The promise of new Fear Factory has been pushed off to 2024. According to Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares in an interview with ADK Metal News, Reviews, Reactions & Interviews, the band should be wrapping things up in the studio next summer for a release in hopefully October or November. The new music will be Fear Factory's first with vocalist Milo Silvestro.
"We start October 6 going into December 17, and then we have Christmas break, obviously," said Cazares. "January we go back into the studio, start finishing more stuff from the [upcoming] record. And then late January, we've got another big tour coming up, which I can't say who it is yet, but it's gonna be a fucking killer package. And it's in the U.S. And that's gonna be another two-month tour. And then we've got some festivals — April, May, June and probably August. Then, in the summer, I need to take the summer off to finish the new record, get it out and then get back on the road probably by October, November next year again."
"It's a lot of planning. We're getting asked to do a lot of things and right now I've been saying yes, just to try to get the band back out there, try to get the band to rebuild our large live credibility. We want the fans to come back. And then you hit 'em with a new song and then you hit 'em with a new album. And you just get back out there and do it again."
Fear Factory has added a handful of headlining dates prior to their tour with Lacuna Coil and Lions At The Gate this October. The new dates will also be opened by Lions At The Gate, and you can get your tickets here.
