Mustaine, who handpicked the bands for GIGANTOUR, says that his focus was on musicianship.
“There are a few very successful tours out each summer and in order to be significant, I knew the first GIGANTOUR had to make an impact with top bands like Dream Theater, FEAR FACTORY, Dillinger Escape Plan and Nevermore,” he said.
Fear Factory is also currently in the studio recording tracks for their new album Transgressions, which is slated for an August 23 release via Trillion Records. Trillion is the new imprint from Liquid 8 Records and Entertainment founder and CEO Mike Cattain who created Trillion as a home for FEAR FACTORY and new bands seeking a creative haven grounded in growth.
