The "Rise of the Machine" tour featuring Static-XFear Factory, Dope, Mushroomhead and Twiztid has been postponed to 2023.

The North American tour will now begin Feb. 25, 2023 in San Francisco and will loop Canada and the United States before finishing up April 15, 2023 in Los Angeles. See the full list of tour dates below.

“On the surface, we are incredibly disappointed to share this news with our fans," Static-X write. "However, considering how infrequently Static-X, Fear Factory, and Dope have each toured over the last 10 years, we felt that the priority was to ensure that ALL of these 20th anniversary shows are ultimately able to play."

"With all of the uncertainty around travel restrictions, the extreme rise in current cases, as well as the quarantine mandates for those who test positive, we believe that attempting to play these dates in the coming weeks would likely result in a number of last-minute cancelations and lead to a much greater level of disappointment."

"The good news is that we were able to keep the entire touring lineup intact. Static-X, Fear Factory, Dope, Mushroomhead, & Twiztid will each perform in their previously scheduled cities, and due to the excitement around the tour and exceptional ticket sales, we also added four additional cities to the tour."

"Further, we highly value having an up close and personal meet and greet experience with our fans. We take extreme joy in shaking hands, giving hugs, taking photos, and we look forward to doing all of this without having to socially distance, wear masks etc. We are certain that by pushing things back, these experiences will be significantly more enjoyable and memorable for all of us."

"In addition, Static-X, Fear Factory, and Dope are all scheduled to complete new albums in 2022, which will lead to each band having brand new music to share with the fans, as we lead into these newly rescheduled tour dates."

"As we stated previously, we are so excited to finally get back out on the road and hang out with you all. We plan to play most of the songs off of both Machine and Wisconsin Death Trip, as well a number of nice surprises that are being incorporated into the set list. We appreciate our friends in Fear Factory, Dope, Mushroomhead and Twizted making themselves available to share in all of this nostalgic insanity next year. We can’t wait to celebrate all of the good times that we had with Wayne and to share it live and loud with all of our fans night after night,” explains Static-X."

Fronted by the mysterious Xer0, who wears a mask sporting the likeness of late frontman Wayne Static, Static-X have experienced a second era of success thanks to Project Regeneration. The band’s 2020 comeback album, Project Regeneration Vol. 1, received high praise from fans and critics and broke the Top 50 of the Billboard 200.

“We are so excited to finally get back out on the road,” raves Static-X. “We plan to play most of the songs off of both Machine and Wisconsin Death Trip, as well a number of nice surprises that are being incorporated into the set list. It is going to be awesome to have Fear Factory, Dope and Mushroomhead back out on the road with us to share in all of this nostalgic insanity. All in all, this package is going to be one for the ages and we can’t wait to get out there and celebrate 20 years of our Machine record, while we continue to remember all of the good times that we had with Wayne and to share it live and loud with all of our fans night after night.”

“I’m beyond excited to finally turn the Fear Factory machine back on and start crushing stages alongside our longtime friends in Static X,” adds Dino Cazares of Fear Factory.

“We are honored to be part of this tour. Static-X, Fear Factory and Dope toured together back in 1999. It was the first time that we all met, and it laid the foundation for all of the tours that Dope and Static have done together. I can’t wait to get back out there and get crazy with all the fans!” exclaims Edsel Dope.

The 20th anniversary release of Machine is scheduled for February 18, 2022. The re-release features newly remastered audio by Ulrich Wild and features all 12 tracks from the original release, as well as three new bonus tracks: “Wisconsin Death Trip (Live 2019 Regeneration featuring Wayne Static),” “Sweat of the Bud (Live 2019 Xer0)” and “I'm With Stupid (Live 2019 Regeneration featuring Wayne Static).” Click here to pre-order the 20th anniversary edition.
