In a fitting start to its summer tour, industrial metal band Static-X will end its performance hiatus at the Life Tattoo Convention Center in El Paso, Texas, later this month. The group’s brief but packed schedule calls for a nearly show-per-day run throughout July, its first live series since announcing an indefinite break back in 2009. Spread across 15 days, the tour will also feature another Static-X first: the first set of shows to be performed without original member, Tony Basos, helming the bass.

With more dates slated to come, here’s the beginning lineup to Static-X’s Summer 2012 Tour (of Firsts):
