Fear Factory Avoid Tragedy, Announce New Instore Appearances

Fear Factory had a brief scare last week when their tour bus nearly went off road while in route to Boise , Idaho . Luckily no one was injured and the band made their show at Knitting Factory Concert House without much delay.

Guitarist Dino Cazares says, "we were on our way to Boise for a day off when about 8:45am our bus driver fell asleep at the wheel. He swerved to the opposite side of the road. Most of us woke up when we felt the bus on the rumble strips and then the dirt. He woke up in time to swerve back onto our side of the road and pull over." Continuing he notes, "thank god there was no on coming cars or 18-wheelers on the road. Everyone is fine just a little nervous."

Candlelight Records today confirms three more in-store/meet-and-greets as part of Fear Factory's ongoing Fear Campaign American Tour 2010. All four members of the band will be available to meet with fans at Magnolia Thunderpussy in Columbus , Ohio on May 30, Digital Ferret Records in Philadelphia on June 6, and Vintage Vinyl Records in Fords, New Jersey on June 10.

The second leg of Fear Factory's Fear Campaign American Tour continues the band's ongoing promotion and the worldwide momentum surrounding the quartet's eighth studio album, Mechanize. Released February 9, the album has received amazing fan and media acclaim. The record is approaching 90,000 sales worldwide and continues to see significant weekly sales. The North American dates, now expanded to run through the end of July, follows the band's recent eight-day European tour supporting Metallica, and their successful performance at Revolver Magazine's Golden God Awards scheduled for television broadcast this Saturday via VH1.
