FEAR FACTORY are currently in the studio working on their latest album and guitarist Dino Cazares has uploaded two short videos of the band doing just that.
The first video shows producer Damien Rainaud working on drummer Mike Heller’s drum kit sounds, while the second features Rainaud putting together some cinematic sounds for a song intro.
On Friday (September 11), Cazares issued a statement clarifying his reasons for launching a GoFundMe campaign to assist him with the production costs associated with the release of the new LP.
In his statement, Cazares said that all donations will go toward covering newly incurred production costs involved with the making of the new FEAR FACTORY LP, including re-recording the drums, guitars, bass and keyboards, as well as mixing and mastering by Andy Sneap. Burton’s original lead vocals, which were recorded in full in 2017, will remain on the new version of the album.
FEAR FACTORY’s fundraising campaign marks the first public activity from the band since it completed a 2016 U.S. headlining tour on which it performed its classic second album, “Demanufacture”, in its entirety.
In a November 2018 interview, Bell said that FEAR FACTORY had completed a new album tentatively titled “Monolith”. He also said that “legal technicalities” needed to be sorted out before the record could be released. The effort will mark the Californian band’s first collection of new music since 2015’s “Genexus” LP.
