NEW YORK (AP) - Wayne Static, the frontman for the metal band Static-X, has died at age 48.

Morgan Renken, who worked with Static and the band for 15 years, says Static died Saturday. She declined to give the location or the cause of the death.

Static was the lead vocalist, keyboardist and guitarist for Static-X, whose “Wisconsin Death Trip” went platinum. He also released a solo album, “Pighammer,” in 2011.

Renken says Static was set to begin a monthlong U.S. tour Monday and he planned to play in Russia and England next year.

Static was a native of Muskegon, Michigan, and lived outside of Joshua Tree, California. He is survived by his wife, adult film actress Tera Wray.
