Wayne Static, founding member of Static-X has announced a co-headlining tour with Powerman5000. The tour will also include support by American Head Charge on select dates. One thing is for sure, this tour is bursting with intensity and energy and will definitely be one not to miss. It kicks off on November 6th in Waterloo, IA and will run through to November 30th in McCallem, TX. Static says about the tour,

2014 has been an awesome year! We just finished up the 15th anniversary Wisconsin Death Trip tour. I’ve got the best band behind me that I’ve ever had, and I am very excited to round out the year with a co-headline tour with Powerman 5000. It’s another 15th anniversary tour! It’s a testament to both bands that we are both still going strong and the timing is perfect for us to tour together again. I am equally excited to share the stage with American Head Charge again. I believe it was 2005 when we toured together last. This is a great line up and this tour is gonna kill!”

We recently had the opportunity to catch Powerman5000 when they made a stop at The Boardwalk in Orangevale. One thing is for sure Powerman5000 = ENERGY. These five guys come out on stage and just bleed energy and feed the crowd with their electronic metal rock.

Check out this tribute video that Rockin Ryan made which includes live footage of their set:

So make sure to check the tour dates and see when they will be coming to a venue near you. You can also visit their social media sites and stay up to date on their latest news.
