Fear Factory Tease New Album

Fear Factory are teasing fans with the release of 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. Check out the preview here.

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.

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."

Members of the band are currently in Los Angeles rehearsing for upcoming performances in South America followed by their first U.S. tour since late 2010.
