Fear Factoryhas announced a headline run of USA tour dates with direct support coming from Nuclear Blast label mates Soilwork. Better still, Fear Factory will play their ground-breaking 1995 album Demanufacture (Roadrunner) in full, on each date of the tour. They will also play their other hits as they continue to support 2015s Genexus album. Demanufacture was a landmark of 90s metal, with many hallmark features that have been emulated ever since across several sub-genres. All confirmed tour dates are below, with more TBA.

Guitarist and co-founder of Fear Factory Dino Cazares remarked:

“To me this album sounds not one day older today than it did in 1995,” stated guitarist Dino Cazares, “It’s a metal classic for the ages and I’m excited that we are finally going to be able to perform it live in its entirety + songs from Genexus. Play fearlessly.”

On The Road… with Coal Chamber And Fear Factory

coalchamberfearfactorytour2015

One of the more interesting bills this summer of tours in the US is the co-headline tour from Coal Chamberand Fear Factory. Both names recall a simpler time when pants were baggy, fishnet sleeves were cool on guys, and even venerable old groups were “getting jiggy wit it” to Nu-Metal. Coal Chamber of course started around the same time as Korn and Deftones in California, to spur the “Nu” tide and bring their gothy spin to the Ozzfest crowd (Sharon Osborne managed them for a spell too). Fear Factory of course is the pioneering industrial metal band who paved the way for many and also mixed in the style du-jour with their own back then. So it’s not that big a shock that in 2015 with one band already touring behind a comeback album (Rivals by CC dropped in the spring from Napalm) and another about to launch a new album, these bands would team-up like Marvel. Coal Chamber always puts on a fun show live and played a mix of hits and newer tracks. Led by fireplug Dez Fafara, they gave the fans what they wanted: nostalgia. Fear Factory, on the cusp of releasing Genexus (Nuclear Blast) this summer, kept it tight on old jams and one new one, ‘Soul Hacker’. Joining them for a few early dates was Devil You Know, who are working on a new album too. Rockers likeSaint Ridley and Madlife (not pictured) are setting the table for this tour too, so get to the club early. Shot here on the first night of the tour at theRialto Theater, in Tuscon AZ, Melina Dellamarggio of Melina D Photography brings you all the action you missed as if you were there.

Fear Factory Unveil Artwork and Track Listing for Genexus

Fear Factory Genexus album cover 2015

After announcing their next album Genexus due this summer from Nuclear Blast Entertainment, Fear Factory has revealed new album artwork, a full track listing and the concept of the album. Vocalist Burton C. Bell reports on the theme:

 

The word genexus is a hybrid of two words; genesis and nexus. This word describes the next transition in human evolution as man moves forward to a ‘mechanical’ state of being. Ray Kurzweil predicts that the singularity will occur around 2045. Genexus is the term for that next evolutionary process. Where humans are machines, machines are human, and the differences are oblivious to the naked eye.”

This album is a record of thought patterns, psychology and struggles of the Genexus generation. The cognitive machine has arrived, and it wants autonomy from the industry that created it. This machine struggles, like every other human has throughout the course of history. This is the story of every one of us.”
