Frontman Tommy Victor spoke about touring with Static-X:
"Static-X has been carrying the torch for no-nonsense, hard hitting music for many years and it's an honor to tour with them. They've put out great records again and again and I've witnessed their live show so many times and never been disappointed. It's going to be fun to see them every night tearing it up with those killer riffs, great beats and raucous hooks! PRONG officially thanks Wayne and company for this opportunity!"

Wayne Static commented about touring with PRONG:
"I'm very excited to have PRONG join the tour. Over the years PRONG has had a huge influence on many musicians, including myself, and I am honored to share the stage with them."
