Static-X bass player injured in motorcycle accident as band readies
for start of Extreme Steel national tour.

Tony Campos suffered a broken collarbone in a motorcycle accident on Monday
evening. Campos was riding his motorcycle near his home in Los Angeles,
California when the accident occurred.

Frontman Wayne Static said, "We're all disappointed that Tony is injured,
and we're not exactly sure who will play bass on the start the upcoming
tour, but everyone should be certain that Static-X will be on stage when the
tour begins next week. We're extremely psyched about this tour, and can't
wait to get out there. We hope Tony can re-join us soon."

Static-X will be in New Haven, CT on Wednesday, June 20 for the opening show
of the Extreme Steel tour. In addition to Static-X, the tour also features
Pantera, Slayer, Morbid Angel and Skrape.

Machine, Static-X's new Warner Bros. CD, debuted on the Billboard Top 200
album chart last week at Number 11. It's the follow up to the band's
platinum selling debut Wisconsin Death Trip.

New Rob Zomie... YEAH!

Three years after the release of his last album of original material, B-movie rocker Rob Zombie is ready to come roaring back this fall with a brand new album and a U.S. tour.

Zombie is nearly finished recording his second solo LP (or third, if you count his 1999 remix release, American Made Music to Strip By), according to his management.

The as-yet-untitled album � which is expected to include a guest appearance by Slayer guitarist Kerry King � is slated for a mid-September release, with a tour set to begin around Halloween.

The artist's Web site (www.robzombie.com) promises that the outing will be his "largest stage show ever."

Zombie said in March that the new album uses the same producer (Scott Humphrey) and band as 1998's triple-platinum Hellbilly Deluxe. "Now that the band has been together awhile, it has a much more live, raw sound. It sounds a lot more fluid," Zombie said.

The fate of Zombie's other recent project, the horror movie "House of 1000 Corpses," which he wrote and directed, has yet to be announced. Earlier this year, Universal Pictures backed out of releasing the film, citing its "visceral tone and intensity" (see "Studio Ditches Rob Zombie Movie").

Zombie, former leader of industrial rockers White Zombie, left the band in '98 to start a solo career.
