is giving audiences one more preview of its long-awaited album Project Regeneration Volume 1.

The band debuted a full album trailer Thursday for the album, which is Static-X’s first new album in more than 11 years.  The trailer takes listeners through the course of the 12-song record, giving audiences a preview of each song along with video snippets.

Project Regeneration Volume 1 will be available at midnight through Static-X’s official website and available to stream and download here.

Original band member Ken Jay recently had the following to say about Project Regeneration Volume 1, which features the last recorded vocals from the band’s late original front man — and band namesake — Wayne Static.

“While hearing Wayne’s voice again provided some incredibly emotional
moments for us all, the feeling I’ve ultimately gotten from being in this
band and from making music together is FUN…I hope that everyone who listens to this album feels the same way,” he said.

Fellow founding member Tony Campos expanded on his band mates comments.

“I’m really excited to finally get the record out to the fans,” said Campos.  “I know
they’ve been waiting a long time for this, but I’m hoping once they
get it, they’ll hear the love, sweat, and tears we put into it, and feel
like we’ve done right by them, Wayne’s family, and Wayne’s
memory.”

Project Regeneration Volume 1 is the first of two new albums from Static-X this year.  The second volume will release later this year.  The current record features not only Static’s final vocal performances, but new lyrics and vocal performances from current front man Xero.
