FEAR FACTORY – Announce Tour Cancellation

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, industrial metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on July 4, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Due to reasons well beyond the band’s control, FEAR FACTORY will not be taking part in this Summer’s Shockwave Tour, slated to commence July 6 in Seattle.

Commented the band in a collective statement: “We are truly disappointed not to be part of the Shockwave tour. We send our sincerest apologies to all our North American fans planning to come out this Summer, but we will be back. Please look for FEAR FACTORY headlining dates in August.”

FEAR FACTORY recently unleashed their latest full-length, The Industrialist, Stateside on June 5 via Candlelight Records.  Commended by Revolver in a 4/5 review for offering up “the same pulsating, angry urgency of old…nicely counterbalanced by some incredibly deft melodies,” called “…a well-orchestrated montage of universal agitation and despair,” by Alarm, and crowned “…their most aggressive offering to date,” by Exclaim, 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.
