Fear Factory announce The 20th Anniversary Of Demanufacture tour

Formed in Los Angeles, California in 1990, Fear Factory changed the world of metal and have become a huge influence on the genre ever since their inception. The band’s unique sound helped bridge the gap between death metal, grindcore, thrash, and industrial on landmark releases like Soul Of A New Machine, Demanufacture, and the gold-selling release Obsolete.

Legendary pioneers of industrial-tinged extreme metal Fear Factory are proud to announce they will be touring Europe in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their highly revered second studio album Demanufacture. The tour will be a very rare event for fans with Fear Factory playing Demanufacture in its entirety!

They will also showcase songs from their highly anticipated new album Genexus - out 7th August via Nuclear Blast. You can see the lyric video for the first single Soul Hacker below.

Burton C. Bell and Dino Cazares had to say of this unique event 'If you had told us in 1995 that we would be touring Demanufacture for its 20th Anniversary in 2015, we would have said ya right! Get fucked!'.

The years have flown by in colourful and adventurous memory. 2015 has arrived, and Fear Factory will be performing Demanufacture in its entirety for the very first time for the UK and Ireland fans in December. 'We are very excited to perform this seminal album for the audience that made Demanufacture a legendary success.' 

Demanufacture, their second album (1995),was a landmark release for Fear Factory and for the metal genre. It is generally considered as the band’s defining work and a heavy metal classic with its refined production, industrial textures, precise musicianship and greater dimension of sound. It succeeded in giving the band a more futuristic feel than previous works.

The concept is based around one man’s struggles against a machine controlled government – with each song marking a chapter in his life, taking huge inspiration from the Terminator film series.

Relationship with Producer Rhys Fulber continues to this day, him having worked with Fear Factory on Demanufacture and Genexus plus many works in the interim. 

Genexus is Fear Factory’s 9th studio album (their Nuclear Blast debut record) and was produced by vocalist Burton C. Bell and guitarist Dino Cazares, (and co-produced by Rhys Fulber).

The album was mixed by famed British producer and engineer, Andy Sneap (Arch Enemy, Testament, Exodus, Machine Head). Artwork for was handled by artist Anthony Clarkson and drums on were performed by Mike Heller (Malignancy).

Guitarist and founding songwriter Dino Cazares had to say on Genexus 'We wanted to create a new hybrid, something that summed up every aspect of who we are. Musically. Lyrically. You can hear the organic, the technological; the past and the future. It’s the next evolution of Fear Factory.'

'We would like to thank everyone who has been a big part in the making of this record. We can't wait for everybody to hear it.'
