Fear Factory's long-awaited new album, and unfortunately final one with vocalist Burton C. Bell, is finally happening. The band has taken to YouTube to begin teasing the cover of the new album, which is noticeably nothing like the previously-rumored Monolith cover. Fear Factory notes a release date, pre-orders, and single are coming soon.
Previously, Dino teased the band would be putting out new music in 2021. Cazares said the main roadblock was an ongoing legal battle, and the project was currently without a label, and in need of financial help. This led to fans encouraging Dino to start a GoFundMe to help produce the record.
Bell distanced himself from the fundraiser after it was announced, posting on social media "Let me be clear, I am not part of, nor am I benefitting, from any GoFundMe campaign." Cazares began work on completing the new album, even releasing studio updates with new drummer Mike Heller.
