A Voodoo Doctor “The Doctor” came across a girl who looked lost and scared. He used his magic to turn her into a doll, but his spell was disrupted from her terrifying and taunting screams, she remained half human, half doll. As Raven lived in the dark world of the Doctor, she secretly learned his magic and conjured up a demon, Muppet, who she made her eternal protector and trapped him inside her heart. The Doctor and Muppet created Stitches to search for those who are looking to join our dark metal carnival world in the 13th hour.

Raven Black released their first single, “Died Inside,” on September 7, 2013 at the Roxy, selling out the venue that night. They continued to work in the studio and released their first EP, Midnight Dreary, in June 2014, successfully packing the house at the famous Viper Room.

The band was previously managed by Aaron Rossi (Grammy Nominated Drummer of Ministry/Prong), AJR Enterprises and worked with Grammy-Winning Producer Logan Mader (SoulFly/Machinehead/Five Finger Death Punch).

In October 2014, they revamped their line up and began working with Grammy Nominated Producer Ulrich Wild (Rob Zombie, White Zombie, Alice In Chains, Breaking Benjamin, Pantera, Seether,Dethklok, Otep, and more) on their new album. They then spent the next two years writing and then released their single, “Seven Sins,” in April 2016 and their EP, Seven Sins, in September 2016.

Raven Black played the Corona Hell and Heaven Festival July 2016 in Mexico City, Mexico with headliners like Rammstein, Twisted Sister, Ghost, Five Finger Death Punch, Mushroomhead, Selpultura, Alien Ant Farm, and many others.

To end their summer, they played the 2016 DirtFest Festival in Michigan with headliners Killswitch Engage, Asking Alexandria, Hatebreed, Attila, Born of Osiris, and many others.

Releasing their first Official EP with the new line up, Seven Sins dropped September 29, 2016 on the way out to tour with Mushroomhead, Sunflower Dead, Unsaid Fate, and Death Division for Mushroomhead’s Annual Halloween Tour.

The 2017 year started very busy for Raven Black as they headed to Cleveland, OH to film their new music video with MonoBloc’s Josh Apple and Andrew Sparks for “Twinkle Twinkle Little Scars,” premiered by Revolver Magazine on April 13, 2017. A little horror version of their already theatrical presence in the metal community. “We wanted to have some blood in this one,” says Raven.

After a quick rest, Raven Black toured through the Southern parts of the U.S. on their way to SXSW They played the Heart of Texas Rock Festival in March 2017. Winning fans from across multiple genres at SXSW. Raven says, “I am so proud of being able to share our METAL music with other fans of country, hip hop and pop genres. I was so surprised and happy to see them buying our music. It was fun and the only thing missing was the big mosh pit, LOL, although there was a small handful of metalheads represented this year at SXSW. ”

After returning back home to Los Angeles, the band quickly prepared for their first Headliner Tour, The Hex O’Clock Tour, which kicked off in Guadalajara, Mexico at the Roadhouse Voodoo Bar, July 7, 2017 and returned to the U.S. to begin their month long tour throughout the U.S. from coast to coast.

The Hex O’Clock Tour was a complete success and the band was able to visit so many new cities throughout the country, see their fans, and play so many new venues. Sharing with their fans, new stage props, a few new songs and announcing their new album, 13, in early Spring 2018.

Raven Black just finished their 6-week across the U.S. tour supporting Psychostick, Arsonists Get All the Girls, and Kissing Candice. The tour was amazing and the bands have developed life-long friends. Doesn’t always happen on tours, but it did this time.

To end the 2017 year, Raven Black just announced their pre-order of the Comic Book The Dark Metal Carnival – The Beginning – Issues 1-100. These pre order comic books will be series sequenced from 1-100 and will release in print this Spring 2018. Only these first 100 issues will be numbered for the fans that pre-order. The remaining prints after the first 100 will not be numbered.

They will be also releasing their 2nd EP Album this Spring, 13. In the studio in January and February, Raven Black will be working with Ulrich Wild, Wurm Group, once again to complete their next release this Spring 2018. Of course, this will surely mean a TOUR across the U.S. and performing the new tracks from “13”. There may also be a new music video coming this early Summer.

On tour this Spring with special guest, Hail Sagan and Aboleth May 11, 2018 through June 3, 2018 including an appearance at the Metal In the Mountains Festival in West Virginia on June 2, 2018 with headliner, Mushroomhead.

The Spring tour, “The Little Monsters Tour” will feature their new album “13” with single releases, “Monster”, “DollHouse” and “The Nobodoies” (Cover Song by Marilyn Manson”). Their new first issue/limited edition comic book, “A Dark Metal Carnival – The Beginning” and new swag for 2018.

Following their tour, expect a few fun releases of a new music video and a new announcement of their upcoming Summer Tour after they play the 2018 Michigan Metal Festival on August 11, 2018!

ENDING THEIR 2018 YEAR, RAVEN BLACK HAS BEEN ON TOUR WITH DEVILDRIVER AND JINJER THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES.

IN 2019, RAVEN BLACK SIGNED WITH THE ORACLE MANAGEMENT, OWNED AND OPERATED BY DEVILDRIVER’S VERY OWN DEZ FAFARA AND AHNASTASIA FAFARA.

EDSEL DOPE Confronts Static-X Rumors: Calls Photo of Neck Tattoo “Click Bait and Hilarious”, While reminding us that “People can do Amazing things with Photoshop”

DOPE front-man EDSEL DOPE, in the midst of a flurry of online speculation, has broken his silence to address the claims of photographic evidence attempting to prove his role as the masked vocalist, named Xer0, on the current STATIC-X Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary Tour / Memorial for WAYNE STATIC.

Hello world.

I have quietly sat through all of this speculation and have thoroughly enjoyed the ride.

Yesterday’s internet eruption reminded me of an episode of Scooby-Doo.

It’s incredible how far some people will go to get attention or clicks, so let me remind you how easy it is to slap a little tribal neck tattoo onto someone in photoshop.

IMG 4001

I’m honored for myself and for my band DOPE to be part of this 20th anniversary celebration, along with this unbelievable, traveling memorial to our old friend Wayne Static.

Wayne is currently on the minds and in the hearts of the metal community in a very unique and special way. His memory / legacy is more celebrated than it has ever been before.

I personally get to see the joy, the tears, and the incredible sense of healing that is occurring on the faces and in the hearts of Static-X fans, each and every night, around the world.

I’m not attempting to be a spokesperson for Static-X, but I will share that I have personally met Wayne’s parents and siblings, as they have attended a number of these shows.

I have personally seen their tears of joy and their expressions of gratitude and approval for the way that Tony, Ken, Koichi, & Xer0 are celebrating the music and memorializing the life and legacy of their son and sibling, Wayne Wells Static.

I’m including a candid photo that I snapped of Static-X drummer Ken Jay embracing Wayne’s father, while Tony Campos, Wayne’s mother, Wayne’s siblings and friends share some personal time together. Words cannot express the love and respect that I’ve experienced out here.

IMG 3987

It’s one thing to go on a Scooby-Doo scavenger hunt, or to use photoshop to attempt to prove whatever you are trying to spin, but it’s entirely different when trolls, masquerading as journalists, spew their ignorant, hateful words towards something that is so incredibly personal.

Anyone with the nerve to throw virtual tomatoes at a traveling memorial, that has been orchestrated and supported by the family, loved ones, and long-time friends of the deceased should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.

IMG 4014

In the end, I’m not the type of person to allow others to dictate the narrative of my life or my art, so I’ve decided to also include a picture of me chatting it up, while watching another SOLD OUT Static-X show from the side of the stage the other night.

STATIC-X Releases Video Teaser for New Song, “HOLLOW” & Announce Official Release Date with Updated Details for Long Awaited, 7th Studio Album, ‘PROJECT REGENERATION’

Hollow Promo Final

STATIC-X has released a video teaser for their new song, “HOLLOW,” off of their highly anticipated 7th studio album, PROJECT REGENERATION. The album is scheduled to release May 29, 2020 with all pre-ordered merchandise associated with the new album to begin shipping October 15th.

Player

Originally scheduled for release in Spring of 2019, the new STATIC-X album, PROJECT REGENERATION was first intended to feature several guests vocalists, along with the original Wisconsin Death Trip band line up of Tony CamposKen Jay, and Koichi Fukuda.

During the recording sessions for PROJECT REGENERATION, one of the bands producers uncovered several additional unreleased / unfinished STATIC-X tracks, many of which contained isolated vocal performances by Wayne Static.

Because of this incredible find, the new STATIC-X album will now feature lead vocals by Wayne Static on virtually every song.

“It was very surreal” says Tony Campos. “Our producer was going through all of these old studio tapes, many of which were damaged. He called me up and told me that I needed to get down to the studio right away and listen to what he found.. I jumped in my car and raced to the studio and what he shared, fucking blew me away.. It was Wayne singing on track after track, but there was little to no music on any of it.. Most of the tapes were damaged and Waynes voice was virtually all that remained in tact.”

“It was just crazy!!” adds drummer Ken Jay. “There we were.. Myself, Tony and Koichi, back in the studio together, after all these years, and somehow the universe decided to surprise us with all of these lost STATIC-X tapes containing Waynes voice. I just couldn’t help thinking that this was all somehow meant to be. I couldn’t stop thinking about how happy this was going to make Waynes family, and all of the STATIC-X fans around the world.”

While this comes as amazing news for the fans, completing these additional tracks has created a lot of additional work for the band and their producers.

Due to the busy touring schedule associated with the 20th Anniversary of Wisconsin Death Trip, the band had no choice but to delay the album’s release.

“The official release date for PROJECT REGENERATION is now May 29, 2020.” Says Tony Campos “In the mean time, we have decided to go ahead and ship out ALL of the merchandise and schwag associated with the pre-orders to all the fans who have participated. This way they can have all of their shirts, hoodies, posters, etc, while we all wait a little bit longer for the music to be complete.. As originally planned, the Cd’s will ship to everyone the week prior to release..”

In addition, we are finally able to begin sharing some of the finished music from PROJECT REGENERATION” adds Campos. “There is a lot of great stuff on the way, but right now we are going to share a video clip for one of the newly finished songs called ‘HOLLOW.’ This song was originally a demo from the Start A War album, which was never completed.
“Wayne and I never felt like the music on the original demo was fully realized”. adds Tony. “The vocals sounded great, but some of the musical compositions from that time period felt a bit experimental. There is a reason that some of these tracks never made it on a previous STATIC-X album, and it certainly wasn’t because of Wayne’s vocals. The band was just going through a lot of changes at that time and, in retrospect, it felt like we were straying away from that authentic STATIC-X sound that had really defined us.”

Ken Jay adds, “When we began working on PROJECT REGENERATION our producers advised us to ignore all of the old demo music.. We opted for the original band to re-enter the studio with nothing more than Wayne’s vocal tracks.. The vocals sound really great and I think that Wayne would be really happy with what we’ve done with the music and to hear that these tracks have finally realized their full potential..”

“The 20th Anniversary for Wisconsin Death Trip only comes once in a life time.” Says original guitarist Koichi Fukuda “and this year has been absolutely incredible. The new album is going to be very special and this whole 20th Anniversary touring process has been a very unique and healing experience for the band and also for the fans.”

“We are so grateful to the fans who have made 2019 such an incredible year for STATIC-X!” adds Ken Jay. “We have toured the world and celebrated the life and work of our dear friend Wayne, while playing our debut album front to back every night.. The fans have really exceeded our expectations and again, we are just so grateful!”

“Now that the touring for 2019 is coming to an end, we have revised our schedule and we are excited to finish the album so that we can get it into the hands of the fans asap,” states Campos. “I promise that it will be worth the wait!”

DOPE Celebrates 20th Anniversary of debut album, ‘Felons & Revolutionaries’ with Worldwide Tour Alongside STATIC-X, DEVIL DRIVER, WEDNESDAY 13, RAVEN BLACK, & SOIL

dope Promo 20th anniversary

Industrial Metal Lifers DOPE are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their debut album, Felons & Revolutionaries with the launching of a worldwide tour alongside STATIC-X. Kicking off June 18 in Tempe, Arizona, the tour winds throughout North America, Australia, the UK, Europe, and will also include Russia and The Ukraine.

“It’s crazy to think that it has been almost 20 years since Dope’s debut album Felons & Revolutionaries was released.

I’m so grateful for the foundation that the album laid for the band and I appreciate the affinity that so many of our fans have for its raw, unpolished production..”

Felons and Revolutionaries really put Dope on the map. It catapulted us from the streets of NYC to international awareness in such a short time. We toured constantly with bands like Slipknot, Mudvayne, Fear Factory, Powerman 5000, Statind, Sevendust, POD, Kid Rock, and of course Static-X.. We also got to see our music featured in some very prominent movies and soundtracks such as The Fast & The Furious, Scream 3, and American Psycho.
– EDSEL DOPE

On Dope touring with STATIC-X, Edsel states:

“Somehow, everything has all come full circle. In the early days, Dope toured with Static-X more than any other band. We played more than 200 shows together on our debut album cycles and we all became really good friends..

So many tours, so many memories.. It’s really surreal to be dong it again 20 years later..

It’s very fitting that Dope is pairing up with Static-X again to celebrate the anniversaries of both of our debut albums..”

And in discussing the passing of friend and iconic front-man WAYNE STATIC:

“It was really sad man! Dope was part of the last North American tour that Wayne did in 2014. So I had the pleasure of touring with Wayne at the very beginning of his career and also at the very end.. I’m very grateful for those experiences, but they obviously left me feeling very sad and angry, after hearing how he passed.. Addiction is incredibly unforgiving & It doesn’t discriminate.. Even still, Wayne’s passing caught us all off guard.. It was shocking and it was sad and it was totally unnecessary..
We lost an incredibly talented friend, a funny and gentle person, who contributed so much to our scene… His voice was incredible and we all mourn his passing because we love and miss the beauty that he contributed to the world… We should also view his passing as a cautionary tale, because too many good people are leaving this earth way too early.. It’s sad and it makes me angry, because it really shouldn’t have happened at all.. I’m glad that Static-X has chosen to memorialize Wayne on this tour! I think it’s an incredibly sincere way form them to pay their respects & to represent his importance and presence within the band, while they celebrate the 20th anniversary of Wisconsin Death Trip.”

For fans hoping for new music from Dope, Edsel offers:

“Dope has a ton of new music recorded for the next album.. The trouble is, I’m a self diagnosed crazy person.. I just can’t seem to put the finishing stamp on things quite yet.. I’m truly sorry! I know that it drives the fans crazy, because they want to hear what I’m working on.. Believe me, It drives me crazy too.. I just have to be in the right head space, in order to commit to the completion of the audio and visual elements that go along with it.. I’m the artist, the producer, the video director, the graphic designer, the manager, and everything else in between for Dope, so it’s allot for me to come to a peaceful place with. Deep down, there is a method to the madness and I’ll get there soon enough….

Right now, I’m just excited to hit the road and party with the Dope fans around the world and to spend time with lots of old friends.. After that, we can turn the page again and focus on completing and releasing some new Dope music.
These shows are gonna be insane!! Many of them are already sold out..

I can’t wait for it to begin!”

Imagine all the elements of a category 5 hurricane, and right in the middle of that storm is the most beautiful sunset… that’s The Clay People.

Whether it’s seeing a live show, or just listening to TCP, there’s a connection made very quickly between band and audience. A sense of comfort, knowing if you had a rough day, or are feeling down, that you can count on TCP to take you away from all that

The Clay People return on Demon Hero and Other Extraordinary Phantasmagoric Anomalies & Fables, an album that captures the band at a creative peak, and was forged from what was at times a tenuous, cathartic, and finally unifying recording process.

On Demon Hero Neet takes on the corrupting influence of modern politics, the silver tongue of the modern demagogue, the ills of groupthink, and the band’s experience with the music industry. “I’ve been plagiarized. I’ve been beat up. I’ve been manipulated… .And we’ve got nothing left to lose,” Neet confesses on the anthem “Bloodletter.”.

The Clay People’s self-titled album was released on Mercury/Slipdisc records, and their furiously propulsive lead single “Awake” climbed the radio charts. The band toured with Disturbed, Stained, Clutch, Rob Zombie, Static X, Stabbing Westward, and Filter.

“Awake” was featured in films such as Strangeland, Universal Soldier 2, and Marked For Death.

The band called in extended members of its musical family to contribute to Demon Hero. Chris Wyse of The Hollywood Vampires, Ace Frehly, The Cult, and OWL, contributed bass to the band’s reinterpretation of fan favorite “Strange Day” and “Gen RX.”. Walter Flakus of Stabbing Westward, and one-time Clay People member, contributed keys. Wade Alin, who added programming to the band’s self titled release, returns on Demon Hero.

Dinsmore and McGarvey produced the album, turning to producer Neil Kernon (Nile, Queensrcyche, and Nevermore) for the final mix.
