Fear Factory and Shadows Fall Tour
Set to begin in San Antonio on May 1, the tour's initial dates include stops in Dallas, Philadelphia, New York City, Baltimore, and Denver among others.
The tour will precede the release of Fear Factory's new album titled The Industrialist and the band recently announced the addition of bass player Matt DeVries. The Ohio native previously noted, "I have been asked to join one of my favorite bands. I have been a fan of FEAR FACTORY since 1992 and I could not be more excited to be part of this incredible band." Guitarist Dino Cazares and vocalist Burton C. Bell noted, "we are very excited to have Matt playing bass for FEAR FACTORY. We feel he is a great addition to our touring line-up. He has been a friend for a very long time and he is a great musician who will be a perfect instrument in the FF machine."
With rehearsals for the tour expected to start soon, the members of Fear Factory are finishing details on their forthcoming new album expected for release early summer. Greg Reely has now completed the album's mix. All that remains is final artwork and packaging. Regarding the new material, Cazares and Bell affirm, "this album perfectly captures the true nature of Fear Factory. The industrial/metal blend is a strong return to our original concept for Fear Factory."
