Fear Factory release their new album, The Industrialist, in North American today and are currently streaming the effort online.
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. Listen to the album stream here.
The Industrialist is a conceptual record based around a short story written by Bell. The record again pairs Fear Factory with producer Rhys Fulber and was mixed by Greg Reely (Paradise Lost/Skinny Puppy/Machine Head), with additional tracking by Logan Mader (Gojira/Divine Heresy).
Currently ravaging stages across Europe, Fear Factory will return for another North American run of dates this summer headlining this year's inaugural Shockwave Festival! Set to kick off July 6, the tour – which includes Voivod, Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index, Revocation, Havok, Dirge Within, Last Chance To Reason, Vildhjarta, The Browning and Forged In Flame – will steamroll its way through over two dozen cities across North America.
