Static-X Bassist Leaves Band

It has been about two months since Static-X reunited in early July and bassist Brent Ashley (pictured left) has already left the band.

In a Facebook post, Ashley said he wished it would have “ended differently.” He also Tweeted, “Being the professional I am I wont call anyone out or point fingers as to why I left.. but if ya meet me in person.. feel free to ask.”

This isn’t the first time Static-X has had bassist issues. Original bassist Tony Campos said around the time of the band’s reunion that he has no interest in working with frontman Wayne Static now or in the future. Campos recently played bass on the new Prong record, Carved Into Stone.

A tough job? Maybe. It is unknown who will be playing bass for Static-X’s upcoming tour with Emmure and Ill Nino.

    I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. Wayne Static is one of the biggest assholes in the music industry and he treats his band members like pieces of shit. I’ve seen it myself and have heard it from several of the ex members themselves. He is notorious for being a selfish piece of shit.

    Wayne Static is only using the Static-X name to make money. I saw Wayne Static on his solo tour. Only about 20-40 people showed up. I remember he played the exact same venue a couple years earlier with the real Static-X. The place was sold out.

    Damn that sucks. Maybe Brentt can go work with The Dreaming again. XD

    I saw Static X in Pittsurgh last month. They put on a great show and there were no signs of tension. Too bad. The best to all involved.
