FEAR FACTORY Unleash Special Video Preview; “Recharger” Confirmed As Lead Single

April 17th, 2012

FEAR FACTORY has released a special trailer that is a visual preview into the story behind their forthcoming new album, The Industrialist. Set for release June 5, The Industrialist is the second album written by vocalist Burton C. Bell and guitarist Dino Cazares since reuniting in 2009 after a seven-year split. An audio snippet for the album’s lead single, “Recharger,” is now available at the band’s official YouTube page; the single is available via iTunes, Amazon and other online retailers beginning April 24.

As previously announced, The Industrialist is a conceptual record based around a short fiction written by Bell; lyrics to the album’s ten songs divulge the narrative as discussed recently by Bell with Decibel Magazine. The album will be available on three formats – standard CD, a limited edition deluxe digi-book (featuring two additional songs), and 180-gram double vinyl. Pre-orders for the album in all formats will be available shortly via Candlelight Records’ official webstore.

Bell notes, “the protagonist (The Industrialist) is the incarnation of all industries in the form of an automaton. The mechanical, technological, and scientific advances through the industrial age led to the creation of The Industrialist. In the story, the automaton becomes sentient as it collects memories with each passing day. Through observation and learning, it gains the will to exist. What was meant to help man, will eventually be man’s demise.”

The Industrialist follows the 2010 release of Mechanize. Widely regarded, the album was the first release from FEAR FACTORY in six years. Mechanize debuted on Billboard’s Top 100 album chart week of release and topped CMJ’s Loud Rock radio chart as programmers embraced the band’s triumphant return. Sirius XM and Headbangers Ball’s host Jose Mangin noted, “after Mechanize dominated 2010 as Liquid Metal’s Album Of The Year, North America is chompin’ at the bit to get an ear full of new Fear Factory. I have no doubt that FEAR FACTORY are going to kick our collective asses in 2012.”

Members of FEAR FACTORY are currently in Los Angeles rehearsing for upcoming performances in South America followed by their first U.S. tour since late 2010. Bell and Cazares presented members of Slipknot the “Comeback Of The Year” award last week at the 4th Annual Revolver Golden God Awards; an award they were nominated for in 2010. Xbox broadcast the program, including pre-ceremony black carpet interviews, to all game console owners; Revolver Magazine streamed the event live via their Facebook page. Rebroadcast information will be announced by Revolver Magazine shortly.

Dates on FEAR FACTORY’s upcoming American tour are noted below.

5/01/2012 Backstage Live – San Antonio, TX

5/02/2012 Trees – Dallas, TX

FEAR FACTORY: The Industrialist Artwork And Track Listing Revealed

March 29th, 2012

Additional May Tour Days Confirmed

Fear Factory -  The Industrialist

Fear Factory - The Industrialist

FEAR FACTORY today reveals cover and package details for their forthcoming new album, The Industrialist. Set for North American release on June 5, The Industrialist is a conceptual record based around a story written by vocalist Burton C. Bell. Lyrics to the album’s ten songs divulge the narrative as discussed recently by Bell with Decibel Magazine. The album’s artwork was created by American designer Anthony Clarkson with additional direction from the band. The album will be available on three formats – standard CD, a limited edition deluxe digi-book (featuring two additional songs), and 180-gram double vinyl.

Bell notes, “the protagonist (The Industrialist) is the incarnation of all industries in the form of an automaton. The mechanical, technological, and scientific advances through the industrial age led to the creation of The Industrialist. In the story, the automaton becomes sentient as it collects memories with each passing day. Through observation and learning, it gains the will to exist. What was meant to help man, will eventually be man’s demise.”

The Industrialist again pairs FEAR FACTORY with producer Rhys Fulber. Mixed by Greg Reely (Paradise Lost/Skinny Puppy), with additional tracking by Logan Mader (Gojira/Divine Heresy), the album is the second written by Bell and guitarist Dino Cazares since reuniting in 2009 after a seven year split. Cazares says, “collaborating with Burton again on the new album was like magic. Everything just fell into place naturally. It felt good to recapture the true sound of FEAR FACTORY, taking it back to where it all started while raising it to new levels.” Regarding Fulber Cazares notes, “Rhys has been our secret member,” shares Cazares. “He is the one producer who has been able to understand what we have been trying to accomplish from the beginning and has opened our eyes to new things without sacrificing our original sound. His production and keyboard talents has made FEAR FACTORY stand out amongst the many bands of our genre.”

The Industrialist follows the 2010 release of Mechanize. Widely regarded, the album was the first release from FEAR FACTORY in six years. Mechanize debuted on Billboard’s Top 100 album chart week of release and topped CMJ’s Loud Rock radio chart as programmers embraced the band’s triumphant return. Sirus XM and Headbangers Ball’s host Jose Mangin noted, “after Mechanize dominated 2010 as Liquid Metal’s Album Of The Year, North America is chompin’ at the bit to get an ear full of new FEAR FACTORY. I have no doubt that FEAR FACTORY are going to kick our collective asses in 2012.”

FEAR FACTORY Album Release Date Confirmed; Additional Performances Added To May Tour

February 29th, 2012

Candlelight Records today confirms June 5 as the North American release date for FEAR FACTORY‘s new album, The Industrialist. Produced by the band with Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly), the album was mixed by Greg Reely (Paradise Lost/Skinny Puppy/Machine Head). It features additional tracking by Logan Mader (Gojira/Divine Heresy/Five Finger Death Punch) and artwork by Anthony Clarkson (Devin Townsend).

 

The Industrialist is a conceptual album that brings to life a story scripted by vocalist Burton C. Bell. The album’s lyrics detail the plot of the original narrative while delivering FEAR FACTORY‘s massive signature sound. Bell reveals, “the album is a futuristic tale of an automaton, striving to survive by fighting for its existence within a desperate world. The lyrics tell the story while the music takes our industrial roots and blends them more perfectly than ever with our metal edge. And all without losing the sound that makes FEAR FACTORY a machine of sonic devastation. FEAR FACTORY fans of any era will not be disappointed.”

 

Clocking in at just under one hour, the album’s ten songs again unite Bell with guitarist Dino Cazares. It is the second album written by the duo, reuniting in 2009 after a seven year split. Cazares says, “collaborating with Burton again on the new album was like magic. Everything just fell into place naturally. It felt good to recapture the true sound of FEAR FACTORY, taking it back to where it all started while raising it to new levels.”

The Industrialist again pairs FEAR FACTORY with long-time friend Rhys Fulber. Their collaborations together include five albums and two remixes, including the certified gold album Obsolete. “Rhys has been our secret member,” shares Cazares. “He is the one producer who has been able to understand what we have been trying to accomplish from the beginning and has opened our eyes to new things without sacrificing our original sound. His talents in production and keyboard/samples has made FEAR FACTORY stand out amongst the many bands of our genre.”

The Industrialist follows the 2010 release of Mechanize. Widely regarded, the album was the first release from the band in six years and the first new material from the nucleus of Bell and Cazares since 2002. The album debuted on Billboard’s Top 100 album chart week of release and continues to sell in early 2012. Sirus XM/Headbangers Ball’s host Jose Mangin comments, “after Mechanize dominated 2010 as Liquid Metal’s Album Of The Year, North America is chompin’ at the bit to get an ear full of new FEAR FACTORY. I have no doubt that FEAR FACTORY are going to kick our collective asses in 2012.”

 

Revolver editor Brandon Geist adds, “in the ’90s, FEAR FACTORY’s founding duo of Burton C. Bell and Dino Cazares changed the sound of metal, from the way that metal vocalists sing to the way that metal and electronic music can be fused together. With 2010’s reunion album, Mechanize, their partnership proved to be as lethal as ever. Though 2012 promises plenty of massive heavy-music releases, there isn’t a record that I’m looking forward to more than The Industrialist.”

FEAR FACTORY recently announced their first tour dates since 2011. Joining them for the tour that is set to kick off on May 1 is Boston’s Shadows Fall, Kansas City-based The Browning, Riverside, California’s The Devastated, and Legacy Of Disorder from New Zealand. The complete list of confirmed dates are:

 

5/01/2012 Backstage Live – San Antonio, TX
5/02/2012 Trees – Dallas, TX
5/03/2012 Scout Bar – Houston, TX
5/05/2012 State Theater – St. Petersburg, FL
5/06/2012 Culture Room – Ft. Lauderdale, FL

5/07/2012 Masquerade, Atlanta, GA (NEW)
5/09/2012 Ziggy’s – Winston-Salem, NC
5/10/2012 Theater of Living Arts – Philadelphia, PA
5/11/2012 Wally’s Pub – Hampton Beach, NH
5/12/2012 Gramercy Theatre – New York, NY

5/20/2012 Summit Music Hall – Denver, CO

FEAR FACTORY – New Album Is Recorded!

February 11th, 2012
FEAR FACTORY

FEAR FACTORY

FEAR FACTORY have finished recording their new album, “The Industrialist”, to be released this year in Europe via AFM Records and in the U.S. through Candlelight. The CD was once again co-produced by the band with Rhys Fulber (FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY, PARADISE LOST), with additional tracking by Logan Mader (DEVILDRIVER, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, SOULFLY). The mixing duties are being handled by Greg Reely (PARADISE LOST, FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY, SKINNY PUPPY) and FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares at a studio in Canada.

 

In a January 2011 interview with SkullsNBones.com, FEAR FACTORY vocalist Burton C. Bell stated about the band’s plans to go into the studio to record the follow-up to 2010’s “Mechanize”, “We wanna take our time doing it. Personally… ‘Mechanize’, don’t get me wrong, is a good record — I’m very proud of it — but it’s gotta be better than that. I’ve got plans where I’d like to do a full-on concept again — story, artwork. Just make it real cerebral.”

 

FEAR FACTORY’s most recent touring lineup featured original FF members Dino Cazares (guitar) and Burton C. Bell (vocals) alongside bassist Byron Stroud (who was credited on the last three FEAR FACTORY albums in addition to touring and recording with STRAPPING YOUNG LAD and ZIMMERS HOLE) and legendary drummer Gene Hoglan (DETHKLOK, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, DARK ANGEL, DEATH, TESTAMENT).

July 16th, 2011

Burton C Bell and Byron Stroud (both of Fear Factory’s fame) in recent days have became extremely active along with the whole City of Fire camp. The secret project that was announced several days before, turned out to be COF new album.

To secure the founding for it, Burton has created a Pledge music page that can be seen here: http://www.pledgemusic.com/artists/cityoffire#about

What seems to be the most unique about it is that the band is offering VIP tickets  to concerts and even a chance to co-produce the album to a lucky fan. The album would be released in early 2012 and then followed by a tour.

Fear Factory, as is being told, is the next project in line and we can expect new release  in 2012 as well.  This news is really exciting for everyone who waited for more specific information about new FF album as well – we now know  the exact plans for the band members.

FEAR FACTORY Narrowly Escape Devastating Bus Fire

Northamptonshire, England: FEAR FACTORY in the early morning hours narrowly escaped fire that quickly engulfed their tour bus while in route to London. The fire reportedly stemmed from a back wheel tire before spreading throughout the double-decker coach. BBC News confirms the fire closed down two lanes of the southbound M1 as Northamptonshire fire officials battled the blaze.

FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares released the following comment moments ago: “We had just finished playing a sold out show in Sheffield and we were on our way to London. Everyone was asleep except for two of our crew. At about 3:30am the bus driver noticed smoke coming from the back right wheel. He stopped, jumped out and noticed a flame underneath the wheel well. He tried to extinguish it but the flames were too much. Everyone on the bus was woken up by one of our crew yelling ‘Get everyone up and out of the bus.’ Everyone grabbed their bags and ran off the bus. We stood on the side of the freeway going ‘thank god we all made it out’ until someone noticed our merchandise guy was still asleep on the bus. A good friend of ours ran back on the smoked-filled bus and got him out just minutes before the bus was completely in flames.”

FEAR FACTORY are currently on tour in the UK continuing performances in support of their latest album, Mechanize. The band completed their most recent American tour on July 27th to a captivated audience in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The following evening the band departed from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport for an additional three weeks of dates in the UK and other various European festivals.

Cazares adds, “our eyes are burning and we were all coughing from the smoke. Some of us lost wallets, money, computers but that’s not important compared to our lives. It only took about 20 to 30 minutes for the bus to be completely covered in flames. The fire trucks and the police finally arrived but it was too late to save anything on the bus. A coach bus picked us up and brought us safely to a nearby hotel. We found out only a short while ago that the trailer was saved where all our gear was. But the bus is just a metal frame on the side of the road.”

Viral Video From FEAR FACTORY for “Powershifter”

July 16th, 2010
FEAR FACTORY

FEAR FACTORY

Noisecreep today premieres a special Internet-only video for the song “Powershifter,” taken from FEAR FACTORY‘s latest album Mechanize. Filmed in England earlier this year, the video was created by noted English videographer Myles Dyer with assistance from producer Tom Bacon and cameraman David Bass.  Presented in high definition, it captures the band on stage in front of an enthusiastic audience.

Check the video out below, or here.

“Powershifter” was the first song fans heard from Mechanize when album release details were announced late last fall. Within days the song was heard by over 100,000 fans as they quickly logged on to the YouTube page that premiered the first new material to include the revamped FEAR FACTORY lineup of vocalist Burton C. Bell, guitarist Dino Cazares, bassist Byron Stroud and drummer Gene Hoglan. The song would top college radio charts prior to Mechanize hitting stores on February 9. The album dominated the chart for six weeks at the number one position and maintained top ten status for another ten weeks as programmers threw their support behind the record.

Commenting about the video, Burton C. Bell says, “I am very curious to see the reaction to this video. It was filmed by a good friend of ours, Myles Dyer. He has been a great supporter of FEAR FACTORY for a long time, and now he has become a prominent videographer. He traveled with us for about a week during the UK portion of the Fear Campaign tour earlier this year. Although ‘Powershifter’ was leaked in the early stages of release, we wanted to produce an online only video for FEAR FACTORY fans everywhere. We hope the fans take the video and spread the FEAR FACTORY word like wildfire.”   FEAR FACTORY returns to American stages this weekend as part of their on-going Fear Campaign 2010 tour, performing tomorrow night at The Rock in Maplewood, Minnesota. All four members will take part in a meet-and-greet prior to the performance at Best Buy (located at 1643 West County Rode B2 in Roseville) beginning at 3pm. FEAR FACTORY, with 36 Crazyfists, Divine Heresy (featuring FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares), and After the Burial, will performance in Des Moines, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, New York City, and Towson (Baltimore) before concluding this current North American tour in Allentown on July 27. The band returns to Europe beginning July 31 for festivals and headline performances in England, Ireland, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Bulgaria and their appearance at the massive Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany.    Mechanize has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide since release earlier this year. Media have praised the record; Decibel Magazine calls it the “greatest FEAR FACTORY full-length in more than a decade.” Revolver says, “the record marks a clear return to the classic FEAR FACTORY sound. The result rings familiar but also fresh; even in the very futuristic year of 2010.” And Blabbermouth notes “FEAR FACTORY 2010 is a fiery and evolved rebirth of the band that changed metal in the ’90s…Mechanize is the album I have been waiting for.”   Remaining dates on the current North American tour are noted below.
