Although some may question that Static X and Sevendust are an unlikely pair, both bands made it big with their brand of nu-metal during the early 2000s. This 2023, the Machine Killer Tour will drop by 21 cities, including a highly-awaited stop in Los Angeles, California. The Machine Killer Tour is reported to have taken over two decades in the making. The last time these two bands performed together was 24 years ago, and this 2023, they are making it happen with a nationwide outing. Statix X and Sevendust will bring along special guest Dope, to hype the crowd for this wildly exhilarating spectacle.

In 2001, Static X entered the Billboard 200, peaking at number 11 with their sophomore effort, Machine. The album sold over 500,000 copies in the U.S., earning the band a gold certification. The breakout album follows the band’s career-defining debut effort, Wisconsin Death Trip, which sold over one million copies in the U.S. Throughout the band’s almost three decades career, they produced seven critically-acclaimed studio albums, including their latest effort, Project Regeneration Vol. 1 in 2020. This 2023, Static x is set to release their new album, Project Regeneration Vol. 2. The album was already preceded by the hit single “Terrible Lie,” a cover of Nine Inch Nails’ 1983 single.

Like Static X, Sevendust also rose to prominence during the late ‘90s with their self-titled debut album. The record, released in 1997, made a slight breakthrough when it entered the Billboard 200 chart at number 165 and peaked at number 5 on the Top Heatseekers chart. But thanks to the album’s iconic singles, “Black,” “Bitch,” and “Too Close to Hate,” – all of which entered the Mainstream Rock Tracks, the band garnered a cult following.

Over the years, Sevendust steadily rose in the ranks and entered Billboard’s Top 20 for their subsequent releases until 2015. This July, the band is set to drop their 14th studio album, Truth Killer, via Napalm Records. The album was preceded by the single “Everything,” which peaked at number 23 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks. Since releasing their debut single “Black” in 1997, Sevendust has consistently performed well on the chart - totaling over 30 singles.

In an interview, Sevendust’s frontman Lajon Witherspoon expressed his excitement about sharing the stage with Static X. "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 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."
