Static-X Ditch Shamed Guitarist
An official statement from the band reads as follows:
“Static-X has parted ways with guitarist Tripp Eisen, effective immediately. Tripp is currently dealing with personal issues that prohibit him from being able to fulfil his commitment to the band. No replacement has yet been chosen. Static-X is in the studio putting the finishing touches on their fourth Warner Bros. album, scheduled to be released in May. The band will tour this summer in support of the record.”
If convicted Eisen (real name Tod Rex Salvador) could face a maximum of 30 years in jail.
