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!
