After Static-X finished up their tour in 2009, it was decided that they would be taking a break.  Many people suspected that they were breaking up, but it is being played off as just being on hiatus.  Frontman Wayne Static hasn’t let it slow him down.  He has a new album on the way and began his solo tour over the weekend to back the solo effort.

Static’s new album, Pighammer, comes out tomorrow and is a bit of a concept album.  In an interview with Revolver, Static explained exactly what Pighammer is all about.

It’s about a mad plastic surgeon, with a pig fetish, that likes to convert hot chicks into pigs. It is the total opposite if what a plastic surgeon would do. He has this crazy hammer device made from a pig foot. The images of the surgery in the CD package are only a dark comedic visualization of the real theme of the album, which is my transformation.

Static would also say that he has wanted to do a solo album since 2000.  He explained that he was a little jealous that some of the guys in the band got to do other projects outside of Static-X.  Static was the main songwriter in the band, which he said made it difficult to break away to work on other projects.

Check out the footage of his solo act from this weekend in Boise, ID.
