Industrial-tinged extreme metal pioneers, FEAR FACTORY are proud to announce their tenth studio album Aggression Continuum, will be released on June 18th via Nuclear Blast just in time for the band’s 30th anniversary. Today, FEAR FACTORY offers fans the first preview of the album with the music video for “Disruptor”. Watch the video, directed by Riivata Visuals, here: https://nblast.de/FF-Disruptor-YT
Dino Cazares comments, “This record is one of my proudest achievements and I’m really excited for it to finally be released. There were a lot of personal struggles, sacrifices, and legal issues involved with this record which almost didn’t see the light of day, but through passion determination, lots of hard work and not giving up the fight, it’s finally ready for the world to hear. I felt that I needed to prove myself once again as I always try and make each record better than the last. Listen, and understand! This album is pissed! It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear and it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are hooked. You must fight to survive in the Aggression Continuum.”

Aggression Continuum will be available in the following formats:

Aggression Continuum was mixed by A-list rock and metal producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, TRIVIUM), who also mixed the album’s critically-acclaimed predecessor, Genexus. The artwork for the album was created by Francesco Artusato.

FEAR FACTORY records are cinematic in scope; sonic landscapes, echoing the dystopian post-apocalyptic futures found in classic sci-fi literature and films, from Ray Bradbury to Blade Runner. Aggression Continuum, the tenth studio album, is the culmination of three decades of unforgettable songs, performances, and forward-thinking storytelling concepts, while simultaneously rebooting FEAR FACTORY onto a brilliant and excitingly unpredictable new path. Like the liquid metal T-1000 in the Terminator franchise or the Academy-Award winning reboot of Mad Max, Aggression Continuum is a turning point where what “was” transforms into what will be. It’s FEAR FACTORY’s own Fury Road.

October 31st 2020 is the 30 year anniversary of Fear Factory, The Birth of the Machine. We would like to thank you all for supporting us for all those years.
From day one we were different, we stood out. We pushed boundaries, we took chances and became genre defining. We were influential to many.
If we took every doubters advice, what you love about Fear Factory would not exist.
It’s all about taking risks and not fearing to redefine the machine. Fear Is The Mindkiller, Conquer the impossible, Do Not Fear The Future.
Calling all Fear Factory fans!
As the smoke clears on what has been a very long and arduous period for Fear Factory, we would firstly like to acknowledge our fans for supporting us and being very patient as we again find our footing after a long absence due to an intensive legal dispute.
We are relieved to report that the legal matter surrounding the Fear Factory name has now come to an end and the band is now able to move forward.
It has been a long road in getting to this point and it has certainly not been without it’s challenges both professionally and personally.
As it stands, Fear Factory are back, but are now facing an uncertain future financially and we need your help to restart the machine to get FF back up and running and firing on all cylinders. We’ve decided to take the unique step of reaching out to our fans to ask for help through a Gofundme page to finish the new album.
The money raised from our Gofundme campaign is going to be used to pay the production team working on the new album including our producer, mixing and mastering engineer, live recorded drums and artwork.
Any money raised above our goal will then go towards producing new music videos for the upcoming album which we are excited to get underway as soon as possible. We can’t wait for you guys to hear the new album, the hard work that we are putting into this record is going to make a huge impact on the overall sound and production quality to elevate it to become an amazing sounding and classic Fear Factory album. We are currently working towards a 2021 release.
We understand that the current situation with the global pandemic may make it difficult for a lot of our fans to contribute at this time, as we are also feeling the financial hardship due to the corona virus and recognize the struggles we are all facing at the moment.
We’d like to thank you all for the love and continued support over the last 30 years and hope that together, we can reach our goal.
Please share and help spread the word and also keep a look out, as we will be posting regular updates on the new album as it progresses for everyone to get a peak inside the gears of the machine and a look at the recording and post production process.
Stay safe, Stay positive and know that you have got the power to effect a change.
The machine is still alive!
