Fear Factory mark Demanufacture anniversary
Industrial icons confirm celebratory tour featuring classic album played in full
Fear Factory have announced a tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of iconic album Demanufacture.
The industrial icons hit the road in November on a European jaunt that sees them play the album in its entirety – as well as showcase songs from their upcoming ninth record Genexus, due out on August 7 via Nuclear Blast.
Singer Burton C Bell and guitarist Dino Cazares say: "If you'd told us in 1995 that we would be touring Demanufacture for its 20th anniversary, we would have said, 'Yeah 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.
The 1995 release – which followed 1992 debut Soul Of A New Machine – is considered the band’s defining work.
Genexus is the band's Nuclear Blast debut. Cazares says: “We wanted to create a new hybrid, something that summed up every aspect of who we are. You can hear the organic, the technological, the past and the future. It’s the next evolution of Fear Factory.”
